What? No love for the turtles?

Disney Parks Blog posted more information on the annual event on their website last week.

I would love to go see this! But then maybe I'm just looking for a reason to visit the Vero Beach Resort.

I admit, I've been checking on all the turtles! I'm very fond of Panama Jackie. She's had a great trip so far, including a little stop over in Cancun (where I assume she got her turtle groove on) then across the Gulf to Galveston and now heading east. Maybe over to the Florida panhandle? Speaking of which - Ripley is right outside of Port Canaveral!
