Building the most magical place on earth was no fairy tale. Learn the story behind the creation of Walt Disney World. In 1964, when Walt Disney and his brother Roy decided to build a second theme park in the Florida swamplands, they kept it super hush-hush. Why? Well, if word got out that they planned to buy up lots of land, the price would have skyrocketed. So the Disneys cleverly covered up their trail, avoiding the Orlando airport and even using made-up names, like Walt and Roy Davis, for their flights. The deception worked. In covering the history of the "Most Magical Place On Earth," Joan Holub takes readers both behind the scenes and underneath the park (there are secret employee-only tunnels that form one big circle under the Magic Kingdom). Loaded with fun facts, this book is a great companion to Who Was Walt Disney?

Most of us have watched and loved a Disney movie or a Disney cartoon, and it doesn’t matter whether we are children or adults. Born in the year 1901, Walt Disney introduced us to the world of cartoons, animation, and fairy tales. Besides winning 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime and giving us lovable characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, he was also the founder of Disneyland and Walt Disney World theme parks. People who met Walt Disney described him as a warm and outgoing person. But only people who knew him closely knew that he was an insecure and shy man. Some people accused him of being racist or anti-Semitic, whereas others consider him to be a representative of American imperialism. But the fact is that Walt Disney will probably remain an international cultural icon for years to come and will be remembered as the founder of the world’s largest entertainment company. In this book, we will take a look at Walt Disney’s journey to fame.

Walt Disney The name Disney is celebrated throughout the world because of its association with blockbuster animated films and most especially iconic cartoon characters. Just about everyone on the planet, regardless of time, place, or culture, has at one time or another become acquainted with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and everybody's favorite anthropomorphic dog, Goofy. These are the characters that we know and love. Inside you will read about... - Humble Beginnings - Serving in World War I - Disney, Iwerks, and Innovation - The Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse - The Road to Success - Disney During World War II And much more! In recent years Disney has become set to become even larger by adopting a new host of characters from George Lucas' Star Wars franchise. It seems that the name Disney, even 50 some years after Walt Disney's death, is destined to get even bigger. But as much as we can associate the name Disney with these incredible films, it is amazing how little most people know about Walt Disney himself. Few know of Disney's humble upbringing in rural America, learning to draw farm animals and flowers. Very few know the origin of Mickey Mouse, and even fewer know of the role that Donald Duck played during the war effort of World War II. Come along as we present to you a tale just as fascinating as any plot sequence to have ever graced Walt Disney's storyboard.

This expansive, must-have coffee table book paints a robust portrait of the Walt Disney World Resort, across half a century, through diverse and vibrant voices and mostly unseen Disney theme park concept art and photographs. Walt Disney's vision for the Florida Project begins with Disneyland and the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. After an imaginative and expansive design, a unique land acquisition process, and an innovative construction period, the Walt Disney World Resort celebrated its Grand Opening in October 1971. It featured a theme park dubbed the Magic Kingdom and three recreational resorts: Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village, and Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. As Walt Disney World consistently grew and further evolved through the five decades that followed, certain themes reverberated: an appreciation for nostalgia, a joy for fantasy, a hunger for discovery, and an unending hope for a better tomorrow. Inspirational and memorable theme parks, water parks, sports arenas, recreational water sports, world-class golf courses, vast shopping villages, and a transportation network unlike any other in the world resulted in fun, festive, and familiar characters, traditions, spectacles, merchandise, and so much more. The resort has come to represent the pulse of American leisure and has served as a backdrop for life's milestones both big and small, public and private. Walt Disney World: A Portrait of the First Half Century serves as a treasure trove for vacationers, students of hospitality, artists, and all Disney collectors.
