You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Disneyland In Detail

There's a new (or relatively) new book at Disneyland® Park that's all about Disneyland itself. Filled with fun facts and tantalizing tidbits about the Happiest Place on Earth and its neighbor Disney's California Adventure, Disneyland Challenge is also full of colorful photos of everyone's favorite attractions. Readers of this blog might be interested to know that this overflowing-with-information book was written by me—and I'm very proud to say this Disney Editions book is released under the D23 (The Official Community For Disney Fans) imprint. The D23 logo can be seen on the back cover pictured here. You can also see my byline in small print (always read the small print) on the copyright page—click on the image, or any image, for a larger view. If you are visiting Disneyland, please look for my book—in fact, ask for it by name, Disneyland Challenge by Jim Fanning. And if you won't be visiting Disneyland anytime soon you can call Disneyland Park's DeliverEars Service (800) 362-4533 and ask if they can send you this fun-filled book.

Hey Jim,
I just saw this book for the first time yesterday in the new Gallery on Main St. Your book shares a display unit with our new Tikis.

I've already learned a few things from the book that I didn't know before... For example, that guests could actually request to "wake up Jose" at the Tiki Room. Now that I know, I'm going to do it EVERY time!! :-)

Michael said...

Oh my - I didn't know that either. Now I really, really want to do that. I wonder if they'd let us on the east coast? And I wonder if I slipped Jose $20 he'd perform the original show instead?

Kevin Kidney said...

Michael, you can save your money. I've heard it said that Jose only works for birdseed.

Michael said...

Lucky I've been hoarding all these sunflower seeds for the upcoming robot apocalypse (after which they'll be the only recognized form of currency). Jose surely can't need too many; I hear he's a real featherweight.

Thanks everyone - enjoy the buffet, and be sure to tip your waitress.
