    Although I don't get to the parks as often as I'd like I do love to read about them as much as possible, and I consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable at the parks even though I can't get there as many times as some. I have read through about half of this book and I already feel much more confident about my knowledge of the parks and I have all the facts right here in one book. Thanks for taking the time to write this Lou, and thanks for making it so affordable for everyone.

    Better late than never!

    I FINALLY posted my review at Amazon, and as Dissylove apologizes for being so late to the game on the reviews, here is a portion of it for all of you as well:

    f you have ever marveled at the space in Florida that tourists from all over flock to for a little bit of magic, this book really dissects how Walt Disney World came together to be what it is today!

    The author pointedly forms the book in a smart, question and answer style that provides an interesting, informative look at the history, legends, details, rumors and magic that is Walt Disney World.

    If you like trivia and want to know more about Disney, this book will both make you more knowledgeable and more appreciative of this American marvel.
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    I got my book the other day and the next chain of events was something like this:
    I opened my package,
    I opened the book,
    I read the book straight through and couldn't put it down!

    what an amazing wealth of knowledge! and it's done well so that it doesn't ruin anything for either people who have never been OR veterans!

    what a great book and a great value!

    Thanks Lou for signing my copy and for writing my current fave book!

    If we can dream it, we can do it

    Thank you very much, 7th! I really do get a smile on my face when I read something like that. To know that someone enjoys what you have done is a very unique and wonderful feeling. (and the flattery doesn't hurt either)

    Thank you again for the purchase and kinds words - they are both sincerely appreciated

    I received a number of emails recently about people asking if/when/why Disney doesn't carry the books in the parks. After I'm done weeping quietly to myself I answer, giving the best reasoning I can come up with. People often ask what they can do to try and help make that happen.

    Well, I wish there was a "magic" formula, or something that I knew would work, but one thing people have done in an effort to gain Disney's attention is post favorable reviews of the book on Amazon.com. For that, I am extremely grateful, whether Disney ever decides to pick it up or not. But I think that in the long run, it is extremely helpful no matter what, so if you ever feel so inclined and really like the book, take a second r two and post your review of Volume I over at Amazon.com.

    Thanks!!!

    Ugh. I just read the Amazon.com page for Volume I, and someone gave me a one star review becuase he 'wasn't expecting' the question/answers format.

    If that person visits these forums, I would have gladly given you a full refund out of my pocket, rather than have you give such a devastatingly low ranking, just becuase the format wasn't what you expected. Had you/he read any of the reviews on the page, it is clear that the format of the book is that way. Sorry if you or others were disappointed.

    Thumbs up

    Thats okay Lou, wait till you read the review I did for Volume 2! And remember you can't please everyone. Dan Brown was told many times to hang it up, he was just not going to be a writer. I think he is doing ok for himself now.

    You shouldn't even think about giving a refund. What were they expecting? How is that format any different from just stating the facts? It sounds like someone just wanting attention to me.

    Hi Lou
    I love the book, and rated it as a four on Amazon, but it may not show up as I got it from Amazon.co.uk, not the US site.
    My bf has never been to Disney, and has been learning all about WDW since we booked our holiday last year. We sit in the hot tub and read your book and I ask him the questions! What I like about it is that it is different from the usual 'go here do that' books you get about Disney. We have loads of things to look for on our trip now! I will try to get hold of the second book while I am in the US.

    Hello Lou, I finally was able to order both of your books Volume I and II on this site today and I can't wait to get them. My husband says I am a Disney freak and I say "Yaa Buddy!!" We are going in November for our anniversary and will find the books very useful.

    I will be back when I receive and read the books.
    Love Disney. I hope to go next spring with the whole family.
