If you are like me, you can never get enough of Disney! Unfortunately, I do not get to go “home” as much as I would like to, so I have to dream about my favorite world. One way to immerse myself into the Disney universe is to read a lot of Disney books that take me to the magical land of princes, princesses, villians, and magic.
There are quite a few Disney-themed book series that I have enjoyed, and I thought I would share them with you! *Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.*
6 Disney-themed Book Series You Need to Read
The Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson
The Kingdom Keepers is a series of children’s novels written by American author Ridley Pearson. Its plot follows the adventures of five teens who, by day, are holographic hosts in the Disney Theme Parks. By night, they battle Disney villains to keep them from taking control of the parks, the Disney entertainment empire, and the world.
The Return by Ridley Pearson
The Return is a trilogy sequel to The Kingdom Keepers. In this series, we explore the fictional Imagineering school and the origins of the Overtakers, the books’ villains. This series travels back in time Disneyland’s opening day.
A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell
What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? What if the sleeping beauty never woke up? What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast? What if Ariel had never defeated Ursula? This series reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways.
Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Peter and the Starcatchers provides a backstory for the character Peter Pan, and serves as a prequel to J. M. Barrie’s novel Peter and Wendy.
Tales from the Haunted Mansion by Amicus Arcane
Welcome, foolish mortals, to Tales from the Haunted Mansion! Based on the attractions from the Disney Parks, each new book tells the story of one of the Haunted Mansion’s 999 ghosts. If readers are familiar with the ride, they’ll see elements of it throughout the entire story, from items straight out of the Mansion (are those pictures stretching?) to lyrics from the narration that is heard in each Doom Buggy.
Villians by Serena Valentino
We all know the stories of the Princesses, and yet this is only half the story. Why do the villians do what do they do? This series explores the dark side of the villians and tries to explain their motives.
