soooooo glad i did. disneyphiles, armchair imagineers and theme park design buffs--buy this book, and buy it NOW.
the design is unbelievably lavish and jam-packed with never (i have every book ever written about the disney parks, and i mean NEVER) before seen photographs and concept art. there were maybe only about ten or so images in the entire 192 page volume i recognized. the layout style and writing tone (cute puns for subheads, etc) are very consistent with the original book, and even the form factor is the same, making it a perfect companion up on your shelf.
since the first volume came out in 1996, we've seen the openings of animal kingdom, tokyo disneysea, california adventure, disney studios paris and now hong kong disneyland. as such, this new book focuses on pretty much 1983 to the present. earlier works are presented only in limited nostalgic contexts, but even then, they try to use art that wasn't in the first book. and from the looks of things, they were adding content right up until the publisher deadline, because there is a lot of "blue sky" material from DCA's current billion-dollar makeover.
the most rewarding goodies, however, are the numerous multi-page gatefolds and "mini" content pockets scattered throughout the text. they are all thoughtfully covered with tissue sheets to prevent damage during shipping, so just carefully remove those when you unwrap the book and enjoy. i know disney fans hate spoilers, so i won't even hint at what these special bits contain--but know that disney put extra love and care (and added expense) into designing a book that is worth every penny you'll pay for the (discounted) amazon price.
i loved the first book, and this second one is truly a knockout. can't wait to read it cover to cover, captions and all.
*How they remade and updated classic attractions like the Haunted Mansion in 2007 and It's a Small World.
*Adapting favorite attractions for oversea audiences. For example, because "The Twilight Zone" isn't big in Japan, the Tower of Terror for Tokyo Disneyland had to have a completely different story.
*The directors of "The Little Mermaid" movie working with the Imagineers on bringing a ride based on the film to life.
*The rules of Imagineering, showing that, despite what detractors say, they always have the guests in mind when they come up with stuff.
There's also great looks at what to expect with the redo of California Adventure and "Cars Land," the new Fantasyland, Hong Kong Disneyland attractions and more. For any fan of Disney, this is a must-have volume that makes what Imagineers do all the more fantastic and impressive.
I read the first Imagineering book several years ago, and always thought with the advancements and new attractions in place, there should be another. Well Uncle Walt's minions have answered the call. I have the first Imagineering book in soft cover, but this tome is an imposing 10.25" x 13.25" hardcover coffee table book, 200 pages of gorgeous Disney eye candy.
From a transparent blueprint overlay on a picture of Cindy's Castle, to a couple of booklets pasted to some pages (ala Disney Treasures, but not as artifact heavy), to several fold out pages, it keeps the kid in you fiddling with the book while looking at all the pictures. You can always read the text later. It's Disney Imagineering showing off their best stuff.
The first book covered a lot of the history of the parks. That covered, this one is more attractions, future plans and the act of being an Imagineer. It won't give you everything you want to know, but it gives enough to make you smile. I hope we won't have to wait over a decade for the next volume...
Highly recommended for the Disney Parks fan. (All of them, from Paris to Tokyo, not only the American parks.) Less so for the cruise people, but Disney Cruise is in the book too.
