Welcome to the newest WDW Radio monthly series! Join me each month as I review Disney related books and help you find literary treasures. I will take a broad approach, highlighting new, old, graphic, and written. There’s a huge number of published books to peruse with more being published every month. So, get cozy on the couch, grab a hot tea, and come read with me!
For the first book in our new blog series, I wanted to find something that would enrich my upcoming Walt Disney World trip. I was interested in a book that delved beyond the ordinary theme park facts and took a hard look at a specific park element. I found the perfect book in Jeff Heimbuch’s Main Street Windows: A Complete Guide to Disney’s Whimsical Tributes.
At 283 pages, this colorful book explores Disney Main Streets across the globe including Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland. Each page has a colored border that corresponds with a park making it very easy to navigate between parks. For each window tribute description there is a close-up (in focus) color photograph. There are only two windows per page which enable the pages to be organized and decluttered. The explanations of the window tributes are short and sweet giving readers the perfect amount of information. The book is also very portable for guests who carry a backpack.
Even if you don’t have a Disney trip in the works, I strongly recommend Main Street Windows: A Complete Guide to Disney’s Whimsical Tributes for any Disney history buff. See you next month for a spooky read!
My name in Erin Stough. I’m an avid bookworm and Hogwarts student wannabe. My first trip to “the World” was in third grade and I’ve been hooked since. My love for obscure Walt Disney World trivia, back stories (especially about the resort properties), and details led to my writing for the WDW Radio blog since early 2016. I became a proud Disney Vacation Club member in 2004 and my husband and I discovered (and fell in love with) the Disney Cruise Line in 2013. When my nose is not buried in a book, I love listening to new arrangements of classic Disney songs, watching Disney live action movies from the 60’s and early 70’s, and spending time with family.
