No other city on the planet caters to kids like Orlando does; it’s the number one family vacation destination in the country. This brand new title helps you navigate through the maze of theme parks, family activities and other attractions in the Land that Mickey Built, so you can spend more time having fun and less time standing in line.

Whether you're toting along toddlers or restless teenagers, you’ll find candid ratings and opinions—including several from a child’s point of view—as well as detailed itineraries for all age groups, and suggestions to make your Walt Disney Vacation a success. Walt Disney World & Orlando with Kids is full of incredibly detailed tips—right down to which hotels offer cribs and rollaway beds and which restaurants offer high chairs, kids' menus, and the opportunity to dine with Disney and other cartoon characters.

You'll also get complete and up-to-date details on all the Universal Parks and Sea World, in addition to our comprehensive coverage of all the Disney attractions. The authors also provide a wealth of information about where to find hands-on, interactive museums and attractions (with suggested age ranges for each activity); child-appropriate entertainment; kid-oriented shopping; places to play outside the theme parks—all perfect for families with kids of any age (and any budget).

About the author (2004)

Jim and Cynthia Tunstall have racked up plenty of time waiting in Walt Disney World lines. They were there when the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, and in the more than 3 decades since that watershed moment they’ve sampled virtually everything that’s part of an Orlando vacation with their kids and grandkids. Their many insider experiences allow them to separate the good from the bad and the ugly, and they give you the best ways to cut through the lines, the crowds, and the theme park PR in order to find the things that are right for you.
Based 90 minutes from WDW, they’ve written six other Orlando and Florida books, including Walt Disney World & Orlando For Dummies and Florida For Dummies. They have also contributed to Frommer’s Florida and Frommer’s Florida from $70 a Day.
