A man's experience and insight

There are a lot of details about the inner workings of the specific areas in Disneyland where the author worked. Humorous tidbits and insights a-plenty on cast members, visitors and the magical nature of Disney's dream land along with how the author attributes much of his later life to those experiences keep the book light and pleasant. The narrator is good and adds a touch of life to the author's words.
This brought back fond memories of the fun I had visiting Disneyland and I hope to be able to travel to the magic kingdom once again.

Too much of a personal memoir

There was just not enough Disneyland in this book. The author should have just gift-wrapped the manuscript and given it to his wife on their anniversary. Also, the performance was mundane, at best. Looks like it's time to wrote a book about my Club 33 experience and the time that Disneyland security thought that my wrapped birthday gift might be a bomb.
