Leaving Walt Disney World to return to the “real world” back home is always bittersweet. I’m happy to return to my family and pup in New Jersey, but as the plane takes off down the runway, I can’t help but already miss my castle…err…home away from home. Thank goodness the stores with in the Walt Disney World Resort are stocked full of wonderful trinkets to purchase and serve as a reminder of a magical vacation. There are so many wonderful and unique souvenirs to choose from that it can prove difficult on your wallet and luggage!
For me, I absolutely adore books and nothing beats a Disney book. Walt Disney World offers some wonderful options that can truly help capture the magic of the parks regardless of age. Collecting Disney themed books, especially ones centered on the theme parks, is my passion and my bookshelves overflow with many interesting titles. My Walt Disney World themed books tend to fall into one of three categories; story books about the parks, books about the creative process behind the park, and biographies/autobiographies of the people who created the parks. Let me show you a few of my favorite books in circulation!

Erin Stough has always loved Disney, but the magic of the parks truly captured her imagination during a mother-daughter trip in 2001. The fire was ignited and Erin hasn’t looked back! When she isn’t devouring Disney related books, Erin spends time with her wonderful (and patient) husband and super pup Milo.
