Discovering The Magic Kingdom:
An Unofficial Disneyland Vacation Guide

Published July 17, 2017

This is the 2nd edition of my book Discovering The Magic Kingdom. My first edition was published in October 2010 and was 220 pages long with 1,000 Disneyland fun facts in it. The name "Magic Kingdom" was taken from the nickname of Disneyland. It was referred to as "Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom" for years until the Magic Kingdom opened in Disney World in 1971.

My second edition is 700 pages and has over 3,700 fun facts and trivia pertaining to Disneyland and Disney movies. My two forewords were written by Disney Imagineers Terri Hardin (Captain Eo, Muppet Vision 3D, Splash Mountain, Star Tours) and Rolly Crump (Haunted Mansion, Enchanted Tiki Room, It's A Small World). What sets my book apart from other Disneyland books is that all of the fun facts are bullet-pointed. The book doesn't read paragraphically, so the information isn't overwhelming. It is not a chapter book, but more of a reference or encyclopedia book.


My 1st edition was published in October 2010. It is 220 pages and contains 1,000 fun facts.
