Added to list of recommended sites in the award-winning The Complete Walt Disney World 2012

yourfirstvisit.net has insightful, no-nonsense advice for both novice and repeat visitors to Walt Disney World.

The Walt Disney World Instruction Manual at http://yourfirstvisit.net has been added to the list of 20 or so recommended sites in the recently published book, The Complete Walt Disney World 2012.

Julie Neal, author of this award winning book, says that http://yourfirstvisit.net contains “insightful, no-nonsense advice for both novice and repeat visitors” to Walt Disney World.

The Disney World planning website yourfirstvisit.net earlier this year also received high praise from Lee Cockerell, Disney’s former Executive Vice President in charge of operations at Disney World’s theme parks and resort hotels.

He said that http://yourfirstvisit.net is “highly recommended, and astonishingly helpful in ensuring both first time and repeat visitors have a magical visit to Walt Disney World.”

The site http://yourfirstvisit.net is the only website designed solely for first time visitors to Walt Disney World. It gives them exact instructions, but if they can’t follow these instructions, it gives next best options.

For these first time visitors, it has precise advice for making a first family visit to such a complicated place as good as it can be. In addition to when to go, and how long in advance plans need to be made, instructions include how long to stay, how old and tall children should be, where to stay, what to budget, how to eat, where to eat, itineraries for every day of a stay, and a to-do list.

Families that can follow its advice to the letter will be done with their planning after reading just 400 words on the home page.

Moreover, for families that can't follow its exact advice, the site includes their next best options. For example, if a family simply can't follow its advice on when to go, the site ranks every week of 2012 (and 2013!) in order, based on whether or not rides are open, weather, typical crowd levels, and prices. Families can simply go down the list of ranked weeks until they find the one that works for them.

The site http://yourfirstvisit.net, called “the most valuable Disney World site on the web” by one of its readers, had its millionth visitor in late 2011, and more than 90,000 people have visited it five times or more.

David Hobart, the site’s author, says that he is honored to be included in The Complete Walt Disney World 2012. “That’s a great guidebook, and the other sites on Julie Neal’s list are amazingly good. It’s humbling to be included on that list,” he said.
