This book update is fairly eclectic and contains a duplicate title already in my library. When your book collection hits over 330 titles, it is difficult to keep from purchasing a few duplicates every once in a while. A lot of times, though, extra copies can be a good thing, especially when a spine breaks.
I do have multiple versions of the Disneyland Pictorial Souvenir, as any good Disneyland historian should. It is always fun to compare the guides and see how Disney handle changes in the parks and closures of attractions. I really enjoy seeing how Disney publicity evolved over the years. Most of the earlier guides (pre-1990) are less staged than their contemporary counterparts. It is also apparent when Disney uses the same shot across decades.
One of my all-time favorite Walt Disney World books is listed at the bottom of this post. Walt Disney World: The First Decade is a must-have for anyone who has ever visited Walt Disney World. You can read my review here. I think I have three copies of it, but I am always up for one more!
