A cute baby kangaroo boarded a PSA regional jet — and a flight attendant recorded the marsupial’s hop down the aisle.

Plus, a 10,000 bedroom resort is being planned next to World Disney World in Orlando. 

Those are some travel-related stories I saw today and thought you, too, may find interesting.

Hop Along

PSA flight attendant Bobby Weston captured this footage of a baby kangaroo boarding a flight from Charlotte to Newport News:

American Airlines (which owns PSA) said in an email (per Fox News) that the joey took the flight “as part of an animal conservation effort.” The AAStews Instagram page is an unofficial account that features American Airlines flight attendants. (H/T: Travel + Leisure)

If only it had been on Qantas…

10,000-Bedroom Resort Next to WDW

Theme Park Insider’s Robert Niles writes:

Plans are moving ahead for the replacement of the Villas at Grand Cypress, near the Walt Disney World Resort. Developers have announced plans for Evermore Orlando Resort on the 1,100-acre site.

The new billion-dollar resort ultimately will offer 10,000 bedrooms, mostly in purpose-built vacation rental homes from two to 11 bedrooms each. It also will feature Orlando’s first Conrad Hotel, with 433 rooms.

There’s no Mickey Mousing it: that place sounds huge. (This post has been updated to reflect that Disney is apparently not affiliated with the project.)
