Each year Roundtable develops and manufactures new hardcover and paperback souvenir books for Disneyland® Resort and Walt Disney World® Resort. These handsome four-color keepsakes, sold only in the Disney parks, let readers retrace their steps through the parks and revisit their favorite attractions. It's not surprising that Roundtable also produces books whenever a Disney theme park marks a special occasion: the millennium, the creation of a new park, or an anniversary, for example.


Published on the day Disney's Animal Kingdom® first opened its gates, THE MAKING OF DISNEY'S ANIMAL KINGDOM® THEME PARK tells the story of how Disney conceived and executed one of America's most innovative theme parks over the course of 10 years beginning in 1989.
