About the Book

Queen team Jeffrey Epstein and Eddie Shapiro help queer travelers discover the Disney theme parks in this must-have guidebook. With a blend of wit and Cruella-like cattiness, Epstein and Shapiro rate the rides, shows, and attractions and offer advice on everything from fun “Fairy Facts” of behind-the-scenes park trivia and the surrounding gay nightlife to candid tips on where to steal a private moment with a loved one. Find out the authors’ “top picks” and what rates as “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

Also profiling Disney’s overseas parks in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Paris, as well as the cruiseline, Epstein and Shapiro are the clever friends you wish you could take with you on all your trips. Included in the book are maps, photos, and sidebars.
Jeffrey Epstein
About Jeffrey Epstein
Jeffrey Epstein is a native of Newton, Massachusetts. After attending Northfield Mount Hermon prep school, he headed to the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University to pursue drama—the theatrical, not emotional, kind. And for a few years he tried acting…and event planning and gym management. After none of those panned out, he settled on the nice stable life of a freelance writer, mainly covering soap operas-a medium for which he never had any particular interest. After moving to Los Angeles, he began writing for such publications as InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Movieline, and Teen People. He served for nearly seven years as West Coast Editor at Out magazine, and he freelanced for the late and must-missed Disney Magazine. Currently, he is the Entertainemnt Editor at Us Weekly. He enjoys movies, television, theater, and, oh right, Disney theme parks.
Eddie Shapiro
About Eddie Shapiro
Though Eddie Shapiro's writing and theater criticism have been published in periodicals across the country, he spent much of his life as an actor, performing off-Broadway, regionally, and touring the country in five separate one-man musicals for children. He has, in fact, done more children's theater than he can remember but chances are, he's scarred your kid. For several years Eddie has been working for AIDS Walk in both Los Angeles and New York, most recently serving as Event Manager. He is a graduate of Phillips Academy, Andover, NYU's Tisch Scool of the Arts, and Circle in the Square Theatre School. He is also the coauthor of The Actor's Encyclopedia of Casting Directors, but his royalty percentage is tiny, so you don't have to buy that one.
