John Frost writes, "I am the author of TheDisneyBlog.com, which Boing Boing has linked to many times over the years. My's grandfather was one of Walt Disney's Imagineers who helped carve Disneyland out of Southern California Citrus Groves. Every summer of my youth, my's family drove down from Portland, OR to experience Walt's park. So when I thought about writing a book, Disneyland seemed the natural subject. Originally funded via Kickstarter, Dispatch from Disneyland is my love letter to The Happiest Place on Earth. The collection of short stories, essays, and interesting facts will make you laugh, cry, learn and most of all wish you were at Disneyland right now."
Watching colossal fireworks boom above Sleeping Beauty Castle, sailing down the mighty Mississippi River aboard a powerful sternwheeler, or strolling along Main Street U.S.A. while sweet nostalgia licks at your periphery, these are a few of the magical moments you might create on your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.
Dispatch From Disneyland is a collection of stories, essays, and interesting facts written for those who love Walt Disney’s original theme park, but don’t have the good fortune of visiting the park as often as they wish.
Inspired by the park that Walt built, Dispatch from Disneyland takes readers on a “you are there” emotional journey to Disneyland via the power of story. Each “dispatch” is meant to bring the reader to a place that reminds them of the magic they feel when at the park themselves.
Also included are a collection of essays and interesting facts that help make Disneyland the number one destination for Disney fans around the globe.
