I consider myself a manly man. A guy’s guy. I love football, hockey, beer, my family, cars, beer, a good steak, an occasional good cigar, beer, Walt Disney World . . .
Yeah, that’s right. I’m a grown man and I love Walt Disney World.
Over the years I’ve heard numerous so-called “real men” discount Disney as "just for kids." One construction worker I know refused to take his wife and kids to Walt Disney World. She finally booked a trip without him. Nice move, tough guy. Around the same time I heard a macho comedian say “if my wife wants to take the kids to Disney World, I’d give her the credit cards and tell her to go while I stay home!” Fathers of the year, huh?
Sadly there are many guys just like them under the misconception there’s “nothing for a grown man” at Walt Disney World. They picture singing dolls, flying elephants, and princesses everywhere. They don’t realize Walt Disney World is a vacation destination built to entertain every age, gender, and testosterone level! Nobody ever told them there’s golf, fishing, sports, great food, beer, high-speed thrills, and amazing spectacles even the "manliest men” love!
The truth is I feel bad for these guys. They're cheating themselves, spending too much money (or not enough) on sub-par vacations. With the right guidance, I know from experience they could be having the time of their lives, spending less then they probably think and doing more than they could ever imagine!
"Written for dudes by a dude (with tongue planted firmly in cheek) Ears of Steel: The Real Man’s Guide to Walt Disney World, written by Bart Scott is the funniest, manliest, straight shooting-ist travel book ever written on the subject! Though promising not to be a "girly" travel guide, 'Ears of Steel' has a ball with macho stereotypes making it a riotous read for the ladies, but with enough sugary-coated sincerity to leave even the iciest lumberjack singing It’s a Small World!
"An entertaining guidebook. ...The book is written from the point of view of a man’s man...channel Tim Taylor from Home Improvement and you have an idea of what you are in for." (The Geek's Library, Disney Geek.com)
