Disney After Dark

The Kingdom Keepers Series, Book 1
Borrow Borrow Borrow
In this fantastical thriller, five young teens tapped as models for theme park 'guides' find themselves pitted against Disney villains and witches that threaten both the future of Walt Disney World and the stability of the world outside its walls. Using a cutting-edge technology called DHI—which stands for both Disney Host Interactive and Daylight Hologram Imaging—Finn Whitman, an Orlando teen, and four other kids are transformed into hologram projections that guide guests through the park. The new technology turns out, however, to have unexpected effects that are both thrilling and scary. Includes a preview chapter from Kingdom Keepers II - Disney at Dawn!

Reviews-
  • DOGO Books no_soprano - When the Disney theme parks installed the holographic hosts, which are known as DHIs (Dayling Hologram Imagining) and (Disney Host Interactive), they had no idea what was in store. Finn, Maybeck, Willa, Charlene, and Philby are the five DHIs, and they are also high schoolers. Sometimes when the kids go to sleep, they wake up in one of the Disney parks, as their holograms. In book 1 they wake up in WDW. When they go on these visits, there is trouble brewing caused by the Overtakers, also known as the Disney villains. The Overtakers are trying to take over the Disney parks. With the help of an old imagineer, who personally knew Walt Disney, two powerful sisters, and the help of each other, they try to overcome the Overtakers. I highly recommend all seven books in the series.

    This far-fetched, high-concept story will find an audience despite its fuzzy premise and the creaky workings of its plot. Finn Whitman, 13, is one of five "hologram hosts," middle-school students whose likenesses have been digitally captured so they can appear constantly, guiding visitors around Disney's Magic Kingdom. Finn awakens one night, inside the park, as his hologram self. He's met by Wayne, one of the original "Imagineers," who tells Finn that all five hosts are needed to solve a riddle left by Walt to prevent the villainous "Overtakers" from wreaking havoc inside the gates and throughout the world. Their mission to solve the puzzle, which involves 3-D glasses and trips inside rides such as It's a Small World and Splash Mountain is enough fun that most readers will set aside some nagging questions (e.g., how did Walt, who died five years before the park opened, leave clues inside structures that hadn't been built yet, and why are a bunch of seventh-graders the only ones who can save the place?). The threat rings hollow anyway. Only one "Overtaker" materializes—Maleficent, the witch from Disney's Sleeping Beauty
    . Finn is the sole fleshed-out character (the two girl hosts are given little to do and seem indistinguishable), and some passages read like an ad (as when Wayne catologues the Disney empire: "the Disney parks, the cruise line, the Broadway shows, the Web sites, Disney on Ice"). Still, with Finn and friends traversing tunnels and battling the creepy Audio-Animatronic characters, readers will likely line up for this ride. Ages 10-up.
