05.27.14 Revised edition. For a book billing itself as "unofficial, unauthorized, uncensored Disney stories never told," this feels pretty damn light. I was expecting... nothing too salacious but still something skirting the edges of the spotlight or maybe showing some of the dirt under the Disney rugs... but what I got was chapters on Walt's favorite foods and how he had a paper route as a kid. It might be all those "un" words compared to the rest of the Disney literature out there but it was hardly what I would call controversial. The stuff I liked the most was the section on Disneyland. It was all real periphery stuff like details about the carousel and appearances by the cast of Zorro, but the few chapters dealing with rides I've heard of or even (gasp) been on were really great to me. I guess this book is maybe too inside for my casual level of Disney knowledge... I'm more interested in the stories that probably everyone already knows like Club 33 and the secret mickeys in the park and development of the more popular rides and stuff like that. I should track down a book just on Disneyland that will probably give me that stuff. This was a bit of a disappointment unfortunately... just because of my expectations.
