BIG WHEEL, BIG MOUSE: The primary mode of pedal-powered
transportation for many kids in the 1970s — the Big Wheel — has
made a comeback (in a big way!) at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, the
newest value-category hotel at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake
Buena Vista, Fla. In the shadow of the Big Wheel, giant table
soccer players stand ready, while a 1970s-style Mickey Mouse
telephone calls from across the courtyard. Disney’s Pop Century
Resort pays tribute to the popular toys, dances, catch phrases and
fads through the decades with lodge buildings anchored by
four-story icons including a laptop computer from the 1990s, a Sony
Walkman from the 1980s, Duncan Yo-Yos from the 1960s and a jukebox
from the 1950s. (Permission is hereby granted to intended addressee
