I pre-ordered mine on the Waterstones website last week and it said available in 8 days so I'm hoping the end of this week!
I also got free delivery which I was happy with. I can't wait for mine to come, then I can really kickstart my planning :cool1:

I've pre-ordered mine from Amazon and it's got an estimated delivery date of November 2nd for me. That is if the postie's decide they're not going to do any more striking! :sad2:

I ordered mine from Amazon way back in July with a delivery date of 28th October. I had an email from them this morning to say that they were having difficulties obtaining stock from the publisher and would contact me when they got some in??

Hope this is help to some of you who are waiting by the letterbox like me - looks like you can have a few days off at least :rotfl:

My copy of the Brit's Guide 2010 arrived in the post this morning!
I was very surprised as I also got the email from Amazon informing me that it had been delayed.

Very excited as I have not owned a copy of the guide before and looking forward to reading it! :coffee:

I pre-ordered from Amazon a couple of months ago
It was delivered on Weds by DHL as I think they were worried about the Postal Strikes
Looking forward to starting it this weekend:)

I bought the 2004 one and then again in 2006 and loved it. Enjoy the 2010 you lucky people who have your copies!

I've had a quick skim read through and read the first few chapter properley and so far so good :cool1:

They recommended a site www.the bibb.co.uk and it has a great planner on there, you can input your details and print it out. I have found this really handy in organising my planning and would definitely recommend it :thumbsup2

I'm looking for a guide book to read for our trip in Feb 2010, is the book your discussing the Brits Guide to Orlando or does it just cover just WDW.

There are so many guides out there i don't know what to buy.

Any advice would be appreciated.

It's the Brits Guide to Orlando ;) It covers WDW, SeaWorld, Universal, Busch etc. and other places such as free places to go, hotels etc.

It's a very good read. I got the 2008 book when we were heading there back then and it was amazing for little hints and tips. It also reviews rides, hotels, restaurants etc to give you ideas on what's on offer, both inside and outside of WDW. There's lots of useful numbers, websites and information in there too.

So good, I got the 2010 one for our trip next May! :thumbsup2

At the moment mitch, I've only shuffled through the 2010 version, so I'm not sure how much has changed since the '08 edition.

I got it really for the tips and hints, usually which change depending on what's happening over there at the time.

It's the best one by far for us Brits though :thumbsup2

It goes without saying that a fair chunk of the book remains unchanged year on year. BUT, things are constantly changing, and you can be sure that anything new (at the time they go to press in summer each year) will have been thoroughly researched. The latest edition is about twice the size of the first I bought around 10 years ago!

I had this guide book for our 2006 holiday and I have just bought the 2010 edition for our October trip next year. I definitely think that it was worth buying the new edition, lots of things have changed in Florida since our last visit and it was great knowing about them in advance. I wanted to be prepared because we will only have 12 days in WDW and want to make the most of it :goodvibes

My boyfriend and I are going in June 2010. We have the Unofficial Guide for 2009, but am thinking of buying it for 2010 for my boyfriends Christmas present (which I will end up using :laughing:) Do you guys recommend Brits guide over Unofficial?

Thanks for the help!

Me too. It's far more comprehensive. In my opinion the Brit's Guide is good for first timers wanting an overview, but I much prefer the Unofficial :thumbsup2

Personally I like both, the Brits guide because I like the pictures! :rotfl: and the comprehensiveness of the Unnofficial guide. Needless to say I have both! ;)

Hi folks - good to hear the new edition is finally getting out there. We had our doubts, with the postal strike and all! As strange as it may seem, we have only just got our authors' copy out here in the US and it had been absolutely soaked through at some point in the postal system, so the first 100 pages are completely unreadable :mad: We should get some more soon, though (we hope!).

Just to underline what Deb said earlier, parts of the book will be pretty much the same as 2009's in areas like hotels and shopping as not much has changed in the past 12 months or so. But ALL the copy has been reviewed and checked (and refreshed in places), while there are new sections on all the latest attractions (Rip Ride Rockit, Manta, American Idol Live, etc) and a whole new preview section on the Harry Potter development at IoA.

As regards the Brit Guide and the excellent Unofficial Guide, we always say that the UG goes into greater detail as their focus is primarily WDW, while we try to provide a fuller overview of the whole of the Orlando area, to the extent of providing a chapter on two-centre holidays to the likes of the Gulf Coast, Miami and Florida Keys. If you can get both, you should have the perfect companions to the complete Orlando experience :thumbsup2

I love both the Brits Guide and the Unofficial Guide. They are complimentary, and when you think how much each of us spend on an Orlando trip they are a good investment.

Excellent, I'll get my boyfriend the Brit's guide, and he'll get me the unofficial! Win win! :thumbsup2:rotfl:
