Pop Culture

Living in Florida comes with certain perks, and for a Disney-phile like myself, being able to get in the car and drive to the Orlando theme parks in just a few hours is definitely one of them.

I’m meeting my niece CB and her family for a weekend at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. CB’s family is flying in from Texas and won’t be here until late tonight, but I checked into my room in the Pop Century resort at 1:30 this afternoon and have already been Disneyfied.

   
    
   
The Pop Century Resort is divided by decades. Fittingly, I was booked into the 50’s section and found myself in a retro style hotel room reminiscent of those I stayed in with my family when I was a child. The modern flat screen TV is the only decorative nod to the current decade. 

   
   
I’m relishing the idea of a room to myself for three nights. 

CB, her husband Lord Jeff, and their two children will be staying just across the lagoon at the Art of Animation Resort. I scoped out their hotel this afternoon to see how long it will take me to walk it in the morning. Of course I kept getting sidetracked, so the walk is either ten minutes or an hour and 20 minutes give or take an hour.

These photos are from their resort:

  
    
    

As soon as CB calls in the morning I’ll join her family at The Art of Animation so we can ride a bus to the Magic Kingdom. I’m a few months away from turning 60, but I feel like a giddy kid. 

M-I-C (See you real soon!)

K-E-Y (Why? Because I have a ticket!) 

M-O-U-S-E.

Now if the kids next door will settle down, I’m going to sleep. 

Peace, people!

  1. Glad to hear that when it came to working out how long it took, you managed to narrow it down a bit. Incidentally, that Baloo the Bear is enormous. At that size, shouldn’t be be fighting Godzilla or something? 🙂
