The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World

by Susan Veness

This book shares interesting little secrets to look for on your visit to Walt Disney World. It covers all four theme parks: The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom, and goes through each park section by section. Some of the secrets are smells to notice, significant pictures that you may not notice unless you know they are there, stories the cast members can tell you if you ask them, sounds to listen for in different areas, interesting background information about some of the attractions, and things to open or pull to get an extra bit of fun. At the end of each chapter, there is a timeline for the park, telling what year each of the parks and their attractions opened and when some were closed and what they were replaced with.

The book was well organized so that it would be easy to look up the area of the park you are in to look for the secrets, but it didn't quite come up to my expectations. I had hoped for bigger secrets, but I guess the author could not write about what wasn't there. I have never been to Walt Disney World, so the book might be more interesting to someone who has been there, especially if they plan to return, because they might be amazed at how many things they missed or were not aware of. Also, I found a couple of grammatical errors; I don't remember the first one, but the second was on page 126: "sites" should be "sights".
