Geek's Thoughts: The format of this book, as with other Today in History books is to devote a page to each day of the year and on this page there are a couple paragraphs talking about one or two significant things that happened on that day. Then on the bottom of the page are factoids or trivia questions.

I found this to be great to skim through and look up some dates that I knew and some personal dates like my birthday, etc to see what happened on that day. The book covers all Disney topics, ranging from the parks to feature films to classic TV shows to attractions within the parks.


A couple interesting tidbits from this book. First off the cover photo.. it really drew my attention. It appears to be Mickey from around the time that Walt Disney World opened. The author of this book is Eve Zibart who wrote the unofficial guide to Walt Disney World for Grown-ups.

The only thing that stuck out as being a bit strange in the book is some of the placement of the factoids and trivia. On most pages it relates to the date but on some there is no connection that I can see. A great example is December 25th. The blurb for the day is about Old Yeller. The By the Numbers factoid has to do with the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland (September 12th, 2005 by the way) and the trivia question has to do with the Tower of Terror. So it just seemed like an odd mix of information. But the fact was interesting and the trivia question challenging.

One interesting use that pops to mind with this book is to use it as your countdown to your next Disney vacation. Each day as you countdown to your trip you can learn about something significant in Disney history.
