    Hey Donald and Bonnie! Thank you for this tour. We have been meaning to get over there but haven't made the time yet. Looks pretty cool. I always enjoy reading your stuff and am grateful for you posting it.

    We as a family have not been to this resort, but on our last trip, we were staying at Pop Century for a night. My mom doesn’t have any sense of direction, and so, when attempting to get from our room in the 1950s to the food court, she disappeared. Luckily, she had her cell phone and we managed to finally meet up. As we were eating, she was asking what the Little Mermaid and Cars had to do with the decades theme of our hotel. Somehow, she had gotten herself so lost that she actually crossed the bridge over to this complex. We got to tease her about that for the rest of the trip.

    That's pretty funny! I'd wonder if she didn't just walk the whole path around the lake since she ended up seeing both LM and Cars. LM is pretty close to 50's in reality (maybe even closer than the food court for Pop, depending on which building your room was in- but I'm not sure if the northern connecting path is affected by the construction for the Gondolas).

    And thanks Donald and Bonnie for posting the tour! I stayed here once in the LM section, but I was only there for a day and didn't wander as far down as the Cars and Nemo sections, so it was good to see that. I have a friend with a family of 5 and he favors the suites here as a really good option for enough beds/bathrooms.

    Interesting thing on the heritage of the re-purposed buildings, if you look at Google Earth, you can tell that 2 of the LM buildings have the same roof shading as the Pop Century buildings. I'm pretty sure those 2 are the ones that were built before construction was halted on the originally planned Pop expansion. I'm guessing that's also why they kept that section in the same room format as Pop, just building a third building to complete the section when they built it as AoA.
