Updated Version of The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World Visit Now Available

By Dave Shute

Updated July 2015--The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World VisitOn July 18, an updated version of The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World Visit became available for sale.

So the best reviewed Disney World guide book, ever, is now also the most up to date!!


For those new to The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World Visit, here’s the recap:

Co-authored by me and Josh Humphrey of, the 2014 edition came out about a year ago, and the 2015 edition came out about 8 months ago.

We did an update to the 2015 edition in March, and just published another update on July 18.

Between them, the two editions have had almost 170 reviews on Amazon—of 95% gave five-star ratings. With an average star rating of 4.92, The easy Guide is the best-reviewed Disney World guidebook in history.

The easy Guide is short, has a big type size, and emphasizes very specific advice for those on their first—especially those on perhaps their only—visit to Walt Disney World.

But with its expert advice on how to use and optimize FastPass+, when to go, where to stay, what to do, and where to eat, it’s also tremendously helpful to returning visitors, too.

The easy Guide is available in both paperback and Kindle editions.

If you buy the paperback, we make the Kindle edition available for free through Amazon’s “Matchbook” program.


Our publisher Theme Park Press just updated The easy Guide with more than 20 pages of changes and updates from me and Josh.

Anyone who buys it for the first time will get the updated version—the most up-to-date Disney World guidebook available; those with an older Kindle version of the 2015 edition will have it updated if Amazon decides to issue an “Automatic Update.”

Here’s examples of some of what’s different:

  • Multiple changes to Chapter 5 (Where to Stay), especially the refurb and construction status of the Polynesian Village, Wilderness Lodge, and Caribbean Beach
  • Multiple updates to Chapter 6 (How to Spend Your Time), including recent changes at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot, and completely updated and revised Cheat Sheets for all four parks
  • Multiple changes to Chapter 7 (Where to Eat), including recent changes to the dining plan, new food offerings at the Animal Kingdom, new meals available at Be Our Guest and Chef Mickeys, and new restaurants at Downtown Disney

I’m sure most fans of this site are aware of how amazing this guidebook is. I’ve read most of them (Passporter, Unofficial, Birnbaum, Complete, Etc.), and the Easy Guide is far and away the best.
And it’s hardly just for first timers.
I’m a regular WDW visitor since 1991.
So glad you’re doing regular updates. Thank you!!
