    Guidebook Suggestions

    So I just got accepted today for the Summer Alumni College Program and I'm pretty excited. One thing that I want to do this summer is explore Orlando. I'm trying to find a guidebook on Orlando that has only a little information about Disney World in it. I spent last summer down there doing the college program, so I feel pretty good about my Disney World knowledge. I also have the Birnbaum guide that I got before last summer. I'd also like to find one with as little info as possible on hotels, since I'll have an apartment.

    Thanks!

    Well, I don't know if you can find a guidebook just about hotels...but the "Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World" is a pretty good one. WARNING: It's brutually honest and even a little bit down on Disney, but it does give you the truth about hotels, etc. The Birnbaum guide is useful because it's easy to look things up and the pics are nice, but you don't really get reviews because it is directly endorsed by Disney.

    As far as a guide book about Orlando (and Forida) goes-my favorites are ones that talk about all of the weird and odd places there are to visit.
    My favorite is Oddball Florida. It includes as description of the place and directions.

    I would look at the books your library has
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
