(PRWEB) November 6, 1999
The size and scope of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida is enough to make the most seasoned traveler shiver. Disney has packed four major theme parks and twenty resort hotels into those fabled 47 Florida square miles. With all those choices, how can an everyday Mom and Pop hope to deliver a family vacation to remember? Planning! say Walt Disney World vacation veterans Jennifer Watson and Dave Marx. The vast Walt Disney World complex is not designed for procrastinators or last-minute travelers. Without a plan, a Disney vacation is nowhere near as much fun, and can quickly sink a familys finances. A plan and a budget will keep your vacation happily afloat.
Watson and Marx put their advice where it could help others by writing PassPorter Walt Disney World® The unique travel guide, planner, organizer, journal, and keepsake! (©1999, $ 19.95 pb, Spread the Word Press). Not content to write just another travel guide, the authors continue where every other guide leaves off. In one neat, spiral-bound package theyve combined a 216-page travel guide with 11 custom organizer PassPockets, creating a proven planning system for the perfect vacation.
What do you do with a PassPocket? Write your vacation itinerary on the front of each pocket before you go, store maps, tickets, and receipts inside the pocket while youre there, and record your memories and expenses on the back to review when you return home! If you’ve ever jammed loose papers, maps, tickets, and brochures between the pages of a groaning travel guide, you’ll want to give PassPorter a look-see!
Printed front-and-back with fill-in-the-blank sections for itineraries, To-Do lists, notes, expenses, meals, photos taken, and cherished memories, PassPockets make organized travel a snap! One pocket is dedicated to travel plans, another pocket is for lodging, seven one-a-day pockets are dedicated to vacation fun, and a final pocket saves special memories.
Although the PassPockets put PassPorter Walt Disney World® in a league by itself, the travel guide section can easily stand on its own. The Disney-owned resort hotels get special attention. Visitors can spend more on lodging than they do at the theme parks, Watson notes, so we dedicate four pages to every Disney resort. Choosing the right resort is a far more serious decision than picking which rides to enjoy. You can change your mind about a ride at the last minute. After all, hidden and unexpected discoveries are a big part of the magic at the Disney parks. Your lodging decision sticks with you for your entire visit.
Which is not to say that the theme parks get short shrift. Each of the four major parksMagic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, and Disneys Animal Kingdomget a six-page layout, complete with maps and a concise description of every ride and attraction. Disneys three water parks, the Downtown Disney/Pleasure Island complex and Disneys Wide World of Sports receive the full PassPorter treatment, too.
Meal times are fun times at Walt Disney World, and with over 250 dining options, the PassPorter team had its work cut out for them. Every full-service restaurant on Disney property is rated and briefly reviewed. Weve tried to give you a good taste of every restaurant and still keep it short, which is important in a book people carry with them all day says Marx, who loves to eat and cook. We also give a complete rundown on Disneys Character Meals, where Mickey, Peter Pan, or Mary Poppins pay a visit to every table. Believe me, grown-ups love this just as much as the kids!
Authors Watson and Marx are dyed-in-the-wool Disney fanatics. Their love for and knowledge of The World (as insiders call Walt Disney World) translates into a compact-but-comprehensive guide that starts with the basics and ends with those special hints that put the m in Disney magic. Theyve even made room for a mini autograph book, just in case you run into Minnie during your Disney travels.
So when the magic of Walt Disney World beckons, pick up a copy of PassPorter Walt Disney World® before you go. Not only will you discover Walt Disney World through the eyes of two seasoned fans, but youll also be more organized and better budgeted than you ever thought possible.
