PassPorter Walt Disney World 2002: The Unique Travel Guide, Planner, Organizer, Journal, and Keepsake!

(Expanded for Use Through 2003)

By Jennifer Watson, Dave Marx, and Allison Cerel Marx
How many pouches, pockets, bags, and purses do you want to carry at Walt Disney World? And how well will you remember, amid the clamor and frenzy, which sack holds your entry tickets and which your meal coupons, where you put that map and what you did with the hotel reservations? Among the jumble of guidebooks and cameras, souvenirs and sunglasses, important slips of paper elude panicky fingers. But it needn't be so.

The PassPorter is a brilliant travel aid. It boasts 14 sturdy manila pockets, each clearly labeled, so you know which holds important travel papers (like tickets, itineraries, and maps); which houses papers pertaining to your lodgings; and where to store all the notes, plans, tickets, pamphlets, coupons, and numerous etceteras for each day of Walt Disney World exploration; as well as extra slots for ticket stubs, receipts, and small souvenirs. These pocket pages are also designed for recording important information, such as flight, train, or bus details; target travel budgets; and what you plan to do and where you plan to visit on any given day. Each page has space for jotting down notes and memories of the trip, from meals to weather to the best and worst thing of each day. If you're not an avid journal keeper, these quick notes may keep your many experiences from running together into one hectic jumble.

The pockets alone make this a useful take-along, but the PassPorter is a thorough source of information as well. There are chapters on planning your adventure, lodging options from hotel to resort, plus a full guide to all the sites and attractions of Walt Disney World, as well as passes, special programs, food options, and maps. With a durable-laminated cover, spiral notebook design, and back page of phone numbers (everything from Walt Disney World information to the weather line to MedicClinic), this is possibly the most practical, sanity-saving guide you could take along to Disney World.

Vacation Guide to Disney World for Scrapbooker

By Dennis and Karen Sullivan
With the Vacation Guide to Disney World for Scrapbookers, you can bring home the most important part of your vacation, the pleasant memories of your experiences. This book shows you how to capture memories, in four unique ways.

First, although Orlando is an extraordinary place to have fun, it is easy for people to forget most of the things that they see and do. There are so many experiences, one right after another, that they won't all sink in unless you fix the memories in your mind right away. The "Talk About It!" sections of this book guide family discussions about the attractions, right on the spot. Use them to compare experiences and relive the details of a ride while you stop for a snack or wait in the next line. You will remember more of the fun things you saw and spend quality time talking to each other, too. There are "Talk About It!" sections for most major attractions.

Second, back at home, there usually is little to prompt you to recall the pleasant memories of your vacation (certainly not the credit card bills). You already know the solution to this problem; MAKE SCRAPBOOKS. The "Imagine That!" sections of this book are filled with tips and suggestions for your scrapbooks. Make pages based on the outstanding make-believe themes in Orlando resorts, parks and attractions. Sample page layouts are not included. There are many other books and magazines with these types of examples. Instead, this book provides idea seeds based on the unique fantasy themes and experiences you will find in Orlando. Put together these theme park page ideas with your favorite layouts, and make some really creative scrapbooks. Don't be limited to scrapbooks, either. Try one of the memory-prompting alternatives to traditional scrapbooks.

Third, in order to bring home positive memories, you must plan. You can't bring home the best memories if you didn't experience them in the first place. The Vacation Guide to Disney World for Scrapbookers has descriptions and details on all seven Orlando theme parks, plus Disney resorts, so you can decide what to see. Pick the parks and attractions your family would like. At the same time, you should be using the scrapbook idea seeds to start thinking about your page themes, and planning where you will get pictures and other memory materials.

Fourth, you can take a little break from your vacation and get your gift shopping done. This edition has a special bonus section, the "Disney Shopping Guide for Gift Givers." Disney stores have toys and souvenirs, of course, but you will be surprised how much more you can find. Special shops have outstanding selections of household items, art, clothing, craft items, etc. from around the world. Disney buyers really do use as much imagination as the ride designers. Make your vacation live through the gifts you find to bring home. The Shopping Guide pinpoints locations of the great shops. They are on Disney property and easily reached on the excellent resort transportation system. Shop descriptions include merchandise samples and prices.

Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World

By Diane Bair and Pamela Wright
This lively guide lives up to its title by page 5, when it poses the question, "What do Viagra and Walt Disney World have in common?" (Answer: you have to wait an hour for a two-minute ride. B-dum-bum.) Savvy authors Diane Bair and Pamela Wright amuse and inform as they deliver the lowdown on where to see Mickey M. in "person," dump your sullen teens for a few hours, or book a much-needed "serenity massage" after a long day of toddler-wrangling. Handily divided into sections covering accommodations, dining, diversions, and so forth, this wry tome leaves no stone unturned or bloated cartoon character unpunctured. Perhaps most valuable is the flinty, no-nonsense analysis of the various themed Disney hotels--which ones appeal to children, which to adults, and which are best avoided altogether. And if you have any energy left after the Magic Kingdom spits you out, you'll also find info on the Orlando area's other attractions--can you really afford to miss Gatorland?

Description from Amazon.com

Looking for a travel guide that goes where other guides fear to tread? One that rides roughshod over ad-copy puffery to smartly deliver the real scoop on a destination's sites and attractions? One that dares to be honest, hip, and fun? Look no more. Frommer's Irreverent Travel Guides are wickedly irreverent, unabashedly honest, and downright hilarious, and provide an insider's perspective on which attractions are overrated tourist traps and which are the secret gems that locals love. You'll get the lowdown on restaurants, lodging, and shopping, and even find out what the locals think of you. "Like being taken around by a savvy local," said the New York Times. "Hipper and savvier than other guides," concurred Diversion magazine. Never shy about confronting the issues, the Irreverents are guides to real travel in the real world.

It's said that if you can't have fun at Walt Disney World, you may want to check your pulse. But you don't have to be driven mad either by the crowds, the aggressive good cheer, or the gloppy sentiment. With the smart, funny, and straight-shooting Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World you won't lose your mind--or your kids. Find out which rides and attractions are really worth seeing--and those you shouldn't waste your time on. Find out which Disney food is really worth eating and which isn't. Get insider tips on beating the system, such as how to avoid standing in long lines, and how to get a room with a view. With this refreshingly honest guide your trip to the Magic Kingdom will be both supremely manageable and deliciously fun.

Collectively, the authors have visited Walt Disney World Resort more than fifty times since its opening in 1971—and in Making Memories, they share all they have learned to get the most out of a Disney vacation. Many other Disney veterans offer their personal tips, as well.

Certainly, you’ll find the necessary planning information. But during your journey through this unique guide, you’ll also feel a strong sense of amazement, of delight and anticipation, similar to the sensation you’ll get as you approach the entrance to the Magic Kingdom. And with Aronda Parks’ special insights and candor—and more than 85 charts, sidebars and worksheets to help you plan—you’ll find yourself well-prepared to show everyone in your family a grand time with Mickey Mouse and the Gang.
