About this item

Slo-o-o-w Down and Savor the Magic, Introducing A Different Kind of Guidebook for a Different Kind of Theme Park Experience, This Is NOT The WDW Guidebook For You If... You want to run around like a crazy person from dawn to midnight trying to accomplish the superhuman task of seeing everything in Magic Kingdom, You need a description of every hot dog stand and turkey leg in the park, You want a mathematics Ph.D. to guide you through the maze of ticket options.

Do yourself a favor. Step beyond the rush-here, do-that frenzy of most guidebooks to truly appreciate the magic behind the attractions. Aaron Wallace avoids the ephemera of prices and menus to explore the heart of the Disney experience. He provides a lighthearted but scholarly look at the history, lore, and literature that inform the designs and story lines of every ride and attraction in the Magic Kingdom. Far from being mere "amusements", these attractions provide a complex, mult i-layered narrative that can be experienced and appreciated just like a great novel, play, or film.

This is a guide for those ready to immerse themselves in the magnificent achievement that is Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. It will fascinate Disney buffs with the sometimes surprising insights it offers into old favorites while offering newcomers to the Disney magic a much richer experience. For the first time, WDW is appreciated not as a mere theme park but what Disney's Imagineers always intended it to be - a work of art. Book jacket.
