    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review as part of a blog tour. When I first heard about this book I was beyond excited because I actually have the old One Day at Disney book that Disney put out in 2000. That book shows one day at the Disney parks. This book goes above and beyond the parks and shows cast members in all areas of the company. I loved the range of people and jobs they showcased.

This book goes above and beyond the parks and shows cast members in all areas of the company. I loved the range of people and jobs they showcased. One of my favorites was Thomas Self, who checks the underwater mechanics of The Jungle Cruise. Who knew that Disneyland had divers to do that? My other favorite was Cyril Soreau, who is a fruit and Vegetable sculptor at Disneyland Paris. Aside from park jobs, jobs in Imagineering, television/film, hospitality, and live entertainment were all featured. The write-ups on each person were incredibly well done. I felt like I really got to know each person and what made them and their job unique. The book itself is a massive coffee table book that is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures are stunning. It is definitely a book you will want to proudly display. Overall, this book is perfect for fans of all things Disney. It gives fans an exclusive behind the scenes look into the magic of Disney.

And there is so much to choose from when reading One Day at Disney. In a span of a full day, we are taken through the process of dress making (Belle’s beautiful gown makes an appearance), to a diving maintenance crew led by a retired U.S. Navy vet who watches over so many of the cherished animals throughout Disneyland, to The Ganachery chocolate shop at Disney Springs run by a Chocolatier Chef that previously worked as the pastry chef for over a decade at Walt Disney World. But those are only a tiny fraction of what goes on in a full day, only a few of those hours that make Disney attractions what they have become. As one keeps reading throughout this book, we’re introduced to so much more we might not have known of or seen… all to keep the magic alive for all of us. And once you get to know many more of those that work to keep all Disney locations running smoothly around the world, the love for all things Disney intensifies even more. I really can’t get enough of this book. It brought back many of those memories my family and I have of our time at Disneyland, how colorful and how incredible it all was. It’s an enchanting read all the way to the last page. And, if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a documentary streaming now on Disney + (link to the documentary above). It’s an absolute must watch for any Disney fan, even more so while looking over the book. The combo of the two were positively pure magic! ***I received this copy from Disney Publishing Publicity, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.***

    Super fascinating read! I’m knocking a star off because the book is so big it’s hard to hold comfortably and because I would have liked to see more profiles on “everyday people.” It was interesting to see facets of the company I’d never thought of before, but more frontline theme park and retail CM features would have been nice.

    Beautiful, well-photographed coffee table book highlighting different Disney cast members, both those behind-the-scenes and those on stage. Has inspired my children to find more nuances in their future Imagineering dreams.

    So much fun to read about the wide range of people, positions and places that fall under the Disney umbrella. I appreciated the attention to diversity. This book feels a little bit bittersweet knowing changes will be necessary due to the pandemic crisis and wondering what parts of the company will remain at the end.

    Such a fun read! Incredible to think about all the different jobs going on all day long at any given point in time at the whole of Disney enterprises. It was so interesting to read about various cast members' backgrounds, journeys to Disney, and their current Disney jobs. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    Gorgeous book! Loved how they put it together and the work all these people do. It was very interesting. The photographs are spectacular. This is not a book to read all in one sitting. Read a few stories or a chapter at a time and savor the beautiful stories.

    I saw this on Amazon, and it seemed interesting, though not interesting enough for me to buy it. Fortunately, I have a wonderful local library. A recent release, they didn’t have it in their collection, and the closest copy available through inter-library loan was several states away. So I suggested it via my library’s on-line form, and in a day or so received an e-mail that the book would be ordered, and shortly after another e-mail to let me know it was a available to check out.

