Geek's Thoughts: "Dispatch from Disneyland" is a compilation of pieces written by John Frost. That name may ring a bell. He was originally a contributor to LaughingPlace.com and then started his own site TheDisneyBlog.com so many of you may have read some of these pieces over the years. The stories in the book were originally published between 1998 and 2003. The versions in the book received slight updates but are still in the original form for the most part.

I always enjoy reading about otherís experiences at the park and John has compiles some great pieces to really capture what is special about Disneyland for many of us who enjoy the park. His stories sparked quite a few memories of visits to the parks. Some of the stories will leave you on the verge of tears because of their sincerity and heart.


Even though these came from the web there is still something different about seeing them in print. If you are looking for some great stories/memories from the parks I would recommend checking out "Dispatch from Disneyland". It is really a quick read and due to the nature of the self contained stories/essays it really lends itself to reading on the go since you can spend a few minutes and read a dispatch or essay then come back at another time and read another.

The book contains three sections. First up are dispatches, short stories from the parks. There are 17 of them covering a wide range of topics. The four that stood out to me - "The Day it Snowed at Disneyland", "The Flag Ceremony" "Esmeralda", or a must read "The Fireworks Spot". The second section contains 8 longer essays. The final 4 are addenda items. The last section features a chronology of articles which I would have found helpful as I read thought to put the story into proper context/time.
