As we were preparing to travel to Disney World, a lot of people wanted to offer me advice. And lots and lots of advice. As a writer, I requested suggestions. And, OMG, I had no idea how many suggestions I’d receive. Its like everyone and her mother and grandmother has a travel agency, a travel guide, a travel book and a travel tip to share. And I couldn’t believe just how many people out there are “former cast members.” From my overnight camp theater counselor to my current stylist, they all worked there.
So, in addition to all the advice I received, brought along a few books on my trip. My absolute favorite guide was PassPorter’s Walt Disney World 2010: The Unique Travel Guide, Planner, Organizer, Journal, and Keepsake!. I read it front to back before I left for Orlando. And then, once there, I read it in sections and refered to it anytime we had a question. Or a change of plan. Or just needed a refresher before leaving the door. I’m telling you. If you’re going to Disney World, this book is absolutely a must-bring.
I also brought along The Disney Queue Line Survival Guidebook which, written by a former cast member, is a book intended to use in the parks as you wait in those dreadful lines. At each ride, it provides quizzes, things to look for, and trivia about the ride and the part of the parks right by you. We were lucky, our lines were never longer than 10 minutes, so I didn’t find the book to be a necessity to carry. However, I did enjoy reading it during off times and quizzing my kids.
The Disney Queue Line Survival Guidebook was received as a sample.
