The bottom line with Walt Disney World is that it's very, very big--so big that you won't be able to see everything in a single visit. With 43 square miles of entertainment to explore (an area twice the size of Manhattan), that means you need to choose, in advance, what you want to do. That's where the Unofficial Guide comes in. It describes the many Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, and Magic Kingdom options, with candid reviews that don't just parrot Disney promotions, and it helps you construct a plan so that the overwhelming extravaganza of Disney World doesn't turn you into a Disney caricature of fear, knees-a-knockin' and sweat-a-streamin'. (Think Elmer Fudd with a shotgun in his face.)
The Unofficial Guide researchers are not, however, just a bunch of control freaks. They discuss existentialism. They claim to be all for spontaneity, in jazz, for example, or cooking. "When it comes to Walt Disney World, however, we all agree that you either need a good plan or a frontal lobotomy." They further agree that the purpose of the plan is not to tick off the activities on your list and make it to the end of the day. It's to enable you to enjoy, to actually experience, the many moments that make up a day at Walt Disney World. What a concept!
The Guide includes essential advice on navigating lines, dealing with line-hoppers, and attempting to eat without going broke. It provides excellent maps as well as lodging recommendations and budget options. Because your Walt Disney World preferences will likely be different depending on whether you're a family, a couple, a group of singles, or a pair of honeymooners, there are tailored suggestions for a variety of visitors, including tips for seniors, disabled guests, and expectant mothers. The Unofficial Guide is a fun and lively read, but it's also exceptionally useful. Unlike, say, a Magic Kingdom all-you-can-eat experience, it's a small investment for a very beneficial return. --Stephanie GoldFrom the Publisher:
