One of the best parts of Holiday Magic at the Disney Parks is the dedication to the history of the parks. As you read through the book, you will see how the traditions that we love and know originated, and see incredible pictures from traditions that no longer exist. You will also come away with a newfound respect for the Disney Cast Members who make the holidays appear overnight throughout the parks and park-adjacent properties. 

We don’t want to spoil too much about the secrets unveiled within the pages of this book, but Disney fans will love this rare glimpse into the Disney warehouses where the holidays live year-round and the detailed concept art and illustrations that help the Imagineers bring the magic to life.
