Walt Disney's Disneyland

0 Voted

Chris Nichols’ Walt Disney’s Disneyland is a book that celebrates the history and cultural phenomenon of one of the United States’ most famous attractions: Disneyland. The book traces the history of the theme park, from Walt Disney’s earliest ideas to the place we see and experience today, built on what used to be nothing more than a dusty tract of orange groves.


Nichols’ level of research is extensive, giving information on aspects of the park that have never been published before, such as details of the iconic Mickey Mouse balloon that was created a decade before the park itself. Amongst all the details are never before seen photos of Disneyland in construction, as well as a whole host of other clear, colour pictures printed on high quality gloss paper.


The book is split into three sections, beginning with “Walt’s Dream” covering the early stages of development, “The Park Comes to Life” following the years 1955 through to 1963, and “The Vision Continues” that takes the reader to the present day and a look towards what the future holds for the Disney brand of theme parks.


Walt Disney’s Disneyland adds plenty of new information on the topic, and serves as a comprehensive look into the history of the park, from the first sketches to current plans for the upcoming Star Wars land. However, what the book lacks is details of Walt Disney himself, focusing more on the park and its history rather than the man behind it. Therefore, if you are looking for biography type book then this is not it.


It is also very much a coffee table book, rather than something you would carry around with you on your travels. With 328 pages in total, and high quality paper to go with it, it is not something light that can be transported in a backpack with ease, meaning you will have to leave this one at home.

  • High level of research adds never before seen details on the history of the park
  • Printed on high quality gloss paper with lots of clear images throughout
  • Not good for finding out information on Walt Disney himself
  • Large size of book means it cannot be easily transported

Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.


Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.


What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
