Beyond the Attractions - A Guide to WDW

Beyond the Attactions:

A Guide to Walt Disney World 
with Preschoolers 2014

For the past several years, Lisa Battista has been helping families travel to Walt Disney World with preschoolers.  As a blogger with similar goals, I see the need and use for such help in book form and Lisa has brought us this again in 2014.  

Unlike other books (which I love, use, and recommend - but may overwhelm the average reader), this book has great succinct descriptions of Disney Resorts and Attractions with a focus on how children may relate to them.  You get all of the information you need but in 200 pages instead of 1000.  Many of the descriptions are also followed with tips, such as this one found with a review of Disney's Caribbean Beach resort:
"Your little pirates will enjoy the themed pirate rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. These specially decorated rooms contain pirate beds and other custom details to immerse your family in the pirate experience  You will pay about a $55 premium per night to stay in these rooms and they are a distance from the main resort building."'
I personally love the recreation aspect of the book which breaks down so many attractions and places that I haven't experienced for myself yet, such as mini-golf, bowling, carriage and wagon rides, and many others that children may love, yet the average guest may know nothing about!

This book is also great that it has preschooler-specific packing lists, children specific park maps, tips on child safety, and an easy index to find specific topics.

Now, you can win one, too!!

**I received a review copy of this book from the author, but this is an honest review and opinions are my own**


  1. I would be traveling with my 2 & 4 yr old boys!

  2. They're free until they're 3!! My oldest was 6 months at his first trip - and he was a DIFFICULT baby and an angel there - a happy place for all!

  3. I hope you have a great trip!!! They'll love it! IF you haven't booked yet and would like help, please let me know!!

  4. Great ages to go!!

  5. When we go, my daughter is going to be 2! Our first big trip as a family!!

  6. Great timing! Hopefully you've been following for a while and know I always say it's best to go when they are FREE! :)

  7. Going this summer with a 1.5 year old!
