Louis A. Mongello has been fascinated by Walt Disney World (WDW) since the age of three, when he first visited with his family. At the time, WDW and the Magic Kingdom were just a month old. He's visited dozens of times since and devoted a considerable amount of energy to learning everything he can about the "Vacation Kingdom of the World," amassing an extensive - and still growing - collection of Walt Disney World memorabilia in the process. It includes rare documents outlining Walt Disney's original plans for his Florida project, books and articles about the parks and resorts, and materials available only to WDW Cast Members. He's also spent countless hours pouring over old property maps, information about bygone attractions, and video and still images of the "World" from its initial construction to the present day. A few years ago, Mongello decided he should "do something" with all the "useless knowledge" he had accumulated in order to share more of WDW's history, secrets, and inner workings with its millions of fans. Thus this book. He hopes it will add extra magic to your visits to Walt Disney World. Mongello has practiced law since 1994. He holds a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Villanova University and a Juris Doctor from Seton Hall University School of Law. Before forming his own computer consulting and web development company, Imagine Enterprises, in 1995, he served as law clerk to the Presiding Judge of the largest civil court division in the state of New Jersey. His other interests include computers, travel, martial arts training, poker, and running the DisneyWorldTrivia.com web site. Mongello lives in Edison, New Jersey, with his wife Deanna and daughter Marion Rose, who coincidentally was born on Mickey Mouse's 75th birthday.Mongello, Louis A. is the author of 'Walt Disney World Trivia Book Secrets, History & Fun Facts Behind the Magic', published 2004 under ISBN 9781887140492 and ISBN 1887140492.
