Not sure what is with all of the negative reviews People I guess went in assuming the book was about something it s not Personally, I couldn t put this book down and read it in one day Fascinating account of how Walt Disney World came to be from the idea to scouting land to the spy like secrecy to purchase land to legal stuff If you are a Disney fan or just enjoy reading about some intense project management, check this one out for sure.

After The Pixar Touch The Making of a Company, I decided to read a trilogy about theme park design, and stopped at 31 Months in Japan The Building of a Theme Park, Theme Park Design Behind The Scenes With An Engineer, and Project Future The Inside Story Behind the Creation of Disney World Theme parks are large scale parks on a given grand topic, such as the entire world of Disney characters in Disneyland or everything aquatic in Waterworld such a park can easily attract ten million visitors year [...]

If you re interested in the genesis of the Disney theme park idea, the subterfuge and misdirection involved in the land purchases for Disney World, and how the company got around Florida property rules and restrictions through legal classifications, this book is for you If you re interested in flying elephants or even Imagineers, you re better off with something else.There is a certain brand of Disney Geek that will be absolutely enthralled with this book, but others will find it rather dry I pu [...]

This is a legal history of the actions and events that allowed the Disney Co To make WDW so drastically different from Disneyland At times, it s dry and unless you re an attorney or have a very legal mind, it s probably best to skim some parts But I found it overall very interesting to learn the of the strategic path they took to create exactly what they wanted For any Disney fan, it s probably super interesting.

This is a land development Ph.D thesis If you re interested in the regulatory and legal challenges of building an amusement park, enter through the book s gates with a joyous heart to your own Happiest Place on Earth If you re looking for any information on Disney, Disney World or the actual engineering Imagineering design philosophy anything of amusement parks, get a ticket for a different ride.

While this may have read like stereo instructions, it definitely provided all of the facts that one could be looking for about the creation and execution of Disneyworld If you re interested in the subject, this is an awesome book especially if you re writing a paper or doing research otherwise i would probably pass unless you re like me and just love random facts like it was almost in MI.

Very geeky and not really for casual Disney Fans as it is a bit text booky Hardcore people who get into the nuts bolts of it all will find it fascinating.

I ve read many books about Disney in my life, so I thought I had a pretty good idea about what I was getting myself into The main reason I wanted to read this book was because I wanted to learn facts and hear stories that I had never heard before Project Future undoubtedly is a good, solid, readable book However, I do believe that this book also has a very select audience This book isn t really meant for a fan of Disney who just wants to learn about Disney World This book gets very in depth into [...]

If you want an entertaining story about the creation of the biggest vacation destination in the world, you will be sorely disappointed Unless you want an essay like story of Florida land and municipal management regulations in the mid 60s, don t bother.

Project Future provides a concise, readable introduction to the legal and entrepreneurial history behind the creation of the Walt Disney World Resort The book is a breezy 178 pages in length, and the author acknowledges the deliberately limited scope of such a volume My goal, he writes, was to create an interesting book that would, whether relaxing on the beach, flying in a plane to Disney World, or anywhere else, provide the reader with a look at how the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort ca [...]

I had heard an interview with the author on the WDW Radio podcast, and was fairly well prepared about what the content would be like I knew that this was going to be a fact based book, which used primary sources for its content.Overall the book is well written and a very easy read At 204 official pages, it doesn t take long to get through all of the content I did feel as if some details and content were repeatedly presented as new content These repeats caused it to feel a little jarring and not [...]

There was a lot of good background on the scouting Disney employees did in order to select their Florida location for Disney World, and equally good information on the secret real estate maneuvers they undertook to purchase the land However, I had hoped for information on how the Reedy Creek Improvement District and its board operate to govern WDW That is an ongoing success story that I wanted insight into Sadly, I didn t get it.

I had higher hopes for this book It reads like a legal research paper Very dry and factual, but feels like it s missing details that do not pertain to the story that the author wants to present Very interesting how Disney was able to pull off covert land purchases of this magnitude without everyone knowing.

OK Good for Disney World nerds like myself A bit dry and heavy on the details Also, written by a journalist, so it reads like its written at a fifth grade reading level While that isn t a horrible thing, it also doesn t make for super interesting reading Definitely had a slew of interesting tidbits that I hadn t heard elsewhere.

Anyone hoping for the construction of Disney World will be disappointed This is about the legal side of things How Disney managed to secretly buy all the land for the World It was interesting but I was hoping for how they started building Why some rides made it and others didn t etc However I am very glad that Florida was picked 3 Disney World

An interesting read if you re really, really into the history behind the scenes aspects of Walt Disney World, especially from the legal viewpoint The author did a good job of taking very dry material and injecting life into it tho it s still probably of a reference book than a leisure read.

Interesting though sadly much dry then I had hoped There wasn t much in here I didn t already know from other books such as Florida s Disney World Promises and Problems The book just basically listed events without any commentary or storytelling.

Wow, this book was SPECTACULARLY boring I expected something a little compelling than paragraph after paragraph of real estate transactions and legislation, but that s pretty much what this was.

The only book I can find dealing with the legal wrangling of the entire Disney development Also written pretty well, not too much heavy legal mumbo jumbo for what could have been a law school case study.

An interesting story which describes the making of Disneyworld, loaded with interesting facts about the politics of locating the parks in Orlando And a quick read But not necessarily one I would recommend unless you had a specific interest in the subject.

This book has good info, but it could have been presented better The writing seemed very disjointed to me there was a lack of flow to the book I would have appreciated a complete chronological telling of the story instead.

NOT what I was hoping for I wanted to read tales of breaking soil, installing rides, the Disney side of things This was long, wordy book on legislatures, law codes, and land acquisitions The last 2 pages sum up the entire book in a timeline Self proclaimed Disniac, NOT a fan.

This is a very dry book, and took me quite some time to get through Don t get me wrong, it is interesting, but at least to me, not a quick read This is a nuts and bolts as to the process of the creation of Disney World rather than the magical read many might think it is.

More the story of acquiring the land and getting the unique rights to build and operate DisneyWorld Super technical LOTS of information on draining land and municipal steps but interesting nonetheless.

This is a heavy book when it comes to the land dealings, political maneuvers, and legal background of what it took to get Disney World in Orlando Florida Yet I think this book is a must for any hardcore Disney World fan Great insight and backstory that I ve never read anywhere else.
