I saw this story and just HAD to report it! Can you imagine waking up to the “Circle of Life” from the Lion King while you’re on Spring Break in Florida? I never thought of it before, but the folks at the Holiday Inn in Panama City Beach have! Here’s the scoop according to MyFoxAtlanta~
Every year spring breakers flock to Panama City Beach, but the local Holiday Inn is becoming a hot spot for an unusual traditional that gets tired guests out of bed every morning.
Every year, from 2012, the resort has blasted “The Circle of Life” theme from “The Lion King” every morning. The tradition continues and when the song plays promptly at 11 a.m., dozens of sleepy guests rise from their beds and gather on their balconies to cheer—eager to begin another day of partying on the beach.
“It’s the best thing ever. Every morning when we wake up we look forward to it it’s like an entire Panama City Beach Holiday Inn family just singing together,” Holiday Inn guest Jessica Young told WJHG.
Young isn’t the only guest who looks forward to the throwback song as an alarm clock. Hotel employees say that they have “hundreds of people” calling in each year before making to make sure the song will be played during their stay.
How amazing is that? Here’s the video so you can check it out for yourself!
