    AWESOME!

    I can't believe this! I have looked at many Disney World related books, but none as amazingly accurate, funny, and helpful than this series or whatever with all the other ones. I really want to become an Imagineer when I get out of college, and I know quite a lot about Disney World, trust me! Ive's studied it ever since I was 12. So, if you think, oh, it probably doesn't have any helpful information... I KNOW IT ALL! Think again! It was helpful to me, a dedicated Disney World fan! So, GET THIS BOOK! I love it!
