My family and I have been avid Disney World fans since our first trip back in 1999 with our girls and thank having made the move to Central Florida in 2004, we have been Annual Pass-holders and go as much as we can.
I’ve had people ask us a bunch of times..
‘when you go so often, don’t you run out of things to do.. don’t you get bored?‘
And to be perfectly honest, my answer is always no.
Disney World isn’t just an amusement park. It’s a carefully designed experience that is constantly changing and has lots of wonderful mysteries and hidden magic that make it exciting to go each and every time.
There are tons of great sites and groups out there that share all this wonderful magic that is Disney World, but sometimes it’s just fun to sit down with a real book in hand and learn about the Hidden Magic that you might be missing as you walk through the park.
Susan Veness had done a fabulous job of putting together a wonderful book called The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World. Now in it’s 2nd Edition, this book is packed with amazing facts, surprising stories, and signature secrets that are embedded all over the Walt Disney World parks and resorts.
I had the pleasure of reviewing this book when it first came out, so I was thrilled to sit down with this 2nd Edition and learn some of the newer Hidden Magic that is found in places like the new Fantasyland expansion. You’ll get an insider’s take on things like:
- The surprise song that plays in the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Ride
- A lipstick stain on the champagne glass sitting on the table in the Tower of Terror
- The Disney family coat of arms standing guard at the entrance of Cinderella’s Castle
If you’ve never been to the parks, or have been many times and are looking for some new things to learn and find, I highly suggest getting a copy of The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World.
