Daily Figment 111 - Wish List Double Header

The day after Thanksgiving is typically one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

We don't want all of you Disney Geeks being left out in the cold, searching through used book stores, dollar stores and electronic stores for your favorite Disney Geek. We want to share three more items to add to your Disney Geek Wishlist that you can order from the comfort of your home.

The first one up--are you ready for this--is a DVD. That's right, we are recommending something besides a book for once (even Ray could watch this one).

Modern Marvels: Walt Disney World is a two-hour long DVD about the history, construction, secrets and general awesomeness that is Walt Disney World. Hands down, it is one of the best video-related productions on WDW that we have seen. Each park is covered, including a lot of behind-the-scenes information and construction. Anyone who has visited WDW will enjoy this DVD. Trust us, you will learn something by watching it. And besides, what else are you going to do for two hours?






Our next two items are so well-known that we bet each and every one of you already owns both volumes.

Good friend Lou Mongello has written two of the best WDW trivia books available. Filled with so many trivia questions, you'll wonder how he does it all: award-winning podcast host, author, Disney Kingpin, forum administrator and Jeff's sidekick. Wait. Strike that. Reverse it.

When you delve into one of Lou's books, you will find a hard time putting it back down. The books are broken down by sections, so you could take the books into the parks and entertain your whole group while you wait in line. You could have trivia contests to see who gets to sit with whom. You could challenge everyone at the table to trivia questions to see who has to pick up the bill. You could even alienate your wife and children by spouting off so much useless trivia.
Oh, wait. That was me.

Anyway, both of these volumes are amazing and they deserve to be under your tree this year. If you are going to be at MouseFest, stop by his table and buy a copy. He does have a wife and kids to support. Trust us, if you enjoy Lou's podcast (I know you do), you need to have both of these titles. The amount of information he presents (more than just trivia--the answers are mini-essays at times) is awe-inspiring.

Also, Lou needs to publish a third volume of the trivia book so that he can put his son on the cover. We would hate for him to grow up and need counseling.
