Even the most hardcore power mom will like this award-willing travel guide, newly released this January.  It’s written by a former Walt Disney World concierge supervisor who’s also the mom of a teenage girl.  Packed with candid reviews and thorough descriptions of ever ride, show, restaurant, and resort, The Complete Walt Disney World 2012 features the most in-depth information ever published about the world’s No. 1 vacation destination.  Paging through the book is just plain fun, as 535 color photos reveal details you just can’t find anywhere else.  The guide is loaded with straightforward insight and helpful information.

Families create park days to treasure.  Comprehensive attraction pages make deciding what to do at Walt Disney World easier than ever.  Going beyond mere ranks and ratings, reviews also give families insight into a ride or show’s appeal, such as its architecture, history, music, storytelling or attention to detail.  Helpful specs include hourly wait times, fear factors, disability access, health warnings, and weather issues.  Once they are at an attraction useful tips and lists of “secret” fun finds help families enjoy the experience to the fullest.

Photos take you there.  Over 500 colorful images give readers a clear sense of every ride, show, parade, and exhibit, and reveal the quality of hotel grounds, lobbies, rooms, and swimming pools.  Parents will enjoy looking at The Complete Walt Disney World 2012 with their children, as the abundance of photos makes it easy for little ones to decide, “Let’s do that!”

Helpful tips make readers Disney experts.  Spread through the book, hundreds of specific tips reveal such things as how to save time with Disney’s Fastpass system, how to save money with the Disney Dining Plan , even the best spots to watch parades, shows, and fireworks.

Meal planning with confidence.  Thoughtful restaurant reviews cover everything from burger joints to gourmet bistros to unique character meals.  Quick read summaries let vacationers scan restaurants by ratings, cuisine, price or hours of operations.  A policies section uncovers hard to find facts on children’s meals, special diets, and Disney’s new rules about canceling reservations.

Detailed hotel reviews save time.  Seriously thorough hotel descriptions let readers compare every aspect of every major place to stay, including swimming pool features and other family focused amenities.  Reviews cover the highs and lows of every property, room decor, and both rack and discount rates.  Disney guests can forget the hassle of spending hours online to research hotels; everything they need is right at their fingertips.
