    That sounds like a fun book. I hope someone here knows the name of it!

      You might be thinking of “The Dark Side of Disney” by Leonard Kinsey

      "Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money."
      - - Walt Disney

        Just finished Disney's Land: Walt Disney and the Invention of the Amusement Park That Changed the World, a sold book going over the early history of the park, was nice to read this as I was watching Disney plus theme park documentaries

        Happy Halloween!!!

          I havent read any Disneyland book thoroughly but from what I can Walt Disney did a lot - got that tons and tons of perserverance. That amazes me, it just sad that he wasnt able to really see the fulfilment of his dream. He touched millions of heart. Great!

            A great starting point for people interested in learning more about Disney is Disney Trivia from the Vault: Secrets Revealed and Questions Answered and its sequel, both written by the late Dave Smith, who had a decades-long career as an archivist at Disney. In the book, fans send in questions about Disney history, and Smith shares his wisdom. The book is divided into categories, such as Disney movies, Disneyland, Walt Disney, et cetera, and is perfect for people with beginner-medium level Disney knowledge.

            Another popular book is Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making the Magic Real, written in 1996. This book details the Imagineering process in-depth and covers every Disney park that existed at that point. There is also a sequel, which covers Animal Kingdom, California Adventure, and Disneysea, although I think the original is better and will suffice.

            For more Disney content, I believe the high-quality Disney magazines given to D23 members are also of great value.

              What do you mean? Walt saw the fulfillment of his dream for ten years!
