“Even if you have made many trips to Disneyland, you probably have not noticed all of the little touches that were designed into the park. The book is a delight to read, bringing up many “I never knew that” comments. The author’s many color photographs enable the reader to actually visualize all the points discussed. Loads of fun!”

“When I received this book in the mail, autographed by the author, I was very excited to read it. It was packed full of over 340 color photos. Every glossy page was just covered with them. Russell Flores did a great job at pointing out things around the park that most people don’t even notice. He even gives bits of trivia with some of them. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to see what they don’t normally see.”
Joshua Shaffer, Author, Discovering The Magic Kingdom: An Unofficial Disneyland Vacation Guide
This book is a must have in any collection of the book we all know we already have from Disney. The forward alone sums it all up and gives me chills thinking about uncovering even more than I already know about the ‘Happiest Place on Earth.’
DisneyBlu, Disney On Demand Podcast
Seen, Un-Seen Disneyland is one of the best efforts that I have seen to date in making Disneyland pictures the star in a non-Disney published book.
Russell has put together a delightful book based on a simple premise; focus on Disney details that are hidden in plain sight. This journey into authorship was the result of 2005 trip when Russell noticed how Disneyland themed it’s trashcans. Having met Russell a couple of times, I can see how this became an obsession. Over the years worked hard reading everything he could and started to document these little treasures. Along with trash cans, Russell documents other not so hidden treasures like ticket booths, Sleeping Beauty Castle, the sexy women of Disney (?), signs, “The Ghosts of Disneyland Attractions Past,” turkeys, and much more. If you are looking for secret knowledge to freak out your friends or to peel back another layer while visiting the park, the book is a good read. The book is filled with color photos. To his credit, he footnotes all of his information, adding much needed credibility. Watch for multiple volumes.
Sam Gennawey, Author / MiceChat writer (Walt and the Promise of Progress City / The Disneyland Story)
A while ago I read about the cats at Disneyland and was excited to actually see pictures of them in this book. My favorite part was that it shows lots of pictures of Hidden Mickeys in Disneyland. This is a great book for people who would like to know about all about cool little known things in Disneyland. I recommend this book for big Disney fans!
