    I really liked The Animated Man: A Life of Walt Disney. Obviously, it's not solely about Disneyland, but it does cover the development of the park in depth.

    The Disney Mountains: Imagineering at it's Peak....
    that book talks about all the mountains around all the parks and the ideas that inspired them..(plus surprising facts here in there about various ideas..I.E Michale Eisner wanted a statue of Darly Hannah in mermaid form, to promote the movie Splash right in Splash Mountain)

    Disneyland Through the Decades is another good one if you're interested in seeing uncommonly seen pictures. Good write-ups, too.

    For any one who's read both Mouse Tales: how does the second book compare to the first?

    It depends on your interest. Are you interested in history? Design philosophy? Specific attractions? Hidden Mickeys? Behind-the-scene stories? Business practices?

    What specifically about Disneyland do you want to study further?

    If you can find issues of E-Ticket Magazine, they were wonderful! (I know, they aren't a book, but well worth finding!)

    The Haunted Mansion: From The Magic Kingdom To The Movies

    Pirates of The Carribean: same subtitle

    Both are by Jason Surrel, I believe, and he also has a book about the Disney "mountain range" in the theme parks (Big Thunder, Matterhorn, Splash, Everest).

    All these are very good if you want more info on those specific attractions, and have a lot of images and "inside information"
