    Re: Books about Walt Disney World

    Yes! David Koenig's books about the Disney parks are, in general, really fascinating. The amount of detail he brings to each story within each topic is perfect; Realityland is a really compelling read.
    Check out the Mousterpiece Cinema podcast on iTunes, on Twitter, on Facebook, or on the show's blog!
