We all seen the magic at Walt Disney World now you will get to see how the magic is made! This is a great and funny read through guest interactions and other cast member situaions. It will make you think twice about asking: "What time is the 3 o'clock parade?"!

Not only is this book a lot of fun to read, it also is very informative and explains a lot of reasons why the park has some of the rules it does. My sister is a cast member, but there is so much going on at Disney, every story was new and unique.

One minute I was laughing, the next I was crying (I'm really sentimental). This book was really great and got me wanting to go to Disney World right now! I definitely recommend it for anyone with a love of all things Disney.
