Walt Disney World is an American theme park. If it had a color palette, it would be red, white, and blue. As you wander through Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and even Animal Kingdom, take this book as your guide to spotting the apple pie behind the animatronics.
Walt Disney made no secret of his patriotism. He said once, "If you could see close in my eyes, the American flag is waving in both of them."
In Walt Disney World, American history is writ both large and small, and like the trash cans, the next lesson in liberty is never more than thirty feet away.
Brittany DiCologero's unique guide will tell you nothing about how long you'll wait for an attraction or how to save money on dinner or even how to find your next Hidden Mickey. But it will tell you everything you need to know about how to find America at Walt Disney World.
From Liberty Square and the American Adventure to the 50s Prime Time Cafe and DinoLand U.S.A., experience America at its best, Disney style.
