Happy World Book Day!
DisneyDan  Thursday, March 7, 2013 11:59:07 AM
Hello everyone,

Today is World Book Day, which celebrates the magic of reading, stories, authors and of course books themselves.
Stories have been told and passed down through millennia, from the time of the cavemen who drew pictures on the walls, right to the modern day gadgets such as Kindles that can store thousands of books.
Without these stories, our imaginations would never be stimulated, and we would never dream of far off lands, castles with magical inhabitants, heroes and villains battling across space and time, and fairytales that offer escapism and fantasy.

Virtually every Disney story finds its inspiration in an old tale or ancient fable. The Disney Parks are built upon the stories told by Walt Disney and his successors, through film, television, theatre and other art forms, which are translated into the fantastical realms we can discover at the Disney Parks.

Remember on this World Book Day to pick up and read. Feed your imagination, and never lose the curiosity of what a real book might hold within its covers. You never know what you may discover!
