UPDATE! May 7, 2013
I've spent the majority of the day doing some final
editing work on the new book and thought I'd share the introduction to
the book with you guys! Enjoy!
When Disneyland first opened in 1955, Walt Disney
dedicated Fantasyland by stating, “Here is a world of imagination,
hopes, and dreams. In this timeless land of enchantment, the age of
chivalry, magic, and make believe are reborn, and fairytales come true.
Fantasyland is dedicated to the young, and the young at heart. To those
who believe that when you wish upon a star, your dreams do come true.”
Sixteen years later when The Magic Kingdom opened in The
Walt Disney World Resort, it was clear that Magic Kingdom would once
again be home to a land where fairytales come true. It would be a place
where elephants fly, guests could take undersea adventures with sea
monsters, or they could even take a wild ride with a toad. Over time the
land has evolved. Some things have stayed, some have gone, and new
adventures are always on the horizon.
There is no question that this land of enchantment has
captured the hearts of millions from around the world, but how well do
guests actually know this land? Throughout this book we will discover
the history of the land, attractions, shops, restaurants, and more!
Along the way we’ll be taking a closer look at the storylines while
pointing out the details most guests walk by without ever realizing are
But without any further delay, it’s time for us to take
A Closer Look at Fantasyland! Enjoy!
My brother, Tyler Dodge, has always had an interest in
drawing. Due to his amazing support for my previous book, website, and
podcast, I asked him if he'd be interested in helping me with a cover
for my next book.
I pointed out that I'd like to have the New Fantasyland
walls on the side with the title of the book in between. Here is a look
at the first concept of the cover (just art)! I hope you enjoy and make
sure you let Tyler know in the comments section what a great job he did!
UPDATE! The book cover is all set and ready to go!
There are two pictures below. The first is the cover for the pocket
sized book, while the other is the cover for the ebook! More news about
when the book is released coming VERY soon!
