I purchased the “Mickey’s Walt Disney World Adventure” Little Golden Book that is a classic book from 1997 updated for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World. This is one of a number of Disney parks Little Golden Book titles (others are Haunted Mansion, its a small world, Jungle Cruise, Orange Bird, Space Mountain). Here is my review!
The central story of “Mickey’s Walt Disney World Adventure” is that Mickey is looking for his new drum major’s hat all over the Magic Kingdom (but mostly he and Minnie ride Walt Disney World attractions).
Most of “Mickey’s Walt Disney World Adventure” is from 1997. Even though the information for the book says that it has been updated to match current attractions, Mickey and Minnie ride the Grand Prix Raceway (which has been the Tomorrowland Speedway for like 25 years) and we see Buzzy as a character on the riverboat – and the attraction he was in, Cranium Command, closed about fifteen years ago at EPCOT. I’m not really sure why he is on the boat.
What is new in the book is Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Mickey and Minnie ride with Dopey and the rest of the Seven Dwarfs, and more of the new section of Fantasyland can be seen on the two pages.
“Mickey’s Walt Disney World Adventure” is a classic book, with a little new added to it. For the price point, it’s a nice addition to our bookshelf since we don’t have the original.
