It's a look at the park made by a man for his family to enjoy, and how it was taken over by a corporation interested in selling product to the masses. But besides this ugly story, there's moments of light that shine through, although David does degenerate into the darkest moments of Disney's history. He spends a lot of time rehashing employee stories about management and Disneyland guests that can be disturbing.

Koenig also covers the various accidents and deaths that have occurred throughout the years - and in most cases I was shocked at how guests could be so careless yet attempt to sue Disneyland for their resulting injuries. All in all this was a really enjoyable read - I learnt a lot about what it took to build the park, and while it is hilarious at times some of the content is serious and thought provoking. So if you like me have visited the parks so many times that you’re ready to take a peek behind the scenes you need to read.

I got the forbidden Mouse Tales: A Behind-the-Ears Look at Disneyland. This book is about all the not-so-happy accidents at Disneyland such as deaths, crime, schemes, and PROTESTS! I got a book called Disney: Who’s Who? Mainly because it has The Fox and the Hound characters in it because Disney never really adds those characters in! Then I got a Disney Doorables Nick Wilde figurine and I already have Judy but they didn’t include Nick in the blind bag! So I got him for Christmas! I also got a Funko (loose set) Mystery Minis of Nick and Judy because I’m obsessed with Zootopia now!

Interesting look at D. .Interesting look at Disneyland and definitely not authorized by the Disney company. The book starts off with the building of the park.

Interesting look at D. It talks about the original black and white swans that were used around the castle and that they in fact were mean and would try and bite people. There's a chapter devoted t violence and crime in the parks. who would think of gang fights in the happiest place on earth. Another chapter talks about bad accidents that happened at the park. Were people have been injured and a few examples of people actually being killed

The development of the feature animation department created a caste system at the Disney studio: lesser animators (and feature animators in-between assignments) were assigned to work on the short subjects, while animators higher in status at the studio worked on the features. A bitter union strike in mid-1941 resulted in an exodus of several animation professionals from the studio, from top-level animators such as Art Babbitt and Bill Tylta to artists more known for later works such as Frank Tashlin, John Hubley, Maurice Noble, and Walt Kelly.

I really enjoyed this book, I have always been a Disney fan and am always looking for interesting facts and things about Disney getting a look behind the walls or doors at Disney has always fascinated me. I really enjoyed this book and I keep it with my other Disney books that I have read, it was a great addition to my library. It's is always fascinating to read about others experiences and learn about things that happened there before you were even born this is a great collection of information a must have for the Disney fan.

As a lifelong Disneyland fan and a former Cast Member (1996-2005), I cannot recommend this book enough. It gives you tons of great history of the park, from the infamous to the scandalous, the hilarious to the momentous. It's not nearly big enough to encompass all of the park's amazing history, but for the information it does give you, it's worth it. Be warned, though - this book reveals a lot of information that is unbecoming of The Happiest Place on Earth. Author David Koenig covers events that are part of the park's history but don't mesh with the illusion of perfection, including murders, fights, riots, lawsuits, accidents, and after-hours shenanigans.

The author underwent years of research to make this book happen. Nearly all of it comes from newspaper clippings and public documents. Much of it also comes from first-hand Cast Member stories. Some of those stories are decades old and only tell one point of view. For that reason, some of what you read should be taken with a grain of salt, since memories fade or are altered for preservation. That doesn't mean they're fake, or that the information is any less interesting. If you enjoy scandal and notoriety, then this book will have you salivating. If you love Disneyland the way it is and don't want to know what goes into making the magic, then this book is not for you. If you do decide to read it (and I hope you do), then know now: once you start, you won't be able to stop.

This book is absolutely fascinating! If you've ever been to Disneyland and find that it still gets you excited when you think of going back, this book is for you.

There is so much interesting information. I thought I knew quite a bit about the Magic Kingdom. But, this book goes deeper behind the scenes. It exposes the good, the bad and the ugly. It is not a put down of the park. But, it does let you know from first hand interviews with former employees that it's had it's share of problems. This makes you appreciate all the hard work the Disney team does to make your day in the park seem "Magical".

Chapters like "Fatal Attractions" and "Tragic Kingdom" go into detail about those "down played" accidents and deaths. I remember hearing a little about some of them and wondering how things turned out. This book gives you the details, including the law suits which were filed.

Though I'm absolutely NOT a history enthusiast, I loved the history of Disneyland. Did you know that opening day was actually not so great? Do you remember the Flying Saucer ride and wonder why it disappeared? The answers are all here without the candy coating.

This book is the Special Golden Anniversary Edition. There are only 4,000 copies of this edition. This makes it a special collector's item for Disneyland's 50th Anniversary. I plan on buying the sequel book, too. It's hard to put this one down once you start. So, you better buy them both now so you don't have to wait for the next part like I am.

Mouse Tales by David Koenig is a well-researched look at the reality behind the mask or illusion created by Walt Disney. It's a look at the park made by a man for his family to enjoy, and how it was taken over by a corporation interested in selling product to the masses. But besides this ugly story, there's moments of light that shine through, although David does degenerate into the darkest moments of Disney's history. He spends a lot of time rehashing employee stories about management and Disneyland guests that can be disturbing. Perhaps David's biggest revelation is that Disneyland's response to medical emergencies is poor, very poor. It's still bad, and Disneyland needs to rewrite its policy. Should you read this book? If you're curious about Disney's real history, I'd say yes.
