'Stories from a Theme Park Insider' now available in paperback

Published: April 28, 2012 at 2:35 PM

Don't have a Kindle? Or a Nook? Or an iPad? No problem! Our popular eBook of Disney cast member stories - "Stories from a Theme Park Insider" - is now available in paperback.

Stories from a Theme Park InsiderReaders have called Stories from a Theme Park Insider "a must read for Disney fans," and "a great book, I was laughing and smiling through the whole thing."

Despite the title, these aren't "stories" in any formal sense - they're short scenes, incidents, vignettes, and gags. They're the quick anecdotes that cast members tell each other in a break room (or bar) after their shifts for a laugh. They're silly, funny, frustrating, and even sometimes touching.

Most of all, I hope that you find them entertaining.

Many readers asked for a paperback edition since we first offered the eBook last year, and I've found an affordable way to get them printed, so the paperback version is now on sale at for just $7.99. (The Kindle eBook edition remains $2.99.) For those of you who have bought the eBook, the paperback edition makes a fun gift for any other theme park fan, and I've added an extra story exclusively for the paperback edition, as well.

The paperback version also is available through local bookstores, so if you don't want to shop at Amazon, just ask for it at your local bookstore, and they should be able to order a copy for you.

Now you don't have to put down "Stories from a Theme Park Insider" during takeoff and landing on your next flight to Orlando, or face getting busted on the runway like Alec Baldwin. Just order the paperback copy! ;^)

Seriously, though, thank you to all the readers who have supported the book and the website, and I hope that the paperback edition will help attract more fans into the Theme Park Insider community. Thank you for helping to spread the word.

Stories from a Theme Park Insider is $7.99 in paperback and $2.99 in eBook format, both from
