jo1006's review of Simon Veness, A Brit's Guide to Orlando and Walt Disney World


“Any Brit travelling to Florida for the first time will...”

Good Points
Easy to read. Excellent value for money.
A new edition each year means that it is never out of date. Ensure that you buy this years edition though, because if you inadvertently get last years, it will definitely be out of date, as so much changes in the parks and attractions. (2007 is out in October 2006).
Broken down into manageable sections.
Fantastic guide to a full itinerary in the back.
Hints and tips on taking small children to Orlando, and how to entertain them once there.

Bad Points
None as far as we can see. We're regular visitors to Florida and know the state reasonably well now, but we still pack the latest edition of Brits Guide whenever we go.

General Comments
Any Brit travelling to Florida for the first time will inevitably find it daunting. We are seasoned travellers, but our first Florida experience was MAD, and it would have been almost impossible without this book! We call 'A Brit's Guide to Orlando and Walt Disney World' our bible, and since our first visit to the sunshine state in 2002, we have had many more, and each time we have taken the Simon Veness book with us. There is a new one published every year with all the 'up to the minute' hints and tips, where to eat, which days are the lightest in the parks, what to beware of... everything to ensure you have as enjoyable a trip as possible. Simon and his wife live minutes from Disney, so have their fingers on the pulse when it comes to the ever changing theme parks. Not only do they cover the popular Disney World resorts and parks, but they cover Universal parks, Busch Gardens, Seaworld (our fave) and other not so well known attractions. Simon Veness's book is probably the best around for the British traveller, as it is directed to us sandal and sock wearing brigade!!

Don't try to visit Orlando without first reading this great guide cover to cover, and then remember to pack it in your suitcase.
