My son loves Mickey, where can I find him at Disney World?
Daisy is my favorite character, where can I see all the Daisy stuff?
I want to honor Walt Disney. Can I see everything Walt in one day?
Do these questions sound familiar? If yes, you’re reading the right guide.
Whenever people ask me to help them with planning their Disney World vacation, the most common questions I get are: 1. Should I stay on property? (Yes; see my first book, The Not-So-Evil Stepmother.) 2. Where should I eat? (Lots of places; see my second book, Tasting the Magic.) And 3. How do I find Mickey, Toy Story, Ariel, [insert your favorite movie or character’s name]? That’s what this book is about.
A Character Meet & Greet should be on your list, of course, and will be in this guide. Also in this guide are many other magical experiences to add to your list of ways to see your favorite story come alive. When you are at Disney Parks, you get to go inside the stories—from rides and restaurants that feel like you are in the movie, to resorts with movie-themed rooms, to the hidden magic the Imagineers have sprinkled in everything from candy apples to wallpaper.
Character Meet & Greets are fun. There are hugs, autographs, and stories of evil stepmothers and sea witches. But there is so much more. How about singing along with your favorite character in a show? Or seeing a statue of them that is so big you can climb on it? Or making a cake that resembles a certain famous Mouse? This guide will tell you everywhere to experience the movies and characters you love including:
My hope is this book will be like having a personal tour guide take you around Walt Disney World and help you see your favorite Disney stories come alive.
Trisha Daab is an author, mom/not-so-evil stepmom, and food lover. She is the author of multiple books about Disney World: Tasting the Magic from A-Z: The Best Food and Beverages at Walt Disney World; The Not-So-Evil Stepmother in the Most Magical Place on Earth: Planning Your Walt Disney World Family Vacation; and a series of guides called The Story Comes Alive that help people experience their favorite Disney movies and characters, often in unexpected ways, at Walt Disney World.
Trisha has been visiting Disney since the 1980s, when she took first trip at 3 years old. (We won’t talk about the VERY embarrassing picture of Trisha, in all of her coke-bottle- glasses-and-90’s-hair glory, posing with Chewbacca, the only character whose hair could compete.)
Writing books about Disney World has been the perfect excuse to visit the parks more frequently, eat a lot of Disney food, and get new pictures with Chewy.
According to her sons and husband, she takes altogether too many pictures at Disney.
