Theme Park Press Releases 'Vault of Walt Vol. 2'

Theme Park Press announces second volume of best-selling Jim Korkis book “The Vault of Walt.”

Disney historian Jim Korkis returns with a new heaping helping of unauthorized, unofficial Disney stories the Mouse never tells:

  • The Tale of the Seven Snow Whites
  • Walt's Bitter Battle over Mary Poppins
  • The Birth of the Disneyland Jungle Cruise
  • And over two dozen additional stories

Deb Wills of calls Korkis a “master storyteller.” His authoritative but friendly style has endeared him to Disney fans worldwide.

“As I toured the United States this past year doing presentations and book signings, I was overwhelmed by how many people loved my first book of Disney stories and kept asking for more,” said Korkis. “Well, here it is.”

Vault of Walt: Volume 2 is divided into four sections: stories about Walt Disney’s life, stories about Disney films, stories about Disney theme parks, and stories about out-of-the-ordinary Disney history. Each section presents seven self-contained stories featuring anecdotes, quotes and facts that have rarely if ever before appeared in print.

“I became deeply concerned that this unique history was disappearing with the deaths of those people who actually knew Walt and who first shared many of these wonderful stories with me,” stated Korkis. “Too many Disney books just keep telling the same stories. These stories are different. There is something for everyone in the book from the most knowledgeable Disney fan to the casually curious reader.

“I am grateful to share these stories with others who love Walt and Disney as much as I do.  If readers liked the first book, I guarantee they will love this one as well.”
