From the Publisher
This book will help you discover Walt Disney Worlds secrets, history, hidden treasures, and the little details that make everything so wonderful. It is divided into six chapters. Chapter One covers the "World" in general; the next four chapters cover each of the theme parks; and the sixth and last focuses on the areas "Beyond the Parks" the resort hotels, the monorail, Downtown Disney, and the water parks. Each chapter begins with multiple-choice questions, followed by the correct answers and additional fun facts about the subject. Chapter Two: The Magic Kingdom opens with general questions about the park and then is subdivided by land (Adventureland, Frontierland, etc.), while Chapter Three: Epcot, starts with general questions and then is subdivided by its two "Worlds." Thus, a question about Space Mountain, for example, would be found in the Tomorrowland section of Chapter Two. The questions in Chapter One challenge you to remember WDW history and to identify where in WDW you might find a particular character, prop, attraction, etc. or hear a particular line of dialogue (taken from an attraction script or theme song). It also includes questions related to any and all parts of WDW. Chapter Six, in contrast, quizzes you specifically on your knowledge of the non-theme park parts of WDW. Walt Disney World has gone through many changes in its 30-plus years. So some questions let readers take a step back in time to revisit original concepts and attractions that no longer exist. Fans who miss Mr. Toads Wild Ride or were never able to experience Horizons firsthand, for example, can stay in touch or get better acquainted with them here. To add to the fun, youll find fascinating tidbits of information highlighted throughout the book. Looking for all the information you can get about a particular ride, resort, or whatever? Check the Index and look for your subject by name. And try not to be too disappointed if you dont find it. While this book contains hundreds of questions about Walt Disney World, WDW has thousands of nooks and crannies. One book simply cant cover them all.

This book gave me great insight into the many changes and developments that have happened since my visit way back when the author was a very young boy...
Using the multiple choice approach to providing answers to the questions makes it very easy and fun to read. The division into separate parks also allows the reader to "explore" what particularly interests them.
I am pleased to report that Louis Mongello has since released a second volume and hope that he can continue with countless more volumes as the Disney Organistion constantly updates and these parks continue to evolve.
For any Disney fans or anyone considering a vist, this book and it's follow up are a must read! And with Amazon's great pricing, you can afford to give copies to friends...
Oh and by the way, the information is not just boring facts listed on a page, the facts are in a multiple choice format-we read it in the car and make it a "Quiz Show" type game with the kids-they love it!
The facts are amazing within themselves but what I really enjoy is that I can pick it up at anytime, quickly read a few facts and be on my way!
For Disney fans this book is a "must-have"--think you know everything there is to know about WDW well you may be pleasantly surprised at all of the new tidbits of trivia you will find with this book!
