Jim Korkis Joins The easy Guide Team
By Dave Shute
As noted here in the overall introduction to the 2015 edition of The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World Visit, Jim Korkis, the dean of Disney historians, has joined The easy Guide team, along with me and Josh as authors, and editor/publisher Bob McLain of Theme Park Press.
Jim Korkis is best known as an author (my favorite among his works is the The Vault of Walt) and MousePlanet.com columnist (see a list of his columns here). His focus is lesser-known Disney history. Before his writing career he was a cast member whose jobs included teaching animation and researching and teaching Disney history to cast members and others.
Jim’s books come out from the same publisher as us, so on the principle that all great Disney World guidebooks require vignettes by a dude named Jim, Bob brought Jim into the fold.
Jim has contributed a number of historical vignettes like the ones at the top of the page and below to The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World Visit 2015.
These add even more depth, fun and interest to the book, especially for repeat visitors to Disney World. I know a bit about Disney World–but all of Jim’s contributions but a couple were new to me, so I’ll bet they are new to you too!
The easy Guide to Your First Walt Disney World Visit 2015. Fun, essential, and historically significant. Thanks, Jim!
