WDW Radio Book of the Month — Sharing the Thrills of a Good Mystery

A chill is in the air, dry leaves crunch underfoot, and Starbucks is serving Pumpkin Spice –October is officially here!

Our book this month celebrates the creepy thrills of a good mystery. Murder in the Magic
Kingdom by Annie Salisbury is 135 pages of action packed, park hopping, Disney-clue filled mystery.

Murder in the Magic Kingdom follows Fantasyland Cast Member Josh as he travels through Walt Disney World theme parks searching for clues to prove his innocence in the death of Imagineering Apprentice Tommy Boyd.

The author’s (Annie Salisbury) first-hand knowledge of the Walt Disney College Program
and VIP Tour Guide role adds credibility to this work of fiction. Utilizing her unique Cast Member experiences, Salisbury creates a detailed, multi-faceted Walt Disney World, one rarely seen by the average Disney fan.

The reader travels with the protagonist to Backstage Cast Member only areas, through the Utilidoor system, and gets a surprisingly interesting overview of the scheduling system.
I highly recommend Murder in the Magic Kingdom to any Disney reader who is looking for something just a little bit different.

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.
