Please note this blog is from a trip in early February. This post was written on 3rd Feb 2017.
I wasn’t in the wide awake club until half past 6!! Result! Day began with the customary fight with our toaster – they always seem to be so difficult out here! Please see picture below of two pieces of toast that went in the toaster at the exact same time -.-
Off to Hollywood Studios – park felt quite busy for February but we actually didn’t really wait for anything. As we arrived the March of the First Order started – cue Alex looking like a child at Christmas! We managed to do everything we wanted in the day easily. Great Movie Ride was great and just a walk on. Star Tours not one for people with motion sickness.
Fast Passed Toy Story Mania and it was so worth it – I love this one. Alex won by quite a long way and then turned to me and says “you’re really good at that” to which he received a very cross look.
We watched the Beauty and the Beast show and oh my goodness I can’t believe we’ve never seen it before. I loved it and was singing along all the way through. Also saw for myself the new Belle doll – poor Emma! It is so creepy looking. Also saw the Indiana Jones show – I still love it even though it’s been the exact same show since I was a small child.
We met Olaf in celebrity spotlight and had a warm hug! Also met Mickey and Minnie. Mickey was quite a quick take a picture and off you go – but hey he’s a very busy mouse. Minnie was fabulous – I said I loved her dress and she indicated Alex should buy me one and a belt and bow and bracelet! Could see some sweat appearing on his forehead as he added up how much that might all be.
Off to Fantasmic which I love love love. We couldn’t get a fast pass late on in the day but arrived at 10 past 6 and somehow ended up being put in fast pass anyway. This did mean a long wait and Alex getting crosser and crosser with a small child who thought it was a fun game to kick him over and over. Rushed off to the Star Wars fireworks and even for a non-firework lover they were amazing. Really felt like you were in it with the projections and lasers. Unfortunately, we were dead centre of Hollywood
Boulevard about 1/3 of the way down and all the fireworks were off to the right. Would really recommend standing where you can see off to the right hand side of the stage – I have a lot of pictures of half a firework!
Overall, lovely day but if you don’t love Star Wars the park is lacking in content – even with a HUGE Star Wars fan we arrived at 11 and by 5 we were killing time waiting for Fantasmic. Although admittedly I have really bad motion sickness so we didn’t do Aerosmith or Tower of Terror. Animal Kingdom tomorrow! xx
