I’ve this mug for quite awhile, but only got around to featuring it now! For some reason Animal Kingdom Lodge always feels like a “summer” resort to me. I think it’s because the first two times I stayed there it was June and August. And of course the theme of Africa and the safari reminds me of the warmer weather! It’s my favorite resort and where we hope to buy DVC one day, so of course I had to get an Animal Kingdom Lodge mug when I stayed here!
The design of this mug is fairly simple, unlike some of the other crazier Disney mugs, but I think it’s fitting. It has the Animal Kingdom Lodge logo on it, which I really like. It has bright colors and silhouettes of some of the animals. And then there’s a fun diamond design in different colors which continues onto the back.
What’s in my cup: Of course when I’m using my Animal Kingdom Lodge mug, I have to be drinking my Jiko coffee from Joffrey’s! I actually didn’t have coffee the one time we ate at Jiko, but the home version is pretty delicious! And Jiko is a fantastic restaurant, so I’m not surprised that their coffee is good too.
What I’m currently reading: I went to Book Expo a couple of weeks ago in New York City, where publishers gather to advertise their new books to librarians, teachers, and the media. They often have advance copies of many of the books available that they had out for free, and I walked away with almost 40 free books (mostly children’s and young adults, since that’s my area of expertise!). One of these was called Saturdays with Hitchcock, and I absolutely loved it. It’s a fairly simple middle grade coming of age type story, but I felt like it tied in a lot of relatable themes and wrote about them really well. Plus, there’s tons of fun movie references sprinkled throughout!
What’s in your cup right now? And what are you reading?
