T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – POP Century Room Renovation Nearing Completion – Check Out The Finished Product!

A few weeks ago I wrote about the renovation that is currently underway at Disney’s Pop Century Resort (Check out the “Before” and “In Progress” Photos Here)

Looks like they are really making headway on the project – as there are some rooms that are fully done! Check it out:POPFinished

What do you think of the new design? Does it inspire you to run out and book a trip for 2018?

I personally wasn’t sure about the design at first – but I think that’s just because I was so used to the *old* room design that it was a shock to see Disney go for something this minimalist! I like it I think – and since we might stay there next year I will get to possibly check it out in person!

TODAY IS THE DAY (For 2018 Disney World Bookings, That Is!)

Disney World Lovers, REJOICE – as today is the day many of you have been waiting for! Historically, Disney releases vacation package information/booking ability for the following year sometime in June, and this year it is June 20th (TODAY!)

The past few years this day hasn’t really meant much to me, as I wasn’t planning a Disney World vacation in the coming year – but since we are (finally!) Headed Back to WDW in 2018, I am VERY excited about this day indeed. Plus – I love to make lists and budgets and plan things – so I know I will be heading over to Disney World’s Website today to price out my vacations (plural – both real and the dream version where we stay a Deluxe Resort and have VIP Passes…hey, it’s fun to play pretend sometimes, right?)

Happy Booking!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – POP Century Gets A Modern Update

One of the ways Disney keeps people coming back to their Parks and Resorts again and again is by keeping things fresh – changing stuff up, implementing new and exciting things for guests to experience. And over time, even hotel rooms can get stale and boring – so Disney is always continually working on remodels/refurbishments of not just rides and attractions, but of the Resort hotel rooms, too!

PopRoom1

Currently, Disney’s Pop Century Resort is undergoing a major re-model – and the room design is changing A LOT – above is the “Before” pic (aka how the rooms currently look), and below are some shots of a room in the process of being re-done:

Pop room2Pop room3Poproom4Poproom5

I honestly was shocked when I saw these pics – what a change from the standard Value Resort rooms we have come to know and love! The new rooms will feature laminate floors (bye, carpet!), and standard rooms will now feature a Queen bed and a pull-down full sized bed. Obviously these are “work in progress” photos – so I am sure there will be more décor and other touches to come – as they just recently started the work, and will be working on it for the next year with a target completion date of May 2018

What do you think of the new room design? Personally – I hope they add some more décor and other stuff to it – it’s SO plain as is, but I am excited to see the finished product, and I love how much effort Disney always puts into re-designing things, to make things even better for it’s guests!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Land Means New FOOD!

I recently wrote about the newest expansion opening this week at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Pandora: The World Of Avatar – an immersive land that includes new rides and attractions, and it of course also includes new FOOD (which, if I’m being honest, is about 75% the reason I would even go anywhere ever – is for the food)

Check out what Pandora has to offer for your palette:

PandoraFood1

“Pods” – Steamed buns filled with either a cheeseburger mixture or vegetable curry, and served with root veggie chips and a veggie slaw. At breakfast time you can get them filled with eggs, bacon and spinach!

Pandorafood4

“Build Your Own” Bowls start with a base of quinoa, potato hash, rice, or kale salad, and then topped with a protein – beef, chicken, fish, or tofu, and the sauce of your choice – onion chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette, or herb dressing

Pandorafood2

This amazingly beautiful dessert is a blueberry cream cheese mousse topped with passionfruit curd

PandoraFood3

I am a big fan of boba – the little gelatin like balls found in bubble tea – so I will definitely want to try one of these new frozen drinks!

I can’t wait to see and do everything that Pandora has to offer – and I am especially looking forward to all the TASTES it will have to share, too!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: FINALLY Headed Back To WDW!

My husband and I have been talking for a while now about the best time to bring our son to experience the Magic of Walt Disney World for the first time – and I think we finally landed on Fall 2018 – he will just have turned 4, which is when I went for the first time. To say I am excited is an understatement – not only is a vacation must needed, it’s MUCH wanted too! It’s been a while since I have been to Disney – and while I have been keeping up on the goings-on and such, I know that there will be some BIG changes in store for me – and here are the two I am most excited about:

SWland2SWland1

Star Wars Land – this is the largest ever single-themed land expansion to ever break ground at the Disney Parks, and the opening technically isn’t set to be until sometime in 2019, but I personally am keeping my fingers crossed for an early soft opening, or perhaps portions of it opening up before that so we can check it out while we are there! It will be a totally immersive experience, and you can even have the chance to step aboard the Millennium Falcon and pilot it – eek! How awesome!

Avatar2Avatar3

Pandora – World of Avatar – This land is slated to open later this month at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and it celebrated the “Magic Of Nature” – with a journey through the rainforest, and much more!

I can’t wait to check these both out – and to experience everything else Disney has to offer – both new and classic!

TGIF!
