Book Review:  ‘The DFB Mini-Guide to the 2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival’

As a lifelong Disney fan, and a frequent attender of Epcot’s annual International Food and Wine Festival, I thought I knew everything there was to know about the world’s largest food and wine fest. 
That is, until I met AJ Wolfe.
Wolfe, who runs the uber popular and oh-so informative Disney Food Blog, makes it her business to know everything there is to know about everything food-related in the World of Disney.  And when we say, everything, that’s what we mean. 
So, it was no surprise that this Disney foodie extraordinaire has written the …

Interview with Chris Mitchell, author of “Cast Member Confidential: a Disneyfied Memoir”

Warning: Book spoilers! Interview begins after Book Review.
Sex, drugs, and questionably legal mischief are not something one would typically associate with the squeaky-clean image of Disney parks, especially if you are a devout Disney enthusiast.
