Now I have a request. Go find Josh's movie stash and watch Star Wars. The Original Star Wars movies. Not the new ones. I mean you can watch them eventually, but start with the good stuff.
Our next trip will add Hollywood and Vine to "must do" for DHS, for my niece

He got me to watch StarTrek a few weeks ago, I liked that, so maybe I will find the Star Wars movies this weekend and give them a go

We decided it was time for another first!




Yes I know, how it is possible!? One of my Facebook friends asked me exactly what it is I do in Disney if I had never had a Dole Whip, seen a rope drop show, rode the trolley or gone to Indiana Jones…

So we headed in, not really knowing what to expect (other than what I had seen on the Full House special!)




Oh look, another selfie!




We had really good seats considering how late we had gotten there!










I HAD to Facebook this photo… I work at a school that offers video as a major, and while I don’t really know anything about the equipment, I knew this wouldn’t mass muster where I work!




I can see why so many people feel this needs to be freshened. I enjoyed seeing the fire and “stuff” but really the effects that they are highlighting are not the newest and best…










Once the show was finished we headed out to the gift shop




This could be a really fun new area if they rethemed it! It just looks tired.




Josh had been fighting a nasty cold this whole time, and we bought more medicine (at like $3 a dose!) before I remembered we could just go here:




I was starting to feel stuffy and nasty as well, so the nurse hooked us up! She was SUPER nice and together we made fun of Josh for having “man cold”…. She also told me that when they have a nurse position open up they normally get about (literally) a thousand applications for the job. She gave us enough meds for the rest of the trip, and sent us on our way with stickers!

After stopping it was time to head to dinner. On the way, this happened




Where were we having dinner you ask?




We had a 5:50 reservation at the drive in! You can read all about it (no really I talk a lot) HERE in my dining review!
Here we are being adorable in our car!




By the time we were done eating we decided that it was cold, we didn’t really feel good, and that Fantasmic! Would have to wait until another night.
On the way out of dinner I saw this billboard and got really excited (keep in mind we don’t have billboards in Maine at all) I LOVE this show!


One of my favorite things that you run into at Hollywood Studios :






We of course had to find more penny machines! Sadly I didn’t have enough change with us to get them all, and figured I could get the rest a few days later… if only I had KNOWN!!!!! (more foreshadowing dum dum dum)




After a bit more wandering we headed back to the hotel and spent
It was a good plan, that I think kept both of us from getting really sick, and I’m glad we stuck to it!

So you knew exactly what to expect. Except of course, you're not going to see Steve playing Indiana Jones.



Sorry you weren't feeling well. Always puts a damper on things, but at least the nurse hooked you up!

12 months really isn't that much time with all the planning I have to get done...

The next morning we slept in a bit (according to my notes we slept 10 hours!) I forgot to mention we did 13,965 steps the day before!

But we were VERY sad to wake up to a wicked mess from our neighbors!




I took a photo for fear that it would blow over onto our balcony, and we would be charged for the smokers! We decided to stop on the way out and let the front desk know, because where we were right on top of the animals, and there was a slight breeze, we were worried that an animal might end up eating that nasty stuff!

They thanked us for letting them know, and sure enough when we went back later in the day it was gone, and so were the people!

Our plan called for Breakfast at the Mara, but we decided since it was so late to just head on over to Epcot and start snacking early!
We of course stopped for a few fun photos!






So I’m a little confused about what we did next. I think we were a hair too early for the festival, so we went to Inoventions?



We then headed back into the Festival Center, to look at more of the exhibits.



















As we came out of the center I was so excited to see the Jaminators were setting up! We have never caught them full on like this!






As they got started they drew a nice crowd!







Epcot was not crowded at all! We knew they were predicting a very wet day, so we had our ponchos on the ready, but it appeared other people were just skipping the park!




Once the World Showcase opened we headed straight over!




We had a few tasks! I needed to meet Duffy, and I needed to eat!

Is that a scratcher on the ground next to the cigarette?? They must have been partying hard Glad you told the CM's. For the animals sake and yours too. I think the fee is like $250 huh? Hope they got charged!

Looking forward to hearing about your day at DHS!

It really irritates me, there are smoking areas around the hotel, and this isn't like other places where it just smells, you could hurt an animal!

Love, love, love the Jammitors! My daughters thought they were great and asked them to sign their autograph books.

We stop for them every time we see them!

I can't believe that people would be so careless as to break the clearly stated rules and then leave evidence of doing so. I'm not a fan of cigarette smoke. Otherwise, it looks like you guys were having a blast! If you only had one day to experience Flower and Garden Festival, what would be your must dos?

No comment about the scratch off and cigarette butt. Well, I do have a comment, but I don't want to offend anyone.

Gotta love the Jammitors! Their show is awesome!
