Présentation de l'éditeur

Disney History at Its Best

No one knows Disney history, or tells it better, than Jim Korkis, and he’s back with a new set of 28 stories from his Vault of Walt. Whether it’s Disney films, Disney theme parks, or Walt himself, Jim’s stories will charm and delight Disney fans of all ages.

The best-selling Vault of Walt series has brought serious, but fun, Disney history to tens of thousands of readers. Now in its second volume, the series features former Disney cast member and master storyteller Jim Korkis’ home-spun, entertaining tales, from the early years of Walt Disney to the present.

Step inside the vault with Jim to hear about:

  • A ride through Epcot's Spaceship Earth for a closer look at graffiti, bare breasts, and evil twins
  • The bare-knuckles battle between Walt Disney and P.L. Travers over Mary Poppins
  • The real story of the Jungle Cruise, why Walt's plan for live animals was shot down, and how Walt once got cheated by an impatient skipper
  • The life-long hatred between Walt and Bugs Bunny creator Friz Freleng caused by a boil on Freleng's butt
  • How Roy O. Disney took over a demoralized company after his brother's death and built a fantasyland from swampland

Discover these and many other new tales of Disney history, as only Jim Korkis can tell them, in The Vault of Walt: Volume 2.

Then be sure to check ALL the volumes in The Vault of Walt!

HASH(0x93623798) étoiles sur 5 The Vault of Walt Volume 2 10 mars 2014
Par Daniel Butcher - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I honestly have not followed a lot of Jim Korkis' blog posts. I am still a print guy, so for me The Vault of Walt was pretty much all new material. And there were some essays that I still often reflect on when mulling Disney history. But with the original printing now out of print and the cheapest copies at the time of this posting starting in the mid $50 range, I just cannot recommend that edition. Now fortunately it does appear that the price has been dropping thanks to the printing of The Revised Vault of Walt. But the revised edition did not collect all of the original material. Could a second volume of this series make all of the original content available at an affordable price?

The Vault of Walt Volume 2: More Unofficial, Unauthorized, Uncensored Disney Stories Never Told by Jim Korkis continues in collecting his essays on Disney history. Like the earlier versions this book is broken into four sections; Walt Disney Stories, Disney Film Stories, Disney Park Stories, and Other Disney Stories. The essays are not connected and can be read out of order. Essays printed before include: "Santa Walt", "Blackbeard's Ghost", "Captain Eo", and "Golden Oak Ranch". New stories range from "Walt and NASA", "Secrets of the Santa Cartoons", "The Birth of the Disneyland Jungle Cruise", and "The Seven Snow Whites" which show the diversity of the included essays.

The Vault of Walt Volume 2 contains 15 new essays. And honestly some of these essays caught my interest just with their titles matching some of my own personal interests. I am a huge fan of Roy O. Disney so I enjoyed diving into "Roy O. Disney: The Forgotten Brother Who Built the Magic Kingdom" which does a great job of showing the elder brother's role in getting the Florida resort built. And "Walt's Chicago" provides background to Walt Disney's relationship with his birthplace. And of course in the wake of Saving Mr. Banks the essay "Mary Poppins: Walt Disney and P.L. Travers" delves into the story of Disney courting Travers and her opinion of the finished Mary Poppins.

The stories themselves are generally short and clear. They are easy to read and in many cases discuss a piece of Disney history not normally touched on. It would be an easy book to enjoy on a number of train rides where you stop and start the text over and over again (which may be the way I read this volume). The majority do read like detailed blogs, and those who have read them before may want more new content. But I am someone who has only read these tales in the print format. Yes, in the electronic age I was first exposed to these in a physical form.

