Did you ever wonder about the people who write all those books on Walt Disney World?

What inspired them? How did they gather all that information?

ALL EARS® has been wondering, too, so we decided to find out for ourselves!

To share that insight with you, ALL EARS® continues an informative, occasional series called Meet the Authors!
