You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy all things Disney — the magic of fairy tales and princesses is still very real at any age. After being closed for the last year, Disneyland officially reopened last week.

Outside of the silver glitter page edges that certainly evoke the feminine world of the princess, this book by Charles Solomon chronicles the Disney princess from 1937 to today — from Snow White to Moana — and is a fantastic history on the fairy tales behind the characters.

It’s great for anyone who wants to teach their kids about princesses, but also emphasize the depth of animation artistry.

Follow in the footsteps of various Disney employees during a typical day working for the company in this book, which is the companion to the Disney+ documentary and series that saw filmmakers and photographers capture what happens behind closed doors on one Thursday in 2019. The photos included in this book by journalist and Disney fan Bruce C. Steele were taken on that single day, including Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, Madrid, the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and dozens of places throughout the United States, and the day’s end at sunset on the Aulani resort in Hawaii.
The book profiles 80 “cast members” who opened up their workshops, dressing rooms, kitchens, cubicles, TV studios, labs, locomotive engines, and other diverse workspaces to the world as they revealed their stories that led them to their current jobs.

Disney up your game night with this two-to-four player game inspired by the beloved Haunted Mansion ride.
