    Hi Heather! Looking for a new guide-book for WDW. Saw in your video the PassPorters Range. I saw you had a few different types...which is best? Also do you know where i could get one, and is the full price worth it, or should i wait for it to come on sale?

    I'm HUGE fan of Passporter!  They include park maps, timing information for buses and walking in parks, detailed contact info for all Disney resources, how and where to find discounts...I could go on all day.  :)

    I definitely believe they're worth full price...but there are discounts out there as well.  You can order a copy from  There is also a message board at that location - click the 'community' tab.  If you join the community you'll find discounts available there. 

    The guidebooks are sold in many shops here in the States (I picked up my first one at a Borders), but I'm not sure if they are on shelves overseas or not.

    I had several different ones in my video, including:

    • Passporter Walt Disney World - everything you need to know about WDW including reader ratings of resorts and attractions, kid friendly reviews of rides and attractions, and lots of details about the little things.
    • Passporter Open Mouse - A book for planning a Disney vacation with special needs, ranging from a wheelchair to autism, pregnancy to name it!  This book is especially helpful for people 'of size' - they call this the Pooh sized traveler :)
    • Passporter Disney Cruise Line - Everything you'll ever need to know about taking a Disney cruise
    • Passporter Treasure Hunts - fun, fun, fun!  Great especially for older kids and adults, though there are lots of questions that my 3 and 5 year olds could answer too!  There are sections dedicated to each of the theme parks and resorts, as well as Disney Cruise line, Downtown Disney, and more.  A very fun, non-traditional way to play in a theme park.

    There are many more books available as well.  When you visit, click on the right hand side of the screen for the complete guidebook and merchandise store.
