Nicely done. Malmberg charts the course of Animal Kingdom's creation from concept to opening day. As a former imagineers herself, she does an excellent job of giving attention to every facet of theme park design from ride creation to maintenance. She focuses on the actual people performing the jobs, and their unique backgrounds. More than anything else, a reader comes away with a better understanding of just what a monumental job it is to build a completely new theme park from scratch.
I've had the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time at Walt Disney World over the years, and Animal Kingdom has become my favorite park to visit. The attention to detail and theming there really stands well above its three sister parks. In Walt and the Promise of Progress City, Sam Gennaway discussed the "higher quality of life" that Disney parks tend to exhibit. A certain "quality without a name" that makes a place feel inviting, comforting, or special. Animal Kingdom more than any other place in WDW is, to me, the embodiment of this quality. Walking through the park, one can't help but feel surrounded by the imagination and creativity of it's designers. Furthermore, Animal Kingdom has retained a commitment to education through entertainment, which is something EPCOT used to pride itself in, but has sadly been lost over time.
All the above sentiments were feelings I already had before reading Malmberg's book. After reading, I can honestly say I have an even greater understanding and appreciation of the place. She treats her subject matter with a great deal of respect, but doesn't fall into the trap of elevating the Imagineers to the status of living gods (like many Disney books). She presents them as real people, with real problems to solve. The text is also supported with an enormous amount of beautiful photography. Hats off to Melody Malmberg, this is definitely a stand-out among books on Disney Imagineering.
