Hollywood Studios

We loved Hollywood Studios.  We got up early to try to get there when the park opened and amazingly enough we succeeded!  We had heard a lot about making sure to get the Fast Pass for the Toy Story ride right when we got there so we headed back that way first.  Jim got in line to get the fast pass and I realized that the line to actually ride it was less than 10 minutes.  So, being the geniuses we are ;), we decided to ride it twice.  We rode it right away and later when our Fast Pass time came up.  

After riding it the first time we headed across the way and waited to see Buzz Lightyear and Woody.  While in line I admired the start to Charlotte's big souvenir, a charm necklace that we added charms to as we went along.

She has her autograph book ready.

They had fun spots to take pictures at as we wound through the line to see the big guys.

Our turn!

Next up Charlotte and Jim went to ride the Star Wars ride.  Oliver was too little for that one so him and I hung out and pretended to be storm troopers. 

After grabbing a coffee and pastry for breakfast we started exploring more of the park.

And went back for our second time on the Toy Story ride.  It is pretty cool.  It is an interactive 3D game and Jim got the high score both times we played.  I claimed Oliver was my handicap the first time so he held him the second time and still beat me.

More exploring!  Oliver was digging it...

Charlotte was tired.... haha! (she is seriously sleeping)

We had lunch scheduled with some of the guys from the Disney Jr. shows.  Up first was Special Agent OSO.

Then Handy Manny.

And Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

And finally was June from Little Einstein.  See Ollie?  Yeah, he was not a fan of the big dudes.

We saw a Disney Jr. show as well that Charlotte just loved.  Then we visited New York City pretty quickly.

The kids had a blast playing on the "set" of Honey I Shrunk the Kids.

After getting our giggles out we went to see a production of Beauty and the Beast.  Both kids loved it and so did we.

And Gaston is hilarious.

We finished the night with Fantasmic!  It was a very cool production.  They go through Mickey's dream, good and bad, and include water, fireworks, fire, characters, and more.

And with that our night was over.
