Links to Useful Disney Sites

Below are some of our personal favorite Disney websites. These are the Disney sites we find ourselves turning to when we are planning a trip or curious about something Disney-related, if we don’t have the information here on our own site!

Small World Vacations has great information and online tours for Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Disney Cruise Line. This site is run by a travel agency that specializes in Disney vacations. We highly recommend and use Small World Vacations ourselves. Be sure to check out their blog for the latest Disney news and information, too!

Undercover Tourist YouTube Channel – Hundreds of videos in HD (1080p) for most shows & rides at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando. It’s a great way to preview an attraction to see if it might be scary for your kids (or you). It’s also helpful if you’re not sure if a ride is a “must-do” for you. This channel is operated by Undercover Tourist, a company we’ve been recommending for years as a great place to buy discounted tickets for Disney World, Universal and other Central Florida attractions.

The DIS discussion boards offer one of the best and busiest places to discuss anything Disney-related, especially Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line. You’ll find a lot of Disney lovers here who have been to visit the Mouse many times and who can answer almost any question you can think up.

AllEarsNet (Deb’s Unofficial Walt Disney World Information Guide) offers incredibly (almost overwhelmingly) comprehensive information to help you plan your Walt Disney World trip. If you want all the tiny details about almost anything to do with Disney World, this is the site for you.

MousePlanet offers lots of Disney gossip and insider information, particularly about Disneyland (California). There are new “top stories” almost daily. MousePad, the site’s discussion board, is the busiest place to go if you want to talk about Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure.

PassPorter Walt Disney World Boards – These discussion boards are sponsored by a very good Walt Disney World guidebook called PassPorter Walt Disney World. They are open to anyone, and everyone on these boards seems very willing to offer help.

TouringPlans.com – The website of The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World and The Unofficial Guide to Disneyland, providing updates to the printed guidebooks. This site is the home of the “crowd calendar,” which predicts crowds at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. It also offers custom theme park touring plans to minimize the time you spend waiting in line, for a very minimal fee. (Click here for an exclusive discount.)
