Are you as excited as me about the Art of Animation Resort that will feature a large number of family suites? It will definitely fill a great need for large families (and those who just like a little more room) visiting Walt Disney World.

One of my family’s favorite performing groups, the Dragon Legend Acrobats will end their nearly 25-year run in early 2011 and say goodbye to the China pavilion at Epcot. I will really miss seeing these young kids performing their amazing feats. But a tiny part of me really hopes they’ll all get a chance to play and be normal kids now too!
