Does anybody have some good recommendations for books about Disneyland (or World, but prefer Land) history? Looking for anything that can explain how the park has developed over the years and the little known trivia. John and Kevin are always bringing up little factoids about the parks and I love hearing them.
I'm also looking for a picture book that I can have out to look at when I'm missing Disney, any thoughts?

I haven't read this myself, but I hear it's good.
The Disneyland Encyclopedia
Also, there is the Imagineers Field Guide to Disneyland
And I personally want to get this one...

Not a book but....
take a look at www.yesterland.com. Lots of really good info about "extinct" attractions and how the park has developed.

Spinning Disney's World by Charles Ridgeway Charlie started working for Disneyland right at the start and was the PR guy for everything in the early years, including the development of WDW. Great view behind the scenes!
In Service to the Mouse by Jack Lindquist. Jack was President of Disneyland and tells his story. Also an excellent look at how things came to be.
