New Imagineering Book " A Behind the Dreams Look at Making MORE Magic Real " to be released this fall !



I have a great news for all of you, Imagineering super-fans: Remember the great book "Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making More Magic Real" ( picture above) ? Well, on November 3 a sequel will be published by Disney Editions and the title of the new book is almost the same, except that the word "more" has been added.

No image of the book cover is available yet - that's why i used the one of the first book - but "Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making MORE Magic Real" will be a 192 pages hardcover edition and here is the description released by Disney Editions:

"How can you make dreams come true? Or transform a fantasy into a colorful, exciting world that visitors can move through, touch, and enjoy? Such fabulous work is the daily business of Walt Disney's Imagineers, a core group of creative and highly skilled professional wizards who combine imagination with engineering to create the reality of dreams that are the Disney theme parks.

In this sequel to the bestselling Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making the Magic Real, the Imagineers serve up another dose of magic with an even closer look at who they are, what they do, and how they do it, illuminating their theories and explaining what tools they use, and where and how they use them. Contained within this deluxe tome are rough drawings, conceptual models, and behind-the-scenes stories showcasing Disney's newest attractions and innovations from the inside out. There's also an exclusive peek into the Research and Development Lab to see what new magic will soon be appearing.

The Imagineers will tell their own stories, as well-how they got there, what they do on a daily basis, what they show their friends in the parks, and how you can learn what it takes to become an Imagineer.

Presented in a large, lavish format, this book is sure to be a must-have for every Disney collector."

You bet it's gonna be a must-have for Disney collectors! A new imagineering book designed by Imagineers means more great artwork, models pictures, and as they say, more behind-the-scenes stories. In two words: all what we are dreaming to see and know about!

And the good news is that the book is already available for pre-order on Amazon.com! Even better the pre-order price is $37.80 - instead of $60 which will be its normal price once released. I have added the book in the Disney and more Amazon Store where you can order it directly. You will find it HERE at the top left.

Can't 'til November to read this book!

I don't even have the first one.
Thank's for the information.
I would love to learn more about the WDI work on the american disney parks and the haunted mansion behind the scenes look, so this look's like a great source for that.
It will be a great present for myself :)

Good news.

Hope this book will give the cynics/nay-sayers/change-haters a much-needed change of heart and make them feel bad about being so insultive of all the most recent Disney park changes, additions, etc. and learn to start showing more gratitude towards them and stop being the ungrateful twits that they've become!

@ Anonymous: Gratitude, ungrateful? We are talking about a *business* here, Disney charges high prices for their products, so people have every right to complain if the product sucks.
