I am happy to be your book host for the first book of 2012. When I’m not in Walt Disney World, I am often reading about Walt Disney, the theme parks, or fiction stories based on Walt Disney World property.

As for my Disney history, I went to Walt Disney World for the first time when I was five years old. Being one of eight children, I didn’t go again until I was ten. While I continued to visit Walt Disney World as an adult, my Disney passion began seven years ago. I have visited Walt Disney World about twelve times in the past seven years. Online communities have helped me to connect with Disney friends I would never have met in my day to day life. In the non-Disney world, I am a teacher who enjoys bringing a little bit of pixie dust in the classroom each day!

With a new year, we will be starting a new book! We will be reading Jim Korkis’ The Vault of Walt. Jim Korkis has been a guest on WDW Radio discussing Disney history and the stories he is working so hard to preserve.

Book Cover

If you are new to the book club and would like to see how easy it is to join in the discussion, please check out the WDW Radio Disney Book Club.

Purchase The Vault of Walt by Jim Korkis on Amazon.com

It is also available in Kindle format for instant download and enjoyment.

The Vault of Walt is organized in themes. Each theme contains stories, anecdotes, and quotes that Jim has saved from being lost forever. We will be following the themes and choosing a few stories to enjoy each week.

In order to give book club readers time to order, receive and begin reading The Vault of Walt, we will start posting about this book on January 22nd, 2012.

Here’s to a new year full of health, happiness, and The Vault of Walt!

  5. I am so happy to see that the wdw book club is continuing!! I loved the book club last year and was sad during its hiatus!! Can’t wait to start reading wtih wdwraido.

  6. I first learned about Jim by listening to the show, and have enjoyed hearing him ever since. He and Lou have a great rapport and I feel like I’m sitting at a table with two (very intelligent) friends as we all talk about Disney. The sounds of the park in the background are AWESOME and it makes the experience even better. Thank you, Lou for all that you do, and for introducing me (and everyone else) to Jim! :-)
