    One thought on “Disney Declassified”

    1. Judging from the title, I was more curious about what could possibly be scandalous about Disney? However I soon discovered that this book is more about the bad behavior of regular people (come on do they really think they can get away with that?), the tragic accidents, and sometimes unavoidable situations that happen to "Disney". Rather than a just a tell all book, it is more of a short history that delves into Disney background stories for each situation. It's almost like being on a Disney ride [...]

    2. This book is not well-written or organized (it has a self-published feel), but it contains lots of interesting tidbits and stories about people behaving badly on Disney property or in the name of Disney, accidents and deaths that have occurred at the parks, and people trying to make a quick buck off the mouse (and in turn, Disney initiating some ridiculous lawsuits). This book is for those fans who want to read the behind-the-scenes dirt that Disney would prefer to keep quiet. However, the autho [...]

    3. About two weeks ago when I bought some books, I bought this book too. After reading a few, I chose to read this one in the list. I didn't really like this book. The format was terrible, as the author moved from one topic to another without some type of section notification, and more-so the topic of "bad people who don't learn" really got old-school to me. I finished it, but I didn't like doing so. Despite the chapter headers, this book should have had section headers which this book was lacking [...]

    4. I like to read anything Disney related, so when I saw this book, I knew I had to read it.This book offers Many "behind the scene" stories about various things going on at Disney World and even Disney a Land.Some stories had me shaking my head in disbelief, while others made me feel ashamed to be a human being because of the ways that some people try to make a quick buck from "The Mouse".I still enjoyed this book and found myself not wanting to put it down. Very interesting indeed!

    5. As usual,another great win from loved this book. Put a bit of a different outlook on Disney. I love books like this. It was greatI'd recommend it,especially if you love Disney.

    6. Not quite what I was expecting - I had expected more of a behind the scenes book from someone who knows the stuff that is NOT made public. This book was simply about most of the lawsuits and court cases that Disney has been involved in. Everything in this book is public in some news story or court records. A good bit of work to compile this all, and it was still an interesting read.

    7. Interesting read.Contained a lot of information hidden by Disney. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to know more history of the Disney parks.

    8. Fun book to readSure, this book pales in comparison to Mouse Tales and it's sequel but it is still a fun read. Good for killing time.

    9. Interesting happenings at DisneyThere are a lot of things you don't want to know about Disney but this book sheds l u get on them.
