    I have not seen or heard of this "E-Book".

    I have purchased and enjoyed Birnbaums "Official Guide to Walt Disney World" and enjoyed it. I also recieved the :Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World" as a gift. Although I don't agree with all I read there, this book was the one that lead me to Mousesavers and prompted me to begin booking and planning my own trips.

    Personally I subscribe to the Mousesavers Newsletter and enjoy thier site emmensly.

    Can't say I've heard of the e-book either, but Chris & Kristal Carlson's Disney on a Dime has a lot of great tips. I also second MickeyBabe's recommendation of Mousesavers.com - they have the most up-to-date discount information anywhere.

    Hmmmm, It'll be interesting to see if they are the same tips that you get for free on Mousesavers.

    Have at it and give us the full report!!!

    I don't know about this, but I subscribed to Tour Guide Mike last year before our trip and thought it was a waste of money. I didn't find out anything I didn't already know, but then I know quite a bit.

    Well, we all have that issue here. So you are in the right place until you realize that this place takes so much of your time!!! We are a support group! But my addiction to this place I still need therapy for! lol

    My husband used to say he was a disney widower as I spent the weeks prior to leaving for our disney trips on the internet searching for interesting tips/places of interest. When he realised how much we saved on our second WDW trip(& we stayed on site) he decided it was a valuable time investment so save hundreds of dollars(probably over $1000 if you count accommodation/car hire too) and have a more interesting trip second time round. We searched out hidden things to do and visited a few more resorts and did things we would not have known about if not for message boards. Disney junkies rule!

    I've read and re-read this one and I love it! (In fact, it's next to my keyboard right now, lol!) Definitely worth the price!

    I'd have to say that between reading several Disney forum sites, Mousesavers, and learning from past trips we've been able to reduce our overall costs and usually were able to do most everything we wanted to do on our last 3 trips.
