Heck of a good story. So much fun to have the worlds of Disney and technology merged and to hear so many exciting background details around Disney World! Makes me want to go re-read Cory Doctorow’s Down and Out In The Magic Kingdom.

Laura brought up an interesting point in comparing this teen series with the beloved teen series of my youth (K.A. Applegate’s Animorphs) – the teenage protagonists feel much more real here. The things they say, the way they react to events, the choices they make; she find them more believable.

Spoiler Alert! (place and hold your mouse over the bar to see)

My friend Nik (Disneyland Cast Member / fellow Disney nerd) brought up an interesting point as well: how could Walt have placed the quill clues in attractions that weren’t built until years after his passing (to be even more exacting, the Magic Kingdom was just a gleam in his eye when he passed)? My response is that Wayne and his cohorts in charge of protecting his legacy made sure that the elements that Walt had specified were transplanted intact, but it is a little squidgy.
