Walt Disney World by Laurie Flanneryhmm. not impressed with this one. while i appreciate the fact that laurie flannery clearly loves disney and did her best to pick some interesting facts about the World, i found myself a little bored by reading this.
most probably this is due to the fact that most of these facts i already knew and had heard multiple times over. but then some of the facts were just kind of...lacking in oomph i guess. as in, not interesting.
for example, im not super into measurements and she spent a great deal of time on how tall this thing is and what the diameter of that thing is and im just like 🤤.
i definitely learned like one or two cool things though, for example, to deter birds from coming into future world at epcot and being a nuisance with their nest building etc etc, disney plays a bird in distress call so that nearby birds will be less likely to want to make a home there. (side note: once i rescued a poor hurt bird that was on the line outside for spaceship earth. people were actually kicking at him and he couldnt really fly well. so i came in like a bat out of hell and he hopped onto my legs and i scooped him up, and with the help of a cast member, brought him backstage to a nice group of trees/bushes.)
all in all, not a bad read per se, but for me it was boring and repetitive since i knew most of this stuff already. so for this reason i wouldnt recommend this book to a disney aficionado, but then again i wouldnt recommend it to a newbie either because its kind of boring...idk. 👎🏼
