Wayback Weekend: Save 50% on your Purchase of Dispatch from Disneyland eBook


The very first parade I ever saw at Disneyland was the 1970 Fantasy on Parade. Of course, I was not even a year old yet. But I was there and my family took these photos, so it counts. I love how everyone is standing right in the street.

In honor of this week’s premiere of Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade at the Magic Kingdom, St. Patrick’s Day, and, last but not at all least, my mom’s birthday, I’m slicing 50% off the price of the special edition eBook of “Dispatch from Disneyland” through the holiday weekend*.

For just $5.00 you can have 29 touching stories and informative essays about the Happiest Place on Earth in a special PDF format which you can read on nearly any mobile device or your laptop or desktop computer. Print it out if you want, but read it digitally and the trees, and I, will thank you.

Announcing “Dispatch From Disneyland” New Book of Touching Stories and Essays From The Happiest Place on Earth by Author of The Disney Blog

February 28, 2014 (Anaheim, CA) – Dispatch From Disneyland is a collection of stories, essays, and interesting facts written for fans of any age who love any of Walt Disney’s magical theme parks, but don’t have the good fortune of visiting the park as often as they wish.

Inspired by the park that Walt built, Dispatch from Disneyland takes readers on a “you are there” emotional journey to Disneyland via the power of story. Each “dispatch” is meant to bring the reader to a place that reminds them of the magic they feel when at the park themselves.

“Dispatch From Disneyland: Stories and Essays From The Happiest Place on Earth” is available in Print, Kindle, and iPad friendly and mobile device special edition eBook.

The book’s author, John Frost, owns and writes The Disney Blog (, the first blog to cover the entirety of The Walt Disney Company, past and present. John’s grandfather joined Walt Disney’s team of Imagineers in 1954 and helped carve Disneyland out of Southern California Citrus Groves. John’s love for Disneyland sprouted from his family’s yearly road trips from Portland, Oregon to experience Walt’s park. When John thought about writing a book, Disneyland seemed the natural subject.

Dispatch from Disneyland is John’s love letter to The Happiest Place on Earth. The collection of short stories, essays, and interesting facts will make you laugh, cry, learn, and most of all wish you were at Disneyland right now.
