Blog Tour: ONE DAY AT DISNEY by @BSteeleAVL, Bob Iger (Introduction) Review & #Giveaway! @DisneyBooks

About The Book:


Title: ONE DAY AT DISNEY
Author: Bruce Steele, Bob Iger (Introduction)
Pub. Date: December 3, 2019
Publisher: Disney Editions Deluxe
Formats: Hardcover
Pages: 224


Discover what it's like to report to work every day for The Walt Disney Company. Step behind the scenes to immerse yourself in one "ordinary" day at Disney. In addition to the book, the Disney+ team was on hand to capture stories along the way. A full-length documentary and 52 short-form episodes expand the profiles and delve deeper into the essence of what it's like to be a Disney cast member.

On a Thursday in 2019, a small army of photographers and videographers scattered across the globe to capture what goes on beyond those tantalizing "Cast Members Only" doors - whether eavesdropping on historic endeavors or typical tasks. All the photos in this book were taken on that single Thursday, beginning early in Tokyo and following the sun around the world through Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, Madrid, the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and dozens of places throughout the United States. More than 40 hours after it began, the day ended as the sun set on the Aulani resort in Hawaii.

On that day, some 80 Cast Members agreed to open up their workshops, dressing rooms, kitchens, cubicles, TV studios, labs, locomotive engines - and some even more surprising and diverse work spaces. They also shared their stories: childhood dreams and chapters, career pivots and triumphs, workaday hurdles and joys. It was just a day in the life, as extraordinary as any other day at Disney. As any Cast Member can tell you, a Disney job is less a destination than a limitless journey. And for just One Day at Disney, we can all tag along for the ride.

Review:

I am a huge Disney Fan, I always have been. My first time at Disneyland was way back in the late 1970’s when I was barely tall enough to go on the kids rides (yes I know I’m dating myself lol) but the magic has stayed with me all this time. This book is so freaking cool! Not only do we get to see the cast members doing what they love but we get these gorgeous photos to go with it! And I love that they didn’t just focus on the Disney parks, you get to see people from across the company like Good Morning America, ABC News, & Star Wars which is another huge part of my life I have loved the Star Wars Franchise forever! What I love about this book is you can share it with your kids and show them if they want to work at Disney they can and they can do it anywhere in the world! Oh and make sure to watch the documentary on Disney + it was great as well!


Thanks so much Disney Books for this beautiful addition to my book collection, I will treasure it always!

  5. In this world of constant competition, it is difficult to survive as a self-pub author. Every detail matters and getting reviews is a big part of my marketing strategy. I ordered a few reviews from https://100freekindlereviews.com to get more visibility and sales this Christmas season..
