‘The Deadliest Cast Member’ by MouseWait’s Kelly Ryan Johns Interactive Book Series

November 28, 2012 Disney Interactive, Disney News No Comments

The Deadliest Cast Member by Kelly Ryan Johns

Kelly Johns developed MouseWait, which is one of the most popular Disneyland iPhone and Android apps in history. Now, he is taking MouseWait’s 100,000 plus community on an adventure with Jack Duncan, former SEAL Team Six member, billionaire tech-mogul, and Disney Legend. Part One of The Deadliest Cast Member was made available over the weekend for free on Amazon’s Kindle platform.

“My goal is to make this series an interactive adventure we can all go on together” said Kelly Johns.

Johns integrated a simple feedback form inside the novel that allows readers to submit their ideas and requests in regards to what they would like to see happen in the book series.

“It’s the same thing I did with MouseWait” said Johns, “I built MouseWait mostly on user feedback since we started in 2009 and people love it when you listen to them”

MouseWait for iPhone and Android is a free app that gives you accurate wait times and information on all attractions — even restaurants. It also gives people a live view of what’s happening at Disneyland through thousands of user-generated pictures and videos that stream through the mobile app and the web version of MouseWait. A massive community has developed around MouseWait. Many of these “MouseWaiters” as they call themselves have developed significant friendships as a result of the community, which is a phenomenon Johns says he couldn’t have predicted.You can see the MouseWait Story here.

Part One of the novel contains an in-depth description of Jack Duncan’s residence and life at the El Capitan Presidential Suite in the Grand Californian Hotel. Duncan moves to the Dream Suite when Johnny Depp comes into town and they ride Pirates of the Caribbean together. They also delve deep into the legend of Jean Lafitte, a nineteenth century pirate Walt Disney inserted as a central figure in New Orleans Square. Readers get the chance to sit with Walt Disney over coffee in his private apartment above the Fire House on Main Street USA in 1959 – and hear the excitement in his voice as Disneyland expands.

“I have a deep respect for Disneyland and all Cast Members past and present. My family has so many great memories there” said Johns who has been a Disneyland annual passholder for almost 20 years consecutively. “I want to immerse people in the enchanted world of Disneyland through a larger-than-life character who lives at the Resort with his family”

You don’t need a Kindle device to download the book. The free Kindle app is available on almost all smart phones including iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android. You can also download it to your PC or Mac.

The Deadliest Cast Member is free for an unspecified amount of time on Amazon and after that it will move to its regular price.
