Walt Disney World Trivia Book / Louis Mongello : 3 of 5
Continuing with my Walt Disney World research reading, I thought this trivia book would be nice to get a bunch of facts rolling around in my head, and it did the trick. There are tons and tons of questions with nice, in-depth answers, organized into various sections (one general, one for each theme park, one for the resorts, and so on), and now I know all kinds of cool stuff (such as Disney shoots off $35,000 worth of fireworks every night just for Illuminations!). There are a few annoyances, however. First, all trivia books should repeat the question in the answers section, in case someone just wants to read through it (like me) - flipping back and forth is a pain. Second, there are several photos throughout the book, but none of them are actually of any Disney property (I guess because this is definitely an "unofficial" book), so you mainly see picture after picture of smiling kid faces, which is pretty generic. I didn't find anything that I knew to be inaccurate (of course, I know much more about Disneyland than I do about Walt Disney World), but there were a couple of questions repeated (just phrased differently). Regardless, this was completely fun reading while sunbathing, and I hope I can remember some of it when I visit in September!
