I've had this on my Kindle for a few days and not had the opportunity to read it before today. After reading Leonard's 'The Dark Side of Disney' I was really looking forward to his foray into the world of fiction. I was not disappointed. This story starts with a bang and doesn't let up the pace right 'til the end. I connected with the very believable characters, the plot and writing style sucked me right in and it was fantastic to read a story set in a world I am very familiar with. There were times I had to remind myself it was fiction and not an autobiography (at least I don't think it is... lol), but that just served to aid my enjoyment even more. I can't recommend this book enough, I read it in under 5 hours and will re-read it many times. I look forward to seeing what this promising author comes up with next. Buy it, you won't be sorry.

what a great book!! Ive torn through it in just a few days, and although its not exactly war and peace in length, its certainly a page turner and something you'll want keep reading.
When i started, i thought it was just going to be disney overkill. There seemed to be so many references in the first couple of chapters that i thought it might just be one long in joke for all us disney nerds... but then it found its pacing and the story really picked up. I wont spoil anything on here, but i will say that book had me open mouthed and saying "no way" out loud!! It also made me chuckle quite abit... especially chapter 12.
(It also gave me a WDW related nightmare after i read it before bed! Oh.... and almost made me miss my stop on the train as i was so engrossed in the story
Do yourself a favour and splash out £2.54(so cheap!!) for this kindle book. its well worth it.
I hope this isnt the last foray into adult disney related stores that Leonard does... id certainly read more of his tales.
I read 'The dark side of Disney' in a few hours and really enjoyed it so I was sceptical about a fictional version of the book but I loved it! I read it in an hour and a half and literally could not put it down. The characters were engaging, the storyline was gripping and it was heart wrenching at the same time. The tone is very similar to 'dark side', very down to earth but it worked completely. I seriously would recommend it to any disney fan and really to anyone who finds a little bit of their childhood and happiness in the happiest place on earth.
Wow what a read I did not put down the book and continued reading till I finished it. Such a great story and great character work from Leonard Kinsey, I was made aware of his work from his Disney Exploits and his other book the dark side of Disney. Which if you have not read I definitely suggest you do as well. This story will keep you going till the end!
Great characters, beloved locations, Leonard has created a world that is completely believable and takes you on a journey were have to find out what happens next. More adventures of Lisa & Blaine please
Next time you visit Disney world you will look at those Disney Princesses in a whole new way
I really enjoyed this book. It has a pretty interesting story taking place on the happiest place on earth. This is the first book to suck me in since the last Harry Potter book. The book is written in a really fun way. The highlight for me was the Epcot chapter the book is worth a read for that chapter alone
