soooooo glad i did. disneyphiles, armchair imagineers and theme park design buffs--buy this book, and buy it NOW.
the design is unbelievably lavish and jam-packed with never (i have every book ever written about the disney parks, and i mean NEVER) before seen photographs and concept art. there were maybe only about ten or so images in the entire 192 page volume i recognized. the layout style and writing tone (cute puns for subheads, etc) are very consistent with the original book, and even the form factor is the same, making it a perfect companion up on your shelf.
since the first volume came out in 1996, we've seen the openings of animal kingdom, tokyo disneysea, california adventure, disney studios paris and now hong kong disneyland. as such, this new book focuses on pretty much 1983 to the present. earlier works are presented only in limited nostalgic contexts, but even then, they try to use art that wasn't in the first book. and from the looks of things, they were adding content right up until the publisher deadline, because there is a lot of "blue sky" material from DCA's current billion-dollar makeover.
the most rewarding goodies, however, are the numerous multi-page gatefolds and "mini" content pockets scattered throughout the text. they are all thoughtfully covered with tissue sheets to prevent damage during shipping, so just carefully remove those when you unwrap the book and enjoy.Read more ›
*How they remade and updated classic attractions like the Haunted Mansion in 2007 and It's a Small World.
*Adapting favorite attractions for oversea audiences. For example, because "The Twilight Zone" isn't big in Japan, the Tower of Terror for Tokyo Disneyland had to have a completely different story.
*The directors of "The Little Mermaid" movie working with the Imagineers on bringing a ride based on the film to life.
*The rules of Imagineering, showing that, despite what detractors say, they always have the guests in mind when they come up with stuff.
There's also great looks at what to expect with the redo of California Adventure and "Cars Land," the new Fantasyland, Hong Kong Disneyland attractions and more. For any fan of Disney, this is a must-have volume that makes what Imagineers do all the more fantastic and impressive.
