Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2013

Part 3 - Accommodations

Page 101- The Grand Floridian does not have a kids' club. Other than the Polynesian, the Disney onsite resorts with clubs Wilderness Lodge, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Beach Club, and Walt Disney World Dolphin.

Page 156 - Our "Best Rooms" recommendations for the Yacht Club only lists 5th floor rooms, which is all club level. For guests who don't wish to book club level, the 4th floor rooms under the rooms listed have the same view. All Yacht Club rooms have full balconies.

Page 182 - The last 2 sentences of the 2nd paragraph were included in error and should be removed.

Part 4 - Serenity Now!

Page 280-284 - The spas at the Grand Floridian and Saratoga Springs are going through renovations and will open under Disney management as Senses (the same spas found on the Disney Cruise Line Dream and Fantasy). The Grand Floridian will reopen December 2012. After that, Saratoga Springs spa will go down from January 2013 until Summer 2013. The spa at the Waldorf Astoria is no longer a Guerlain spa.

Part 5 - Disney Cruise Line

Page 293 - High tea is no longer offered at Palo.

Page 294 - Disney's Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular only plays on the Fantasy, not the Fantasy and the Dream

Page 295 - Villains Tonight! plays on Dream and the Magic, and is only slightly preferable to a fork in the eye.

Page 295 - Meridian is on both the Dream and the Fantasy, on Deck 12 between Palo and Remy.

Page 297 - Western Caribbean cruises that depart from Galveston do not include a stop at Castaway Cay.

Page 299 - Cruising Tips. Some extra tips for our readers:

  • When booking a cruise for 3 or 4 passengers, don't forget to check the rates for connecting cabins - you may be pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive it can be to double your space.
  • Land and Sea packages booked through Disney never save you money versus booking each component separately, and can be more expensive. The only advantage to booking a Land and Sea package is that you can check into your cruise at your Disney hotel before you leave for the port if the land portion of the cruise precedes the cruise portion. Your Key to the World card will also serve as your room key onboard.
  • If you're able to score a last minute reservation at Remy or Palo, but haven't packed a suit jacket, gentlemen may borrow one from the restaurants for their dinner.
  • if you're a fan of Castaway Cay, look for 5-night Bahamas itineraries that include two stops at the island (and one stop in Nassau).

Part 9 - Bare Necessities

Page 408 - We state the Disney resort guests can have purchases made in the theme parks delivered back to their hotel rooms. Packages are delivered back to their resort's gift shop for pick up the next day, not to the room.

Pages 504-505 - The locations for Enchanted Tales with Belle (12) and the stands where guests pick-up Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom cards (two locations, both labeled 33) are not accurate. See this corrected map.
