The Walt Disney Company to many has been shrouded in a sprawling mystery, toiled by intrigue. The esteemed corporation has put smiles on children and adults alike for decades now, melding unique experiences from film, television, literature, and most certainly theme parks. Coupled together, The Walt Disney Company is undoubtedly one of the most visceral companies for its consumers and most certainly for its employees which journalist Bruce Steele has covered to great lengths in One Day at Disney, a gorgeous and massive volume chronicling “one ordinary day” for a variety of disciplines at The Walt Disney Company. Having such a unique lens for even more unique careers makes for a revealing book that pulls back almost every layer to the average employee’s daily life. One Day at Disney is a fabulously stunning collection of anecdotes and information that meld together for one of the best books about the company that has birthed one Mickey Mouse. Enough said.
Relaying information from a normal Thursday in 2019, the stories of over eighty cast members have been stuffed within One Day at Disney’s 224 hardbound pages. Bruce C. Steele blends his signature snappy remarks with a unique charm that’s most certainly reminiscent of Disney. Featuring impressive, exclusive images from the Disney sets that the eighty cast members work at, One Day at Disney is intricately laced with easter eggs, particular for the veteran fans of the company. From massive appearances like the CEO of the Walt Disney Company himself, Robert A. Iger, to a fan-favorite character smugly hidden in a page-spanning image, the volume is stuffed with a galore of surprises.
In its base physical form, One Day at Disney comes in a stunning edition with a fabricated jacket and brilliantly colored images. On these merits alone would the book qualify as a worthy Christmas present for any die-hard Disney fan, but Steele’s expertly written coverage and prose lends for a literary experience essential for even casual fans of the Mouse House. It’s packed to the brim with nostalgia and heart, the very qualities that will surely drive readers to their local bookstore to pick up their copies of One Day at Disney. One Day at Disney sets a new benchmark for Disney’s Editions Deluxe division as well as for its genre of documentary volumes, sure to set hearts ablaze with joy and insightfulness when it hits store shelves on December 3rd, 2019.
