28. AllEars.Net

There are many good "unofficial" Walt Disney World websites on the net.  I have highlighted several of them over the past few months.  Some of the sites specialize in park attractions while others focus more on vacation planning.  However, you would be hard pressed to find a resource as all-inclusive as AllEars.Net.

To say that AllEars.Net is comprehensive would be an understatement.  It includes more than 13,000 pages of information on just about everything related to Disney World, Disneyland, and the Disney Cruise Line.The site gets over 30,000 page views per day and has more than 700,000 different visitors every month. Whether you are looking for current news, attraction descriptions, or restaurant menus, AllEars.Net will have it. This site is really a one-stop shop for all of your Walt Disney World questions.

In addition to the obvious information that you would expect to find on a Disney World related website, AllEars.Net also brings us details on more specific and not so common topics. One of these that comes to mind is the section for people with special needs. There is an enormous amount of great info on everything from people with mobility issues, to autistic children, to guests with special dietary needs. The articles in this area of the site are invaluable and I always direct friends and family to AllEars.Net when they have any questions about traveling to Walt Disney World with someone with special needs.

Another great area of the site that I wanted to highlight is "accommodations." There are many places on the web to find general info on Walt Disney World resorts, but I would bet the farm that AllEars.Net has the most detailed and complete summaries of each one. There is a fact sheet available for each resort containing pages of valuable facts and figures including current rates and frequently asked questions. There are also slide shows for every resort displaying photos of the grounds, pools, and even individual rooms. In addition to pictures, most of the resorts even contain fantastic "walk through" videos for us to enjoy. If you have ANY questions about where you want to stay on your next visit to "The World" you should definitely check out this section of AllEars.Net!

AllEars.Net was created 15 years ago by Deb Wills.  She is recognized as an expert on Disney vacations including Walt Disney World, Disneyland and the Disney Cruise Line.  She is also a contributor to other unofficial Disney publications and has appeared on many different podcasts.  In addition to running one of the most popular websites on the internet, Deb actively participates in fund raising events in the fight against breast cancer, of which she is a survivor.  Although I haven't had the privilege of meeting Deb yet, it is obvious that she is a remarkable woman who is a true asset to the Disney online community.

Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward.  See ya real soon!
