    We will be at Disney World Sept 25-30. During this time the latest Percy Jackson book will be released Sept 26. I know this book is published by Disney, will there be any special events or locations to purchase this book in and around Walt Disney?

    Hiya Meghan - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists. We love to help Guests just like you plan your very own, very magical, Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be visiting Mickey and his pals in just one short week - how exciting! There are so many exciting new things to do and experience. Get ready to make some magical memories!

    Meghan, I did some hunting and haven't been able to find any information about any events or programming surrounding this exciting new book release. That doesn't mean there won't be anything to celebrate, but as of now, I don't see anything planned. As far as places to purchase the book go, I think your best bet will be the World of Disney store located at Disney Springs. They have the best merchandise variety, and while not a traditional bookstore, I think they would have it available before other merchandise locations around the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I do have one piece of advice! Since you are arriving a day before the release, I recommend asking the Cast Members at your Resort's Front Desk to see if there are any last-minute activities that have been planned! You could also check in advance to see if the World of Disney store will have the book available. Also, if you're willing to venture outside of Mickey's backyard, there may be release events being hosted at traditional bookstores in the Orlando area.

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue your planning journey. You can stop by any time with additional questions! Also, as you make your magical plans, be sure to include the newest thrill at Magic Kingdom Park – TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise!

    See ya real soon!
