I love getting acting advice from you! Thank you I will definitely practice as much as I possibly can! Improv is A LOT of fun!

Speaking of like performance and acting and all that fun stuff... Seth Meyers from SNL came to my college last night and I went to go see him. HE WAS SO FREAKING FUNNY OMG. I thought you would probably appreciate that

I went on the Backstage Magic Tour for my 16th Birthday Present. That's the tour that I DEFINITELY recommend that you do! It's like 6 or 7 hours long (but you do NOT get bored. At all. Obviously.) and you get to go freakin' EVERYWHERE. They spent a ton of time talking to us about the Tower of Terror and we got to see some of the ride operation secrets and learned about the details. We also got to see Backstage at the American Adventure, The Costume Department, (HOLY freaking God that place is beautiful) The Laundry Facility, Where they store all of the Flower and Garden topiaries in the greenhouses, This huge warehouse where they had ride vehicles like splash mountain logs, hunny pots, dumbo elephants, etc. The ultilidors at the Magic Kingdom, and MANY more places. I wish I would have been trip reporting back then so I could remember more of the details. But you would ABSOLUTELY love it. It's definitely on the expensive side... but it's like.... absolutely unbelievable. If you can save up for it, it's SO worth the money. I say if you're gonna go on a tour, just do that one and go all out so you can see EVERYTHING. It's a life changing experience. Plus your tour guide will be SUPER knowledgable so any detail questions you have they would be more than happy to answer! And I think we went to Whispering Canyon for lunch! YUM!

Woo sorry to ramble. I hope that's helpful!

Alright, time for the update!

LOL dance together at Disney as children BAM get married. What a perfect story.

I'm surprised I don't know this song! I have never heard/seen the parade at DHS... weird, I know.

BUG'S LIFE IS ONE OF MY CHILDHOOD MOVIES! When I was in Kindergarten I think I watched it EVERY SINGLE DAY for like months. And then for Halloween my brother and I dressed up as Flik and Atta. OMG I HAVE A PICTURE. Of course I feel the need to show you now.



Precious, right? oh my God I miss being 5.

"I AM A BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY!" Omg. I freaking NEED to watch that movie like immediately. Ahhh I'm so glad it's such a huge part of this parade!!

I have only seen Up once, too! I just watched it for my first time a little over a month ago. I LOVE KEVIN!!!!!!

Livin' It Up in Comic Sans makes me laugh out loud. Literally.

TOYYYYY STORYYYYYYYYYY!

I need to definitely see this parade next time! Thank you for bringing it to my attention!

And THANK YOU FOR UPDATING!

YOU'RE RIGHT. A Bug's Life is SO underrated. It's one of my favorites!

I loved that parade too! I mean yeah, it's pretty simple and some people complain that the song literally just repeats itself over and over, but the PIXAR characters! They're all awesome and I love them, and I LIKED the song so therefore I too think the parade is awesome.
haha a flash mob at Disney! That would be so amazing! There's always next trip

Disney songs are repetitive people, deal with it! LOL I never understand when people complain about stuff like that, like the Small World song. It's alll part of the experience!

Same goes for Zellweger-- treating Empire Records like a red-headed stepchild. Damn them!

P.S. Huge Friends fan as well, love the references, keep 'em coming!
YAY, a Center Stage fan! I can't even tell you how many times I've seen it, I'd have to guess at least 50. It was my 4th grade dream! I had no idea Zoe felt that way. I HATE when actors are like that! You should be proud of all your work, even if it's terrible (which Center Stage is so not). That's one of the reasons I love Jen Aniston, she was in the movie Leprechaun and always jokes about it and just owns it. AND EMPIRE RECORDS IS SUCH A GOOD MOVIE! I LOVE IT! How could Zellweger feel that way? Especially when she makes crap like New In Town and Case 39. They can't all be Chicago, honey! Own it!

Oh trust me, there will be a ton more Friends references! Stay tuned!

Yes... had you not described that cupcake in such delicious detail, I would not be the woman I am today! Please keep the food reviews coming! You know what I really want to try that I've never seen anywhere but your trip report? The carrot cake cookie at Writer's Stop. YUM! WOW!

I would be happy to provide any acting/showbiz advice anytime! I mean, I pretty much still need advice on it myself though, but I'll try my best. LOL

That's so awesome that Seth came to your school! How fun! My favorite is when he has Stefon with him on Weekend Update. Oh man I can't stop laughing when that comes on.

Thanks for the info on Backstage Magic! It sounds AMAZING! That would be the one I want to do the most. When I saw it would be $500 for my mom and I to do it I was like OUCH, but it seems worth saving up for. I also really want to do the "Through Walt's Eyes" and "Marceline to the Magic Kingdom" tours cause Walt just fascinates me. And basically all the Epcot ones cause I'm so obsessed with every inch of that park. And Wild By Design at AK!! And... just all of them. haha!

