Let's Do the Time Warp Again

Hey, a book I ordered from Amazon back in May finally shipped. The book was listed as being released on June 1, but apparently was delayed and delayed. Today, I see that the book was shipped (listed as shipping August 28 - why, yes, that is today).

The delivery estimate is Jun 10, 2005 - Jun 13, 2005. Yep, they never updated that after the order.

The book, by the way is "The Imagineering Field Guide to Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World". So, I'll be able to peruse the book prior to our WDW vacation, which starts October 2 - just over a month from now!

Book Description:
The first in a series of pocket-sized paperbacks will answer the question, "What would it be like to walk through the Disney Theme Parks with an Imagineer by your side?" The Imagineering Field Guide to The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World provides that experience: pointing out details and telling stories, back stories, and Imagineering insights never before heard, condensed into a portable, easily-referenced park guide. You'll never spend time at Walt Disney World the same way again.

  • On further inspection, I see Amazon finally updated the release date in the description to September 1. The delivery date is still in June, though.

  • I had a similar situation happen with an oversized, two-volume, hardcover slipcase edition of the first League of Extraordinary Gentlemen story which was shipped months after the dates listed in the info que.
