DREAMFINDERS: Author David Koenig on Writing Mouse Tales and Calling Card Walker
In 1994, David Koenig authored the book Mouse Tales – the first unauthorized account of the history and culture of Disneyland. With it, he ignited a whole generation of fans, who were just as curious as he was about what was happening behind the scenes at the happiest place on Earth. From there, David wrote several books on different aspects of Disneyland, one on Disney Animation and another on Disney World – all parting the curtain in ways Disney would never do themselves.
David sits down with Nathan to talk Disney’s official reaction to Mouse Tales, his newest book on Disneyland’s original 1955 cast members, and that time former President of the Walt Disney Company Card Walker called him up on the phone.
