If you are planning to take your little ones to Walt Disney World, I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Lisa Battista's "Beyond the Attraction" Disney guidebook. This book will help you plan your trip to Disney, starting with a discussion on whether or not your child is ready for a Disney trip. She then shares steps to planning your magical vacation with your preschooler from the perspective of a mom who has been through it herself. This leads into preparing your child for this type of a vacation and other valuable tips for advanced planning.
Once through the planning and preparing for your trip, Lisa discusses the attractions, dining and recreational activities appropriate for preschoolers. This is a great resource because the attractions section details what you can expect, but also shares some attractions that may be unexpectedly scary for your child. Even better, Lisa includes the height restrictions for the attractions found throughout Walt Disney World. This is great information to know ahead of time to be sure you don't talk up a ride to your child and then find out when you arrive, they are not tall enough to experience it. The dining is very thorough with an overview of the dining plan, advanced dining reservations and family friendly restaurants throughout the parks and resorts.
The Child Care and Safety section includes invaluable information for any parent traveling to Walt Disney World, from the Baby Care Centers to your child's safety in the parks to child proofing your resort room.
Being that this book is geared toward traveling to Walt Disney World with preschoolers, it is an amazing resource for parents looking to plan their trip, whether they are Disney Rookies or Disney Veterans. The information Lisa provides will make sure you are prepared before arriving, as well as how to enjoy every minute of the magic while in Disney.
