Fodors Walt Disney World® with Kids, 2010 Edition

Entering its 20th edition, Fodors Walt Disney World with Kids delivers the definitive but always-easy-to-access advice of former Disney Magazine contributing editor Kim Wright Wiley, who has logged more than 50 visits to the parks both as a keen-eyed journalist and as a parent. Every family needs her tips and insider knowledge to make the most of a trip to Walt Disney World.

Wiley not only rates attractions and rides based on their age-related suitability and scare factor but also incorporates feedback from hundreds of families who, like her, have not-so-tirelessly field tested it all. Inside readers will find: 

-Everything a family needs to choose the right hotel, including driving times to the parks from each property

-Full ratings as well as quick-reference charts for the most kid-pleasing rides and restaurants 

-Must-see attraction checklists geared to young kids, preteens, and teens

-Time-saving tips, such as how to avoid crowds and lines at the park

-Insider secrets and the skinny on "Hidden Mickeys"

-Cautionary tales and success stories from parents about their park experiences

-Convenient maps of Walt Disney World and Universal Studios
