Here's the plot summary from Amazon, brought to my attention from another DISer.

When Disney Imagineers installed hologram guides for the Magic Kingdom, using teenage models they had no idea the technology might backfire. But backfire it did: some nights when the kids go to sleep, they wake up in one of the Disney parks as a hologram.

With the adventures set forth in the first books now behind them, Kingdom Keepers 3: Disney In Shadow follows the five teens, Finn, Philby, Willa, Charlene, and Maybeck as they search to find Wayne, their mentor and head Imagineer who has mysteriously gone missing. Concerned Wayne has been abducted by the Overtakers-Disney villains, who along with other Disney characters, take over the parks when the turnstiles stop spinning, and want desperately to steer the parks to a far darker place-the five kids pick up a major clue from a close friend, Jez, whose dreams (nightmares, really) often accurately predict the future.

The very few clues from Jez's dream lead the kids into Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot--through imaginary worlds that become real, by imaginary kids who are real. Each clue seems tied to the last, and with the stakes growing ever higher, what starts out as a puzzle ends up as a fight for their lives. Through a transparent paper box, a quest for a sword, rides on Soarin' and Maelstrom, life-and-death encounters with giant snakes, and a devious Maleficent, the Kingdom Keepers not only begin to decipher deeper meanings to the clues, but discover new truths about themselves and their ever-growing friendships.

I believe Ridley stated on his Twitter that Disney has postponed Kingdom Keepers 3 until spring of 2010. He doesn't know why, but they have.

A contest announcement from the D23 website (d23.disney.go.com/sweeps/kingdomkeepers/):
D23's Kingdom Keepers Contest
In honor of the release of Kingdom Keepers III: Disney in Shadow, D23 Members have the chance to win one of 23 copies of the new book signed by author Ridley Pearson.

The incredibly popular book series follows five teenagers - the Kingdom Keepers - who have been transformed into holograms (DHIs) that thrill guests as they guide them through the parks. In truth, the Imagineers created the DHIs to protect Disney's theme parks from the Overtakers, classic Disney villains, who are trying to seize the parks and use them for their own evil agendas. The Kingdom Keepers book series follows our heroes on action-packed, behind-the-scenes adventures in the magical world of the Disney parks.

Now guests can enjoy Kingdom Keepers online as with at Thekingdomkeepers.com where players can unlock the map and clues provided in the endpapers to defeat the Overtakers!

All you have to do, in 300 words or less, is tell us what adventures you'd have if you could spend the night in a Disney park. It's as easy as that!


You can enter the contest at this link (http://d23.disney.go.com/sweeps/kingdomkeepers/).
