Your E-Ticket to Ride

Every ride, every show, every attraction at Walt Disney World has a "backstory." Some of it you can glean from details left by the Imagineers, but much you can't. Why get only half the magic? Now you can have it all...

The most important (and FUN) part of any Disney vacation is riding the attractions! Walt Disney World has more than 100 different attractions that range from classic hub-and-spoke carnival attractions to advanced motion simulators that are on the very cutting-edge of theme park technology.

Even though attractions play a big part of every Walt Disney World vacation, most guidebooks only provide a few short lines of information about each experience. That is where this book comes in. Through research, interviews, and thousands of rides, Disney historian Christopher Smith has uncovered everything there is to know about Walt Disney World attractions, from heavy hitters like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Avatar: Flight of Passage to the attractions you visit when the lines are too long everywhere else.

  • A complete walk-through of each attraction experience and queue.
  • A description of each attraction’s ride vehicle and the boarding process for guests (including those in wheelchairs or ECVs).
  • A listing of disability-related services available at each attraction.
  • Fun “magical details” about each attraction.
  • Touring strategies on how to best experience each attraction, including when to visit and which seats provide best views.

Whether you’re planning your next vacation to Walt Disney World, or you just want to learn new fun information about the attractions until you’re there again in person, Christopher Smith's Attraction Guide is your perpetual FastPass+ to the most magical place on earth.

We're always in the market for new authors with great ideas. Or great authors with new ideas. Whichever type of author you are, we'd be happy to discuss your book. Before you contact us, however, please make sure you can answer "yes" to these threshold questions:

Is It Right for Us?

We specialize in books that have some connection to Disney or theme parks. Disney, of course, has become a broad topic, and encompasses not just theme parks and films but comic books, animation, and a big chunk of pop culture. Your book should fit into one (or more) of those broad categories.

Is It Going to Make Money?

There's never a guarantee that any book will make money, but certain types of books are less likely to do so than others. They include: hardcovers, books with color photos, and books that go on forever ("forever" as in 400+ pages). We won't automatically turn down these types of books, but you'll have to be a really good salesman to convince us.

Are You Great to Work With?

Writing books and publishing books should be fun. The last thing you want, and the last thing we want, is a contentious relationship. We work with authors who share our philosophy of no drama and zero attitude, and the desire for a respectful, realistic, mutually beneficial partnership.
