    I love myself some Disney history! Whether it's about Walt's life, the parks, the animation, or anything to do with Disney! Can someone recommend me a good book about Disney's history? Any suggestions are welcome! Thank you in advance!

    A friend recently gave me The Illusion of Life by Ollie Johnston. It is focused on animation development, and a bit technical, but it has gorgeous illustrations and behind the scenes photos.

    Oh, and :welcome: to the DIS!

    That is one of my absolute favorite books! It recently went back into print after being out of print for many decades.

    I think you will really like it. It will teach you How and Why the animators/Imagineers think the way they do...
