Overview
Walt Disney World is for little kids, princesses, and dweebs, right? WRONG There's more than enough at WDW to keep the two-fisted, thrill-seeking, hard-drinking, meat-eating he-man of the house happy as a caveman with a mammoth rib. Bart Scott comes to the aid of moms and girlfriends everywhere with the only guidebook specifically designed to convince the football-watching, beer-swilling, couch potato they love that a trip to WDW will not only reduce the whining in the household and give them continued access to those special favors, but will actually be FUN for them. Scott's the real deal--a real guy, with big appetites, firm convictions, and a healthy disdain for pretentiousness in all its forms. He's also big enough to admit that the toughest hombre's heart melts a little when his own little princess falls under the spell of Disney magic. Ears of Steel is an honest, straight-from-the-shoulder, and frequently hilarious look at everything in Walt Disney World that keeps real men coming back, with all the sissy stuff either glossed over or ignored entirely.

In this unconventional travel guide, Scott attempts to disprove the myth that Walt Disney World is only for children by "highlighting the most testosterone-filled, white-knuckling, chest-beating, manly attractions and activities." He breaks down accommodation options by budget and details the pros and cons of the major resorts. The subsequent chapters are organized by park, including Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom, where Scott directs readers on precisely what to see in what order and what to skip. Scott's descriptions take the reader right into the action, occasionally diminishing the element of surprise. His account of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror may induce vertigo. In Epcot's World Showcase, Scott reports where to stop at each of the major pavilions to get the best food and drinks including La Cava de Tequila's Blood Orange Margarita and Via Napoli's artisanal pizzas, complete with instructions for a drinking game. Further tips include the rides to avoid after eating, getting into the special reserved seating for Fantasmic! and most importantly, where to find alcohol in the Magic Kingdom. He even rates the restrooms. Note: if you don't like jokes about women bringing their husbands sandwiches, consider another guide. (Nov.)