So I suggested it via my library’s on-line form, and in a day or so received an e-mail that the book would be ordered, and shortly after another e-mail to let me know it was a available to check out. (They don’t always agree to requests, but must have agreed this was worth having in the collection.) Unfortunately, the book doesn’t fully line up with the description. My understanding was this book gave an inside look at the average day of numerous Disney employees around the world all on the same day, giving the reader an idea of what a typical day working for Disney is like. I believe it was probably photographed all on the same day, and the photos are beautifully produced in this over-sized coffee table volume. However, the text doesn’t focus on what they are doing on that day, but is rather a one page biography following a standard Disney-relevant format. Where they are from, their job title, a favorite Disney movie or ride, how they came to work for Disney, what they love about their job at Disney, maybe a brief anecdote featuring a special Disney memory. Also, the majority of the employees (probably 90%) are American, so if you’re looking for insight into the parks in other countries, you’ll find limited information. The employees seem carefully selected to showcase the whole Disney empire, not just the obvious parks and Disney movie people, but people involved with ABC, ESPN, Marvel, Star Wars, Disney Plus, Disney Cruise Lines, and Disney musicals. I recognize that Marvel and Star Wars are now part of the Disney empire, but as they were well established before acquired, the heavy focus on Marvel in a “Disney” book feels off-brand. Being published by Disney Press, it’s not surprising that everything is positive, and many of the employees conclude with a statement of how much they love working at Disney, their dream job. Granted, I know it may be a great job, but it’s still a job and every job has down sides. The overall effect feels less like an insightful look at reality and more like an expensive, 200-page piece of marketing from Disney Human Resources. There’s even a vaguely sycophantic two page spread full of photos of Disney CEO Bob Iger in a nondescript conference room during a meeting where the two photos on the previous page were enough, particularly as none of the photos are captioned indicating who the people are. There were some interesting jobs, like a man who is creating animatronic stunt robots that can do aerial gymnastics (but, it’s carefully stated, are not intended to replace human stunt workers), or a man who carves melons and gourds into elaborate images in Disneyland Paris. Disney fans, the obvious audience, and particularly anyone who dreams of one day working at Disney, will probably enjoy this book as it shows a very wide range of jobs and job skills, from acting and artists to science and construction, to food service and marketing. There are also several celebrities featured, including Robin Roberts, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Anthony Anderson, and Brie Larson. This is the kind of book that will quickly becomes dated—in fact already feels on the cusp as it focuses on a single Thursday in 2019. But beyond that, they are careful not to reveal anything to early in development, but promote 2019 releases. The result is the book features Frozen 2 and Captain Marvel; The Mandalorian and a High School Musical TV show on the newly launched Disney Plus; the final season of Modern Family and current season of Black-ish; the musicals of Frozen and Aladdin currently on Broadway; and several references to the new Pandora attraction at Animal Kingdom and refurbishments to Pirates of the Caribbean. Most of these, just months after publication, are already becoming old news. Had the book been balanced with more references to classic or just older movies, shows and attractions, the book would have a more timeless quality, but I acknowledge given the premise it’s hard to fault a focus on the present. Though generally beautifully produced, the text was at times physically difficult to read after a while, as all it’s a white font on a black background, and in the necessary good lighting the glossy pages kept reflecting light and blocking the text. They also didn’t adjust spacing when setting the smooth margins, leaving large gaps between some words. This is the kind of thing that is usually corrected with proofreading after typesetting, but given the scope of the content, the production schedule may have been rushed. I think avid Disney fans will really enjoy this, but for me it was just okay. I think they prioritized the visual aspect of this book over the text too much for my tastes.

    I enjoyed this book very much, but make no mistake it is nothing more than corporate propaganda. The majority of the people featured in this are college educated individuals or those who climbed the ladder from hotdog vendor to director of print advertising.

    A wonderful, behind-the-scenes look at the Disney Company--especially the parts that delved into the lives of "everyday" people rather than those who are always in the spotlight. For that reason, I liked the first half of the book better--which seemed to focus more on security guards, Imagineers, park employees, etc.--and less on people like Brie Larson and other celebrities. Parts of the book were obviously focused on "drumming up" interest in Disney's most recent endeavors, and so could feel a A wonderful, behind-the-scenes look at the Disney Company--especially the parts that delved into the lives of "everyday" people rather than those who are always in the spotlight.

Parts of the book were obviously focused on "drumming up" interest in Disney's most recent endeavors, and so could feel a little more like a commercial rather than an honest look into the lives that keep the Disney cogs turning. But most of the book was the latter--and those stories paired with the beautiful photography makes this something that any Disney fan will enjoy.

This is really too comprehensive to just flip through, but also not enough to be more than a coffee table book. It left me with a warm feeling, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're super into Disney.

    Great pictures, a good diversity of people represented (everything from movie stars to tree trimmers), and it seems to cover all aspects of the Disney company. Sure, it's a sunny look, but I didn't expect anything else.

