    I love the Disney backstories and wonder if there is a resource for them, book, website, etc? i.e. how Dr. Albert Falls founded the Jungle cruise company then passed the business to his daughter who opened the Skipper Canteen. Thanks

    Hello, Brandy and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel from a fellow Disney history and backstory enthusiast.

    I appreciate your fascination with the significance and meaning behind all the details at the Disney Parks. Disney Imagineers leave no stone unturned. Almost everything you see, hear or touch has a special meaning, from the largest most obvious detail to the tiniest, unimaginable detail. For example, at Storybook Circus, Fantasyland, Disney's Magic Kingdom, Disney Imagineers even thought of embedding peanut shells in the concrete ground to emulate the peanut shells on a circus floor. I just love that!

    Two official resources which offer great insight and written accounts of such Imagineering details are the Disney Parks Blog and D23. You will easily spend countless hours reading and re-reading all the wonderful blog post contributions and peruse through the lavishly detailed magazines in complete amazement. I simply cannot wait for you to begin reading all the exciting and informative stories and look at the magnificent photography. Not only that, but the Disney Parks Blog is also the go-to source for any official updates, news, and information.

    Brandy, I hope this information is helpful and I couldn't be more excited for you to begin your Disney backstory adventure.
    Thank you for consulting us, we look forward to assisting you in the near future with a potential Walt Disney World Resort vacation where you can explore all the Disney backstories first-hand.

    Best Disney Wishes~
