Quotes & Awards

  • “It’s the finest collection of underground WDW stuff ever assembled and is a true bright light in a world gone bland…Buy this thing and treat the naughty side of your brain to some adventure.”

    Mesa Verde Times

  • It's the finest collection of underground WDW stuff ever assembled and is a true bright light in a world gone bland. . . . Buy this thing and treat the naughty side of your brain to some adventure. Hoot Gibson, Mesa Verde Times
  • “With additional blurbs that include ‘The anarchist cookbook of Disney travel guides’ and ‘Utterly unauthorized tips, tricks and scams for your WDW vacation,’ the reader knows that ‘Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride’ has nothing on this approach to Disney World. From the best places to have sex and which recreational drugs work best on Space Mountain to when it will speed up your ride wait time if you pretend to be disabled, this guide is certainly not the standard traveler’s aid. While Kinsey’s advice borders on the immoral and the illegal, with an abundance of profanity, this irreverent tour into the enchanted kingdom won’t be boring. Verdict: For collections that already have the basic tour guides and could use a very spicy addition.”

    Library Journal

  • “Pack the trunks and leave the kids at Grandma’s because The Dark Side is about to make your next Disney vacation the best one ever!”

    Chris Mitchell, author of Cast Member Confidential

    " Not for people looking for pixie dust and mickey bars but I loved it. It was a refreshing realistic look at my favorite mouse. I can tell Mr. Kinsey is actually a fan and does not me ill will in this book. I may have viewed some parts differently if this was not the case. I don't think I have a guts to go into the utilidors but I love living vicariously through the people who have. Thanks for sharing "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cindy Jeffers | 8/23/2013

    " There were a few tips on how to save money, mostly swearing, sophmoric stories, etc. Not worth the price. "

    " loved ittttt could have done without the gross bug/ reptile pics though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 6/12/2013

    " I found the information to be entertaining, and pretty accurate. Having worked at Disney, his descriptions of the tunnels were spot on. In fact, it's quite possible we crossed paths down there a few times! I'm looking forward to using some of the tips on getting cheaper rooms. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick Hammond | 6/1/2013

    " This was a fun quick read. While far from being a book that changed my life, reading it was an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy | 4/4/2013

    " This book wasn't what I was expecting. It was too personal and commercial for my taste. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey | 2/27/2013

    " Overall Dark Side of Disney was a good book but some of the things I was shocked and surprised at. I enjoyed the behind the scenes stories! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marta | 12/10/2012

    " The author describes a few adventures he has had in Disney World in restricted areas, but the writing style is not very interesting. He tries to shock you, but it is not all that much fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 9/27/2012

    " I really liked this book, but sort of felt like an idiot when I planned my own Disney stay without reading this first :). Great ideas and tips and great odd way of telling them. Thanks Mr. Kinsey. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Casey Starnes | 8/4/2012

    " I think I would have liked this more if it were about DisneyLAND instead of WORLD. But, there were a few interesting tid bits here and there. Some of it was just plain useless. IE: Where to have sex in the parks. Really? Whose watching the kids, people?! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Lynn | 6/30/2012

    " While not my favorite guide book ever this is a hilarious ancedote filled guide to all the scandalous things and R rated activities you could possibly get caught up in on property. "