HAHAHA that is SUCH a cute picture of you and your brother! I miss being 5 too. You absolutely MUST catch the parade next time, especially being such a big Bug's Life fan!

Thank YOU for reading!!

I love the citizens of Hollywood! They are so hilarious. When we were there this past December we saw their show too with the 12 days of Christmas. It was so funny! We were just walking by after riding TOT and they were performing. It was a perfect surprise! Loved it.

Yay TOT- it is an awesome ride and full of amazing detail. I love the theming. I wish I could just roam around the lobby and see everything. You HAVE to get the robe! Just do it or you'll keep regretting your decision that you didn't get it. Plus it'll probably just keep going up in price LOL.

Yummy cupcake. Okay. It's official I HAVE to get one! Between you and Jess talking about it I feel like it's just something I have to try. I had the oreo one from Boardwalk Bakery and that was delicious. But I've never had anything red velvet before so this will definitely be a new experience for me haha. May cannot come soon enough.

The Pixar parade looks fun! I'll have to try to see that too. I usually skip the afternoon parades but we'll try to see that one!

Hi Lia! Sorry I haven't commented on this TR in awhile, but I'm glad to hear you found a new hula Timon on Amazon. I was so sad when you announced his disappearance And I've really enjoyed catching up, so glad to hear someone else thoroughly enjoys most everything about Tower of Terror, seriously that ride as a whole is just amazing and I got to look for that robe. May have to save up for that lol Can't wait to read more!

I love when guests play along with CMs/Citizens of Hollywood. I mean, it's Disney. I wish everyone would loosen up and have a little fun.

I have a theory that the sky is always extra blue over MGM. Your pictures support that.

I've never seen the Countdown to Fun parade, so I looked it up on Youtube to hear the music - holy hell that's repetitive! It's catchy and not necessarily unpleasant, but it's definitely repetitive. I miss Block Party Bash. It used all the same floats/costumes, but there were showstops/trampolines/Green Army Men/audience involvement and other extra elements that made it so much cooler. It also included the macarena which trumps all.

I can't wait to hear all about my favorite cat!!

Ahhh I want to wander around the lobby so bad too! I wish they would let me out of line. Maybe one day if I beg and beg and swear not to touch anything. Probably not but hey it's worth a try!

OMG yes get the cupcake. I also had the Oreo cupcake from the Boardwalk Bakery and it WAS delicious, but nowhere near as good as the red velvet one. That is the SUPREME KING OF CUPCAKES!!! It makes everything else taste... lackluster. It's just that good.

Hey! Yup, Hula Timon is here again. He's actually sitting right here, on my desk. I like to keep him close because of what happened last time! hah!

Glad you're enjoying, thanks for reading!

I agree!

There were TRAMPOLINES?? Ahh! They do that a lot at the international parks and it is SO cool! In general the parades overseas are better imo.

THAT CAT!!! Oh man. I'm gonna cry. Why are we not there right now?!?!

DECEMBER 6, 2011
Day 2, Part 4 In Which We Visit The Cat That Hates People


After the parade, there was a Voyage of the Little Mermaid show that coincided perfectly with how much time we had until our ADR. Don't you love when that happens?

A lot of people say this show is too rushed and that it needs updating. Well, it wouldn't kill them to update it but I really love it just the way it is, mostly because of nostalgia.

This show is one of my vivid memories from my first trip that we went on for my 5th birthday. The Little Mermaid was always one of my #1 favorites as a child, and I just remember being so completely in awe of this show that I was frozen and speechless. I especially remember the rain falling down from the ceiling at the beginning and just thinking it was the coolest thing in the world.

The only thing is, they really need to mic Ariel. She had a very beautiful voice but she was hard to hear and we were in one of the first rows!

I swooned over Prince Eric, as usual. He is my third favorite prince, behind Aladdin and Eugene Fitzherbert.

After the show, we headed out of the theatre and onto one of my favorite parts of all our WDW trips!!!!!!! We had an ADR at MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN ALL OF WDW..... THE SCI-FI DINE-IN THEATRE!





It's very hard for me to pick a favorite restaurant, but Sci-Fi is so much more than a place to eat. It is an attraction all its own. No restaurant makes me happier! A lot of people agree the atmosphere is amazing, but the food isn't good. These people are wrong. Yeah, the menu doesn't boast 5 star meals (why would it? It's supposed to be a freakin' Drive In!), but everything I've eaten here has been delicious. Of course, the food could be terrible and I still would come here. Sci-Fi is a MUST DO, even if you want to save your dining plan credit for a more sophisticated meal, you should still come here and get a milkshake or some dessert or SOMETHING just to experience it. You will be saying YUM and WOW about every 5 seconds. Must must must must MUST DO!!!!

