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!

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!

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:

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 – The Most Important Meal Of The Day!

Walt Disney World has some of the BEST FOOD I have ever had the privelege of tasting – everything is prepared fresh using the best ingredients, and it really shows in the final product.

Breakfast is no exception, they really go above and beyond at the Parks and Resorts to make sure you have plenty of options to choose from so you can start your day off right and fuel up for a day at the Parks!

TGIF Bfast CP One of my personal fave breakfast spots is the Crystal Palace – a character breakfast spot in the Magic Kingdom featuring Winnie The Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet. The food is amazing here – especially “Pooh’s Breakfast Lasagna” – which is essentially a warm berry bread pudding, and they also serve anything and everything breakfast-related – my fave are the Mickey waffles!

TGIF Bfast TuskerI tried Tusker House for the first time last year, and I have to say, I was impressed! Hosted by Donald and friends (decked out in their safari gear!), this African inspired meal serves up the classics as well as unique items like their bobotie (a spiced egg based casserole which is also served at Boma!)

TGIF Bfast POPIf you’re not in the mood for a sit down meal that early in the day, you can always grab something at your WDW Resort, like this freshly made waffle and bacon from the POP Century Resort

TGIF Bfast CRollIf the Magic Kingdom is your early morning Park of choice (it is for me!) then let your nose lead you over to the amazing smells coming from the Main Street Bakery, and grab a coffee and one of these bad boys – a warm, soft, gooey cinnamon roll

….Ok now not only do I miss Disney, but I’m starving. Breakfast time!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Exploring POP Century

Walt Disney World has TONS of amazing Resorts to choose from, and they even have a great selection of cheaper, or Value Resorts.

Last April my family and I stayed at WDW’s Pop Century Resort, a Value Resort with a nostalgic “remember when” theme, including oversized memorabilia from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s.

We just had to explore all the fun things at the Resort, so check out some of the great stuff we found!

Twister, giant toys, a computer themed pool – this place has it all!

Maybe this inspired you to book your next WDW stay at Pop Century? We really loved it – the rooms, the food court, and the Resort itself were all amazing, and I will more than likely stay here many more times!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Smile For The Mickey Camera!

One of my favorite things to do while at Disney World is to take pictures, of anything and everything, so that I can capture all the amazing things we did and it’s a great way to relive the trip once we are back at home and in our post-Disney depression (yes, that really is a thing!)

My husband is also very much into taking pictures, but while I prefer digital, he is old school – he shoots exclusively on film, and has a rather large camera collection with some pretty cool cameras (remember film? I do – barely!)

One of the cameras he and I were both VERY excited to purchase was this Mick-A-Matic camera, circa 1970. It takes 126/instamatic film (which is pretty hard to come by nowadays since it hasn’t been manufactured since the 80’s!), and the picture quality isn’t the best, but let’s be honest – it’s all about the shape in this case!

 

We strolled down Main Street taking photos with this one day, and we got quite the reaction from Donald Duck himself, who was signing autographs in Frontierland – he shook his fist at it and was pretty angry that we weren’t using a Donald camera! He only calmed down and gave us the thumbs up when we said we promised to get a Donald camera for next time!

It’s a pretty cool addition to his camera collection, and it was definitely a blast to get to use it at the home of Mickey-Disney World!

We stayed at POP Century for this trip, and it is full of nostalgic memorabilia from the last 50 years. Behind the check in desk is this picture, and we thought it was pretty cool that our camera was famous (well kind of ha!)

 

 

 

It was a great find and while Donald might not like it, it reminds us of the Happiest Place On Earth!
