I would definitely recommend the unofficial guidebook by Bob Sehlinger, its an extremely thorough read and leaves no stone unturned, it tells you everything you need to know regarding restaurant reservations, unseen attractions and even tips that will help you beat the queues for most of the rides

I like the Brit's guide books, you can usually pick them up cheaply off Ebay or Amazon

I'd also recommend the Brit's Guide and follow DLRP Magic and DLRP Today.

I got given this for my birthday a couple of years ago and was really disappointed. The photos in the book were lovely but I felt it was very out of date, for example it said there were lockers to hire at the turnstiles, well yes there are but they haven't been in use since ..... ..... certainly long before 2005 when we first visited. A shame because I'm a fan of the Unofficial Guide for WDW and I'm currently reading the one for DL.

A lot of the reviews on Amazon.com about the 'Unofficial Guide' for DLP are negative. People say it's out-dated and really skips needed info in a few areas.

We have the Brit Guide to DLP 2012-13 and it's fab! I love it. Written by DLP regulars who know the ins and outs of it all. I've ordered another copy so my 2 oldest children can have 1 each for the drive to DLP in July

I can recomend the Brit's Guide as well. It's the one I sugest to anyone going to DLP for their first time. The 20% off discount for Planet Hollywood is good value for money and it can be used again, and again which means you easly get back what you paid for the book if you use the discount if you ever eat there.

I looked through a copy of the Unofficial Guidebook by Bob Sehlinger recently and it looked very out of date.
