This just in from Jim Korkis:

[Vault of Walt Volume 10: Final Edition brings to a close the best-selling decade-long series of books that showcased the rarely told and out-of-the-ordinary stories of Disney history that never appear in any other books.


The books are each divided into four distinct sections devoted to Walt Disney, Disney films, Disney theme parks and oddball niche material.   All of these tales are based on decades of research, dozens of exclusive interviews with people who worked at Disney and obscure, long out-of-print magazines and articles. 


These stories have helped to fill in many gaps in Disney history as well as being praised by Walt Disney’s oldest daughter, Diane Disney Miller.   Disney historian Jim Korkis has tried to squeeze in even more stories that usual for this final volume.


This particular edition highlights how a young Walt Disney survived a virus pandemic that took the lives of millions of Americans, the complete story of every project comedian Robin Williams did at the Walt Disney Company, how Walt Disney World handles the threat of hurricanes, and a detailed look behind the creation of Jessica Rabbit.


That’s only the beginning!  Stories about Walt’s personal adventures in Hawaii, the true story behind Disneyland’s Indian Village, a lengthy overview of Disney postage stamps and the behind-the-scenes information on films like Enchanted, Dick Tracy and Condorman as well as much, much more fill these pages to overflowing.


With the recent flood of Disney related books and the ever-increasing difficulty in finding and verifying obscure information, it is now an appropriate time to conclude this popular series of ten books that will all remain in print to inform and entertain Disney fans as well as provide valuable and accurate research material for future scholars.
