I had never read a Disney guide book. Going to the parks has always been a spur of the moment type of thing so I never really planned. The only time I did somewhat plan was for my honeymoon and the trip kind of turned out bad. After getting the chance to review the PassPorter’s Walt Disney World Guidebook 2014, I realize the importance of reading a Disney guide book. Reading any Disney guidebook won’t do though, you must read the PassPorter’s guidebooks to fully appreciate all the aspects of the parks!
Here are 4 things I love about the PassPorter’s Walt Disney World Guidebook 2014.
- The Completeness. The authors of this book are veteran park goers and share everything you would ever want to know about how to vacation at Walt Disney World. They take you step by step through the entire process beginning on how to book your travel plans to extra tips on how to make your trip more magical. They include facts and also their opinions.
- The Planners and Pockets. The Passporter’s Walt Disney Guide book has so many planning pages that you can use. Some of the planning pages include a budget worksheet, a travel worksheet, a packing list, lodging worksheet, attraction checklists, meal worksheet, ADR pages, and many more! Along with all those handy planning pages there are these cool pocket pages where you can make daily plans, write down your special memories (great for a scrapbooker like me), note space for next time, and of course the pockets to put some tokens like ticket stubs and receipts. The people at PassPorter’s thought of everything!!
- The Pictures. This book is loaded with pictures. Full color pull out maps, pictures of attractions, resort rooms and delicious food almost fill every page of this book.
- The Details. This book is crammed with details! Want prices on meals? Sizes of rooms? Height requirements for rides? Special tour prices? This book has all that information. My favorite detail is the important phone numbers on the back cover.
I was also given the chance to review the PassPorter’s Disney Cruise Line Guidebook. Going on a Disney Cruise is on my bucket list. My husband and I plan to take one on our 10th anniversary which is in a couple years. Reading the PassPorter’s Guide has only added to my excitement regarding the planning of my cruise trip. The book includes everything!! I especially loved that they went over the first day’s itinerary because there is so much to do to get settled in. I also liked that they included so much information on the rooms, including how much space is included (with pictures).
Planning a trip soon? I urge you to pick up a copy of this book, even if you are a veteran local park-goer. To quote Pocahontas, “You’ll learn things, you never knew, you never knew”.
Now for the fun part!! The wonderful people over at PassPorter’s also gave me copies of the books for a giveaway!! One person is going to win the Walt Disney World PassPorter’s Guide 2014 and the Walt Disney Cruise Line Guide 2014, and a $25 Disney Gift Card!
