The "UFOs are real" documentary that Walt Disney Studios almost made
I have long been a fan & supporter of Didier Ghez 's "Walt 's People" books , that series of paperbacks which collects amazing interviews with Disney Legends. But with Volume 11 of this series, Ghez has truly out-done himself. This 630-page book features 36 separate interviews which...

"Be Our Guest" features an unvarnished take on Disney Company history
I have to admit that It's been kind of amusing to watch the reaction (both here and elsewhere around the Web) that Tuesday's "What's really behind the sudden change in Disney Parks & Resorts' facial hair policy" story has been getting. With all sorts of would-be Disney scholars...

Are the Imagineers taking another shot at getting a shoot-the-chutes built at a Disney theme park?

How come Hong Kong Disneyland can have a frightening Halloween event but the Anaheim original can't?
So how did Disney diehards react to the recent news that Walt Disney World would soon be getting a brand-new interactive experience, " Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom " ... Copyright Disney Enterprises, Inc. All rights reserved ... and Disneyland Park would soon be bumping out the borders of...

Original Disneyland train cars reunite at Carolwood Foundation's Combine event

But I have long been interested in the park as it existed in those early years: how art directors and set designers used their cinematic skills to recreate...

"Disneyland Through the Decades" offers a different take on this theme park's fabled history
When so much has already been written about Disneyland , how would you then go about putting together a brand-new book about the Happiest Place on Earth? That was the challenge that Jeff Kurtti faced when the folks at Disney Editions approached him last year about possibly putting together a new hardcover...
