The BookViral Review:

Steve Stanton draws his readers into the wonderful world of Disney in his biography ‘The Year of a Million Dreams’, which tracks his behind-the-scenes experience over one year in the early 2000s. 

With fascinating detail, he recalls every part of the exceptional opportunity of spending a year working for Disney, from the first brave but terrifying moments of securing a visa to hair-brained adventures exploring beyond the borders of Disneyland and into neighbouring states-some of them nearly fatal!

If you are a fan, you will be delighted by Stanton’s revelations, as he tracks both the challenges and joys of his year, revealing interesting details behind the fairytale façade, and the lengths the company will go to make the experience special for every young child and adult alike.

However, the most touching parts of this book are those where Stanton describes his own part in creating the joy and magic that is Disney, and his blossoming relationship with his now husband, Chris. Stanton reveals his highly empathic and gentle nature in his narrative, drawing his reader into his warm and inclusive dialogue.

Stanton’s delivery is friendly, with an easy and humorous banter which renders it a pleasurable read. Though not overly descriptive, his imagery is nevertheless effective, creating vivid pictures of his many escapades and of his surroundings within the Disneyland environment, which serves as a great advertisement. 

Stanton’s love affair with Disney not only entranced him but also led him to the other love of his life, with whom he has forged a deep and lasting bond, thus reflecting his chosen title beautifully. Charming images throughout, culminating in the marriage of Steve and Chris, lend an attention-grabbing element to his biography, as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.

An entertaining and interesting read, especially for the many fans of Disney.
