    Can you tell me if all Disney tickets have changed to wearing a band or do they still have paper tickets. Thanks

    • Liliane July 31, 2017Reply

      Hi Karen: If you do not wish to wear a band Disney issues cards that look and operate similar to hotel key cards. If you still have an unexpired ticket they will honor it no matter what format. If it is paper, they will however convert it to a plastic card next time you visit. Hope this helps. Best, Liliane

    You have an error in your book about the date of Easter. It’s the 1st of April 2018 not the 11th

    • Liliane October 10, 2017Reply

      Thank you Elaina. We did correct the date in the second printing. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know.

    I note that you now produce a guide to Universal. Does this mean that your Walt Disney World guide no longer provides information for the Universal parks?

    • Liliane January 8, 2018Reply

      Dear Robert,
      Thank you for contacting us. The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World still has a small section (about 45 pages) covering Universal Orlando.
      Hope this helps.
