    Q#5 :) Trip is booked 02/26-3/05, our ADR's are made, I have an idea of itinerary, I have scoured the Birnbaum Guide 2010, Mom's Panel, Disboards & Mousesavers. Are there any other resources I'm missing? Is it worth it to purchase "The Passporter&

    Great to hear from you again Lisa!

    Sounds like you've got an AWESOME start on planning your trip & you are on top of it! Well of course the DW Moms Panel is the hottest place for great pixie dust filled advice ;-)  

    Along w/ all the official WDW resources, I have used a lot of other resources during my own personal vacation planning. The resources I mention here is by no means a complete list. I'm limited in space when answering a question & I don't want to upset anyone by not mentioning any particular sites as there are so many awesome ones.

    Moms Panelist Doug has written a great book called The Complete Idiot's Guide to Walt Disney World that you may find very helpful. He also developed the Walt Disney World Complete Travel Guide iPhone Application which is available for download & very handy to have while you're on the go.

    While you'll find many Disney Moms Panelists rockstars in our videos that we can link to, we don't have the capability of posting pictures that may sometimes be helpful. For example, there is a section on (great unofficial source) that shows pictures of many of the actual ride vehicles. This comes in super handy for guests w/ mobility issues or parents that are traveling solo w/ small children & trying to figure out if they can all ride in the same vehicle. offers some great $ saving tips along w/ some other valuable info. The PassPorter's WDW is a great resource & if you plan to travel to WDW again in the future (& I so hope you do!) you may find it worth the $ to purchase it.

    Keep in mind that info found on unofficial websites should be confirmed as things change quickly & info current today, may indeed change tomorrow. Continuing to wish you many magical memories :-) Allison
