Frommer's Disney World, Universal and Orlando

Preparing for an Orlando vacation can be a full-time job, and it costs a small fortune. Most other books on the market make the problem worse, burying vacationers in endless pages of pointless details unquestioningly cheering for the high-priced theme parks and resorts. But this lightweight, fact-packed guide cuts through the noise and compresses the information you truly need to know. No other book does what we do: Honest talk, money-saving tips, and affectionate insider secrets to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, and the inimitable culture and history of Orlando and Central Florida.

This groundbreaking Orlando guide was named Guide Book of the Year by the Society of American Travel Writers. Author Jason Cochran started going to Orlando as a child in the early 1970s and he keeps you on top of the newest developments in this ever-shifting tourist scene. He wants to help you master the parks with a minimum of anxiety and expense.
