Magic in the details...
Beginning with the July 1983 issue of Disney Channel Magazine, Dave Smith began answering Disney trivia questions from viewers of the Disney Channel. In the ensuing 30 years, his column has continued through multiple publications, including Disney Magazine, the on-line ''Disney Insider,'' and most recently the D23 website. ''Ask Dave'' questions have come from Disney enthusiasts the world over, and have covered topics ranging from Cinderella's last name (Tremaine) to the number of triangles covering the surface of Epcot's Spaceship Earth (11,324 facets comprising 954 triangles.)
The book is divided into chapters that each cover an aspect of Disney history, including Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Disney films, Disney television, and Disney characters. Many of the questions bring up interesting information that has not been published elsewhere, and readers will delight in discovering some of the secrets behind their favorite movies and theme parks. ''Did the same actress provide the voice of Maleficent, as well as the voice of Madame Leota, the head in the crystal ball in The Haunted Mansion'' ''Who was the first athelete to say 'I'm going to Disneyland!''' Dave knows the answers!
