Hey Main Streeters!

As I was walking through the vender room at the House of Mouse Expo in January, I found so many fun things! Jewelry, artwork, celebrities to meet, even sweet treats to try!

I came across a booth with a very pleasant guy sitting in it. In front of him I noticed some cool stickers and bookmarks.


As we chatted for a minute, I noticed the four books that were also on the table. I love to read books about Disney, so I thought I would treat myself to something new. I found out his name was Aaron H. Goldberg and he wrote all four books! I asked him which one would be the best to start with. He said it depended on what I was looking for. Info about the Disney brothers and how they got started, info about the parks, the movies, etc. Well, I am into all of it so I had to think hard about my purchase. He was telling me that they are all meant to be easy, fun reads and suggested I take one on the plane back to Minnesota. Then he told me he was offering a special if I wanted to go ahead and get all four. I decided to take him up on that and he signed and personalized all of them for me.

The next important decision I had to make was which one to take on the plane with me and which ones to pack in my suitcase with the rest of my expo treasures,

I chose to take Buying Disney’s World, The Story of How Florida Swampland Became Walt Disney World with me on the trip home. I was immediately hooked! It told the story of Walt Disney and how he came up with the idea for Walt Disney World and made it happen. I won’t spoil it too much, but he and his team came up with quite the elaborate plan!

If you are like me and looking for some fun new Disney reads, check out Aaron H. Goldberg.com to buy one of your own!

Check back here as I read through my pile of books and report back on my magical favorites!
