    Read It on Plane to Florida!

    I got Volume 1 for Christmas and started reading it right away, but I didn't have a lot of time because of midterm exams and stuff... But I did get to read it on the plane ride to Florida! Unfortunately, not near Orlando, Florida Just a couple hours away from Walt Disney World... so close, yet so far...

    I got Volumes 1 and 2 for Christmas and my plan is to take them with us on our next trip and read them in between things like, after we check into the hotel and we have some time to kill or when my son is napping or while waiting for the parade to start at the parks etc. If I read them now all I'll do is get depressed that my trip is still over 3 months away. After spending years living so close that I could go every weekend, this whole "wait a year" stuff is getting to me. The books may make it worse. LOL!!

    I'm almost the opposite- I don't get to Disney nearly as often as I'd like to, so the books are the closest I can get!

    I took both of them with me to WDW this past July! I had already read both of them several times & new almost every single answer, but I used them for reference & my DW & DK's loved how I new so much neat stuff about WDW! It was fun to have all that info along!!!

    That sounds like so much fun! It's hard being down here in Florida thinking about what other Florida vacations you could be on right now, lol...

    I've been going to Disney parks over the last 4 decades and read to fill the gaps between trips and to rev up the hype before going. I was stunned by how many questions I was wrong about! Granted many were not related to what we normally do or tour but still.

    I sent the Triva II book with my son (bathroom reader, 6 roommates) when he was a CP CM this fall. They all became little know it all CM's quickly.

    I just got both books on Friday for my birthday and intend to read them on the way to WDW on Wednesday, or hopefully, sleep all the way there so I'm well rested and ready to go!
