Next Exit Magic Kingdom: Florida Accidentally : Florida - land of pink flamingos, melanoma, the blue rinse, gang warfare and the electric chair - was a place that Rory MacLean knew nothing about and had no intention of visiting. That was until a mistake caused the wrong newspaper to be delivered to his door, and twenty-four hours later he found himself bound for the Sunshine State. Abandoning himself to the winds of chance, MacLean stumbled across an alternative Florida. He spent time in the Psychic Center of the World, met the Saint of Palaka and Wanda Flip, the head mermaid of Weeki Wachee. He paid $5 to drink from the Fountain of Youth and visited the Garden of Eden. His final destination was the Magic Kingdom where Mickey Mouse can be best man at your "Fairy Tale Wedding." Next Exit Magic Kingdom shatters every stereotypical image you have ever associated with Florida. Entertaining and warm, curious and occasionally disturbing, this is a story of the places that chance can take you to and a portrait of the many sides of Florida, where dreams can be made as quickly as they are broken.
