THE DARK SIDE OF DISNEY reveals all of the tips, tricks, scams, and stories that THEY don’t want you to know about! Unabashedly unafraid of offending the family-oriented audiences catered to by other Disney travel guides, author Leonard Kinsey gives intrepid travelers access to the seamy, raunchy, and often hilarious underbelly of Walt Disney World. From cautionary tales of scoring illegal tickets, to thrilling accounts of exploring off-limits areas, to chronicles of drug-induced debauchery, this completely unauthorized guidebook will change the way you think about vacationing at “The Happiest Place on Earth”.

"THE DARK SIDE OF DISNEY shines a light into the roachy shadows of Walt Disney World. With 33 years of experience storming the gates of the Magic Castle, Leonard Kinsey has explored every possible option for a low-cost Disney vacation, ranging from the immoral to the downright illegal. Packed with all the tips that Disney was hoping you wouldn’t discover, like free parking and bottomless beverage scams, this book also teaches you how to get free airline drink tickets and bar/pool hop around the high end Disney resorts like Hollywood glitterati.

Ever wanted to know where to have uninterrupted coitus on property? Kinsey points the way. Where to score weed? Keep reading. Kinsey charges to the roof of The Contemporary and spelunks into The Utilidors to bring you the finest nuances of an underground Disney vacation.

Pack the trunks and leave the kids at Grandma’s because THE DARK SIDE is about to make your next Disney vacation the best one ever!"

-Chris Mitchell, author of CAST MEMBER CONFIDENTIAL

    If you are a disneyjunkie as I gotta read this book...if you are a disneyjunkie who travels to Walt Disney world quite often and always looking for the best deals from airfare to dining gotta read this book...if you are a disneyjunkie who wants some inside dirt and well as some hilarious humor(his sense of humor is much like my own) gotta read this book! Not that there was any insider tips on any deals that you probably don't know already but I didn't think there were others like me that knew all the ins and outs like I do.....great job writing this book
