    Books about Disney

    Does anyone have a reccommendation for a good book about Disney? Not necessarily a guide book or a history timeline, but just something with little secrets about Disney or about the workings of the company

    Walt Disney World Trivia Book is one of the better ones. I also like Inside Disney: The Incredible Story of Walt Disney World and the Man Behind the Mouse,

    eBay is also a great place to look for the older books that are no longer in print.

    Disney World Trivia by Lou Mangojello and Hidden Mickeys by Steve Berret are all you'll ever need.

    I won a copy of Disney A-Z by answering all the questions in the "Ask Dave" column in the Disney magazine a few years ago. I love it.

    I honestly forget what the title of the book was, but I believe it was the first in the Dirk Pitt series by Clive Cussler. I can't get much more specific than this, since I only skimmed the novel to get to this part, but a foreign VIP of some sort was making a visit to the Magic Kingdom along with his entourage. A band of international scum with an assassination plan had holed up inside of Pirates of the Carribean, dressed for the part and hiding among the automatons. It was up to Dirk (our hero) to throw on a frilly shirt and three-cornered hat, grab a cutlass, and get in there to save the day; all the while making it look to the tourists to just be part of the show.

    I'm just a little annoyed I didn't come up with this scenario on my own.

    Cool TNina!! I love that book myself and use it frequently. DH got it for me as part of my birthday package. (He went a tad overboard with the gifts that year...I'm not complaining...just saying)

    Fans of the Haunted Mansion should check out:
    The Haunted Mansion: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies by Jason Surrell.

    IF you buy Lou's book from this website, he'll sign it for you!

    I do hope so! I'd love to have a hard bound edition with the updated information.