In addition to the book, the Disney+ team was on hand to capture stories along the way. A full-length documentary and 52 short-form episodes expand the profiles and delve deeper into the essence of what it's like to be a Disney cast member. On a Thursday in 2019, a small army of photographers and videographers scattered across the globe to capture what goes on beyond those tantalizing "Cast Members Only" doors - whether eavesdropping on historic endeavors or typical tasks. All the photos in this book were taken on that single Thursday, beginning early in Tokyo and following the sun around the world through Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, Madrid, the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and dozens of places throughout the United States. More than 40 hours after it began, the day ended as the sun set on the Aulani resort in Hawaii. On that day, some 80 Cast Members agreed to open up their workshops, dressing rooms, kitchens, cubicles, TV studios, labs, locomotive engines - and some even more surprising and diverse work spaces.

I'm a Disney lover and I loved seeing all the bits and pieces that go into making every kid and kid at hearts dreams come true. The book is so cool and so special, definitely should be on your buy list if you or someone you know is a Disney lover. The writing makes you feel like you're having a personal conversation with these people and the art and pictures in it really make it a collectable of sorts. Definitely will be on my coffee table forever. Verdict: Definitely a must for this holiday season.

    “A Disney job is less a destination than a limitless journey.” And boy, what a journey it is – even just in one day! The unprecedented book-and-documentary collaboration between Disney Publishing Worldwide and Disney+ explores what an “ordinary” day might look like for cast members at The Walt Disney Company (TWDC) across the globe and in various roles. Cast members’ stories are captured by astonishing behind-the-scenes photos and engaging text. Safe to say, you are going to want this book on you “A Disney job is less a destination than a limitless journey.” And boy, what a journey it is – even just in one day!

Cast members’ stories are captured by astonishing behind-the-scenes photos and engaging text. Safe to say, you are going to want this book on your coffee table. I was lucky enough to receive a pre-release copy, and I enjoyed it so much that I simply had to chase up editorial director Wendy Lefkon and author Bruce Steele to chat about it. Check out my interview with them at www.thedisneyblog.com Wendy says, “[t]he team was surprised over and over by how many fascinating roles there are at the company.” From Bob Iger’s position as CEO; to Thomas Self, an attraction machinist who works predominantly under water(!); to Cyril Soreau, Disneyland Paris’s unique food sculptor; and lawyer-turned-Photopass photographer Fabiola Kersul De Salles, there are countless interesting and exciting roles and personalities at TWDC at every level. There are some great trivia tidbits in there too: did you know that Disney Cruise Line required special permission from the U.S. Coast Guard to have yellow lifeboats instead of regulation-required orange? Naturally, the lifeboats had to be the same yellow as Mickey Mouse’s shoes! My favorite story comes from Animator extraordinaire and Director of Walt Disney Animation Studios, Eric Goldberg. He recalls one phone call with a Disney recruiter: “Directors John Musker and Ron Clements are doing a movie of Aladdin and they’re getting Robin Williams for the genie. I don’t know if you’re interested.” You just can’t make that stuff up! Each featured cast member’s favorite Disney film or attraction is another fun inclusion in the book – and the answers are equally diverse! Their input and experiences are just as magical as the memories they create, and TWDC need not look far for new story content. Every cast member’s journey could be the storyline for the Company’s next big hit. One Day at Disney makes you feel like you can do it – whether that is pursuing your own dream of working at TWDC, or more generally applying the lessons therein to your everyday life. Ultimately, “one day” you’ll reach to infinity – and beyond!

