A series of novels written by Ridley Pearson, [[HeAlsoDid otherwise known for writing horror and suspense novels]] as well as another {{Disney}} series ''PeterAndTheStarcatchers'', that take place in and around [[DisneyThemeParks Walt Disney World]].

Finn Whitman is an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent who lives in Orlando near Walt Disney World. He and four other teenagers from the area - [[TheChick Willa]], a shy girl with a love for animals, [[TheLancer Maybeck]], a snarky distrusting boy, [[TheBigGuy Charlene]], an athletic girl, and [[TheSmartGuy Philby]], a homework loving boy - are selected to be turned into [=DHIs=], holographic hosts for the Magic Kingdom that would give prerecorded speeches to guests. However, soon after they find themselves being transported into the park at night when they fall asleep. There they learn from an elderly Imagineer named Wayne that they were chosen specifically to stop the plot of the Overtakers, a group of villains apparently led by [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]]. The Overtakers scheme to take over the park and beyond, and since they start out InvisibleToNormals, the Imagineers needed someone to stop them. Along the way, they have to deal with two mysterious girls: Amanda, a schoolmate of Finn's who has an interest in him, and Jez, a {{goth}} like girl. Both of them appear to be hiding something.

There are currently six books in the series, with a planned total of seven.
