"The Kingdom Keepers" by Ridley Pearson

I feel so great right now! For practically forever, I’ve been searching around for a fiction book that is revolving around Disneyland or Disney World… And I’ve finally found one! And even better, this person is the coauthor of ‘Peter and The Starcatchers’, a cool sequel to the book Peter Pan. I read it a few weeks ago and am in love with it. :wub:

This is the description from Amazon…

'Using cutting-edge technology, five Florida teens have been transformed into Holographic Hosts at Disney World. Their images appear throughout the Magic Kingdom, giving visitors information about the various attractions. It all seems to be going well, until the participants begin having disturbing dreams that start affecting their everyday lives.

They sneak in after the park has closed, and Wayne, a retired Imagineer, directs them in their fight against the Dark Side, embodied by Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. Audio-animatronic pirates from The Pirates of the Caribbean travel through the Magic Kingdom in the little cars from the Buzz Lightyear ride. The dolls from It’s a Small World clamber into the boats and start biting the occupants. Cinderella’s Castle is filled with an eye-popping array of staircases, à la Escher.

There’s a certain coolness factor for the notion that people could be both human and hologram at the same time, and the illicit thrill of seeing all the things you don’t normally get to see (both real and imaginary) makes this a must-read for serious Disney fans. However, readers never really get to know any of the characters well, except for Finn, the narrator, and the mystery is so convoluted that it’s hard to follow, and even harder to care about.’

I can’t wait to start reading it! And wow, I couldn’t stop laughing about the part with the IASM dolls…

It was published last year. I read it shortly after it came out when I was still in my VMK craze. :blush: It’s a really easy read, but it’s a pretty cute book.
