  • Designing Disney's Theme Parks : The Architecture of Reassurance

    Does anyone have this book? I'd like to get one but it is awfully expensive... around $125... and difficult to find. Does anyone know why this book is so costly and elusive? If you have read it, please tell me a little about it.

    I have this one and Walt Disney Imagineering. I've had them a good say, 10ish years now. Great books, lots of fun pictures. I don't think it cost THAT much when I bought it back then! That's crazy!!

      I remember seeing the exhibit when it was at the Armand Hammer museum in Westwood. If I recall correctly, the book was considered a good representation of the exhibit... which means it's AWESOME!

      Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

        I've got an extra copy of this book that I've never opened, it's still in its sealed plastic wrap. If you want it you can have it for what I paid for it which is no where near $125 (pm me for details). It's a really interesting book (with loads of great pictures) about what goes into designing the Disney theme parks. The book was written to accompany an exhibition that was called Designing Disney's Theme Parks: The Architecture of Reassurance. The exhibition started in Montreal in June of 1997, and traveled to three other cities, including Los Angeles where it ran from May 9, 1998 to August 2, 1998 at the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center at UCLA. The book is essentially a catalogue of everything that was in the exhibit.
