Timon, Pumbaa, and Simba left tracks on the carpet

There they are

They all lead to the middle of the hallway

We can clearly see The Little Mermaid wing now

Mermaid was originally part of the second phase of Pop Century before they stopped builidng it after 9/11.  It was a ghost town until then.  The retheming of this resort is a fantastic idea.  My wife and I look to stay at the Mermaid area in November or December.
