    Hi, My family is returning to Disney World in a few weeks. Where can I find books about the parks to buy? Such as history, construction, or photos? Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Don!

    Like Belle, I can often be found with my nose in a book, and reading about the history of Walt Disney World Resort is fascinating to me! Walt Disney is such an inspiring man. To think that all of this magic, the fantastical worlds he created in the Disney Parks that bring so much joy to all of us, came from one little spark of inspiration in his mind? It’s truly incredible!

    Thankfully, you and I aren’t the only ones who love to learn about the history of The Most Magical Place on Earth, so there are many options you can dive into. I have seen books on park history show up on shopDisney before, so I suggest you check there to see what's available. It's possible you might also be able to find these types of books in merchandise locations on property during your trip. World of Disney in Disney Springs and the Emporium in Magic Kingdom Park have a wide selection of products and may be the best places to check.

    I know you specifically asked about books, Don, but The Imagineering Story is a show on Disney+ that I highly recommend. It gives you a firsthand look into the creation of many of the attractions in the parks, as well as some of the history behind the magic. Now, if you really want to dive into the history of Walt Disney World Resort, I suggest you look into booking the 50th Anniversary Tour. It will take you on a journey from the past to the present and give you a glimpse into the future of The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    I hope this helps, Don. Enjoy your trip!

    Happy reading,
