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.

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?

An in-depth view of the way popular female stereotypes were reflected in—and were shaped by—the portrayal of women in Disney’s animated features. In Good Girls and Wicked Witches, Amy M. Davis re-examines the notion that Disney heroines are rewarded for passivity. Davis proceeds from the assumption that, in their representations of femininity, Disney films both reflected and helped shape the attitudes of the wider society, both at the time of their first release and subsequently. Analyzing the construction of (mainly human) female characters in the animated films of the Walt Disney Studio between 1937 and 2001, she attempts to establish the extent to which these characterizations were shaped by wider popular stereotypes. Davis argues that it is within the most constructed of all moving images of the female form—the heroine of the animated film—that the most telling aspects of Woman as the subject of Hollywood iconography and cultural ideas of American womanhood are to be found. “A fascinating compilation of essays in which [Davis] examined the way Disney has treated female characters throughout its history.” —PopMatters
