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.

We have a 12, 9, and 8 yr old and they all enjoy this series. My oldest had read the book and suggested it for our car trip story.
We have been to Disneyworld before and they really enjoyed "getting" the settings in the book as well and learning new aspects of the park.
The issue we had with this audiobook was the narrator. His voices for the female characters made me cringe. My kids were laughing at the way he was talking as well even when it was not supposed to be funny. It took away from the story.
Book Two has a different narrator, but so does book three.
We buy the paper books as well as the audio books with this series. Lots of fun!
The author did great research to make the settings really come to life.
24 year old Flight Attendant from Chicago. Always looking for something to listen to at the airport!
Sketchey story with a unbelievable ending....even for magic. Story was all over the place, and written for 1st graders, not for teenagers. Just really, really bad. The charters didn't even meet up to the real ones. Hard to fallow and does not keep attention.
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.
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!
It is an interesting story because it is about a place the readers may have been and can see in their minds. It was well read with good voices.
It was a different type of book to others I have read.
I already got the second book in the series and liked it too. I am waiting on the third one now.
I think children about 10ish would like this book more, or anyone who really likes Disney.
I would recommend the book, but not this performance. It's an okay book,and there aren't any major problems with the writing.
The voices of many of the characters are really annoying. Amanda's voice is fine, but pretty much all of the other kids sound annoying, especially Dillard (I think that's his name.) Dillard sounds like he has a lisp, is always congested, and I think I could do a better job, and I'm female. Also, Aunt Jelly has the most stereotypical "old black lady" voice I've heard in a while.
The book was fine. I got what I paid for. It was very Disney. I recognized the rides they were talking about, which was cool.
Nope. The book is pretty decent, but I don't really like this performance. The voices are pretty bad, the wrong words are emphasized, and a lot of sentences sound like questions.
