From the Author
In researching our Disneyland trivia book "Magic Quizdom," we came to realize that some of our information and trivia was of a certain nature: many details pointed out inside jokes and hidden references to Disneylands past, or had special but hidden relevance to the "real" world. More importantly, these tidbits of information all relied upon a still-extant artifact at Disneyland; something which by its very nature held special significance. Such nuggets deserved to have their stories told independently of the trivia book, so they were set aside and removed from "Magic Quizdom" drafts, and the results grew into "101 Things." The individual 101 Things referenced by the title are all items you can actually point to at Disneyland, so that the book provides a kind of walking tour of the park (in guided tour format, rather than questions format) that yields a glimpse of the deeper history percolating below the surface.
"101 Things" was crafted to be accessible for every level of Disney fan. Newcomers to Disneyana will be bowled over by the volume of detail, the rich layers of self-reference, and the abundance of insider tributes. Readers accustomed to such stories about Disneyland will find a useful resources that not only catalogs such occurrences in one volume, but goes far beyond the usual, and brings a wealth of new stories and anecdotes to the table.

Kevin Yee and Jason schultz made my stay at Disneyland much more magical. Disneyland is constantly changing, so some of the things in this book may be different from when I visitied. I had to ask a cast member in Indiana Jones to show me Eyeore. Many of the Hidden Mickeys, the tributes to people or things past, are really hidden--otehrs are hidden in plain sight. I had to look sharp to find the tributes to the Country Bear Playhouse inside the Winnie the Pooh attraction. Couldn't have done it if "101 Things..." hadn't told me what to look for--and where to look.
