Yesterday evening I received a review copy of the book A Portrait of Walt Disney World which will be officially released tomorrow. Written by my friends Kevin Kern, Tim O'Day, and Steven Vagnini, this huge volume is definitely a must-have and will probably become one of the very best Disney books of the year, along with Jim Cora's autobiography, the Claude Coats biography and Marcy Smother's Walt's Disneyland.
At first glance, the balance of illustrations and text is excellent and there seems to be a very large amount of photographs and pieces of artwork that we had not seen until now in book form.
Knowing how great Kevin Kern, Tim O'Day, and Steven Vagnini are on the historical angle, I am expecting that the text will be full of fun surprises.
I can't wait to start reading. In the meantime, you all know what one of your gifts should be this holiday season.
