I bought this book for my bright 8½ year old daughter so she could read up and decide which rides she would really like to go on when we go to Disneyland CA and I was a bit dissapointed. From an Adults perspective this book is really interesting and gives you lots of infomration about how the rides came to be and who was responsible for getting them there. It gives lots of detail about Walt Disney's vision and some things to look for in the park. I dont want to put the book down but want to let any parent know that I think the 9 to 11 bracket that they are recommending this for is slightly young. I am 37 and I found it quite a heavy travel book, and I do read a lot.
