You are so cute in pink, I knew we're becoming new BFF's for a reason.

Well, you cinched it, I'm convinced more than ever that I need to try GFcafe, even if it's to see how awful it can be, but out of pocket.
I've wanted to try it for a while now, but just keep seeing lack luster reviews. I am wanting to try that burger though! I'm a sucker for a good burger, not just any burger but a good one.
Lucky for me the new In and Out will be down the street from me here in a few more months, I'll never be tempted other than by their fries.

I know, I know, that's sacrilege to say something like, especially to a southern Californian. Just ask my hubby.

I do however love their prices, can't beat In and Out prices.

Can't wait to see more pics of your night life in MGM studios.

great pictures - I agree that yours are way better than the photopass ones

There are so many neat things in the TOT - even just as you are pulling back to the elevator entrance/exit at the end of the ride, if you look off to the right (the way your car came from) there are a bunch of neat artifacts there too - saw this weird, creepy doll the last time we went

Hi Brenda!! Just returned home from Disney and catching up on your TR!

So funny that you saw the mystic seer fortune telling box because I just saw it for the first time a few nights ago as well! I took a picture of it and it's buried somewhere in my camera's memory cards but I'll try to find it!

Looks like it was a great night for a walk. I just love the parks at night! Tower of Terror would have been my first choice also.

Out of curiousity, how long does the walk from the Boardwalk to Hollywood Studios take?

Your bend and snap photo is too funny!

You are very welcome! Thanks for liking them! I have more than a few photos from that walk between the Epcot resorts and DHS!

True dat! (my street talk there)

There is just something so special about the parks at night, it is my favorite time to be there!

A little unrelated - One thing I didn't realize before someone mentioned it recently (I think it was Nini)... During our March 2012 trip, we did two evenings in AK - when it was dark. It never occured to me at the time, but how RARE is it to be in AK in the dark? It's quite rare that their hours are late enough and it gets dark early enough. There was no way to see it in the dark on our Aug trip... The other parks - it's fairly easy to do... But I thought it was an interesting tid-bit.

I just love being in the parks at night - the atmosphere is so awesome and all of the lights make it feel like Christmas.

How awesome that you were able to ride ToT at night (did it once, no thank you for twice)...

D~
Very good point D~! I landed on that same realization not too long ago when I read Nermal9 (Jen's) AK update here and thought whoa! I've never seen AK after dark! Now I really want to but that means another winter trip during a busier time for extended park hours.

I love the feeling of my stomach dropping, you don't? I suppose I should be glad that not everyone likes is to the wait times don't get like TSMM.

I think I may have to put riding on the Tot at night on my disney bucket list. It looks so cool at night.

The Mystic Seer machine could possibly be the original from the show. Mr. Drewsky informed me the imagineers were able to put quite a few original props from the show in the library.
I love the late night hours at the parks!

Oh, that would be so fun if that was an original prop! William Shatner would have touched it! A few days later when we were on the ride I asked one of the CM about it and they had no clue what it was. Oh well.

Thanks Emily! There were a few PP pics that were blurry. I'd never had that happen before so it was odd. At least there were only a few.

Hi Trish! Thanks! I'm a Vegas lover for certain. In fact, that's one of the reasons I like it - all the pretty lights. I'll be there in a few weeks. Business, not too much pleasure!)

Kudos to Em for looking at the items in the library (I've spotted that item many times, he's actually in both libraries). My fiance and dad always laugh at me because I don't watch the pre-show anymore. I'm too busy looking at all the neat stuff in there. We once spotted some books written in the alien language used in To Serve Man. And I spotted the most beautiful antique vase up above that had ornate beading on it.
Thank you! DHS is one of my favorite parks anyway but at night it's so perfect.

Oh my gosh!! The "To Serve Man" episode was so great! Very cheesy with the mind reading and all and at the end oh the drama when it was revealed their true intentions! Now you have me on a mission to find other relics of the show. I'm going to have to see if the CA version has some of the same things. Thanks for sharing that intel!

The Monsters U topiary is out front where they used to have the Sorcerer Mickey and the brooms. Here's a visual. Of course, we are in it!

I love the photos on the TOT and Rock & Roll. We must do some rides together the next time we are there at the same time.
Ha ha! Is Mark behind you on purpose?

I would LOVE to ride a few rides with you. You pick and I'm there. In fact, the morning of breakfast I think this may work out!

Hi Kelli! Well, thank you, I like pink better on other people but I do like the color.

I HAD to go on ToT. My all-time favorite!

