Description

THE DARK SIDE OF DISNEY reveals all of the tips, tricks, scams, and stories that THEY don’t want you to know about! Unabashedly unafraid of offending the family-oriented audiences catered to by other Disney travel guides, author Leonard Kinsey gives intrepid travelers access to the seamy, raunchy, and often hilarious underbelly of Walt Disney World. From cautionary tales of scoring illegal tickets, to thrilling accounts of exploring off-limits areas, to chronicles of drug-induced debauchery, this completely unauthorized guidebook will change the way you think about vacationing at “The Happiest Place on Earth”.

"THE DARK SIDE OF DISNEY shines a light into the roachy shadows of Walt Disney World. With 33 years of experience storming the gates of the Magic Castle, Leonard Kinsey has explored every possible option for a low-cost Disney vacation, ranging from the immoral to the downright illegal. Packed with all the tips that Disney was hoping you wouldn’t discover, like free parking and bottomless beverage scams, this book also teaches you how to get free airline drink tickets and bar/pool hop around the high end Disney resorts like Hollywood glitterati.

Ever wanted to know where to have uninterrupted coitus on property? Kinsey points the way. Where to score weed? Keep reading. Kinsey charges to the roof of The Contemporary and spelunks into The Utilidors to bring you the finest nuances of an underground Disney vacation.

Pack the trunks and leave the kids at Grandma’s because THE DARK SIDE is about to make your next Disney vacation the best one ever!"

-Chris Mitchell, author of CAST MEMBER CONFIDENTIAL

    I bought this book on a whim thinking it might be a juicy read. It turns out to be mainly info you can find online and not much substance.

    If you are a seasoned WDW visitor there is nothing in this book that you don't already know or that can't easily be found elsewhere on the web for free. The highlights are the amusing personal anecdotes and not the 'tips' themselves, but they are few and far between. That said, Mr. Kinsey is clearly someone with much admiration for WDW and Walt Disney, for that he gets my respect.

    Seriously so entertaining, helpful, and enlightening!! I love love LOVE this book. Amazing author, I'm so glad there are die-hard Disney-heads like myself who are constantly searching for different ways to explore the parks, and to have someone to turn to and get answers!! Amazing, I love it, I'm definitely doing WDW with a different perspective! THANK YOU! p.s This is a definite book for ANY Disney-head!!

    A very interesting and exciting look behind the hidden side of Disney. Even in "Mouse-topia", people are people.

    As a fellow Disney couniseur and frequent WDW guest, I truly appreciate the authors focus to share the "other side of the planters" in the Most Magical Place On Earth!

    This book just rejuvenated my love for Disney World. I was just there in June this year and felt like some of the magic was missing. I now know how to rekindle some of what was missing and I am looking forward to going back. Great read, very informative and entertaining.
