Decent read with one main fault- She was not really in Disney World
on 9 September 2011
I enjoyed this book- quite well written and moderately interesting, although really a diary account of a gap year.
Given the title, a lot of people will buy this thinking it is an insider's account of working in Disney World, it is not really.
This is because the author simply got a job at the Duck and Tuna hotel. Now this is technically on Disney World property, but for anyone who does not know, Disney World land equals nearly 40 square miles.
This hotel is on this land, near Disney Boardwalk (a shopping area where anyone can just park up and walk around without having to pay to get in- i.e. not in actual 'Disney World' as most people would call it) and Downtown Disney (an even bigger version of the Boardwalk). The hotel is not even owned by Disney.
So by all means buy the book- I enjoyed it- but don't expect it to be telling you about 'secrets' of the parks or how Disney itself runs things.