I love that the whole thing is set up like a real movie set. I've been on many sound stages and sets and this place is so accurately designed! Actually, I visited Sci-Fi a few times before my first time on a real set, so when I got my first jobs working in movies/tv, they REMINDED ME of Sci-Fi and other places in Disney! LOL. I really didn't realize it before I started working on sets, but most of Disney is really designed like a living, constant film and TV set. So incredible!



I checked us in and we waited about ten minutes. During that time, my mom went to the restroom and I did what I do best at Disney: wander around and take pictures!


All sound stages have a red light and sign like this and even so, I'm always worried I'm going to step into the wrong door and walk into the middle of a scene. I actually almost did that while working on The Good Wife. It was VERY frumptastic of me. Can you imagine? Julianna Margulies standing there talking very seriously to someone, and in I tumble! LOL. I










I became very interested in this old pay phone! There was a phone number on it: 213-560-4052! I was very tempted to call it, but decided to wait for my mom, and then totally forgot! Next time!





After waiting about 10 minutes, our car was ready! Yay!


YAYYYYYYYYYYYAYAYAYYYYYYY SCI FI! This is seriously one of my favorite places to be in the entire world. If I lived in Orlando, I'd be here weekly. Well, daily, let's be real.




For our drinks, we both got vanilla milkshakes. Now, I only drink milkshakes at Disney World, specifically only at Sci-Fi and Beaches & Cream. It wasn't always like this, I used to think that milkshakes outside of Disney were good. I was wrong. Most milkshakes, even though made with delicious ingredients, are NOTHING compared to the fantastical deliciousness that is a Disney milkshake. Milkshakes from anywhere else just taste like Wendy's Frosties to me now. Every once in awhile, if I'm at a nice place or a specialty restaurant outside of Disney, I get a milkshake just to see if they can compare... and they never do.

I also got a coke with cherry flavoring in a souvenir cup with a GLOW CUBE!!!



I was SO excited about this LOL. It was just so cool...no pun intended! But really, I loved it so much. I use my glow cube on special occasions now so I don't use up the battery, but I use my Sci-Fi mug almost every day! It makes me so happy! The cube was slowly changing colors at the time, but you can set it to just stay a solid color or blink too!

Let me explain about the cherry flavored sodas. This is not Cherry Coke. This is not Cherry Pepsi. This is coke that they pump some kind of cherry goo into and it makes the world go round. IT IS SO GOOD! Disney ruins a lot of things for me, like I used to love Cherry Coke and now it tastes like crap to me compared to Disney's cherry flavored soda. It's going to get to the point where all I eat outside of Disney is water and rice cakes.

Finally, we ordered our mini-meal! We never get much food here because the milkshakes are SO filling. We got what we always get, the DIVINE Spinach & Artichoke dip!


I don't eat spinach. I don't eat artichokes. And somehow, I love this! Go figure. This is, yet again, another thing I almost never get outside of Disney because 90% of restaurants do not make it correctly. The appetizer at Chili's is actually pretty close, but their chips kind of ruin it! No where near as good as what Disney serves!


We also ordered a side of fries to share. YUM.

This was a really cute little notice I didn't remember from before:



LOL!

I hate that my pictures never come out in here! I wish you could see the Hollywood Hills in the background.









Now, it's very hard to pick a favorite sketch because everything shown at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre is magnificent. However, there is a certain cat I am very fond of.

You know who I'm talking about.


IT'S THE CAT WHO HATES PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!! "People people people. Everywhere, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!"

In this "grass is always greener on the other side" tale, our hero is a nameless cat who HATES people. Loathes them! He's always getting stepped on and having his business invaded by people and he just can't stand them. So much so that he decides the only logical thing to do is move to outer space. Alas, once he gets to the moon, things like this happen to him:


This makes him realize that basically everywhere sucks so he should really stop complaining about the people of earth. So naturally he turns himself into part golf ball, part golf club, and hurls himself back toward earth where he hugs the sidewalk. Roll credits!

The Cat That Hated People: fun for the whole family!

Oh Sci Fi, I love you so much. For more on my Sci Fi love and obsession, check out my previous TR!

On our way out, I took a picture of the outdoor bar.

This isn't always there, or at least I don't remember it from past trips.

Next to Sci-Fi, there is a great little cafe called Writer's Stop that I wanted to show my mom. They are famous for their delicious cookies and it's just a really cute place. My mom and I are both writers, so as soon as she saw it she said, "Hey, this is our stop!" and I laughed so hard I almost threw up.

