In this, their third in a trilogy of books about the early decades of Walt Disney World, R.J. and Suzanne Ogren give readers delightful descriptions of Walt’s final dream, how it came to be, and details of just what it was like “back then.”
While doing so, they weave their own stories, both funny and touching, about their unique experiences working for the Mouse, the creative lessons learned from Disney notables, and how they realized their dream careers.
The title of this book is taken from a quote by Walt Disney. Suzanne and R.J. begin each chapter with a quote by this one-of-a-kind man, who was such a creative influence to both of them, from childhood to the present. These word pictures create the theme of the book, and are a way for the writers to introduce Walt to a new generation of readers.
As you travel from Main Street, through each land of the Magic Kingdom, to EPCOT Center, the hotels—both onstage and backstage—you are transported to the fantasy world by a couple whose descriptions and experiences, from the 1970s to the mid-1990s, take you on a special journey of love, laughter, and magic.
With a foreword by Mike Eruzione, captain of the 1980 Gold Medal-winning Olympic Hockey Team.
