"Man! I love everything. I like the pockets and the maps and the details and the maps an the tips and the pockets! "
-- comment submitted by Allison Prker (2015-01-10 18:01:29)

"organized and very informative "
-- comment submitted by Lynn Maloney (2015-01-02 15:01:54)

"The color pictures; fold out maps; elastic band; restaurant summaries and ratings; ... Just about everything. I bought this for our first ever trip to Disney World for our retirement trip and it was so nice to have a chance to do some advance planning since I knew absolutely nothing about Disney at that time. We have since been back six times. I buy this book for gifts for anyone going to Disney and they love it! "
