A guidebook with a decidedly different approach, Mousejunkies is a collection of humorous travelogues and insider how-to secrets compiled after scores of trips to Walt Disney World. The book draws on the insights of a panel of Disney fanatics -- The Mousejunkies. This third edition brings everything up to date with countless new tips, tricks, and tales.

Told through personal accounts, all of the most important topics are covered: when to go, where to stay, what to do, and where to eat. Readers also learn how to avoid melting down under the Florida sun, how to extract your family from Fantasmic with your sanity intact, where to catch a mid-afternoon catnap, and even how wrong things go when "Epcrotch" strikes.

Mousejunkies is more than one travel writer's experiences: The Mousejunkies have found themselves inexplicably drawn to Walt Disney World, again and again. Each has taken his or her own path, finding his or her way separately.

The stories -- wry, humorous, and told with an affection gained through years of Disney addiction -- paint vivid portraits of a creatively engineered world, where unexpected surprises create lasting memories.

The tips are told with a sly wink and the desire to share the secrets.
