World of Coke Part I

(So named because I figured out that I'd taken way too many pictures for Blogger to let me upload on one post.)

For instance:

The look of anticipation as we waited for Jason to finalize our tickets.

The ginormous Coke bottles in the foyer, in front of which an employee took a picture of us for our purchase later. Until later, when we discovered that picture costs $19.99.

And the entryway, filled with Coke memorabilia, where we waited for the first movie ("The Happiness Factory" or something like that) to begin. Luckily, we went first thing in the morning (8 a.m.!) so there was only us and a couple from Wisconsin. The bad part was, with such a low staffer-to-guest ratio, they tended to hover.

More to come!

i'm looking at the pics going "that doesn't look like the world of coca cola.... but then i remembered they were opening the new one... very cool!!!! my kids are there this week while I am in Mississippi (how in the world do you tolerate this heat?????)

Valerie said...

totally cool new banner, BTW!!! nicely done - makes me wish i could do stuff like that!!

Melissa said...

Yes, they have sodas from all over - some were good, some were NAAASTAY!

We Mississippians just get used to the heat, I guess. I've visited other places (Michigan, North Carolina mountains) during the summer and I'm amazed at how hot it isn't!

Thanks Valerie - I acquired some new mad Photoshop skillz today. A world without Photoshop is not a world in which I want to live, my friend!
