Meet the Author

Steven M. Barrett paid his first visit to Walt Disney World in the late 1980s, after attending a medical conference in Orlando. He immediately fell under its spell, visiting it twice yearly with family and friends for the next several years, offering touring advice to the less initiated, and reading almost everything written about the WDW theme parks. When a job in his field of emergency medicine opened up not far from WDW in 1998, Barrett, a Texas native, Air Force veteran, and former Oklahoma City medical professor, relocated to the Orlando area from Houston, Texas. He began visiting the WDW parks every chance he got to enjoy the attractions, sample the restaurants, and escort visiting friends and relatives. Eventually, their feedback made him realize he had better advice on touring the parks than they could get anywhere else; so he decided to write this book. He followed it up with Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World's Best Kept Secrets, a guide in scavenger-hunt format to over 800 hidden Mickeys in the WDW theme parks, resorts, and other areas. Barrett continues to visit WDW almost every week, finding the parks and other attractions every bit as magical as they appeared to him on his first visit nearly 20 years ago.
