Location: Pop Century
One of my favorite resorts to
explore on Walt Disney World property is Pop
century. Each of the sections is well themed
with fun finds, but today we are going to be
heading into the 50s section to find some of the
details that make this section unique.
Most of the section focuses on bowling. Near the
pool, the walkway looks like a a bowling lane, while the dry
cleaning section is shaped like a section for bowling shoes. Our fun
find, however, revolves around the the bowling pins found at the
stair cases in the area.
Each of the three buildings features three different
wings with their own individual staircase at the end. Each staircase
is inside a King Brunswick bowling pin: While it is fun to walk
inside a bowling pin, there is more here than meets the eye! In case
you have done the math, three buildings times three staircases
equals nine pins. For those avid bowlers (and not so avid) out
there, I know exactly what you're thinking: But in Bowling there are
ten pins! You, my friend, are absolutely correct! So where on earth
is the tenth pin?
If you climb towards the upper levels of the
buildings and look down at the pool below, you will realize that the
pool itself, is the tenth pin! And that, is a perfect strike!
