Website update…

If you are a new visitor you might have not mentioned that the page recently got an overhaul. The design had been changed and the Picture Libraries have been changed. The change of the library was made possible by an update upon request since Flickr supports larger squared Thumbnails since the end of 2012 and this feature was integrated by Wesley from weaveraddons.com. After this changed was made I got a bit tired of the Mirage Lay-out from Nimblehost. After searching for a some hours I found the Flexture lay-out which I liked for our website. So know everybody knows what I did to update the website I’d like to show you some nice gimmicks:

The Visitor Interaction Panel:

With the VIP you can change the colour settings and the font-size to your personal preference. Try it yourself and let us know or you like the colors!

In addition the website is still responsive which means that it automagically resizes according to the size of your browser. This should make sure that everyone has a good viewing experience.

We’ve booked our Orlando Hotel…

After booking the flight and a hotel for the first 2 nights of our Florida 2013 trip we also needed a hotel in the Walt Disney World area for the other 18 nights of our trip.

We searched a lot in the internet and also considered Priceline again but we decided to book the hotel directly at ihg.com (former Priority Club). So for the next 18 nights we will be staying at the Staybridge Suites Lake Buena Vista. It is an extended stay hotel and only has Suites available. Those suites are newly renovated and they look very contemporary.

Our deal includes free parking, free internet and free intercontinental breakfast and the most important thingÔÇŽ No resort fee!!! This hotel is also very close to the Walt Disney World Resort, only 1 Mile away. The hotel is located near the South Apopka Vineland Road (SR 535) and there are a lot of restaurants in walking distance like Kobe Steakhouse, Dunkin’ Donuts, Joe’s Crab Shack and Olive Garden.

We are really looking forward staying at this property. Only 15 more weeks to go ­čÖé

Running in Disney…

As some of you might have seen on our Twitter and/or Facebook accounts we started running about 12 weeks ago. Not with a real goal but just to do something which doesn’t takes a lot of our time because we don’t have a lot of time to move. In march we invested in running shoes and clothing and since than we have both covered over 100 km in total. Danielle is in training for the 6k run from B2Run end of July and she is right on track since she already runs 5k in about 35 minutes, I’m running 5k in about 28 minutes right now but I’m not participating in that run. And as a proof we can show our FourSquare badges:

So until yesterday I didn’t had a real goal except for running 10 km without any breaks later this year. And than I found out about RunDisney.com. RunDisney organises running events in Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort. And I found out that during our stay in Walt Disney World there is the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. But that one was sold out already and I guess that is not really bad since I’m definitely not able to run a half marathon this year. But for the less trained there is also the Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K. And since we are both able to run the 5K already this shouldn’t be a problem and so I registered us for the run, the only real problem is the start at 7 o’clock in the morning during our vacation.

But we will not be running for the best time since there is a lot of entertainment along the track and I think it’s best to make pictures from that. There is music and there are a lot of Disney characters a long the track too. And maybe the most interesting part is that the track is through Animal Kingdom as you can see in the RunDisneyTV Movie below:

I can’t wait to participate and finish!
