Quick read, interesting read.

Starting with the pros:
This book is arranged nicely. If you're in the parks, you could easily complete a walking tour without backtracking. If you're reading at home, but know the parks well, then you can easily place the areas in your head.
The stories are detailed, but not gory.
The book had incidents I hadn't seen other places and helped quell some of the unfounded rumors.
Cons:
There was hasty editing. There are small, grammar errors here and there.

Definitely interesting

The book was well written, like a guided tour through the parks. While not all of the stories might be true, it's fun to read some of the ghost stories that are intertwined with the unfortunate accidents that have happened at the parks. It is a good reminder to follow instructions on rides though. Definitely a must read for Disney ghost lovers

Very interesting - although sometimes a bit dull. Moll goes through all known unnatural deaths at Disneyland and WDW.

The biggest problem I had with this was the lack of sources. Some of the stories are just legends (George? Can I shut down Pirates now?) so sources are probably harder to come by. However, I would have liked a list of articles and sources used to create the walking tour.

Interesting premise, but badly needs proofread. I'd have given it more stars if it were a little better organized and had better editing. I came across more than one instance of formally used instead of formerly. It was really distracting from the book.

Very interesting!

I loved this book and found it fascinating. I enjoyed the "tour guide" style it was written in. Just a small reminder that even the "Happiest Place on Earth" has a dark and dangerous side

Short but interesting. Was hoping for info on the two helicopter flights that crashed on the way to Disneyland but they didn't crash on-property so no mention.
