What made you decide to write The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt?
As an annual pass holder for over twenty-five years, I’ve observed thousands of guests coming through the gates and missing so much of the subtle magic Disneyland has to offer. I wanted people to experience Disneyland through my eyes and see some of the details Walt Disney so lovingly included in his theme park.
What is your favorite attraction at Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure?
My favorite attractions are always changing with the time of year or my journey as an annual pass holder. The Haunted Mansion is a classic Disneyland attraction and I love the change for Halloween to The Nightmare Before Christmas theme. The annual visit from Jack Skellington is something I look forward to every fall. While writing The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt, I found new favorites like Splash Mountain and Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.
There are many books out about Disney, what makes yours different?
While there have been books written about the trivia surrounding Disney or the history of Disney, With The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt, I’ve written about the details surround the guests. No matter which of the themed lands you are exploring, there is something new to find or rediscover no matter how many times you’ve been within the gates of Disneyland.
What does The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt offer for families with small children?
When writing The Great Disneyland Scavenger Hunt, I made sure to create questions for families so the kids can feel like they are participating along with their parents in exploring the parks. The questions were coded with one, two or three stars with the one star questions specific to children or families. The kids will be entertained during their time in line and during their meals when they might otherwise be bored or fussy.
What are your plans for the future of Mouse Hangover and the Scavenger Hunt book?
I am very excited to announce The Great Walt Disney World Scavenger Hunt and The Great Universal Studios Florida coming soon. Guests will have the opportunity to see The Florida theme parks in much the same way I do. I only hope they will fall in love with all of the parks the way I have over the past twenty-five years.
