There's a lot of interesting information here, about rides and parks and hotels that were slated for development but never made it off the ground. Some of the ideas I'd heard of before (Disneyland, an Unofficial Biography goes into much deeper detail on several included here), and some were new to me. Unfortunately, the book isn't put together very well - grammatical and spelling mistakes abound, and the organization leaves a lot to be desired; skipping around between years, parks, and projects ...more

My very nice husband gave me this for ... Christmas I think. It turned out to be very handy and very distracting when I needed a handy distracting book. Would not have guessed that the author was British until the use of "u" was pretty constant. Clearly this guys loves Disney - was a little weirded out by his push for Disney hotels, but, hey, we all have our quirks.

As a Disney fan, I love this book. Scratch that, even as a causal reader I love this book. It has tons of info about the things that we're never made by Disney. From rides to hotels and even whole parks, this book is thoroughly enjoyable. Also I really like the transitions in this book. It's a small detail but it just feels really smooth. Defiantly check this one out.

Definitely not the most well-written book I've ever read...and more than a little repetitive at times, but contains far too many cool things about the incredible world of Disney that it was hard not to love it. A must read for any Disney fans!

Can't wait to dig into this one...found it by accident on LuLu. Mostly interested in research for future Disney Park ghost stories, but I did flip through the first chapter and it seems well-written.
