    We buy a new Disney planning book each year to make sure we don't miss any updates of changes. Is there a certain book you recommend for 2012? We have children ages 10, 9, and 3. Thanks

    Hi Shannon!

    If you were a first time visitor, I would recommend "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Julie and Mike Neal.  I think it is a great book for first time visitors because it has a lot of information without being overwhelming.  It is also a beautiful book full of color photographs.

    However, since it sounds like you've been many times, I suggest instead picking up the book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World" by Len Testa.  It's a great resource full of a lot of information and details; it's my "go to book" when I need to look something up or need to find out something like where are the best rooms in a resort, or how long does it take to drive from a resort to the Magic Kingdom, etc.  No other book even comes close in terms of the amount of information you will find in the "Unofficial Guide". 

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
