Just finished this book and I have learnt so much. From Walt Disney to his parks to the stories behind the scenes. This is a must read for any fan of Walt Disney fans or just Disney fans.

Thank you Jim

Not sure why this has "unofficial" "unauthorized" and/or "uncensored" in the title to be honest. It's the honey-coated extended stories about WD that are widely known and have been published before. Maybe not to such detail, but there's nothing new to it. The foreword says it all - read this until you're able to buy the revised PRINTED version of the book later in the year. I'm a huge Disney fan in general and do like Walt a lot for everything that he's done. But what is called unofficial, unauthorized and uncensored in this book is beyond me. It's uncritical and just as well be the official, authorized and censored disney story...

Two Reviews In One for A Special Book 6 Jan. 2013
By Jerry Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is actually two reviews in one - one review for everyone who does not already own the original Vault of Walt that was published back in 2010. The other review is for those fortunate people who still own the original book. First, to everyone who does not own the original book - this is a very special Disney book that is written by the most knowledgeable Disney historian I know - Jim Korkis. I have read many of Jim's numerous articles on all facets of Disney history, his various other books, and have seen several of his video presentations in front of live audiences. Jim presents his information with fact, humor, and style. Unlike some other authors of Disney books, Jim does not let any bad experiences as a former employee of the Disney Corporation creep into his writings or live presentations. He stick to the facts, avoiding gushing about how perfect Walt Disney and the Disney Company was and is - and also avoiding demonizing every action by Walt or the company. I love that Jim shares many Disney stories that I have never heard before, many told with humor. He verifies or debunks the numerous "urban legends" about Disney, but he will clearly indicate when there are no facts to prove or disprove a rumor. This book is in 5 sections: Stories about Walt Disney, stories about the Disney films, stories about the Disney parks, "other worlds" stories about miscellaneous Disney, and info on Song Of The South - with answers to frequently asked questions. This last section refers to Jim's other recently published book "Who's Afraid Of Song Of The South ...", which I have also reviewed. Most people with any interest in Walt Disney and the Disney Company over the years will be entertained and amused by this book. One final plus to the book is that it contains a foreword by Diane Disney Miller, Walt Disney's daughter. I don't recall her doing a foreword to any other Disney book. If she has, I'm sure the number of Disney books with her foreword is very small. Second, to those who own the original book. In addition to the five new subjects that total about 41 pages, Jim adds some additional info throughout the book of the original book information. The new story titles are: Eating Like Walt, And The Oscar Goes To ... Walt Disney, The Carousel Of Progress, The Man Who Shot Walt Disney, and Song of the South: Frequently Asked Questions. One clarification - although this revised version appears to only be about one half the thickness of the original book, there are not that many pages missing from the original due to the way the books were published by different publishers. The original book has numerous blank pages that separate the stories, but those blank pages are numbered as part of the total pages. Also this newer book has nicer quality pages and a clearer / cleaner type for reading. Any Disney fan who enjoyed the original book will find much in this new book to make buying this book worthwhile. I have not mentioned the Kindle edition, because I don't own a Kindle.

Even better! 1 July 2013
By Wulfstan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Here's what I said about the first edition: "A selection of great little stories by a Disney insider & historian, this book is a must read for any Disney fan. Altho not all the stories are G rated, and many are "behind the scenes", the stories are not exploitative or "Mouse-bashing" as too many other books in this genre are. Still, the truth is there, warts and all.

Many will bring a smile to your face, or a song to your heart.

If there are any complaints, I'd say that a little heavier hand in editing might have helped things flow a bit more smoothly.

Still, I really enjoyed this book, and if you are a true Disney fan, you will too. "

And this book, with it's added material is even better. There's a foreword by Diane Disney Miller, Walt Disney's daughter and five new subjects with about 40 pages of extra goodness. Mind you, most of the material is already published in the earlier edition.

Now this brings up a quandary: if you already own Vault of Walt (say that five times fast) do you want to get this edition with the extra stuff? Well, I did, and I was happy with it. But I am a super Disney fan.

Most readers will just want to get this, the newest edition and not buy both.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious ! 30 April 2013
By geekacres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first discovered Jim Korkis through Lou Mongello's WDW Radio podcast. Jim has been embedded in the Disney family for most of his adult life and has acquired a great deal of Disney knowledge in that time. The various roles he has played on and off stage would make him a dangerous adversary in a round of Disney trivia. And the thing that drove me to get this book for my Kindle is the way Jim presents his facts. He makes them come alive. He is an honest-to-goodness storyteller.

Thanks, Lou, for turning me on to Jim, his wonderful stories, and this amazing book about Walt !
