PassPorter Walt Disney World 2016 Spiral Bound

The PassPorter Walt Disney World 2016: The Unique Travel Guide, Planner, Organizer, Journal, and Keepsake! book is not like other books. It combines a planner where you can plan out your itinerary, an organiser to keep everything together when you visit Walt Disney World, a journal to record your activities and impressions and a keepsake to show your family on your return.

It comes in two main versions, the Deluxe loose leaf edition and this version, the cheaper but slightly less versatile, Standard spiral bound edition. Now in its 17th edition, both the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition were published in early 2016.

You can also buy the PassPorter Walt Disney World as a Deluxe Refill Kit (pre-drilled looseleaf text) to insert into your existing Deluxe ring binder. This means if you are a keen Disney fan who visits Walt Disney World on a regular basis, then you can just buy new inserts each year rather than buying the book and the binder.

They are written by husband and wife team Jennifer Marx and Dave Marx and their son Alexander Marx.

As it says on the back cover “You have only one vacation - make it a trip of a lifetime with PassPorter WDW! Planning is the key to a relaxing, magical, affordable vacation at WDW and this unique guide is your passport to it all !”

The Standard edition costs around half the price of the Deluxe edition and folds flat with an elastic band to keep the whole thing securely closed. It is not quite as flexible but like the deluxe edition, it has a number of organiser PassPockets into which you can insert various things such as tickets, maps, receipts, to do lists etc. It also has a place to record character autographs to save buying a separate autograph book.

The 2016 edition has been updated with over 500 larger colour photographs, and describes the new technology including FastPass+, MagicBands and My Disney Experience but only covers FastPass+ at the Magic Kingdom.

It runs to over 360 pages, printed in full colour on glossy paper with detailed appendices and an index. The opening chapters cover planning the trip including budgeting tips, getting there and back, best times to travel and what to pack.
