Too long and repetitive

This book really should have ended after the first hour. I can sum up this book in three sentences. Disney focuses on detail. They built service into their business model and executed service areas with success. And finally they continuously improve all service areas and potential service areas. Everything else is repetitive and unnecessary. There's too much story telling about Disney and not enough emphasis on business application in other industries.

Good for Disney Philosophers

Content is good, the audio version is dry. Recommend reading this one on your own.

Such Potential

It was repetitive, full of lists and not great examples, and overall boring. It was very dry and I found myself wishing it were over.

90% Disney Brag, 10% Practical Info

This book should have been a 10-minute YouTube video. There are a couple of useful practical tools to learn. The rest felt like I was being talked into going to Disneyland for my next vacation.

would recommend to everyone...

This book was recommended to me as part of a work project relating to the development of a customer service model. the book not only helped me better understand my project but customer service in general. Never before have I wanted to visit a Disney park. after reading this book I cannot wait to see Disney's methods in real life. the narrator was also great.

Too the point!

I love how the book gave a few real world scenarios and got to the point about how to do it the Disney way. Other books have soooo much fluff and the book could be half as long.

Great Story, little direction

It was an enjoyable book about the Disney process but gave less direction/steps to take action on.

dry material

It is very hard to rate such a "instructional" but it was a lot easier to get through by listening!
