James and Bethany - Guide2WDW - Disney World Guide

Welcome to Guide2WDW!

Hi, I’m James. Guide2WDW was started in 1999 by my family as a way of sharing our WDW knowledge gained over countless visits. Yes, we are those Disney nerds who visit every year and seem to know how to avoid all the lines, where to find the best food, and hidden secrets that can make for the best trip ever. Going to Disney World created some of my most cherished memories. Now as a new father, I’m discovering the joys of sharing those experiences with a new generation of Mickey Mouse fans.

Our mission with Guide2WDW is to take the advice that we would typically give to our friends and family and share it so more people can find out how to make the most of their time at Disney World.
