The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World Planner – Book Review

It’s a memoir, a diary, a travel guide. The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World Planner is all this in one. Created by international travel writer and researcher, Susan Veness, this diary is a must-have asset for any avid traveler. We got one for ourselves and here’s expressing our experience of owning this wonderful journal.

This book is all about how to plan your trip to Disney. It has all the information about the rides, budget-friendly places to eat and stay, how to save your money and time when on the trip, how to avoid standing in long queues for a ride and more. Every ride and the surrounding restaurants are mentioned in detail, making this planner a convenient tool for both 1st and many time visitors.

The diary also reveals some of the never revealed secrets about Mickey’s home like where you’ll get tomato-shaped Mickey, a difficult to spot horrific surprise at the Tower of Terror.. we won’t spill them all here.

The author has done a lot of research or probably created the journal from her journey to the place. When you are visiting Disney, this planner feels like a comforting friend who knows everything about the place. The planner guides you through the magical place, ensuring you don’t ever get lost and miss the unmissable.
