Covers all the resorts, and the cruise line. Most of the factual info is the same as in the Passporter or Unofficial guides, but the reviews are fun. (On Disney's Family Magic Tour, for example: "It's up to you and the tykes to save the Kingdom from Captain Hook and the pirates. Frankly, we think that saving the park from people in polyester is more urgent.") ( )

Think of them as the tour-guide version of Patsy and Edina from Absolutely Fabulous-if those two ever were sober enough to write a book. Knowing that the agenda of the average gay or lesbian traveler is a bit different from that of Mom and Pop Smith from Des Moines, Jeffrey Epstein and Eddie Shapiro proffer a guide book to the Disney resorts that specifically caters to gay and lesbian readers. While sniping at each other only occasionally, they offer candid, informative and always-humorous opinions on everything from hotels and attractions to restaurants and shows. The writers also provide information about nearby theme parks and local gay life surrounding the Disney landscape. Additionally, the book boasts: "fairy facts," unique tidbits of trivia about every attraction in the parks; vital tips on how to make the most of your stay, such as which restaurants offer the best bang for your buck and how to avoid all the long lines; help on finding the parks' "gay goodies" like Ellen's Energy Adventure (starring none other than Ellen DeGeneres); and where to grab a kiss without feeling stared at. With additional commentary provided by gays and lesbians surveyed from across the country, there's something for everyone: singles, couples, parents with kids, singles looking to be coupled and couples looking to be single. Even people long-familiar with Disneyland and Walt Disney World will want to pick up this funny, irreverent and insightful look at how they, too, can experience family at America's family Mecca.

Jeffrey Epstein is a native of Newton, Massachusetts, who now lives in Los Angeles, California. The former West Coast Editor of Soap Opera Digest, he is now the Senior Editor of Out Magazine, and is one of the organizers of Gay Day at Disneyland.

Eddie Shapiro is the Event Manager for AIDS Walk New York. A former resident of Long Island, he now makes his home in New York City.
