The Complete Idiot's Guide to Walt Disney World {Book Review}

Have you ever been to Walt Disney World? We took little Brandon to Disneyland in California, but we have yet to go to Walt Disney World together on our next vacation. Planning can be time consuming when you don't know what to expect.

I was recently given the opportunity to review the book called "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Walt Disney World." Doug Ingersoll provided a great resource books to make your vacation planning so much easier and it will save you time (and even save you money).

Walt Disney World has a unique appeal for people of all ages: children are giddy for Goofy, newlyweds sense romance in the Magic Kingdom, and business conventioneers find a way to unwind in the resorts and nightlife. But these groups have one thing in common: without a helpful guide they will find themselves waiting in long lines, spending money needlessly and missing the real – and sometimes hidden – fun.

Doug Ingersoll’s latest guide has answers for Disney guests that want to make the most of their trip. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Walt Disney World, 2013 Edition , puts the magic back into this beloved destination by taking the guesswork out of planning the perfect Disney vacation. It goes beyond giving general descriptions of rides, hotels, and restaurants to give readers specific advice based on the type of experience they envision.

Packed with up-to-date information on the parks, attractions, restaurants, hotels, and a lot more, this helpful guide gives you everything you need to plan a hassle-free visit. Guide includes:

  • Tips for scheduling your trip, establishing a budget, booking your accommodations, and selecting your park tickets.
  • Guidance on getting the most out of your Disney dining dollars, including character meals.
  • Extensive itineraries, planning cards, and maps
  • Tools for pre-trip planning, including scheduling the trip, booking accommodations, and selecting park tickets
  • Detailed reviews of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom, including appropriate attractions by age group


Doug Ingersoll is the author of five editions of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Walt Disney World, as well as the creator of the iPhone application The Walt Disney World Complete Travel Guide. A lifelong Disney fan, Ingersoll has been vacationing at Walt Disney World for more than 40 years. He has helped friends, family, and others negotiate the maze of planning to enjoy a vacation to the Magic Kingdom with his unique card system. Ingersoll has refined his attraction, hotel, and restaurant reviews on over 100 trips to Walt Disney World and the Orlando area, including family vacations, bachelor weekends, and romantic couple getaways. Ingersoll was named to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel in 2009, and 2010. The panel of Moms and Dads, selected by Disney, offers advice to vacationers at the Walt Disney World website, He has a bachelor’s degree in communication arts and sciences from DePauw University and a master’s degree in marketing from Indiana University.
