Disappointed 23 May 2006
By Michaeleen R. Munrow - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book looking for something that would tell me things I didn't know about Disney (I've been to WDW countless times and love everything Disney). And while there were things I didn't know presented in the book, they weren't things that I found terribly interesting.

What you get on each page of this book is a brief statement of #48's "A former test car from Test Track can be seen in the ride's gift shop at the exit" or #89's "Africa is represented by the fictional village of Harambe." After this you get a paragraph (i.e. not alot) on the statement. For #89, you're told about the real village in Kenya that Harambe is based on. There is then a 'furthermore' section which may/may not be related to the info on the page. For example #89's furthermore section is on technology that can't be displayed and the authors talk about a 'makeshift insulator' which is really a Coca-Cola bottle. This is supposed to be 'a nod to both the inventiveness of African towns and the longtime sponsorhip of Disney parks by the Coco-cola company.' If that isn't a stretch I don't know what is.

As another reviewer said, there's little meat to this book and perhaps that's what didn't hold my interest. The one paragraph of info really did not give alot of info and the furthermore sections were hit or miss about pertaining directly to what was on the page. I read through the book once and put it away as I don't think it's a good reference.

Slim book 9 May 2006
By kurt - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The reading was okay, but there wasn't much meat to it. Each page has a paragraph or maybe two that tells a story. Only a handful are interesting as many explain boring stuff like where pictures of old executives are located. One of the most interesting pages told about how Disney bought up all of the FL property using fictitious companies. For the price, I was disappointed as most of it is not notable. If you're a Disney buff, get this from the library and save the $$$ - you can read it in a 1/2 hr sitting.

A pocket-sized tour of Walt Disney World 14 July 2006
By Alan D. Cranford - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've visited Walt Disney World several dozen times beginnng in 1986, have a shelf full of books and videos on Walt Disney World, and even was able to take two of the backstage tours (Keys to the Kingdom and the three-park backstage tour of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney/MGM Studios). Even with all of this under my belt, I found about half of "101 Things You Never Knew About Walt Disney World" were new to me. Many of the trivia tidbits presented by Kevin Yee are part of the tour packages, but there is so much at Walt Disney World!

Compressing four major theme parks into just '101 items' is impressive because what would you leave out in your Walt Disney World book? There are actually over 200 items presented. Things like the "hidden Kermit" in Star Tours (#78) and where the hidden Mickey (and hidden R2D2/CP3O) are on the Great Movie Ride (#71) are things I was looking for during my last visit (July 2004) but just couldn't find. My copy of "101 Things You Never Knew About Walt Disney World" will accompany me on my next Walt Disney World visit. It's almost as good as the guided tour, and much less expensive.

Didn't come close to "bowling me over" as author states in review! 24 July 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was disappointed by this "behind the scenes" book. Not at all as entertaining and delightful as the author wants you to believe. Some interesting facts nestled in a whole lot of information available from other books or Disney themselves. Borrow from the library if you absolutely have to read it yourself

Not alot of new stuff in here for True Disney Buffs 11 Oct. 2008
By Amy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found that I know about 95 of the 101 things in this book and the stuff I did not know was not that interesting. The book, in my opinion, is poorly written. Some sentences did not even make sense to me and they did not gel into a good paragraph. It was a jagged read and I would not recommend it for Disneyphiles that already know the "common" secrets of WDW. My family is part of the Disney Vacation Club, and we have visited WDW at least 2x every year for the past 20 years, just to give you my background!
