WDW Radio Disney Book Club: Selection #3: Spinning Disney’s World READING CALENDAR

Welcome, Disney fans, to the latest WDW Radio Disney book club selection, Spinning Disney’s World: Memories of a Magic Kingdom Press Agent by Charles Ridgway.  This is our first non-fiction selection, and we thought it was a perfect choice as we prepare to mark the 40th anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney World!

Please join us as we relive the opening of the Magic Kingdom through the eyes of Charles “Charlie” Ridgway.  Mr. Ridgway is a Disney Legend and has a window on Main Street honoring his work with the Disney company.  He worked as a publicist for both Disneyland and Walt Disney World and oversaw crucial turning points in the theme parks’ development.

We will allow a little time for those who have not yet obtained the book to do so.  Please see below for the reading calendar.

We hope you will enjoy this wonderful journey through Disney history and that it will help you to feel as though “you were there” forty years ago, when the Happiest Place on Earth became a reality!