The cookies looked BEYOND amazing, but we were so full from our drive in food that it just wasn't the right time, so I made a mental note to return soon, and off we went!

We headed out of the park and to the boat dock so we could go to Epcot. I was bouncing with excitement. EPCOT!!!!!!! Our Livin It Up would reach new ridiculous levels once we arrived!

Up next: I embarrass myself in front of a gorgeous man. What else is new?

Voyage of The Little Mermaid I really hate how I've never seen that show down there. I love the movie and yet I haven't had a chance to see it. But it sounds really cool, I mean when it rains at the beginning oh that must be really cool when seeing it for the first time. Hopefully it will still be there when I go back since a lot of forgotten shows in DHS are being shut down just like that

Oh... well... this is awkward. Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, hmmmm... yup... yeah, I'm not a fan. I mean I didn't have an awful experience, but compared to other experiences it wasn't good. But the drinks, especially the shakes, there I've heard are wicked good so I may give it a second chance and I did enjoy my pasta salad, it's just all the bad kinda covered the good, but I won't go into that for your sake. And I want to see the new entrance area since it was under construction when I was last there. I love the pictures you got of those little screen advertisements on the screen, it really is funny that they show previews for those bad movies when you first think about it And I think it's awesome you have an obsession with the Cat Who Hates People, I'm surprised I don't remember him from the reel, but I'll have to make sure to catch him in his act

Mmmmm... Writer's Stop, another place I need to check out, the carrot cake cookie is just so enticing Also, I may find a chance to put together a nice manuscript there

Can't wait to read more!

I don't know if you're familiar with the Birbaum's Walt disney world guides, but they have a version that is "for kids by kids" where the kids can write in their opinions on the Disney attractions... And when I was in 6th grade I wrote in about Voyage of the Little Mermaid and got published To this day I always think of that book when I hear about that attraction haha

We have THE SAME Disney prince line up

I LOVE SCI-FI!!! Hearing you talk about it makes me miss it sooooo much!

FRUMPTASTIC! Omg I love you. Perfect frumpy (and accurately described) moment!

Ahh I definitely want to call that number! I'm putting it in my phone right now!

I never noticed those movie posters! How perfect!

Bahahaha "daily, let's be real." but seriously.

Mmmm milkshake. I want one.

Lol realistically, the only things worth eating outside of Disney are rice cakes and water. I wish I didn't have to waste my calories on non-Disney food haha

Spinach and Artichoke dip is like..... Ahhhh SO PERFECT. Ugh I want it right now!

Bahaha I noticed that love bug sign when I was there and I forgot that existed. I got a kick out of that one LOL

Yay the cat who hated people! I watched for that one specifically when you told me about it. So funny!!

Yay for the Writer's Stop! I hope you went back there eventually!

Such a great update! Can't wait for the next one!

Let me explain about the cherry flavored sodas. This is not Cherry Coke. This is not Cherry Pepsi. This is coke that they pump some kind of cherry goo into and it makes the world go round. IT IS SO GOOD! Disney ruins a lot of things for me, like I used to love Cherry Coke and now it tastes like crap to me compared to Disney's cherry flavored soda. It's going to get to the point where all I eat outside of Disney is water and rice cakes.

I fell ya on this! Every time we are trying to go out to eat at home, i want to go to Disney. Like why can't there be character meals in Georgia. I cannot even get a good cupcake without thinking about starring rolls! I would have a season pass just to go eat if i lived in orlando!

YESSS SCI-FI! So awesome. So Disney.

I want those movie posters in my room! They're lovely.

Not gonna lie, a lot of time I am The Cat Who Hates People. Not at Disney, of course, but everywhere else. Ah well.

I'm so happy I checked the Dis this morning so I could read this. I'm leaving for Disney World TODAY - this is making me even more excited!!

OMG SCI FI!!!! Why is that seriously the coolest place ever? It just is.

OKAY so I loved the food that I had there (I'm gonna be honest for a second and say that I accidentally just typed 'foot' first. I did not love the foot I had there) BUT I DIDN'T LIKE THE MILKSHAKE. I don't know why!!!! Like what's wrong with me??? To be honest I thought that IT tasted like a Wendy's frosty! (I think I told you this before... I feel like I did haha.) So was my mistake getting chocolate? My sister got oreo or whatever and she loved it. And you had vanilla... so hmmmmmmmm?

I AGREE about the flavored soda (the BEST ever. Vanilla coke will never be the same) AND the light up cubes. I LOVE THEM! Mine is up in some high cabinet that I can't reach and I miss it dearly!

Hahaha I swear, all the video clips had me CRACKING UP. I was like, HOW has my life been lacking this GENIUS for so long?

Can't wait for more Livin' It Up!
