        The only 2 disney books I have are, Disney: Then, Now and Forever and Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind-the-Dreams Look at Making the Magic Real. I am ALWAYS looking at the Imagineering book. It such a fantastic book and is a MUST if your into the creation of the parks and talks a lot about the making of each resort, TDL, DLR, DLRP, and WDW.

            Re: Best Disneyland Books

            IMO Disneyland: The Nickel Tour is one of the best Disneyland books ever.

            Every one CB mentioned are amazing as well.

              That's the one book I don't have.

              Oh and I forgot that I have the Pirates and Haunted Mansion books by Jason Surrell. Those are also really good.

                Yeah it is pretty bad. Fortunately, it was a gift from my grandma so I didn't waste my money on it. haha!

                And all the books on Coheteboy's list are on my Wish List. I've looked at all of those and want them all! I'm pretty spoiled I guess. )

                          The Nickel Tour. Bar none, greatest book about the park ever.

                          The Surrell books are great suppliments, followed by the Imagineering Guides. Mouse Tales is fun if interested in getting underneath the Pixie Dust, but you need a fundamental grounding on the Park first.

                            Agreed. No collection of Disneyland books is complete without it.

                            It's expensive, but it's worth 10 or 20 other Disneyland books put together.

                              I used the Unoffficail Guide book and the Birnbaum book alot...they were very helpful in planning.
