Josh is a hilarious &  knowledgeable guy! He is full of all kinds of Disney fun facts!

His book is as much a fun facts books as it is a guide book, and best of all he live close to Disneyland so he can give you up to date information on all things Disneyland!

Book Description:

Never before has there been such a complete DISNEYLAND guide book for kids (and parents) of all ages. Whether it’s your first time or your family’s annual trip, this vacation guide has it all!

With over a thousand exciting “fun facts” in this one-of-a-kind Discovering the Magic Kingdom: An Unofficial Disneyland Vacation Guide , the learning never stops. Packed with over 100 photos, trivia, a scavenger hunt, ways to help cut park expenses and so much more, you’ll never leave for Disneyland without it.

About the Author: (From Author’s site):

First time published author, Joshua Shaffer, has spent his adult life frequenting Disneyland.

One year while on a Disney vacation, it struck him that he should write an all inclusive book compiling every bit of information into one vacation guide that cannot be found anywhere else. It started with that simple notion and has evolved into this final work.

As a hobby he spends much of his spare time researching and investigating to find out the facts not just the rumors on a variety of topics. Joshua has been a cartoonist and artist since the age of ten.

  1. I love your gift ideas. These will come in handy any time of year. Thanks for including the Beads for Life. I love being able to help while giving (or buying for myself!)

  2. I was going to say the same thing, wish I had seen this a ways back. But definitely have birthdays and other fun reasons to celebrate coming soon!
