Dispatch from Disneyland – Stories and Essays from the Happiest Place on Earth
I recently had the pleasure of reading “Dispatch from Disneyland – Stories and Essays from the Happiest Place on Earth,” a book authored by John Frost (thedisneyblog.com). It has taken me a few weeks to share my thoughts because I have actually gone back and read the book several times. I thoroughly enjoyed John’s style of writing – it often feels like you are sitting with him over a cup of coffee while he shares a story.
A little bit about John: “John Frost was born with Disney in his blood. His grandfather was one of Walt Disney’s Imagineers and his mom and aunt had both worked at Disneyland. John started regularly writing about The Walt Disney Company online in 1992 and joined LaughingPlace.com when it launched in 1999. In 2004, he had opened his own website about Disney, TheDisneyBlog.com, which he still runs today. Dispatch from Disneyland is John’s first book.”
From the very first chapter, I found myself immersed in John’s story. For a Disney fanatic such as myself, the information, observations and stories that are told in this book are not only fascinating, but also have you thinking back on your very own experiences. I am partial to Chapter 6 entitled, “Alone in the Park.” I found myself picturing me in the story!
“Dispatch from Disneyland – Stories and Essays from the Happiest Place on Earth” is a must read for anyone that has been a long-time lover of all things Disney and the history behind the magic, and any new Disney lover will find themselves wanting more after experiencing these tales.
