Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia!


Did You Know:
The newly opened Art of Animation Resort was originally intended to be a second half of Pop Century? It was originally going to be called "The Legendary Years."  Pop Century had many problems of it's own, being built at the beginning of the recession when tourism in Florida was dropping.  The original opening date was December 2001, and the half that we know today as Pop Century opening in December 2003.  

Instead of finishing The Legendary Years, they created the Art of Animation.  I think the Legendary Years sounds pretty cool, but I love AoA and can't wait to visit it!
Thanks to Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse for this great pic!
