This book is the second of two books: Disney Till You’re Dizzy: 1,001 Facts, Rumors, and Myths about Walt Disney World: Volume 1 and Disney Till You’re Dizzy: 1,001 Facts, Rumors, and Myths about Walt Disney World: Volume 2. I wrote them together, and they’re best read together, as in each volume presents different details about its topics, but they are fun to read separately as well.
I wrote these books for the Disney professionals and Disney rookies; for annual passholders, first-time visitors, and those who have never been to Walt Disney World; for readers young and old alike. There is complex and cool information about Walt Disney World and its attractions in these books, and there is also rich history, trivia, and even a few things to surprise even the most seasoned Disney expert.
When I was growing up, I always loved Disneyland. My brother and I loved it so much, a lot of our free time was spent watching a movie called A Day at Disneyland over and over again. Being as young as we were (probably 4 and 2 years old), we would spin circles around the room to try to re-create what it felt like to be on the rides. This was the birth of our phrase “Disney till you’re dizzy.” Life got more complicated when we were teenagers, but we still loved Disneyland. So we started researching Disney facts and stories (without the spinning this time). Years later I decided to write my first book, Disney Till You’re Dizzy: 1,001 Facts, Rumors, and Myths about the Disneyland Resort. This book is very much like the first one, except it focuses on Walt Disney World.
I know that Disney brings people happiness, even in difficult times. That is the goal of every book I write, to bring even a few moments of happiness into people’s lives through fun facts about the most magical places on earth.
Alexa Erekson was born in Henderson, Nevada, to a devout Mormon family. She discovered her love for Disney facts when she was a teenager. She realized that learning cool things about Disney helped her escape her trials even for just a little while.
At twenty, Alexa become ill with idiopathic gastroparesis, a disabling chronic illness. She had to quit her job and drop out of college. It was a difficult time; she felt worthless. Learning Disney facts became a refuge from the emotional toll of her illness.
One night, her husband suggested she compile some of her facts into a book. When she was skeptical, he told her to first try writing as many facts as she could that night and then see how she felt about it the next day. After just two hours, she had written down over 250 facts without research. Every day after that, she kept researching and fact checking, continuing to write down Disney facts until she reached over 1,000. Thus her first book, Disney Till You’re Dizzy: 1,001 Facts, Rumors, and Myths about the Disneyland Resort, was born.
Today she continues sharing her love for all things Disney on her YouTube channel, DisneyTillYoureDizzy. She hopes that the joy Disney has brought her will spread to others who need it through her books and YouTube channel.
The so-called "golf ball" just past the entrance to Epcot is irresistible to many morning park visitors who may not realize that the "ride" actually is the shortest and most entertaining lecture in world history they'll ever attend.

There's no cherry tree in Liberty Square that George Washington may or may not have chopped down, but most other aspects of our colonial heritage have been re-created for the enjoyment of observant guests who know where to look for the details.
