Author Biography

When Steve Birnbaum launched this guide in 1981, he made it clear what was expected of anyone who worked on it: The book would be meticulously revised each year, leaving no attraction untested, no snack or meal untasted, no hotel untried. First-hand experiences like these, accumulated over the years, make this book the most authoritative guide to the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.

Our expertise, however, is not achieved by being escorted through back doors of attractions (although we would enjoy that). Instead, we wait in lines with everyone else, always hoping to have a Disney experience like that of any other guest.

While Walt Disney World has vastly expanded, and so has our knowledge of the most popular vacation destinations on the planet. On some occasions we've encountered sweltering weather and swelling crowds, times when even the happiest of travelers can turn into Grumpy for a moment or two. Had we known then what we know now, we could have spared ourselves some trying experiences.

In one case, a staffer waited more than an hour to get on an attraction. Standing in line with a notebook, she was asked by another guest if there was a quiz at the end. When she explained what she was doing, he expressed surprise to learn that she was waiting with the masses. But that's always been our strategy.
We believe the best way to gather useful advice for a Disney park guest is to be one. Over and over again!

PAGE 7: GETTING READY TO GO
Here is all the practical information you need to organize a Walt Disney World visit down to the smallest detail: when to go, how to get there, how to save money and work within a budget, how to secure theme park tickets and reservations, and how to customize a Walt Disney World MagicBand. Plus sample schedules and hints for parents, international travelers, travelers with disabilities, singles, couples, and older visitors.

PAGE 61: TRANSPORTATION & ACCOMMODATIONS
Two big questions about Walt Disney World are where to stay and how to get around. The accommodations range from concierge suites to modest campsites, with thousands of rooms and villas in between. Our guide describes every Disney resort, with details presented in a handy chart. And we explain the World’s vast transportation system, to boot.

PAGE 113: MAGIC KINGDOM
The enchantment of Walt Disney World is most apparent in the wealth of attractions and amusements that fill this, its original theme park. Our land-by-land guide describes all there is to see and do in this classic play zone, plus plenty of other insider tips and the scoop on new additions for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration.

PAGE 143: EPCOT
A gleaming silver geosphere introduces Disney’s wonderland of discovery—an ambitious exploration of the world of the future as well as the present. The park’s four neighborhoods offer every visitor the opportunity to be a global and cerebral voyager, without setting foot outside Florida. Here’s how to make the most of this uniquely fascinating destination.

PAGE 175: DISNEY’S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS
Now’s your chance to be part of Disney’s Hollywood adventure! Everything from controlling the Millennium Falcon to a Frozen sing-along to a trip to The Twilight Zone™ and the excitement of daring stunts and special effects is waiting to be enjoyed. There are also opportunities to bond with Disney characters and experience a thrill ride or two. We have developed strategies for seeing this Tinseltown, ensuring the most fun possible.

PAGE 197: DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM
The most sprawling member of WDW’s theme park lineup celebrates the circle of life and the wonders of Earth’s animal kingdom. Amid nature’s majesty, guests experience a stirring safari, dodge dastardly dinosaurs, and ride raging rapids. Our coverage, which includes the beloved land, Pandora—The World of Avatar, guarantees a fun-filled trip to a place where humans are humbly reminded of their role in the natural world.

PAGE 217: EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD
Beyond the theme park boundaries lie countless acres full of just the sort of wonders for which Disney is famous: state-of-the-art water parks and the dynamic Disney Springs entertainment, shopping, and dining district among them. So if you want to ride down watery slides, dance the night away, shop at elegant boutiques, pamper yourself at a spa, or experience behind-the-scenes tours, this chapter will help you find your way.

PAGE 245: SPORTS & RECREATION
Walt Disney World has more tennis courts and golf greens than most posh resorts, plus plenty of places for boating, biking, horseback riding, swimming, and fishing. Here’s how to combine these options with the rest of the WDW fun.

PAGE 253: GOOD MEALS, GREAT TIMES
Restaurants around Disney World property run the gamut from simple snack shops to bastions of haute cuisine. Choices are nearly endless, so we’ve organized them in an area-by-area directory that lets you know where each restaurant is located and what specialties it offers. We also tell you about the Disney Dining Plan, WDW’s reservations system, dinner shows, where to dine with Disney characters, and where to enjoy an after-dinner drink.

PAGE 317: DISNEY CRUISE LINE
Many guests choose to make a Walt Disney World visit even more magical by pairing it with a cruise to the Caribbean or the Bahamas—the ultimate Land and Sea vacation, Disney style. This “bonus” chapter tells you how to plan it.
