January 8, 2013: Elvis is "The King"

Are you registering to win your free trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland? Every day until January 31st, you can register to win the trip of your choice. You must register every day for your chance to win that day. Don’t miss out on your chance to get an all expenses paid vacation for four. Click below for your opportunity to get a little Disney Time.

Today is National Man Watcher’s Day or as the ladies call it, “When does the next Thor movie come out day?” We can be an equal opportunity blog by allowing all you readers to be people watchers and people watching is a top activity at Walt Disney World. Want to have some fun? Go to Town Square at the entrance to the Magic Kingdom, grab a seat, and watch people’s reaction as they take in the expanse of Main Street, USA leading up to Cinderella Castle. You can almost instantly tell who is there for the first time.

Hey, it’s Soupy Sales’ birthday. Soupy worked in Huntington, WV at one time and, as we have talked about in earlier blogs, I lived and worked in Huntington a few years ago. Soupy was a great comedian, thrower of pies and general prankster. The famous Soupy Sales story is where he went on television in the early days and told kids to find mom and dad’s wallets and send him those little green pieces of paper. Soupy’s sons are musicians and have played with Todd Rundgren and David Bowie (Hey, it’s David Bowie’s birthday too). Let’s combine Soupy and his sons by visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios where you can ride the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster and see comedy in the streets performed by various groups of street performers.

And It would be negligent of me not to mention that today is Elvis’ birtIf you’re saying, “Elvis who?” keep it to yourself. Elvis and Walt were icons of very different segments of the entertainment industry but they were as important as any entertainers of they’re day. One of our favorite places to stay at Walt Disney World is Pop Century and Pop Century has featured a small tribute to Elvis called, “The King Cupcake,” featuring:  Chocolate Cupcake, Banana Custard Filling, Peanut Butter Frosting, Candied Bacon and Chocolate Drizzle. My peanut allergy keeps me away from this one but bacon is already meat candy so why candy it? Hit Pop Century, head to the food court, and just say, “I’m here for the King.”

Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
