    Can you recommend a Disney Travel Guide Book? I am planning our trip for 4/16/13. Resort and dining have been booked. Now looking to learn great tips for our family traveling with a 3.5 year old and a 1.5 year old..

    Hi Kimberly!

    This is a great question.  I recommend three books in general.  The first two are great for infrequent visitors:
    • "The Complete Walt Disney World" by Julie and Mike Neal.
    • "PassPorter's Walt Disney World" by Jennifer Marx
    • "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World" by Len Testa
    "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World" is my "go to" book whenever I need to look up any detail information on Walt Disney World, but it can be overwhelming for an infrequent guest who is just looking for general guidance.  "The Complete Walt Disney World" is one of the most beautiful guide books that I have ever seen as it is full of color photographs.  You might want to head to a local bookstore and examine all three books in person before buying one.  If you can't decide, buy all three!  I have all three right next to my computer at home!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
