A bit of good news as the website’s guidebook, in coordination with Dave from yourfirstvisit.net, is now available for purchase through Amazon at this link. The Kindle version should be available shortly. We’ll take a moment to see what it looks like. Spoiler: You should probably buy two.
First, I have received a few questions already and will address those now.
Q: Josh, you can barely write a complete sentence and usually don’t punctuate properly why would we buy a book you wrote.
A. While you’re not wrong, you’ll notice that there is another author attached – Dave from yourfirstvisit.net. And also, a professional publisher in Bob at Theme Park Press. The book is written from scratch and combines our experience-based insight and practical advice into an organized, easy-to-read guidebook that walks you through the entire planning process. And it is a book after all, if we missed a comma somewhere you can just mark it yourself on your Kindle in permanent marker.
Q: Madden is already basically coming out with its 2016 edition. Aren’t we a little behind the times, son?
A. Yes and no. While the book was published the week of June 7th, it’s already been updated with the FastPass+ tier changes announced June 10th. You can also visit easywdw.com/easy-guide for any pertinent updates that alter the facts, in addition to being able to print the newest versions of the Cheat Sheets, maps, and any other graphs or illustrations you see in the book. Any major updates will get their own blog posts and also serve as a reminder that you NEED MORE COPIES. The Kindle version will see timely updates as things change.
Q: Josh, I have already been to Disney World and the biggest word on the cover of this book is “first,” should I be turned off by this particularly unclever marketing scheme that seems to reduce the pool of potential buyers to a microcosm of the population?
A. The easy Guide is a nice primer for return visitors to get reaquainted with Disney World and it serves as an all-encompassing guide for first or second time visitors who may not be familiar with major attractions like Soarin’ and Splash Mountain, let alone what a FastPass+ does or why a Lapu Lapu comes in a pineapple. Those who haven’t been since the FastPass+ rollout will find particularly helpful information on new touring strategies and a walkthrough of everything MyMagic+ offers, in addition to reviews of restaurants you may have never heard of or resorts you may have never visited. Also, the book looks very good on tables, on bookshelves, and in gift baskets.
Q: Is this really a real book or is it just a quick money making scheme like the rest of this website?
Let’s get to it.
