When Disney comes looking for five teenagers to serve as actors for a new technology-Daylight Hologram Images, or DHIs-there is more to it than meets the eye. Strange things have been happening inside the Florida park: parts from one ride are found mysteriously moved to another; in the Fantasmic! show, the dragon unexplainably triumphs over Mickey; little blips in story lines and "offstage" antics by characters trouble managers. Finn Whitman, a middle-schooler, goes to sleep one night and has the dream of a lifetime: he "wakes up" inside Disney World as his DHI character, a glowing hologram. He meets an old man there, Wayne, who claims to be one of the original Imagineers and explains to Finn that he "and your friends" have a mission to save the park from forces that humans can neither see nor hear. Not believing his dream, but not totally discounting it, Finn, back in real life, sets out to find the four other kids who were chosen to be DHIs and in doing so he learns an eerie fact: he is not alone in this "dream." The others have had similar experiences. What if this is for real?

  • Very good book!

    I absolutely loved this book! Ridley Pearson did a very good job of appealing this book to Disney fans of all ages. This book gave readers and excellent view of Disney world that they had never seen before in another book. He did a very good job of showing Disney after dark. I also loved the idea of Disney villains called Overtakers disrupting daily business at the parks and try to gain control of Disney world. Pearson also did an excellent job of incorporating a group of kids called dhi’s (Disney host interactive or daylight holographic imaging) to be holographic tour guides of the Disney parks. I also liked the concept of doubling the usage of the dhi’s to fight the Overtakers. I highly recommend this book; it is a very excellent read.
