You are welcome to peek under the hoods or in the cabins, but don’t touch! These cars are there to show off and compete for a chance to win a drawing. Two winners are announced monthly.

Immortalized by the Ultimate Parisian Bohemian Scenester
February 13 - May 23, 2021
Visit late 19th century Paris through the Belle Époque’s most famous scenester and master artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Experience the famed Parisian Bohemian world through this Post-Impressionist’s eyes in paintings, drawings, and famous lithographic posters that identified and mass-produced the bohemian nightlife, a la Moulin Rouge, all things cabaret, and risqué. Toulouse-Lautrec erased the line between fine and commercial art as he was commissioned to advertise his own favorite nightspots, cabarets, concert halls, and theaters, which some are still popular today. Step back into the Belle Époque and experience for yourself the height of bohemian glamour in the romantic city of lights, Paris, France. Visit the gallery which is 45 minutes south of Orlando at the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida. This exhibition runs until May 23, 2021. Admission is free Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., but reservations are required.

Location: Animal Kingdom
The room was nice and clean, the beds were very comfortable and the food was good. The price couldn’t have been better for the location. We walked to the convention center, restaurants and bars across the street.
Super hotel for all
This hotel was very good value, you get toiletries, coffee 1 cup machine, fridge, microwave, safe and free WiFi at no extra charge. Lovely clean rooms with great comfy beds. All the staff were very friendly and helpful across the whole site. Location was super, and right outside the hotel was bus stops if you do not have a car. Buses were very clean and reasonable priced. It is very handy to have a 24 hour shop on site for things you might have forgotten, and if you need something to eat. Three very clean pools, nice children’s play area, and pool tables and games room for teens. Security guard on duty 24/7 when you enter the parking lot, and on foot security guards walk every floor, felt very safe. We will definitely go back to this hotel, loved it, and would recommend to our friends.
