Why should I buy the book?

Would you believe I’ve been working on this book for over 15 years. That’s when I wrote my first “Dispatch from Disneyland” for a USENET group about Disneyland. Since then, I’ve written tens of thousands of stories and articles about the company Walt Disney created, with most of them finding a home on The Disney Blog. If you’ve enjoyed my blog posts, videos, and other content, and want to help me continue improving The Disney Blog community this is a great way to do that. Your purchase of the Special Digital Edition is like a vote that says you want to see more from The Disney Blog.

If you were a supporter of the project on Kickerstarter, thank you. Check your email for a special message regarding delivery of your copy of the book. If you do not see anything, please drop me an email. If you were not a sponsor of the Kickstarter project, I hope you’ll buy the book for all the reasons listed above.

Can I give it as a gift?

Yes. After you complete your purchase, you will get an email with a link to download your copy of the Special Digital Edition. You may then email that link to the person you would like to send the gift to. It’s an almost instant process, which makes Dispatch from Disneyland perfect for any occasion, last minute or not.

Download a free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (or another PDF viewer) in the Play store. Before opening the file.

You can also upload the PDF to your My Books shelf in Google Play. While you can read the PDF, some of the functionality of a PDF is disabled, so you won’t be able to use the internal hyperlinks to navigate through the book.
