    Disneyland, inside story by Randy Bright??

    I was just curious if anyone knows of this book? It's a HUGE hardback book on Disneyland written in 1987. There is a picture of my mother in the book, taken when she was about 10 years old (the year Disneyland opened). I used to check the book out of the library when I was a kid all the time but the library no longer has it. I'm trying to track down a copy (that is NOT going to cost me over $100 like I've found on Amazon and ebay in the past) and am just curious if anyone has ever even heard of the book.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure what sites to look on, other then Amazon. I've never used Bookfinder. Good to know it's out there!

    Had you ever heard of the book?

    This is one of the best books about Disneyland. The photography is terrific. I spent years looking for it and eventually found an immaculate copy. It was in such good condition that it is now the most expensive book in my collection.

    Another book to not miss is The Nickel Tour by Bruce Gordon and David Mumford.

    Good luck with your search.

    I agree that it is an excellent book. As far as I'm aware, it's not currently in print, so used book sources will likely be your best bet. As a frame of reference, I purchased mine 4 years ago in 2004 via ebay and it was $65. I'd suggest setting up an automatic search in ebay for "disneyland inside story", looking in both auction title and description, that will email you when something is listed. Sometimes, with patience, you can find a good deal.

    Good luck!

    I got this book when it first came out. To this day, it's still my all time favorite Disneyland reference book, Nickel Tour being second. Since I originally paid (as I recall) $65 for Nickel Tour, I believe Randy Bright's book is totally worth the $78 bucks.

    Randy Bright died not long after the book was published. It's really too bad that it can't be reprinted and sold at the park. It's a must have for any Disneylander.

    VF, yes I know the book well as I have had it since it was new. Still probably the best book on the Park I can think of. How cool that you have a relative in it!
