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?

    In my opinion, this book had some positives and negatives, so I'll be writing this review in that format. Positives: This book has a really cool, unique plot, not like anything I've seen before. Also, there aren't really any moments in the book where things aren't full of action, meaning you won't get too bored while reading this. Negatives: Since the book went quickly, it missed a few points that would have really helped to make things make sense. See, the author never really explains how things happen. The characters just set a plan to go somewhere and end up there, but there's no in-between. Also, the characters don't have much depth to them, and the girl characters are usually overlooked! There isn't much attention put on them! Also, this book was quite confusing. I think since it was quite a quick read for me, that stopped it from being anywhere near as confusing as some books I've read, but still, it's just not one of my favorites. Overall, I was expecting a lot more from this book. I've been wanting to read it for a while now, but I'm kinda disappointed. I must say though, Amanda and Finn would be a cute couple!

        This book is really awesome It's kinda cool to see what Disney looks like at night (well not see, hear) it's kind of like oh my god sometimes like when Micky mouse got caught on fire and he had to jump in the pool. And other times it's a little creepy but overall it's a cool and exited book and I think that the more I get into it the more I'll love it.

                      I got this book for my 12th birthday from one of my friends who is a huge fan of the series. At first I wasn’t so sure I’d like it, but boy was I wrong!! After I started it I couldn’t put the book down!! It’s really good book and it’s definitely one of my favorite reads. Full of mystery, action and suspense that will keep you reading until midnight!
