Meet the Author

Louis A. Mongello has been fascinated by the Walt Disney World Resort (WDW) since his first visit at the age of three, when WDW and the Magic Kingdom were just over a month old. Since then, he has visited on hundreds of occasions, each one more enjoyable than the last. He has endeavored to learn everything he can about this magical place, assembling a vast array of Walt Disney World memorabilia in the process. Louis’ other interests include poker, computers, travel, and just spending time with family. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Villanova University and received a Juris Doctor from Seton Hall University School of Law in 1994. After serving as law clerk to the Presiding Judge of the largest vicinage in the nation, he practiced law actively for nine years. During that time, he formed and managed a computer consulting and web development firm for small businesses. He still doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up. Louis lives near Orlando, Florida, with his wife Deanna, daughter Marion Rose and son Nicolas Peter.

    THE MUST HAVE BOOK FOR DISNEY FANS OF ANY CALIBER

    This is a great book for everyone, from the die hard Disney fan to the casual observer. loaded with everything from useless fun facts to Disney history and lore, Lou left no stone unturned. Also, the multiple choice quiz, with answers after the chapter, was a very fun and refreshing format. and, if you enjoy Disney and/or the book that much, Lou maintains an excellent website at www.disneyworldtrivia.com which has more facts and trivia as well as a forum to discuss all things Disney with other fans. on a side note, Lou and this book saved my life. one night, traveling along Rt. 18 in East Brunswick, while drunk and high i crashed my car. i watched a bunch of other cars drive by leaving me for dead, but one man stopped.......Lou. he pulled me from the burning wreckage and performed CPR to bring me back to life. he told me to wait while he ran and got help and left me with a whole box of his books to burn for warmth. as i began burning the books i began reading, and it kept me distracted until Lou returned with help. The next several days, his book helped me through the pain of my injuries and the DT's. if it weren't for Lou, i wouldn't be here today, he's truly a wonderful human being.

    Great way to pass the time

    We quizzed each other with facts from the book while standing in line or waiting for shows to start at WDW. Many people asked us where we got the book and joined in the fun. Made a lot of new friends that way! Loaded with fun trivia facts to keep you thinking.

    Outstanding, simply outstanding

    I will be taking my first real trip to Disney World in the fall and have found this to be a must have. The questions are super and the detailed explanations are even better. To add to the book there is even a website. Talk about a well thought out product. Lou has done his home work, and then much more, to make this book one of the best books on the market for those that are just curious about Disney World to hard core veterans.

    Fantastic

    This book was great for a fun way to keep children entertained and get them excited about Disney World. It is not only fun for the kids but for those who are still kids at heart. It is a must have book of fun fact, cool secrets and the history of Disney World.

    great disney trivia book

    This a great Disney trivia book. I couldn't put it down. The book is great for getting ready for any trip to WDW. Having taken several trips to WDW, this has shown me things that I really did not know about the parks from our experiences there. I highly recommend the book for new and experienced disney travelers!
