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'm not sure I would listen again as I feel I can move on to the next in the series. It is a good story and has clear details, more of a fun one shot than a classic reread many times.
My favorite character is Finn's mom. She is not in it very much, but she is written so well that she feels like the iconic American mom. Finn is a close second being a wonderful hero needing help from his friends.
I felt like the reader gave each character personality. His voices made it clear who was talking and how they felt without the narration having to say that.
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.
