Product Description:
As Walt Disney World continues to grow and evolve, trust Birnbaum to guide you through it all.
-- Disney's Animal Kingdom is completing its 14-acre growth spurt-the largest expansion in Walt Disney World theme park history. Turn to Birnbaum for details on all the latest additions to this park's immersive celebration of nature. Among them:
• Pandora-The World of AVATAR, set to open in 2017, invites guests to a land themed to the blockbuster film AVATAR. The 2017 edition of Birnbaum's Official Guide to Walt Disney World explores this escapist realm that includes a glowing forest, floating mountains, flying Banshees, and a bona fide "E-Ticket" attraction: AVATAR Flight of Passage.
• Sunset Safaris: A new nighttime adventure takes over the popular Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction. Birnbaum offers insight on how to make the most of an evening visit to Animal Kingdom and experience the magically extended orange glow of the setting sun.
• Animal Kingdom now offers its own version of a Disney park "kiss good night" with the brand-new after-dark extravaganza known as Rivers of Light. Birnbaum sheds light on this combination of live performances, water screens, swirling animal images, and floating lanterns-taking place on and around the Discovery River.
-- The Force continues to gain strength at Walt Disney World. In addition to a sneak-peek at Star Wars Land, currently under construction at Disney's Hollywood-themed park, Birnbaum gives the low-down on all the current fun, courtesy of Darth Vader and company.
• Fireworks have blasted back into the Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Birnbaum explains where and when to view the seasonally presented Star Wars-themed pyrotechnic display.
• Do your youngsters fancy themselves proud Padawans? We can direct them to the all-new Jedi Training Company, where they can learn to harness the Force, wield a light saber, and fight the Dark Side.
-- What's it like to be a toy in Andy's backyard? WDW guests will find out soon - Toy Story Land is on its way! Birnbaum offers a first look at what to expect when this new 11-acre play land is complete.
-- Put on your dancing shoes - Club Disney is a lively new dance party where the "walls come alive with classic Disney animation." We'll tell you where to find it!
-- Get the scoop on new and newly-enhanced theme park shows and attractions, including Epcot's beloved Soarin', recently re-imagined and now known as Soarin' Around the World, plus Frozen Ever After, the wildly popular new family-friendly dark ride that transports guests to Elsa's Ice Palace and other Arendelle must-sees.
-- Speaking of Anna and Elsa, we'll tell you the best way to meet them and even belt out "Let It Go" and other Frozen favorites with the revered royal duo.
-- Disney Cruise Line weighs anchor a mere 50 miles from Walt Disney World, making a surf-and-turf vacation a tempting possibility for many a Disney guest. A special Birnbaum "bonus" chapter guides guests from possibility to reality, laying out all the details for pairing a Disney Cruise with a visit to Walt Disney World.

The Rosetta Stone of Disney Magic

Warning! There be secrets ahead. Disney secrets. Mickey doesn't want you to know how the magic is made, but Jim Korkis knows, and if you read Jim's book, you'll know, too. Put the kids to bed. Pull those curtains. Power down that iPhone. Let's keep this just between us...

If you've come expecting more of the same Disney trivia, you're in for a surprise. This is not a Disney trivia book. It's a book of Disney secrets, each exactly two pages long, and each brimming with backstage lore. Jim Korkis gathered these secrets when he worked at Walt Disney World as an instructor at Disney University. They're all true. They're all cool. And they include:

  • How the popularity of Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach meant the doom of an important piece of Disney history
  • United Arab Emirates, Equatorial Africa, Costa Rica, and other planned Epcot pavilions that never were
  • Disney's original plans for Figment, how corporate politics turned him purple, and why the Dreamfinder shrunk
  • Wilderness Junction, the Alpine Resort, the Enchanted Snow Palace Ride, and other abandoned attractions
  • Beacon Joe, the character you've never heard of, even though he appears numerous times throughout Disney World

The Imagineering Graveyard

On an alternate earth, Walt Disney World guests are taking in the thrills of Thunder Mesa, braving the Beastly Kingdom, marveling at Villains Mountain, and staying the night at Disney's Persian Resort. Want to join them? This is your guidebook to the theme park that Disney never built.

In this unique, extensively researched book, Christopher Smith discusses the many attractions, shows, and resorts that were planned for Walt Disney World, from opening day to the present day, but that exist only in the minds of Imagineers.

You'll find old "favorites" such as Thunder Mesa and Beastly Kingdom, as well as those lost to the pixie dust of time, like Dick Tracy's Crime Stoppers, the Enchanted Snow Palace, and Buffalo Junction. Smith looks at the politics and internal struggles behind the decision to shelve each concept, and imagines what guests might have experienced.

Every park at Walt Disney World—Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios—has its hidden cache of "lost" attractions. They're all here, along with the many resort hotels that Disney intended to build, but didn't.

Put aside those guidebooks of the Walt Disney World that is, and come to a vacation kingdom that you can visit only if you find the second star to the right and then keep straight on till morning.

Learn to Slow Down and Savor the World’s Boldest Theme Park

There’s no place like Epcot. It's the theme park that endeavored to change the world.

Now, more than 30 years later, Aaron Wallace dives deep into the heart of Epcot. Step beyond the typical rush-here, do-that frenzy of most guidebooks to truly appreciate the park’s history, storytelling, and controversies.

The Thinking Fan’s Guide is a lighthearted but scholarly tour through every Epcot ride and show. You’ll learn to unpack big questions like:

• Should a Future World attraction ever take place in the past?
• Are Frozen’s Anna and Elsa holding World Showcase hostage?
• Do Disney characters belong in Epcot?
• Why does the park spend so much time in Ellen DeGeneres’s head?
• Has Epcot lost its way?
• Did the park really change the world?

This is a guide for those ready to immerse themselves in the wondrous achievement of 1982’s EPCOT Center and the multi-faceted, modern-day Epcot it has become.

Longtime Disney buffs will find new insights and surprising perspectives, while newcomers will get more out of their vacations by learning to look at Epcot as a work of art.

Fall in Love with Epcot for the First Time... or All Over Again.