Let's look at the tale of the tape though. There are two essays in the original volumes that I cannot find reprinted in The Revised Vault of Walt and The Vault of Walt Volume 2. The first essay, "Song of the South Premiere" has likely not been reproduced since Korkis now has in print Who's Afraid of the Song of the South which includes a chapter on the premiere. The second essay, "Mickey Mouse Theater of the Air", is a highly interesting essay on Mickey Mouse in the era of old time radio. So for half the price of the original volume, you can buy The Revised Vault of Walt and The Vault of Walt Volume 2 and lose one essay with the trade off of 20 new ones. Or one can buy the two Kindle versions for a fifth of the original's current used price. So I think it is obvious the Between Books recommendation is to buy the two books instead of tracking down a used copy of the original.

Fans of Jim Korkis will want The Vault of Walt Volume 2 in their collection. Serious Disney fans will want this volume for the unique content found in its pages. And those more casual Disney fans can find plenty of enjoyment within. And best of all, nearly all of the originally printed essays can be purchased for a reasonable price!

HASH(0x93623690) étoiles sur 5 One of the best Disney boosk ever written 3 juin 2014
Par Bryan Fear - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Books about Disney tend to fall into two basic categories, pro-Walt or anto-Walt and I'm glad there's not too many of those. Jim's books have always strove to just research the facts and report the truth, and the truth is unsurprisingly 99% pro-Walt with very little negative to really say about the man.

The writing style here is well structured and moves along quickly, each segment being broken into easy-to-read bits. Jim's research is taken either from direct interviews with the people involved or from archives making it the single most factual and truthful books out there. If you hate Walt and are sharpening your teeth in the hopes of learning some dirty secrets that support the rumors you've heard, you may be disappointed to find out what a warm and genuine man he was. Nonetheless when it comes time to admit there were some grumpy moments in Walt's life, you'll find the truth isn't biased and neither are Jim's books.

Out of the dozens of Disney biographies and auto-biographies that I've read, there are no finer Disney books than those written by Jim Korkis. The fact that so many people close to Walt would agree to speak to Jim about these moments in time speaks volumes of the author's character. A must-read.

Jim Korkis continues to amaze! He has such a wealth of information about Disney and everything connected with it. Also his writing is good. Each story is told in a way to entertain as well as inform. I would recommend his books to anyone who has enjoyed or continues to enjoy the Happiest Place on Earth! Plus they make super gifts!

HASH(0x936217a4) étoiles sur 5 Another Winner from Jim Korkis, Disney Historian 13 octobre 2013
Par Jerry Edwards - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I look forward to every Jim Korkis book on Disney. This book continues Jim's previous winning streak of the previous Disney books from the past few years. I enjoy that Jim's book is separated into different subject sections - Walt Disney Stories, Disney Film Stories, Disney Park Stories, and Other Disney Stories. I found something to enjoy in every story that Jim shares in this book. I also enjoyed reading some new stories I had never heard before, even though I'm a long-time Disney history buff. If you enjoyed the previous books Vault Of Disney, Who's Afraid Of Song of the South?, and the Revised Vault of Walt, then you will also enjoy this book. If you haven't read those previous three books, you're missing a great deal of info and enjoyment in the stories Jim shares about Disney history. Jim brings together a love for Walt Disney and the Disney Company creators over the years, but he is not restricted to just hero worship. He shares some of the low points in Disney history, but avoids using a poisen pen to write such stories. I don't know of any other Disney author that shares his respect and love for Disney history and also shares the weaknesses without being prejudiced about it. Anyone who has interest in Walt Disney, the Disney films and parks, and all things Disney would get a great deal of info and enjoyment out of reading the stories in this book. I much enjoyed reading this book and look forward to re-reading this book and the other Disney books by Jim. Now I can also start hoping for another volume of the Vault of Walt in a year or so. I can barely contain my impatience for Volume 3.

While many a Disney fan reading Vault of Walt may have heard the stories that Jim told in that book, I for one and I would think many a Disney fan will be entertained by the new stories (many I had never heard) in Vault of Walt - Volume 2. Jim's writing style makes for an enjoyable and quick read. I cannot recommend this book enough to any Disney fan.