I have been wanting this book since I found out about it, and I have another copy waiting to ship out on December 3rd. Why you may ask? Because I am a DISNEY FANATIC! My whole family lives, eats, and breathes Disney. We've been Annual Passholders since I was a child. We've seen almost every Disney movie (both animated and not), and yes, I'm talking even the old ones. We've been to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, with plans on Disneyland Paris next year. We only go on Disney cruises (5 and counting). We've been to D23 (and would love to go again). We decorate our house with Disney. We collect Disney. WE LOVE DISNEY. So to be able to get my grubby mitts on this book all about working at Disney was amazing!! Now, no matter how you feel about the Walt Disney Company, you have to admit, they put on a show for their guests. And in order to put that show on, they have to have a lot of help! Each cast member I have ever interacted with, from the maintenance staff to the head chef, has been welcoming and full of that Disney magic. To get to see the breath of jobs at the Walt Disney Company, and read about that cast members individual experience was so cool. You learn exactly what they do, and the possibilities are endless. While reading this book, I also learned some new things, which always makes me smile. Like the one cast member, Thom Self, who is an Attraction Machinist at Disneyland. Part of his job entails him diving under water to fix machine parts, like the animatronics in The Jungle Cruise, for example!! I didn't know that was a job! Each chapter within the book is broken down into periods of time, starting with 12:00AM all the way through 12:00PM (hence, the title). This allows the book to focus not only on the U.S. Disney properties and jobs, but the international ones too! Besides the very cool interviews with actual working cast members, the photographs that accompany each essay are gorgeous! They showcase the cast member and some other bits that involve their job. Also, the addition of the documentary will really connect with the book. You can do a trial of Disney+ if you want to check the documentary out on December 5th! As a subscriber (pay for it all myself), I feel like it is definitely worth it. I loved One Day at Disney, and it is the perfect coffee table book for my Disney crazy house.

    What I Loved: The photographs in this book were amazing! Each page is filled with beautiful photos giving the reader a wonderful look into each cast member’s day. Some photos are head-shots of the cast, or while they are working. Other pages have multiple shots of the person working on something. One of the many that I loved was Thomas Self.

There are close ups of him with the animals and I just loved getting that “behind-the-scenes” view. How I Felt: If you love Disney, this book will bring out the nostalgia in you! Each cast member’s bio includes their favorite Disney thing, and it was so fun to see what each of them love! The book is broken out into a literal day with each chapter a specific time frame of the day. We are introduced to the people that have the most prominent jobs during that time. Having the book broken out like this makes this more than just a coffee table book for me. It gave the book organization and made it so much more interesting the read. Overall, I loved this book and was so happy to have the chance to read it! To Read or Not To Read: If you love Disney, you’ll want to own this book. It is perfect for any Disney fan, child or adult! I was provided an advanced readers copy of this book for free. I am leaving my review voluntarily. All of my reviews are available at: https://shejustlovesbooks.com/

    I'm a huge Disney fan, so I thought this book was great! It's a day-in-the-life look at cast members at work. From jobs big to small, well-known and not, at Disney parks and companies around the world, it gives readers a glimpse into the complexities of how they make the magic happen on so many levels. It's a fun, behind-the-scenes look into operations, without destroying the magic. I never would have imagined that so many unique careers exist!

    I’m a huge Disney fan and was actually at Walt Disney World when this book came out. I didn’t wanna shove it carelessly into my luggage so I was thrilled when I got it as a Christmas gift from my fiancé. This book made me so happy. I love the peeks into the lives of people in all aspects of the Walt Disney company. From the images to the stories, each page kept my interest and wanted to get to know these people even more.

    This book was actually surprisingly insightful and interesting. I didn't really expect to learn about so many fascintating people that work for the Disney company. And the variety of jobs that are covered is great, you get to see cast members from all over the world in all kinds of roles. Even roles you would never think would exist. The photography in the book is also very well done. I received this book as a present and I would be hesitant to pay full price for it.

You would not be getting full value at the intial cost that Disney was selling it at. However, if you are interested in the people that work for Disney and can find it on sale I highly recommend it.

    Nice photos of course & there were jobs mentioned that I had never given any thought to being at a Disney park or connected to their movies/resorts/cruises/etc. but would have liked more information about what each person chosen to be interviewed actually did during an average day or that particular day when all the pictures/interviews were done instead of focusing so much on how much they each liked working at Disney Nice photos of course & there were jobs mentioned that I had never given any thought to being at a Disney park or connected to their movies/resorts/cruises/etc. but would have liked more information about what each person chosen to be interviewed actually did during an average day or that particular day when all the pictures/interviews were done instead of focusing so much on how much they each liked working at Disney

    I finished reading this book in a day cause I was so amazed about all the people who works in Disneyland but my favorite one is the person who works in Tokyo Disney land and she made the awesome show that I love so much! She even from the same city as me so I was so happy:D I am so glad that Disneyland is real and they always tell us that dreams will come true for sure:):):)

    As a big Disney parks fan, I was interested in hesring about all the people that go into the magical experience. It is very cool to read this and discover exactly what I have always been meant to do within the pages.. I liked to hear the stories of the people, it makes me appreciate them and the magic even more!
