Book Review: The Key to the Kingdom

I'm sure you've heard me mention a million few times how much I love Disney World. That is why I was so happy to review The Key to the Kingdom by Jeff Dixon.

The Story: Grayson Hawkes learns how imaginative and elaborate Walt Disney World is when he accepts an invitation one sunny day from a trusted friend landing him in a world he never knew existed. Barely escaping a late night encounter, he finds himself desperately trying to solve a mysterious disappearance while trying to stay ahead of those who are chasing him. He navigates through the kingdom where knowledge of seemingly unimportant Disney facts and some divine help are the only way he can discover the lock that can only be opened by an ancient key. His world becomes even more complicated when he is captivated by mysterious woman, causing him to make a series of choices that takes his faith to the brink. Within the walls of Walt Disney World is more mystery than one imagination can contain. Here Disney Trivia is not a game; and the ancient key is the only way out!

The Key to the Kingdom makes Disney World seem so much more mysterious.  I eagerly followed along on Hawkes adventure as he followed clues that led him through the parks.  It is so cool because I can picture a lot of the places mentioned in the book.  However, I learned so many more interesting things I didn't know, that I will look for on my next trip.

I think anyone who loves mysteries or Disney, would love this book!  It was fun to read, I even think my teenager will like it.

You can buy it at Deep River Books or here.  You can find The Key to the Kingdom online at

Note from the author Jeff Dixon:

Walt Disney World is a magical place and the chance to weave a story in and around The Magic Kingdom was great fun.

The amazing thing about Walt Disney World is that you never really see it all. No matter how much you see and experience there is always more waiting for you on your next visit.

Thank you for your kind words about the adventure of Hawk and friends through the Central Florida area. It was my desire to create a story that would ignite the imagination of the reader and take them on a journey of suspense and mystery, mixed with a few thrills and surprises before they arrived at the last page.

As a Disney fan I hope that you get the chance to take the book with you to theme parks and look for the clues yourself. It is amazing what you find when you look at the details hidden in themed resort.

I appreciate your thoughts and your review. I hope others will take the adventure, solve the mystery, and have a good time unraveling The Key To The Kingdom.
