I just picked up the 2003 Unofficial Guide. They speak extensively about the cancellation of EE and how it was the one true benefit of staying onsite. They also howl with laughter about Disney's explaination (Guests wanted the Caravan instead???!!!) and actually print the official Disney response that so many of us got in the mail or on Email. Over and over again they mention the budget cuts and the fact that they started long before 9/11. It's almost like Bob S. (the author) regularly visits our boards. In fact, maybe AV is secretly writing the travel guide. LOL! Anyway, I have always found them to be a most reliable and interesting read. I pick up the book every other year or so because so many of their comments and opinions echo mine. They manage to walk the critical line without bashing everyone and everything like Al does on Mouseplanet. (Though I enjoy reading his stuff regularly too) It's the first big publication that I have seen tackle the issue of budget cuts and the elimination of EE. It's really worth a look. Considering the copies in circulation, it's possible that it may influence even more folks to modify their trip plans. Disney, are you listening?
