Ep. 21 - Mouse Tales and More with Pioneering Disney Author David Koenig
This week were truly honored to speak with pioneering Disney author David Koenig.  David has been writing about Disney since the 1980's, with his first book "Mouse Tales," published in 1994.  "Mouse Tales" broke ground in surfacing the behind-the-scenes Disneyland story to the masses through castmember interviews and stories.  David has since gone on to write multiple books about Disney including a sequel to Mouse Tales - "More Mouse Tales," an insider look at Walt Disney World called "Realityland," and book detailing the impact of lawsuits on Disneyland park operations called the "People v. Disney," a book celebrating the stories behind Disney animated films called "Mouse Under Glass," and his newest book chronicling the stories of some of the original castmembers who opened Disneyland in 1955 called the "55ers."  It was truly a pleasure to talk to David and tell his story!  Check out David's books on Amazon.
