This week, on the WDW Radio Show, Lou and I discuss three books that look at design, architecture and Disney.
You can download the show here.
- Designing Disney’s Theme Parks: The Architecture of Reassurance by Karal Ann Marling
- Building a Dream: The Art of Disney Architecture by Beth Dunlop
- Designing Disney by John Hench
I reviewed Designing Disney almost a year ago. You can see the review here.
Don’t forget to e-mail Lou and tell him how awesome I am on his show!
Don’t forget to stop by our site and leave some Disney Geek love!

Looking forward to hearing this segment – I do love the book reviews! And I’ve been waiting for Designing Disney for ages…
Ohhh George!! You were simply wonderful on the show! Mesmerizing, engaging, and always, pure brilliance with every word you spoke. Your melodious voice is only surpassed by your charming good looks, witty personality and… Oh man… I can’t… no matter HOW big the check is… I just can’t do it anymore. Seriously, thanks again for coming on, George. Fun talking with you as always!!
Great segment on Disney Books this week. I’ll be looking for the one you talked about last. Let’s hope it makes it to Paperback. I have been reading a lot of different interviews and John Hench is always spoken of in the highest terms. I look forward to your next time on Lou’s show. Is there any room for a Disney literature Podcast. You could review a book a show and have a WDWToday length show. Just an idea.
Haven’t had a chance to hear the show yet, but I commend the book selection. All three are great additions to any Disney library.
Thanks so much for the segment. These three books are among my favorites.

George – great job on the show! All 3 of these books are fantastic and I completely agree that Hench’s is the standout among them. He is a genuis. Without him, there is little doubt in my mind that the Disney parks as we know them would be very different. And Building a Dream, while fantastic, is uncomfortably biased to Eisner period works.
Finally listened to this weeks show excellent work as always. I can see my paycheck disappearing and the book shelf becoming more crowded soon…
