Geek's Thoughts: Most of us disneygeeks who have been following Disney on the web for years are familiar with Wade Samspon who has written regularly for mouseplanet. He recently removed the mask and revealed that he is Jim Korkis, a Disney Historian. Jim has assembled a great collection of stories in this book that cover many topics ranging from Walt the person to the films to the parks and everywhere in between. I really enjoyed reading this book and picking up many details that I had not read/heard before. Some of the stories are familiar but Jim has interviewed the principles over the years and been able to assemble some great nuggets to add to stories you may be vaguely familiar with.


In the parks section he goes back to Circarama of 1955 up through the recent Captain EO tribute along the way checking in on Tom Sawyer Island, Liberty Street, Storybook Land and more.

As with all Disney books I really wanted more. I could almost see each of his main sections on Walt, Films, Parks, and Other as their own books in a set. I am really hoping for more in the coming years, especially on the parks side since that is my primary area of interest.

One story that stood out to me that I really enjoyed reading about the Golden Oak Ranch and some of its history. I knew a little but this filled in some holes and was interesting to me.
