As an author, you ROCK, Kevin! "Yee reads" are destined to become classics in their own "write"". I plan to purchase the collection at some point in the future.
101 Things You Never New About Walt Disney World promises to be be an intriguing read. WDW certainly has an interesting if not provocative history of it's own. How fun it would be to find out about tributary remnants of former attractions that have been incorporated into popular new rides and shows. Once again, great job.
Between The Disneyland Hotel book and Tales From the Laughing Place, Issue #3, the latter does not interest me in the least - although I am certain this series is not without it's fans. A chronological account, by decade, of the Disneyland Hotel would be fascinating indeed. The story of it's original owners, the Wrather family, is a savory nugate/golden nugget.

“The press [should be] a watchdog. Not an attack dog. Not a lapdog. A watchdog. Now, a watchdog can't be right all the time. He doesn't bark only when he sees or smells something that's dangerous. A good watchdog barks at things that are suspicious.” – Dan Rather
I was quite disappointed when the Disney Magazine announced the final issue, but was happy to see someone take over publication of some sort of Disney-related periodical.
Tales From The Laughing Place is a good quality magazine but there are a few things that definitely need to change:
1. Print quality and paper makes the magazine awfully expensive at only four issues per year. Reduce the quality of the paper and put more money into more pages and more articles.
2. Increase the font size. Trying to read some of the articles is very difficult with the intense imagery behind it.
3. Imagery! Reduce the amount of photos. Full blazing color pages with little text does not make a good publication. I look for quality in the writing as well as the layout of the pages. Sorry, this comes from the desktop publisher in me!
Don't get me wrong, I think Tales From The Laughing Place is a good publication and I will continue to subscribe....but now it is time to start improving on something that is already great!
Yes...I know...everyone will think of me and want to hit me over the head!
