Spotlight Tour: The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt

July 19, 2016 Book Talk 0

My first time to the enchanted land of Disney was with my parents and baby brother. I was probably 5 years old and mesmerized by the magical wonder. To see the castle, ride Pirates of the Caribbean and It’s a Small World {I still know all the lyrics!}. Over 40 years later the memories of my visits to Disney still fill me with nostalgic pleasure.

Which is why I’m so happy to have Catherine Olen, author of The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt, guest post here at  The Novel Life! Please join me in welcoming Catherine as she shares her motivations and desire for this book!

the great disneyland scavenger huntSee Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure through new eyes when you discover fantasy, thrills, and dreams around every turn. Whether you’re perusing the shops, waiting in line, or riding attractions, there’s plenty to uncover for even the most knowledgeable Disney fan.

If this is your first visit or your five hundredth, you will discover something new with “The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt.”

The history of Disneyland has been well documented over the years in literally thousands of books. Disney is a topic that fascinates people all over the world, but did you know Disneyland itself was created by history? My goal for writing The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt is to show those who love Disney some of the amazing details included by founder Walt Disney.

As someone who has been fascinated by history, I have wondered at the details included to honor the founders of the United States and the history surrounding the creation of our amazing country. Factual and fictional history combine to honor those who have come before us.

  • Enter the hall of the Main Street Opera house and listen to Abraham Lincoln as he gives the Gettysburg Address once more.
  • Ride on the Mark Twain Riverboat on the Rivers of America and hear your narrator talk about the history of the great rivers.
  • Enter New Orleans Square and find yourself face to face with bands of marauding pirates as they recreate the days when plundering was the rage.

Not just factual history, but fictional history shaped the Disneyland we know today. Check out the chapter on Fantasyland to see:

  • Walk through the gates of Sleeping Beauty Castle, designed after famed Neuschwanstein castle in Germany.
  • Ride with Peter Pan over the rooftops of London on your way to Neverland as you become center stage in one of Walt Disney’s films.
  • Ride on King Arthur’s Carousel and be transported back to the age of kings and queens.

The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt takes you on a tour of Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom in a whole new way when you take time to see the wonders of Snow White Grotto, The Hollywood Tower of Terror and Soarin’ over the World.

From first time visitors to families with small children to the most seasoned annual pass holder, there is something new to discover within the pages of The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt.
