"Since I was on Disneyland property during construction starting in late 1954, and the continuing additions over the next 60 years, I thought I knew a lot about Disneyland.  Wrong!  While reading The Hidden Secrets & Stories of Disneyland, I was shocked at how much I never knew.  Almost every page contained details that I had never noticed before.  On a future visit I will probably have to carry this book along with me so I can be as informed as your readers." - Disney Legend Bob Gurr

 

"Having grown up in the shadows of Walt Disney and Roger Broggie, I was delighted to read this book. Even as a summer season Cast Member while in college in the early 1960s, I discovered details about Disneyland unearthed by Mike Fox that were new to me.  Well done!" - Michael Broggie, Walt Disney historian and founder of The Carolwood Society and Foundation - Dedicated to preserving the personal railroad legacy of Walt Disney.

 

"There are some secrets in this book you just won't find anywhere else.  It's well-researched and well-written, and I definitely recommend adding this volume to your Disney library." - Steve DeGaetano - Disneyland Railroad Historian - Author: The Disneyland Railroad - A Complete History in Words and Pictures

 

"You'll love the Hidden Secrets & Stories of Disneyland by Mike Fox - I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Disneyland." - ChipandCo.com
