When Disney comes looking for five teenagers to serve as actors for a new technology-Daylight Hologram Images, or DHIs-there is more to it than meets the eye. Strange things have been happening inside the Florida park: parts from one ride are found mysteriously moved to another; in the Fantasmic! show, the dragon unexplainably triumphs over Mickey; little blips in story lines and "offstage" antics by characters trouble managers. Finn Whitman, a middle-schooler, goes to sleep one night and has the dream of a lifetime: he "wakes up" inside Disney World as his DHI character, a glowing hologram. He meets an old man there, Wayne, who claims to be one of the original Imagineers and explains to Finn that he "and your friends" have a mission to save the park from forces that humans can neither see nor hear. Not believing his dream, but not totally discounting it, Finn, back in real life, sets out to find the four other kids who were chosen to be DHIs and in doing so he learns an eerie fact: he is not alone in this "dream." The others have had similar experiences. What if this is for real?

This book is especially good to read if you are about to make a trip to a Disney park. I read it before my second trip Disney, so I knew the area of most of the attractions that are spoken of which makes that much more fun as well. Now this book is not really one of those deep thinkers. It is purely...
Soo...I guess if we're gonna bump into each other tonight in our dreams, we might want to decide when we're all going to sleep. Everyone has a 9 p.m. bedtime, right? Wait, what? You get to stay up til 10? No fair! While I was reading Disney After Dark, I kept comparing it in my head to a starter ver...
This book did not live up to my expectations at all! The cover blurb sounded so good, and yet it took me forever to get into it. The first 30-45% of the book really drags and that detracts from the story. As readers, we are expected to suspend disbelief in order to get into and enjoy the story, y...
