Walt Disney was a very interesting man with a go get ‘em attitude. When he set his mind on something he would do everything he could to accomplish is. Many Disney fans are thankful Walt was on a mission to make his dreams come true. Mostly because now everyone’s dreams can come true at the Disney parks found around the globe.

Have you ever wondered how the parks came about? Or what Disney was thinking when he created Mickey Mouse? Well, look no further. Here are some must-read books featuring the many different aspects of Disney history.

  • The Story of Walt Disney by Bernice Shelden
  • Windows on Main Street: Discover the Real Stories of the Talented People Featured on the Windows of Main Street, U.S.A. by Chuck Snyder
  • Project Future: The Inside Story Behind the Creation of Disney World by Chad Denver Emerson

  • Walt Disney: An American Original by Bob Thomas

Once you read these books you will have a more in-depth look into what made Disney the company it is today. There are so many interesting facts and information that will have you looking at Disney completely different.

Walt Disney World Travel Examiner’s recommendation: My personal favorite is Windows on Main Street. Read this book and make a game out of finding the different windows that are featured in the book. It is a fun activity and gets you to look past all of the excitement of the theme park. Definitely a must-read in my book.

Happy traveling!
