This review is from: The Epcot Explorer's Encyclopedia: A guide to the flora, fauna, and fun of the world's greatest theme park! (Paperback)
"The Epcot Explorer's Encyclopedia: A guide to the flora, fauna, and fun of the world's greatest theme park!" is a fine guide to the history of Epcot. Each attraction has a detailed timeline and history.
However- "A guide to the flora, fauna" it ain't. I was actually looking for a book that covered some of the interesting birds and fascinating plants I saw on my visits. But there's almost nothing on them at all. It's also not really useful as a guidebook. (Read the Unofficial Guide for that).
It's also not all that exciting of a read. Unlike say "Mousejunkies" you really are not sucked into a desire to get back there, asap.
But as a history of the attractions, it's excellent.

I was under the impression that Congress is the world's greatest theme park. They have been taking us for a ride for years, it seems. Then again that funhouse has no published guide at all. Instead you elect your guides who then proceed to turn out the lights and mug you. Epcot seems much safer and saner.

Nice job, Wulfie, even if just a history of the attractions at Epcot, I bet this would be good.
I can taste the great food from the Mexican pavillion, wouldn't mind going back.
