I love Disney World - it's one of my favorite places to visit, even as an adult! I thought it would be fun to put together a list of books inspired by the rides and atmosphere at Disney World (particularly the Magic Kingdom), so here are my five recommendations to read before you visit!
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller: The Pirates of the Caribbean ride is one of my favorites in the Magic Kingdom, and this book will definitely get you in the swashbucklin' mood, with its awesome cast of lady pirates!
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells: Tomorrowland was meant to be Walt's Disney vision of the future and a glimpse towards the advances society would make. I chose this classic novel because it helped pioneer the concept of time traveling, and within its pages, H.G. Wells imagined what the future of our planet would look like.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer: I could have done a whole post about retellings related to Disney princesses and their original fairy tales, but I chose Cinder because Cinderella Castle is arguably the most iconic part of the Magic Kingdom. Plus, it was just a really awesome book!
The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel: In this book, two sisters take a trip around the world, which perfectly pairs with the ride "It's a Small World"! You know you love those singing dolls!
The Truth About Happily Ever After by Karole Cozzo: The main character in this book plays Cinderella at a Florida theme park that shares a lot of similarities with Disney World. I love this book because it includes some fun behind-the-scenes stuff into the inner workings of a theme park.
