Book Review - The Hidden Magic of Walk Disney World

About the Book
Sure, it's the Happiest Place on Earth, but how much do the 45 million-plus people who visit the Disney World theme parks annually really know about it? From where to find all the hidden Mickeys to the truth behind Madame Leota's ring at the Haunted Mansion, readers learn all about the hidden magic that permeates these fabulous resorts in this tell-all handbook.

Readers also get the insider's take on:
  • The smell of home-baked cookies on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom
  • The Fountain of World Friendship in Epcot that contains water from rivers and oceans around the globe
  • Walt Disney's opening day speech tapped out in Morse Code in Frontierland
  • The eco-friendly benches (recycled milk jugs) in the Animal Kingdom
  • Two versions of The Great Movie Ride at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Complete with secret tips from Disney's Imagineers, this book is the perfect in-park.

My Take on the BookYes, we are HUGE Disney fans. We have been to Disney a number of times both with and without the girls and have read a lot of books on the hidden gems of the park so some of this book shared things that we were aware of. On the other hand the book also shared some things that we did not know as well.

What I liked most about this book was that it brings forth the hidden secrets that you might be able to find if you scour the internet, but instead it places all of them at your fingertips in just one book. The book allows the reader to be able to understand what they are seeing, smelling and feeling when in the park. You truly gain a much better appreciation of the imagineers at Disney that have taken so much time and effort to make Disney the special place that it is!

So if you are a fan of the park, or you yourself are planning a trip. this book is a must have and one that will definitely make your trip more enjoyable and more magical!
