"It is so comprehensive. I have been a special education preschool teacher for the city of Newton in Massachusetts for almost 20 years, and your descriptions of the various disabilities and areas of challenge were absolutely amazing! I bought it because I was going to Disney a few weeks ago with a broken foot. Unfortunatley we ended up cancelling, because my husband thought it would be too much with our 4 young daughters (all aged between 5 and 10 years old). But I felt completely prepared after reading open mouse! I am also because now I know where to send the families in my class to buy a book that will greatly support them in answering any questions that may have when planning or even considering a trip to Disney with their child with special needs. " -- Jennifer McGarvey (2011-08-02 15:08:16)

"It is an excellent informational tool. I have one with aspergers, and one asthmatic, so I need the reinforcement that this book provides. I think you should add a list of some of the quick comebacks that I've read on the forum to this book. For example... "I'd be happy to trade you places in line, in fact I'd wait in all the lines if you could make my child neuro-normal!" Or a quick response when people stare when your child has a melt down for no obvious reason." -- Kriston Haag (2011-05-18 22:05:05)

"info on asthma/allergies It has great info on how to not just survive but enjoy Disney with health issues. Thanks! :) " -- Lenore Gooden (2011-05-14 20:05:42)

"I loved everything! Especially the page that told me about the guest assistance card. We had taken our special needs son to DL a few times and never knew about it. It made a world of difference. Also, all the info about food issues and what to do and who to contact. Yes, maybe a title change so the book is more visible to people online, in a bookstore, etc.. As a parent of a special needs child, I wouldn't have given a second glance at a book called Open Mouse. Luckily, someone gave it to me as a gift." -- Christine Mair (2011-05-01 00:05:43)

"information about obtaining a Guest Assistance Card and a tag to use our stroller as a wheelchair more info towards physical disabilities and not as much for how to help families of children with special needs (not necessarily a physical disability) " -- Lane McElree (2011-04-27 12:04:50)

"info about special needs nothing no" -- Melissa Ciener (2011-04-25 23:04:05)

I'm donating my copy to the small library at my employer (The Arc of Prince George's County, in MD). I'll still be able to consult it when needed (the library is just outside of my office) while also making it available to staff and families of people with special needs." -- Willie Walter (2011-04-06 08:04:09)

"It is the "Special Needs" version that I was a contributor to. The First Edition--great info. " -- Mikki Steiner (2011-03-08 21:03:34)

"I really liked the whole thing - the format, the ratings, the info pertaining to each disability for each attraction and hotel, etc Passporter is a really great book and I'm glad I found it and bought it over that other guidebook I used to buy all the time. I really appreciate the tips for each special need in the attraction descriptions as some of the tips are things I would never have thought about until it was too late." -- Darlene Heidke (2011-03-04 16:03:12)
