After volunteering for four days during the Disney Marathon Weekend this January, we switched hotels and then spent several days in the parks. As always, we had a blast!
We stayed in a Disney hotel that was new for us – Disney’s Art of Animation.

As you can see, we stayed in the Little Mermaid Building.
It’s an Under the Sea bed!
And some scallop shell chairs.
This curtain separates the bedroom area from the vanity area.
We have an Ariel shower curtain!
The Little Mermaid Mirror.
At Animal Kingdom, we…
went on a safari…
found a lizard that could stick to walls…
listened to some interesting musicians (you can listen too if you like to the sitar and the harp)…
Rockin’ the harp.
and found some Hidden Mickeys!
See the Mickey to the left of the book?
At Epcot, we…
floated through the Disney greenhouses…
Monkey Puzzle Tree – seriously!
Yummy – Elliott loves okra!
watched our favorite Chinese acrobats…
How do they do it?
and searched for our own legacy.
We left a legacy!

Us at Epcot!
In the Magic Kingdom, we…
spun on the teacups until Elliott could no longer see straight…
Pretend you like it!
Kids in the cup.
raced like Andre Andretti…
Here we go!
What’s this hold-up?
Bringing in the new cars.
rode some horses around and around in a circle…
and flew through space in our favorite Astro Orbiter.
Ready to rock this universe!
And at Disney Studios we…
ate at a new old café…
The 50’s Prime Time Cafe.
It’s our living room!
And this is our kitchen. Let’s see what we can whip up…
Even the bathrooms are retro!
Ready for lunch!
Dig these curtains.
Now that’s a biiig piece of cake!
and feared for our lives as we were surrounded by storm troopers!
Twilight on Tatooine.
The main in black!
Storm troopers on parade.
We sure were exhausted by the end of that week!
