    Hi again! Going to WDW 4/12-4/18. Looking for recommendations on what guidebook to get my son. He will be almost 6 when we go this spring. Thanks so much!

    Hi, Lisa!   For our last trip to Disney this past December, I bought "Guide to the Magic for Kids" by Tim Foster.  I got each of my kids (ages 5 and 9) a copy, and gave them their books right before we got on the airplane.  The books kept them so busy, they didn't even notice our 2 hour flight to Orlando!  There are stickers, activities, wonderful photos, and fun trivia throughout the book.  There is even a place for character autographs, so this becomes quite a keepsake.

    Since we returned home, their books are still being used!   Just this morning, my son was reading through the book marking attractions he doesn't want to miss on our next trip. 

    Another reason I like this book is that it is spiral bound, so it lays flat when they are writing in it.  To read more about this guidebook, go to    I think you will find it is a guidebook the whole family will enjoy.
