Ears the News: Memorial Day 2016

Memorial Day 2016 Edition
Disney Vacation Club has announced the name of its new development at the Wilderness Lodge resort.  Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is the name of what will become the 14th Disney Vacation Club Resort.  As part of the new naming, the original Disney Vacation Club property at Wilderness Lodge, the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, will be renamed Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.Also announced was that a new name will be coming to the redesigned Hidden Springs Pool area.The Pangani Forest Exploration Trail at Disney's Animal Kingdom will soon be returning to its original name - Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail.  The exhibit was renamed Pangani back in July 1998, to better represent the fact that the trail was not just home to gorillas.  Eighteen years later, Disney has decided to go back to the original, and from Memorial Day Weekend, it will once again be known as Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail.

Are you married? I sure am! I married Mike about 7 years ago, and almost daily feel like I must be the luckiest lady alive!

Any children? While we don't have any of our own, we have about 10 God-kids.  Our goal is to take or go with them to a Disney Resort every 5 years and so far we are succeeding in that goal. Now that I write it down, I wonder if that's why people keep asking us...

Favorite vacation destination? If we aren't counting Disney, then Seattle, WA. Not only does it have my sister and niece to draw me in, but each time I go I find new delightful treats! I'm an unashamed foodie, and the Seattle culinary scene is a dream.
