Disney History at Its Best
No one knows Disney history, or tells it better, than Jim Korkis, who presents an inaugural set of 28 stories from his Vault of Walt. Whether it’s Disney films, Disney theme parks, or Walt himself, Jim’s stories will charm and delight Disney fans of all ages.
The best-selling Vault of Walt series has brought serious, but fun, Disney history to tens of thousands of readers. In this, its first volume, former Disney cast member and master storyteller Jim Korkis weaves his home-spun, entertaining tales, from the early years of Walt Disney to the present.
Step inside the vault with Jim to hear about:

- Renie Bardeau, Disneyland's chief photographer, who took shots of the famous and the powerful who visited the park
- FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover's increasing distrust of Walt Disney—and Walt's growing FBI file
- The unlikely collaboration between Walt and surrealist painter Salvador Dali
