Browsing on Amazon one day, I saw they were advertising the book for pre-order. Even though it would be months away before it arrives, that didn't stop me from passing up on the opportunity
After months of waiting, the book finally arrived mid October.
As the book was delivered to those who pre-ordered, pictures from the book started to show up on social media.
Because this was going to be a book I would want to look at multiple times, I didn't want anything to damage it, even any kind of oils, dirt, or anything else from my hands and fingers that can damage the pages. So I waited until I got something for protection
I went on to Amazon and found some cheap gloves to order and waited a couple of days for them to be delivered.
The day finally came where I got the gloves and was able to tear the plastic off the Maps of the Disney Parks book.
Not as shiny any more with the plastic gone
Opening the front flaps of the book
An Image of Walt Disney showing what's to come to Disneyland that I had never seen before
How fun is it to see what Tokyo DisneySea might have looked like.
This image is going back all the way to 1992, nine years before Tokyo DisneySea (which turned out to be quite different) opened to the public.
Of course, that is just a small taste of what the book has to offer as there are still so many more pictures to look at.
I know when I was looking all pictures being displayed on the pages, I was taking my time looking at all the details.
Some of these images I have seen before, whether it be in other publications or on the internet, it's so handy to have them collected in one book that I can just hold in my hands and look at again and again.
This is a book that I would highly recommend if you love Disney, concept art, and history of the Disney Parks.