Hey there Camille! Can you believe I never wore pink until a few years ago? Not that it looks good on a ginger but I like it because it is bold and fun! Whenever we eventually meet up I'll be sure to be decked out in pink - just so you recognize me!!

Have you had breakfast at G Flo Café? That is one of my favorite breakfasts at WDW - next to Kona. We had a good dinner at GFC last summer so I do like other meals there. My DH also ordered that burger last summer and really liked it. In fact, if you have any free time you can read my DR from last summer at GFC here.

Now that you mention In/Out, I am a big fan of their fresh and tasty burgers (raw onion please) but not a fan of the fries. I'm in the minority I know! Even though we have In/Out all over, I don't go often. It's our road trip food when we go to Vegas more than anything because they have one half way between our house and Vegas.

Ha ha ha! MGM Studios!! The rest of the evening coming up.

Thanks Phil! I'm glad you mentioned those props. Em's pointed them out but I've never really paid attention. I need to check them out next time. I'm sure they all have some significance.

Welcome back Dave! I've seen your preview photos and they are amazing. I hope you don't mind me giving you a shout out here for the MOST AMAZING photo of the castle with Hallowishes fireworks here. Stunning!

What a coincidence! I want to see your photo since mine was jacked up from having to move on out of the room so quickly. (That and I have no clue how to use a camera like you!)

Hi Annie! That park at night is particularly fabulous. It's about a 15 minute walk from the Epcot resorts to DHS. I would rather walk than take the boat.

I'm glad you liked our bend and snap!

Thanks Sarah! I especially like the hat with the twinkly lights. Of course the billboard type signs all lit up on Hollywood and Sunset Blvds are pretty awesome too!

You should keep wearing it, it's so cute on you.

Have you had breakfast at G Flo Café? That is one of my favorite breakfasts at WDW - next to Kona. We had a good dinner at GFC last summer so I do like other meals there. My DH also ordered that burger last summer and really liked it. In fact, if you have any free time you can read my DR from last summer at GFC here.

I've never been to GF to eat other than to eat at 1900 Park Fare (previous trips) and to have Tea this last trip. Mackie really loved the tea, which kind of surprised me
Would you believe I've never had breakfast at Kona?!? It really should be on our list for our next trip. I usually prefer the buffets because I can get some really healthy choices along with a few bad one's mixed in. I don't feel so bad about the bad stuff as long as I can mix in a lot of the healthy along with it.


Now that you mention In/Out, I am a big fan of their fresh and tasty burgers (raw onion please) but not a fan of the fries. I'm in the minority I know! Even though we have In/Out all over, I don't go often. It's our road trip food when we go to Vegas more than anything because they have one half way between our house and Vegas.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against having one of their burgers every once in a while, they just aren't a big draw like their fries are. We have a place called P. Terry's out here and they have pretty good burgers, but not as good as the burgers they use to have at our Whole Foods down town, that is before they removed the grill. <wiping drool of chin> Some idiot at Corp. decided they should have some other type of food station, even though the grill was probably one of the most popular stations in all of Whole Foods, at least you could count on a good burger or a chicken sandwich that wasn't full of hormones and other junk. And their fries, don't even get me started. It was a good darn thing they were downtown and not near my house.

Ha ha ha! MGM Studios!! The rest of the evening coming up.
Can't wait.

I like your buffet logic. Makes sense to me! Just enough healthy to feel good and just enough cheats to declare, "I'm on vacation!"

Burgers at Whole Foods? Never heard of that. I believe we've had sandwiches but not a grille. Brilliant idea if you ask me!

Monday August 19, 2013: Day 4, Part 5



A quick update to finish off our evening. I'm short on words this late at night but not light on photos!

So.. we were enjoying EMH at DHS.

It was nearly midnight and we had time for one more ride and it happened to be The Great Movie Ride with the gangster scene of course. Give me some bank robberies people!!









Argh! Me thinks he could be in PotC

Goodbyes are so hard - especially when there's a plane right there making it hard to talk!

Size 8 ruby red slippers now available





Heading out



It was after park close by the time we exited… not much we could do but comply and move along. I had to give Bo some attention before we left.


We said our good-byes to Mr. DDW and hope that perhaps another meet up is in our future! Em and I took the bus back to AKL. We were seated next to two young ladies that were cousins who were very friendly and chatty. One of them was a DVC owner – at 21!! I was impressed.

Nothing newsworthy happened the rest of the evening unless you call watching Conan interesting. We were nodding off by 1:30am.

We're finally through Day 4 folks!

Continued Next Post

Pre-trip plans and Disneyland Intermission with Photos
