    "A man's experience and insight"

    There are a lot of details about the inner workings of the specific areas in Disneyland where the author worked. Humorous tidbits and insights a-plenty on cast members, visitors and the magical nature of Disney's dream land along with how the author attributes much of his later life to those experiences keep the book light and pleasant. The narrator is good and adds a touch of life to the author's words.
    This brought back fond memories of the fun I had visiting Disneyland and I hope to be able to travel to the magic kingdom once again.

    "Review "

    This book is not bad, but not exactly what I had expected either. The narrative could have been a little more lively and exciting, especially for a book about Disneyland, but it was original material mostly. For that I can forgive some of it's blandness. 2.5 stars overall. Unfortunately the ratings above don't allow you to cut the stars in half.
