Key to the Kingdom: A Review

key to the kingdom disney bookI love Disney World. So, when I heard that there was a book out about Disney World, I was anxious to read it. I’m not all the way through The Key To the Kingdom yet, but I’ve read enough to know I’ll enjoy it.

The book is about a pastor, Hawk, who is given a key by a friend. The friend then mysteriously disappears, but not before telling Hawk that he needs to use the key to begin unlocking various clues to a mystery. These clues are all located in the various Disney parks, so along the way you learn Disney trivia as you follow Hawk on some pretty scary adventures.

I love that this book is very family friendly. The dialogue has no profanity. It would be fine to read after dinner out loud to your family. I also loved the various Disney World references. Having visited in 2008, I could relate to the descriptions of Main Street, Expedition Everest, and more. It was kind of like a cheap return visit for me 🙂

To improve “Key to the Kingdom,”  I’d pare it down a bit as I found it a little over-written. I think the author could have cut it from 260 pages to about 180 and not really lost anything. He also is in desperate need of an editor for the book, which troubled me since I’m a stickler for proper spelling and punctuation.

Do you like Disney World? Excitement? A good mystery? Pick up “The Key to the Kingdom;” I don’t think you’ll regret it.

Thanks to Mama Buzz for a review copy of this book.

  1. How I wish I could visit there, in person, not through a book, some day before I die. It looks less likely each year, however.

  2. Note from the author Jeff Dixon:
    I am glad you are enjoying the trip through the Magic Kingdom with Grayson Hawkes and company. I hope that when you arrive at the end of the story you will find it not only surprising but also satisfying.

    One of the things I hear over and over as people read the book is that it transports them to Central Florida and it creates within them a desire to visit Disney World, either for the first time or for a return visit.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read the book. I hope others who enjoy excitement and mystery will have some fun with the story as well.

  3. Hey how ’bout that? A post from the AUTHOR! Exciting I’d say!
