The ultimate book for lifelong fans

Currently, Walt Disney World is in the midst of celebrating its 50th anniversary. The celebration started on October 1, 2021 and will last approximately 18 months so that as many guests as possible can experience the new magic along the way. It includes the updated 50th anniversary look for Cinderella’s Castle in Magic Kingdom, new night fireworks and more.

And as a companion to this most wonderful celebration, Disney also published a new history book about the park called A portrait of Walt Disney World: 50 years with the most magical place on earth. We were sent a review copy with permission from Disney to check out this story-lesson-in-a-book-written by Disney-creative Kevin M. Kern, Tim O’Day and Steven Vagnini-and it’s definitely a must-have for diehard fans of the parks.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably spent your time watching videos on YouTube about the history of the parks. You may have set for offer as The imaginative story or Behind the attraction at Disney +. And of course, you have visited the parks or even lived on the property to witness this story first hand. Well, even if you think you’ve heard it all or seen it all when it comes to the legacy of Walt Disney World, A portrait of Walt Disney World offers so much more.

The first thing that is likely to stand out to you in this huge, massive book (and it is heavy) are all the beautiful photos that are included on the slim pages. You get everything from never before seen concept art to costume and uniform designs to beautiful pictures of the park new and old and even a few historical photos of the Disney family themselves.

This book is the ultimate coffee table book for Disney fans. And there is just such a thing very wrapped in this so that it stays connected for a long time. Even for the more casual fans, it’s a beautiful side-turner that arouses interest, and it may even have some of your friends and family members converting to Disney die-hards as well.

But between the pictures, the pages are packed with some remarkable stories and history. You start with the birth of the Disney family pre-Walt, and discover their origins in Florida, and how it eventually came in full circle with the man himself who chose the Orlando area to host his very elusive “Florida Project.” In it are stories from the WED workers, Imagineers, Disney legends and so many more people who have seen the growth of this park first hand.

For the most part, after the introduction of the creation of Disney World, the book then deviates from its linear path to talk about the whole resort in different themes – such as nostalgia, fantasy and tomorrow. There you can see how massive the entire Walt Disney World Resort is: World Showcase; Disney Springs; It’s a small world; Grand Floridian; the Galactic Starcruiser; Muppet Vision 3D; Disney’s Boardwalk, etc., etc. It’s all Disney World, and there are many stories to tell about each party’s story.

Finally, the book closes by looking back at some of Disney World’s past festivities (remember the 25th anniversary castle?). And unfortunately, it only spends a few pages discussing the event it is called, the 50th anniversary. Since the book was to be written and published in time for the 50th anniversary, we know, of course, that there is not much they can include apart from concept art. But maybe an extended page about it is something to look forward to when the 60s roll around.

Walt Disney World cookbook

I would also like to mention an honorable mention Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World: Recipes and stories from the most magical place on earth, written by Pam Brandon, Marcy Smothers and Disney Chefs. This was also sent to us for review, and this is definitely the ultimate cookbook for all the Disney foodies out there. And I’m not just talking about Disney Parks fans calling themselves foodies, but Disney Park fans calling themselves foodies because of food, snacks and beverages offered in the park.

On the pages of this book you will find recipes for making real dishes and drinks around the parks. Do you love looking past Pineapple Lanai or Aloha Isle for Dole Whip? Now you have the chance to make something from the comfort of your own home. Have you never had the chance to reach Cinderella’s Royal Table? Then prepare to transform your own kitchen into Cinderella’s castle, as the book contains a few recipes from their menu. And for Star Wars fans, you’ll even learn how to prepare your own Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters.

So if you are an aspiring Disney chef or cook-in-heart, you would like to have this cookbook in your inventory to trigger some of the delicious Disney joy when you can not reach it to the parks.

A portrait of Walt Disney World: 50 years with the most magical place on earth is out now, no matter where books are sold. Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World: Recipes and stories from the most magical place on earth will be out on April 5, 2022, but can be pre-ordered now.
