Using a cutting-edge technology called DHI - which stands for both Disney Host Interactive and Daylight Hologram Imaging - Finn Whitman, an Orlando teen, and four other kids are transformed into hologram projections that guide guests through the park.
The new technology turns out, however, to have unexpected effects that are both thrilling and scary. Soon Finn finds himself transported in his DHI form into the Magic Kingdom at night. Is it real? Is he dreaming?
Finn’s confusion only increases when he encounters Wayne, an elderly Imagineer who tells him that the park is in grave danger. Led by the scheming witch, Maleficent, a mysterious group of characters called the Overtakers is plotting to destroy Disney’s beloved realm, and maybe more.
This gripping high-tech tale will thrill every kid who has ever dreamed of sneaking into Walt Disney World after hours and wondered what happens at night, when the park is closed.

I think I'll just stick with the audio because braille, my version of print, is crazy expensive. So yes, I'd say it's much better.
Learning who the Overtakers were. They were exactly who I'd hoped they'd be, btw.
Main protagonist's creepy and very familiar sounding teacher. Not quite finished with the first book, but I have my suspicions about this guy. The narrator sounds like Jonathan Freeman when he does this guy's voice, so that's all I know for now.
They may have all failed going solo, but this time, their joining forces.
Brilliance Audio never disappoints. I haven't stumbled across the first book in a series that's captivated me this much since Harry Potter book 1 some years ago. You hit the ground running from page one, so to speak, and it's one massively exciting onslaught of familiar Disney heroes and villains from start to finish. I'm glad I've got 6 credits left because I know where they're going. Thanks for making the entire series available, Audible. I've never gotten to visit Disney World, so this is the next best thing. The author really did his homework. Now Audible, you guys should make some sort of deal with Disney and get Audible Frontiers to do the Pirates of The Caribbean: Jack Sparrow and Legends of The Brethren Court series.
I so disliked this book i couldn't get past the 6th chapter. I used Audible's free return policy for the first time
Yes the story is for the tween market but for an author who spent a preface thanking people for helping get the details right, it was obvious before the first chapter was over that this authors research had been really poor.
The apartment above the firehouse ONLY exists at Disneyland, Not at the magic kingdom in WDW. and the errors just kept on coming.
If you are a real Disney fan who is hoping for a Harry Potter at WDW... You have not found it with this book!
the book overall wasn't the type for me, but the audio made it better. The person reading the book (making the audio) made the book come to life and seem real.
This was a great book and I could totally relate! The voice actor was a little uneasy in the beginning ,but he turned out great he also didn't have a very easy script to work with. I love the disney parks and this book taught me more about them. Personally I think it was a great book for a Disney lover like myself
At times the vocals were too quiet which made it hard for my daughter riding in the backseat to hear over the vehicle noise.
The ending left open questions. I guess the author was expecting this to be a series
I started reading this because my wife and boys liked the print version. It is definitely light listening. Don't expect the details to match the Disney parks exactly. In the same way that the technology is fictional, the author also takes liberties with the location.
Yes to the book no to the reader!
I enjoyed the book. I felt like I was in the park!
Yes. I can't wait until the 6th book is out!
read or listen to the all in order!
This book was great! It's definately a book I can have both my children listen to as well which is really important. They love audiobooks. It made me think about Disney World in a new light which is one of my favorite places to go on vacation. I can't wait to listen to the second book!
