A: Yes, many photos, over 75 -- and all in FULL COLOR! We've included more than we put in
our general Walt Disney World or our Disney Cruise Line guides, in fact. Most of our photos are
original, and some include fellow Disney vacationers, peer reviewers,
authors, and publishers.
Q: Can I add and
remove pages in the guide?
Yes, if you purchase the Deluxe Starter Kit.
Q: Why should plan my vacation in advance?
A: We enjoy the thrill of venturing into the unknown just
as much as the next person. Even so, when vacation time is so precious and vacation costs
are so high, why risk wasting hours or even entire days of your vacation because you were
unprepared? The stress of constant on-the-fly decision making, the disappointment of lost
opportunities and the waste of limited vacation dollars hardly adds up to a pleasant,
rejuvenating vacation. And when you have special needs, it is of particular importance to carefully plan your trip. A little up-front investment in planning and organization helps
ensure a wonderful journey and a lifetime of happy memories.
Q: Is PassPorter
A: Yes! PassPorter is updated in two ways: First, we offer a special page of Book Updates which lists page-by-page changes you should know about.
Second, besides the updates we place on our Web site, we
also plan to offer new editions of PassPorter Disneyland on an annual basis.If you would like to be kept informed of updates, revisions, and
new editions, please subscribe to our informative newsletter.
Q: Are other
PassPorters in the works?
A: Yes, "we have several projects in the works! More to be announced later.
Q: How can I protect
my PassPorter and keep it safe?
A: We carry our PassPorters around in waist packs (a.k.a.
"fanny packs"). This keeps
our PassPorters handy and protects them from loss and bad weather. The waist pack needs a
main compartment of at least 5.5" x 9" to hold your PassPorter comfortably. (We used to sell these through our store,
but our supplier stopped making the pack we liked!) We also use day packs with good
results, and some travel-oriented shoulder bags will work well. And if you need
down-and-dirty protection, a resealable plastic bag (gallon size) does the trick.
Q: How big/small is
A: The dimensions of the Disneyland spiral edition are 9" x
6 1/2" and about 1" thick.
Q: Do you offer any
discounts or coupons?
A: Actually, yes! We usually have at least one discount
going on at any one time -- at this time, all PassPorters have an automatic 15% discount
through our online store. We also offer electronic
coupons to everyone who registers a previous copy of PassPorter.
Q: Why do you call
it a PassPorter?
A: Frankly, we just thought it would be fun to have a
book that we could abbreviate to "P.P." All kidding aside, there are two main
reasons we chose PassPorter:
1. Passports intrigue us -- they are synonymous with
travel and adventure! By definition, a passport is "something that secures admission,
acceptance, or attainment," such as "this book is your passport to Disney
fun." Sounds good to us!
2. By adding "er" to the end to create
"PassPorter," we give our trusty word a whole new meaning: something that
carries passes. Our general Walt Disney World guide does that (and more!)
