The CoCo Key Hotel and Water Resort opened this week in Orlando, and my family and I went to check it out. While we were there, the folks organizing the grand opening asked the Theme Park Kid to help cut the ribbon. She got to go down the pink slide.
When she got out of the water, she immediately ran up and asked, “Mom, did I win?” She thought the ribbon meant it was a race!
Though the new resort is miles away from Cinderella Castle, this property played a significant role in Disney history. I wrote a guest post about it over at The Disney Blog:
At Traveling Mamas, I shared more information on the new Sesame Street children’s area at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Have you planned your summer visit yet?
And at Gadling:
- Are Disney’s buses dangerous?
- Walt Disney World offers free tickets for stranded European travelers
- Rare find: Cheap, tasty hotel food in Orlando
- Southwest Airlines introduces Florida-themed plane and a Florida fare sale
It’s a busy travel week for me. I will be in Lexington, Louisville, Orlando, Tampa and Austin between today and Saturday. Whew! The best way to see if I survive is to follow me on Twitter.
