Description

What time is the 3:00 parade? Why does your child need to be 40 inches tall to ride a roller coaster? What happens when the president of France gets lost inside Pirates of the Caribbean?

A former employee, or "cast member", at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom answers these questions, and more, in sharing humorous stories about life working inside the world's most popular theme park.

"Stories from a Theme Park Insider" will take you inside the park's famous tunnels and backstage to see how a theme park really works, with all the funny stories and embarrassments that can happen when your job is someone else's vacation.

    Good stories. Some spelling/grammatical errors that were annoying, but easy to overlook given the price. I'd recommend this for any Disney lover.
  • Fantastic!

    Fantastic book!! I love the part with the other comments. It was interesting, even though it was old information, to see how Disneyworld works in the background. The small chapters are great for reading a bit here and there too!
  • Funny, informative, the true answers from the insiders

    I read this book in one sitting. As I was reading this book I couldn't help but to think about my own personal experiences while at Disney. Reading about all of the backstage info that makes your stay so magical. I found some parts of the book very funny and laughed out loud a few more times. The stories about Pirates of the Caribbean were perfect. Definitely a leisure read worth your time, and definitely read this if you plan on visiting Disney. There are some very good tips to making your stay even better.
  • Fun read. Good stories!

    I worked on the Disney World College Program during the summer of 1999 and the experience was amazing and still influences me today. This book was a great way to hear more about WDW and learn some really good stories. My only wish is that it was longer!
  • Great buy!

    For $3.99 this is a great book to pick up and read :-). If you have been on any number of fan sites u have heard most of this stories before. But for on a plane on way to the magic kingdom totally worth it :-D

    This is a great book (as is his website) for any theme park enthusiast, especially those that are Disney groupies. While I wished it was longer, the material provided had me laughing out loud often and wanting to share the stories with others. I was also touched by the sweeter stories that made me recall times where cast members have gone out of their way to make my experience better. A wonderful way to pass a few hours of your time.
