Fun Find Friday

January 10, 2014

Location: Grand Floridian Villas

Last week we took a look at the lobby of the Grand Floridian Villas where we discovered the little details paying homage to Mary Poppins. Today we are headed into one of the rooms where we will see a few more references to the nanny that is practically perfect in every way!

While in the master bedroom, guests can find a picture on the wall above the desk depicting several elements from the Jolly Holiday sequence of the film. At the top of the picture you can find Mary Poppins, Bert, Jane and Michael, riding off of the Merry Go Round while a group of dancing penguins go off the other way. In the center are Mary and Bert having a Jolly Holiday together, while the bottom portion features the fox chase:

The true gem found within the villa, however, is at the pull out bed below the television in the living room section. Here you can find a painting with Mary Poppins flying off while Jane and Michael nod off to sleep. On both sides of the painting the lyrics to Stay Awake have been written:

Grand Floridian Villas

Stay awake, don't rest your head
Don't lie down upon your bed
While the moon drifts in the skies
Stay awake, don't close your eyes

Though the world is fast asleep
Though your pillows soft and deep
You're not sleepy as you seem
Stay awake, don't nod and dream
