    Hi moms! I read an answer about a book Erin recommended that helped with touring plans & I can't find it! Would you let me know the name of the book & author. This will be our 1st trip to WDW and want to get info @ best rides & info for DS9 &a

    I don't know exactly which post you read, but these are the books that I typically recommend to Disney visitors. The first one on this list has a great section of touring plans in the back:

    - The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World by Bob Sehlinger and Len Testa
      This is a MUST HAVE for any Disney visitor. They also run a great website called

    - Birnbaum's Walt Disney World by Birnbaum Travel Guides and Alex Wright
      The official guide to WDW. Good for photos.

    - PassPorter's Walt Disney World by Jennifer Marx, Dave Marx, and Allison Cerel
      Good overall planning guide and easy-to-read maps

    - PassPorter's Open Mouse for Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line by Deb Wills and Debra Martin Koma
      Essential information for anyone traveling to WDW with physical or mental challenges

    - The Complete Walt Disney World by Julie and Mike Neal
      Fabulous "behind the scenes" info about the parks.

    These books are all available on and I have seen them all at my local Borders and Barnes & Noble bookshops. To be fully prepared, every Disney guest should purchase (or get from the library) the Unofficial Guide and at least one or two of the others.

    Hope this is what you needed.
