Walt's Disneyland- A Walk in the Park with Walt Disney


"Walt's Disneyland" A Walk in the Park with Walt Disney by Marcy Carriker Smothers is an enjoyable, insightful read for Disney's established fans as well as those preparing to visit the park for the first time.  

Extensively researched, "Walt's Disneyland" gives insights on each section of the park. The book is organized as if you were taking a walk through Disneyland with Walt. From Main Street USA to Tomorrowland, key attractions and features from past and present are described in detail. 

Page 62 of the book is dedicated to quotes describing Walt's love of walking his park. Roy O. Disney noted that "Like a kid with a new toy--the biggest, shiniest toy in the world-- Walt used to wander through the park, gawking as happily as any tourist." As Charles Ridgway put it "He walked fast and expected everyone to keep up." I think we can all agree that the rest of the world is still trying to catch up to Walt!

Fantastic photos of Walt throughout Disneyland as it was in the 50s and 60s accompany all sections of the "Walt's Disneyland".  Marcy Carriker Smothers gives readers a true understanding of how the Magic of Disney was created in each land through Walt's amazing vision. 

We suggest you get this book, grab a cup of tea and sit back and enjoy Walt's park. Who could ask for more? A detailed tour of Disneyland via first hand accounts from people who knew Walt Disney personally is the stuff Disney fans wish upon a star for.
