We are planning a Disney World trip in 2016. Are you going to come out with a 2016 edition?

Hi Hedy, yes we are!

Dear Dave,
I am feeling so totally overwhelmed. We don’t have a lot of money and my daughter and I want to take my 9 year old granddaughter to Disney World. We already bought our airline tickets and I rented a car. I am paying for hotel and Disney World tickets and need to spend the least amount of money because I am retired. We had intended to stay with friends who live in Orlando and commute but I just found out they live 45 minutes from the park. I’m on a fixed income and my daughter is a single parent with very little income. I did just buy your book and will receive it by Monday… We would like a 4 day pass the week of July 18. To save money, we will stay with our friends the day we arrive and the night before we depart. So I’m looking for a hotel for 3 nights: July 19 with check out on July 22. I know we will need to stay at a modest hotel off site because we can’t afford to stay at a Disney property. This is a birthday present to my 9 year old granddaughter who claims she is the only kid in her school who hasn’t been to Disney World. Thank you so much in advance for your advice which will be most appreciated!

Becky, I’m so sorry but I don’t track the off-site hotels, so can’t give you any recommendations.

Hi Dave my husband and I are coming to Orlando August 21 to the 31. We are bringing our two foster children with us. Where would we get the best prices for entrance to Disney world? Our children are 15 and 17 this will be our first visit there we are from bc Canada. How many days do you think we should visit the park for we are staying at a resort for 5 nights that about a 15 minute drive away from Disneyland. Then we’re going to a resort at Daytona beach for three nights.

6 Dave { 03.21.16 at 10:01 am }

Hi Margie, you’ll find the best ticket prices here. My thoughts on how long to stay are here.

Will there be a new version for 2017? If so when will it be available. I am in Canada, is there a way to get the hard copy with the free Kindle version. I have access to Kindle. Thanks. Have a great day.

8 Dave { 07.26.16 at 8:37 am }

Dayna there will be a new edition. I can’t give you an exact date.
