Acclaimed author Ridley Pearson visited the Walt Disney World Resort this week and signed copies of his latest book, “Kingdom Keepers III: Disney in Shadow.” Disney characters play a big role in his series of books so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see a few of them during his interview for the Disney Parks Blog.

Ridley also signed several of his bestselling novels, “Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark,” “Kingdom Keepers II: Disney At Dawn,” “Steel Trapp: The Challenge,” “Steel Trapp: The Academy,” and the novels from the Peter and the Starcatchers Saga.


  • Kingdom Keepers sounds like the kind of thing I would write…I should pick up a few copies! (I made up my own ‘epic Disney World aventures’ series called Kirakku, but this is almost like what would happen if Kirakku got published!!) :) :) :)

  • I have read the kingdom keepers series (so far) and have enjoyed it. I highly recomend kingdom keepers to all ages. From 5-80 years old! I have got my family to decide to go to WDW (and the other parks) on October 15, 2011! I am soooo excited to see the parks!!!

  • I wish there’d be a Kingdom Keepers Tour at Disney World that shows you all the places the KK came about, but that’d be too much behind the scene-ness for the group the books are targeted for.

  • Finished the book in 2 days. Loved it!

  • I finished the third on just yesturday it is a wonderful series and is highly recomended for any disney fan to read

  • Discovered this book (Kingdom Keepers) by chance and loved it. My 11yr old daughter is reading it now. So excited to find out there was a second one….and now a third!! I’ve had to borrow her copies of Peter and the Star catchers as well.
    I love all things Disney!

  • We have our copy, now if only my daughter would read faster so I can have it!!! Love the Kingdom Keepers! If books like these had been available when I was a kid I might have gotten my Dad to take to WDW before I was 20.

  • I love the Kingdom Keepers series and am very excited about number 3! When will it be released in the UK? EPCOT is my favourite park and I know it very well so am VERY excited about this one!! Thank you
