This left me wanting so much more! I can't help but think there are tons of images they had to leave out. Such are the exigencies of publishing I guess.

More than that, I wanted to know more about the images featured as well as the attractions they illustrated. I'd also like to have known the internal purpose of some of the artwork. It's full of beautiful stuff and I definitely plan on adding it to my library.

Short but informative captions alongside outstanding concept art from a variety of talents yields a thoroughly enjoyable browse. I thought I had seen much of what art there is that relates to the Disney theme parks, but this focus on Walt's original vision was full of new (to me) visual pleasures.

Fun art and short descriptions, but mostly a coffee table book; not one with a lot of depth and history. Still, the art is fascinating, and its fun to see what early Disney creations made it to fruition--and which ones did not.

There's not a lot of text to this one, it is mainly a book that shows some of the earliest elevations of the park, and some of the pieces done during remodels of the lands. I would definitely recommend this book if you're a Disney fan.
