The Disnelyand Quest by Matt Ainsworth

Title: The Disneyland Quest
Author: Matt Ainsworth
Genre: Fiction
Reading Level: Ages 13 and up

The Disneyland Quest is about two teenage boys and a six-year-old girl teaming up on a quest through Disneyland to solve clues and unlock a vault to win money and lifetime passes.  The quest involves some interesting tidbits about Disneyland and its history.  Along the way they also have to deal with others trying to steal their insights to win the prize themselves.

The plot is somewhat predictable, but there is still a decent amount of tension to make the story interesting, especially for those that find the setting of Disneyland intriguing.  However, there are some plot elements that some may find odd or even inappropriate.  This includes the kids meeting because their parents are dating and the adults putting the kids in a separate hotel room from them.  There is also some swearing, but it is often scolded by the mom and clearly presented as being considered unacceptable.

Overall The Disneyland Quest can be a good book to motivate Disney parks fans to read.  It can also be fun for those with an upcoming Disneyland trip.  The predictable plot and ending may not be the best, but the clues can still be interesting to work out, especially when the obvious is not always where the clues lead.
