Finding Grace in the Magic When Albert Thweatt began working the night shift in his new job as a paramedic, he realized he would be missing something important. The nightly, family devotionals he had always participated in with his wife and two sons now had to be done without him several nights a week. He hated that he had to miss this special time with his family, so he decided to do something about it. He began writing and emailing devotionals to his wife to be read and discussed with the family. He centered each of these devotionals around one of his favorite subjects and one he knew his family would enjoy as well: Walt Disney World. Disney Devotionals is a collection of 100 daily devotionals each based on a Walt Disney World ride, show, or other attraction.

One Day at Disney: Meet the People Who Make the Magic Across the Globe (Disney Editions Deluxe) by Bruce Steele
Publisher: Disney Editions
Discover what it's like to report to work every day for The Walt Disney Company. Step behind the scenes to immerse yourself in one "ordinary" day at Disney. In addition to the book, the Disney+ team was on hand to capture stories along the way. A full-length documentary and 52 short-form episodes expand the profiles and delve deeper into the essence of what it's like to be a Disney cast member. On a Thursday in 2019, a small army of photographers and videographers scattered across the globe to capture what goes on beyond those tantalizing "Cast Members Only" doors - whether eavesdropping on historic endeavors or typical tasks. All the photos in this book were taken on that single Thursday, beginning early in Tokyo and following the sun around the world through Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, Madrid, the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and dozens of places throughout the United States. More than 40 hours after it began, the day ended as the sun set on the Aulani resort in Hawaii. On that day, some 80 Cast Members agreed to open up their workshops, dressing rooms, kitchens, cubicles, TV studios, labs, locomotive engines - and some even more surprising and diverse work spaces. They also shared their stories: childhood dreams and chapters, career pivots and triumphs, workaday hurdles and joys. It was just a day in the life, as extraordinary as any other day at Disney. As any Cast Member can tell you, a Disney job is less a destination than a limitless journey. And for just One Day at Disney, we can all tag along for the ride.
