JOSHUA C. SHAFFER
Second time published author, Joshua Shaffer, has spent his adult life frequenting Disneyland.
One year while on a Disney vacation, it struck him that he should write an all-inclusive book compiling every bit of information into one vacation guide that cannot be found anywhere else. It started with that simple notion and has evolved into this final work.
As a hobby, he spends much of his spare time researching and investigating to find out the facts not just the rumors on a variety of topics. Joshua has been a cartoonist and artist since the age of ten.
His first edition of Discovering The Magic Kingdom: An Unofficial Disneyland Vacation Guide was released on October 1, 2010, and his second edition was released July 17, 2017.
The second edition has over 3,700 exciting "fun facts," is packed with over 750 photos, trivia, a scavenger hunt, ways to help cut park expenses and so much more, you'll never leave for Disneyland without it.
In 2007, Theme Parkology was established with its first documentary, Disneyland 1955-1959. The disc covered the history and changes of Walt Disney's famed park through its first 5 years.

Gavin Doyle has been a Disneyland enthusiast since his first visit at age four. His first memory is of a rainy day where the park was joyously empty. The pure bliss of walking onto any ride with no line fed his initial love for Disneyland. He continues to hope he will have the same luck on New Year’s Eve, as he returns annually on the most crowded day of the year to celebrate his birthday.
Gavin is now the editor of www.DisneyDose.com, the website that focuses on educating the Disney enthusiast through exclusive interviews, breaking news updates, and photos from Disneyland. Over the years the site has received numerous features in outlets including Forbes, the Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, the Los Angeles Times, and many others.
Gavin founded www.MickeyVisit.com, the ultimate online planning resource for Disneyland. This free website helps guests to find the best deals on tickets, hotels, and other excursions. Also, guests can find information on the best restaurants, souvenirs, and time saving strategies. Now, www.MickeyVisit.com is growing to be one of the most popular Disneyland planning websites on the web with over 2.5 million visitors in 2016.
Gavin Doyle is 19 years old and a Sophomore at the University of Southern California studying Business and Cinematic Arts.
Jeff Baham is the founder of DoomBuggies.com and the Mousetalgia podcast. DoomBuggies.com, founded in 1997, has been credited by many inside and outside of the Disney company as the leading source of news about the Haunted Mansion attraction, and Mousetalgia has been called the best Disneyland-centric podcast by the industry-leading "Unofficial Guide to Disneyland" for nine years in a row.
"I'm a monster kid, born in the '60s, growing up in the suburbs just a quick bike ride from the dime store," Baham explains when asked why he started a Haunted Mansion website over two decades ago. "The three weeks or so of the Haunted House season - starting the day in October that the costumes, masks and make-up hit the drugstore shelves - were the highlight of each year. I can distinctly remember the gleeful aroma of a new Ben Cooper plastic Halloween mask on my face to this day. More importantly, I also always owned a copy of Disneyland Records' "The Story and Song from The Haunted Mansion." In fact, I went through a number of copies of "The Haunted Mansion," because I had a tendency to trace the pictures in the read-along book, often with the vinyl still in the gatefold."
Baham founded the Mousetalgia Podcast in 2008. Mousetalgia is a west coast-based audio show about Disneyland and Disney history, broadcasting a new episode every Monday. Alongside co-hosts Dave and Becky Breiland and Kristen Pfeifer, the group discusses the latest news at the Disneland Resort and interviews Disney legends, authors and artists each week. The podcast recently celebrated its tenth anniversary and 500th episode.
In 2014, Baham wrote "The Unauthorized Story of Walt Disney's Haunted Mansion" published by Theme Park Press, which reached the "Top Seller" ranking in the "Theme Parks" category on Amazon.com. Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water, Crimson Peak) writes of the book: "Having delved into Disney lore for decades and been immersed in the Haunted Mansion world since age 3, I thought I knew pretty much everything there was to know about my favorite ride ever. I was wrong. Prepare to be enchanted, bewildered and mesmerized by this beat-by-beat account of the Haunted Mansion's creation. A haunted tour that is both scholarly and thrilling. An "E" ticket ride to the darkest, most glorious regions of Disney's imagination!" Imagineer (and original Haunted Mansion designer) Rolly Crump wrote the foreword, and Disney Legend Floyd Norman wrote the introduction. The book is available at www.doombuggies.com/book.
