"What a wonderful book. As soon as the story get going it is difficult NOT to keep reading. The research and attention to details of Disneyland made me want to go to the park and relive childhood memories and make new ones. And reminders on what the park was built for-a place for families to spend time together. The active search for clues kept me anxiously involved to see what would happen next and where it would lead them. The ending doesn't disappoint and neither does the book..."

"What a fantastic book! I thought this would be a book for just Disney fanatics (which I am), but it wasn't! This book was full of suspense, and I could not put it down. It had a great story and great characters, and it kept me guessing. The historical aspects of Walt Disney's life were extremely interesting. How fun would it be to go on the adventure that Adam, Lance and Beth went on! Great job, Nancy and David!"

"I had so much fun reading Hidden Mickey. If you are a Disney fan, a Mystery fan, or both, this is a must read for you! The story is well written and I was riveted. When I had to put the book down, to cook dinner or clean up a bit, I couldn't wait to pick it back up! To think Walt could have left such a treasure of any kind is so fantastic! Even though the story is fiction, I found myself thinking, "Wow, that could actually be there!" I couldn't wait to see how the story ended! Well done!"

"I really enjoyed "Hidden Mickey" - I am a sucker for a good mystery/adventure story and this was definitely one that kept me intrigued! It is a very exciting idea that Walt Disney may have left a treasure for his devotees to find - as the mystery unfolds, you want to be there to see what is uncovered! I look forward to the movie..."

I loved this book! It had me hooked from the first chapter! I couldn't put it down. I was going to take a break before reading the second book, but couldn't and bought it right away. Starting it tonight!

Although the characters are paper thin, this is an extremely fun read. I must say though, that If I had to read one more time how good looking a certain character was I was going to lose it, every time writer started describing his looks or admirers, I had to skip a chapter. If you are a fan of the movie National Treasure you will probably enjoy this book. A little predictable at times but highly enjoyable to any Disney fan.

This was great. The story mentally takes you to Disneyland! Great Disney history with a fun fictonal treasure hunt, surprising last few pages too. Gave it 4 stars only because I got a little sick of one characters good looks constantly being thrown in. Looks like I'll be reading the second one soon.
