Book Review: Planet Explorers - Walt Disney World 2011

Martin reviews the Planet Explorers - Walt Disney World Edition ebook that is now available. It is perfect for kids and teens and is available in pdf, kindle or ebook form for order. Thanks so much to Martin for this review.



The latest addition to the Planet Explorers series for kids covers the “Happiest Place on Earth” in a delightful and to-the-point style that will enhance any child’s trip and increase their natural curiosity about the parks and behind the scenes magic. A sad reality for many kids is that an awesome place such as Walt Disney World is, in their eyes, just a plot of land containing rides. As a result, many families end a day in the parks frustrated and extremely tired because their goal was simply to find the next ride and stand in line. They had no plan and no particular interests, and left with none of the magical memories. This book is the answer to that problem.

As adults, we realize that a small amount of education goes a very long way toward providing that extra amount of thrill and enjoyment we experience at Walt Disney World. Why did Walt do this? What were the Imagineers thinking here? Is there some interesting trivia behind this attraction? Where’s that hidden Mickey? These are just a few of the questions that can turn an ordinary “amusement park” trip into an extraordinary flight of fancy for the entire family at the Walt Disney World Resort. Laura Schaefer sets the stage for these questions and also provides many of the answers in a succinct, yet interesting manner – suitable for kids of all ages.

The book itself is easily navigated and Schaefer provides hyperlinks throughout for quick reference. Links to external sites are even provided for those desiring further research. Of course, the plentiful illustrations are bright and cheery, and include photos directly from the parks. Also provided are symbols to help describe each attraction. (S = scary, D = dark, etc…) All parks are covered, as well as the water parks and Downtown Disney. Indeed, just about everything a child would need to know about Walt Disney World is covered in a comprehensive, yet entertaining manner.

Perhaps most important is that this book does not insult the intelligence of children by avoiding facts that we adults assume kids would not be interested in. For example, Schaefer includes an overview of food services in each of the parks, along with descriptions of menus and a quick review. There are “Fun Facts” and “Did You Hear?” sections placed throughout the book providing an extra bit of trivia that makes the reading as much fun for adults as it is for kids. Also included are tips for a great trip, suggestions for what to wear, maps, quizzes, and even links covering the biographies of well-known Imagineers.

One does not have to look far to find a “Disney World fanatic” counting down the days until their next trip. These people exist everywhere and there are hundreds of websites filled with their comments, trip strategies, trip photos, and other memorabilia. But what do they have in common? Among other things, they have a desire to know more about Walt Disney and Walt Disney World. It is a well-known fact that the more one knows about this fabulous place, the more they enjoy it. Schaefer’s PLANET EXPLORERS: Walt Disney World 2011 provides that knowledge in a way that kids can truly appreciate and enjoy. Perhaps as a result another generation of fanatics is on its way?!
