Official or Unofficial Guide?
Of the two major books on Disneyland--Birnbaum's Official Guideand The Unofficial Guide (Bob Shelinger) which is the best?
I prefer Unofficial, although I think they both have alot of flaws. Official (Birnbaum's) is too thin and optomistic, while Unofficial never changes and their ride descriptions are the same in both Disneyland and WDW versions--as in, the Magic Kingdom WDW and Disneyland Dumbo have exactly the same description. They're the same thing, but you know what I mean.
So which is better and any comments anyone? No this is not a bona fide poll.
Read the Hidden Gems Thread
There is a thread entitled hidden gems. I do not know how to link to it. If you search for it, it is entitled Hidden Gems of Disneyland . It is great. It tells you a very lot of cool inside secrets to Disneyland, just what you are looking for.
