Two New Reviews for the DFB Guide!

We’re pleased to share two new reviews of our 2012 DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book this week!

First up, RunningAtDisney.com says,

My favorite thing about the guide are all of the great tips. AJ and the DFB team have done a lot of research (I’m totally jealous!) to help us find the best meals and the best values on WDW property. …And then there is the Disney Dining At-A-Glance section… Where to find the best popcorn, a place to propose, exotic eats, the least expensive buffet, and the list goes on and on.

Read the full review here!

Next up, a fun review from LEG+JCB who are on their way to Disney World soon. Here are a few nice words they said about the Guide…

Not only is it updated annually, but as an e-book, it’s loaded with links to more extensive reviews and photo essays on their site, and [it’s] great to take with you to the parks on a smartphone (or, if you’re adventurous, a tablet).

The book also comes with budgeting spreadsheets and sample dining itineraries which I found to be extremely helpful… . Lance will also be happy with the book’s comprehensive list of bars and lounges, which I’m sure he’ll need to utilize after one trip on It’s a Small World.

Read the rest of the review (pretty funny :-D) here.
