New Disney By The Numbers Book Released
DO YOU REALLY KNOW WALT DISNEY WORLD? / Disney By The Numbers
Orlando, Florida – September 26, 2015 – How much pixie dust is there at Walt Disney World,
anyway? Can you count it? Nope. But there are many things at Disney World you can count, and
Tony Caselnova has counted and measured and calculated and quantified them all.
You’ll learn things about the Disney World theme parks and resorts that you never knew
before—and that you never thought to ask.
Think you know Space Mountain? Tony knows the length of the tracks, the speed of the rockets,
how many guests can ride per hour, how much of the ride is below ground, the weight of the
concrete beams that support the mountain, and much, much more to amaze and edify any Disney
fan (and especially the ones who think they know it all).
And that’s just Space Mountain. Every Disney World theme park, resort, attraction, and show is
“enumerated” in the book, as well as Disney dining, Disney transportation, Disney recreation, and
Disney water parks. You’ll even find out how much Disney pays in taxes!
Disney by the Numbers: a unique look at your favorite theme park!
About the Author
My enthusiasm for all things Disney started when my parents took our family to Walt Disney
World. My first trip was at age thirteen, and it’s when my fascination with the park began. I
wanted to know how things there worked. I wanted details about such things as the number of
cast members and the length of the monorail track. Each visit brought new information.
Later, after my family moved to Orlando and I graduated from college, I got a job at Disney
World as a security cast member. My four duties were driving a security vehicle, standing a post,
working in a resort, and walking a park or other area. Sometimes I even had special duties like
working the Epcot Candlelight Processional. I would also escort celebrity guests from backstage
into the park.
As a cast member, I was given a little book of facts that I could reference when answering
questions from guests. The facts in that book form the backbone of the facts in this book. I
added many, many facts to what I already knew, and organized them all in a spreadsheet. Not
long after, I started a website called Disney by the Numb3rs, and now that website—or parts of
it, anyway—has become a book.
