People are always asking me about a good Disney guidebook. My favorite is Birnbaum’s Walt Disney World. They usually have a new addition each year. I think it is comfortable to read and gives you the essential information. It doesn’t go into the detail that other books will go into, but gives you plenty of info on all the activities in Disney World. There are lots of pictures too and I enjoy looking at the book with the kids. It is also organized so that it is easy to find information quickly. There are companion books such as Birnbaum’s Walt Disney World for Kids and Birnbaum’s Walt Disney World Dining Guide. I have not read these other books but I am sure they are great since they are also from Birnbaum.
Another fun book to bring on a trip to Disney is Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World’s Best Kept Secrets. It can be a lot of fun to look for all the hidden mickey’s around Walt Disney World, especially if your kids are a little older.
