Sensible Touring Plans
What do those Walt Disney World guidebook authors know? Well, they know a lot, and sometimes that's the problem: they forget what it's like to visit Disney World with a family, not as ruthless ride maximizers. This guidebook shelves the statistics and preaches the practical.
You know people like Trisha Daab. They're the ones who get all the Disney trip planning questions, because their trips always turn out so well. But when Trisha became a (not-so-evil) stepmother, she needed all her pixie dust to help plan Disney vacations for a larger, more diverse brood, ranging from infants to elders.
No matter the size of your family, Trisha has you covered. Her many trips to Disney World over the past ten years have spanned romantic getaways for couples (including her wedding!) and excursions for crowds (11 relatives sure can seem like a crowd).
She dispenses practical, doable advice, battle tested in the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and everywhere else at the most magical place on earth, plus perspectives from her many family members who offer their own tips.
If you're looking for sensible touring plans, not lockstep logistics that keep you on the clock as you race from ride to ride, this is the guidebook for you.
As they often say (well, no one really says this): a not-so-evil stepmother shall lead them!
When the Author of this book contacted me about reading and reviewing I was very excited! After all, my family and I have been hoping to start planning a Disney vacation within the next couple of years (we hope)!
This book was not only very informative and helpful, but full of adventure and fun too! I liked reading through to take advantage of the many tips, tricks and helpful hints that Trisha Daab provides! My daughter loved reading along at the fun stories and anecdotes that were throughout the book. She has been dreaming of a Disney vacation (as have I) so it was fun to vicariously live through Trisha and her family!
This book gives so many helpful tips from an experienced Disney Visitor and her family of up to 11 people on their visits to Disney. There is everything from restaurant suggestions, fast pass tips and even a park breakdown and tips on when to visit and what to do when there. She even breaks down how she and her large family each get to do the things they REALLY want to do while there.
All in all, this book was packed with so much valuable information and was so much fun to read. It didn’t feel like a boring travel book at all! When my family and I are finally able to visit Disney, I will definitely break this one out again for review!
Have you ever been to Disney?
Do you think that a book of tips would help?
