Happy Valentine's Day, Disney Style

Nick found this silver locket and gave it to me for Valentine's Day. Another sneaky, wonderful, romantic way to get more Disney into the house! He, of course, knew I would love it; as he saw me drooling over the necklaces at Disney World the last time we were there. He found this piece on Ebay. There was no history included with it. Can anyone out there date this piece based on the style and markings? I was thinking perhaps the early eighties when lockets had a big resurgence, but who knows?

So what do you do with a locket? Put a photo of your favorite guy in it!

What Do You Do When the Weather is Bad?

Well, what do you do when the weather is bad? Especially if you are on vacation. Usually one would don the plastic ponchos and head out to the parks. It's go time no matter what, right? But now in Downtown Disney there's a place where the family can gather and have some fun, out of the dreary weather. It's called Splittsville. It is a family entertainment zone, there's something for everyone. They have 30 bowling lanes, pool tables, bars, there is live music, dancing, outdoor patio dining and of course, upscale food offerings, including 2 sushi bars!


We decided to try the sushi (yeah, that's right, bowling alley sushi) and pizza with the whole wheat crust. Both were extremely good. The group sitting next to us had the nachos and cheese fries and I can tell you that those two platters could have fed an army! The portions are very generous, the prices are reasonable for the food and the bowling. That's all we we had time to check out. Splittville's hours are 10:00am to 2:00am.
