Day 4 ~ Part 1

Today we woke early again and ate blueberry pancakes in our villa! We got dressed and made it in the DHS park just as the rope was dropping. Today was the day we were to ride Toy Story Mania for the first time.


We needed a stroller first so I ran over to get one and I swear I ran in to the slowest CM in all of WDW. FINALLY I got the stroller, DS actually JUMPED into the stroller as I was approaching him so I never had to stop. We've taught him well. We were actually not that far behind. We made it to Toy Story Mania where I ran over to grab fast passes and a man cut in front of me. BLATANTLY, not accidentally. He knew what he was doing. I wanted to kick him in the shin but I took a deep breath........LOUDLY. He heard me. It's now his turn and of course he's got paper tickets and ...........you got it......they don't work in the fastpass machine. The CM comes over and messes with them for a while.......7 minutes to be exact. FINALLY, another CM comes over and tells them both to move aside so the rest of us could get our fast passes. THANK YOU!!! Normally, this wouldn't bother me TOO much but since he was a CUTTER I was quietly fuming on the inside.

Ok, so we've got fastpasses and realize that the line is really not that long....about 20 minutes so we decide to save the fast passes for later and take our first ride now. Here are some pic's I took of the line que....


















Next we headed over to the Honey I shrunk the kids playground area to let DS run off some extra energy.



DH convinced him to stick his hand in the dogs nose just at the time the dog exhales. Almost scared the poop out of DS! He wasn't happy with us for a couple of minutes after that. That is, until he found his favorite slide....


CONTINUED IN NEXT POST........

After this we head over to meet & greet Lightning McQueen & Mater! I have photopass pics of this....








After this we decided it was time to meet some Monsters!!!



Should I go closer??


My...what a big EYE you have!


YIKES!!! They're closing in on me!!!






After our family portrait with monsters, it was time for our lunch ADR at 50's primetime cafe'!!

I love that some of the encyclopedia's are the same that my grandma used to have and some that we used to have at my house when i was a kid too!








One thing about being in a small group, we usually get one of the "snack bar" type tables next to a TV set. The underwater boxing cracks me up every time!


No food porn this time but as usual I got the pot roast and as usual I was not disappointed!! I love this place and I'm hoping that we can bring my mother with us next trip so that she can experience this place too. Everytime we are there I think of her.

After lunch I believe we did the Indiana Jones stunt show....maybe it was before lunch....hmmm I can't remember anymore. Anyway, we really enjoyed this show and DS was on the edge of his seat. He had a blast!! I can't believe I didn't take ANY pictures during the show.

We headed out of this park a little later than usual because we wouldn't be coming back after the obligatory nap. On this night we had ADR's for Hoop-dee-doo revue!!!

Up next.....hoop dee doo!

Good Update.

Que for TSM is so awesome...everyone has to do at least once with no fast pass so they can experience the whole thing

I hate line cutters, too

That playground looks like a lot of fun. Have to check that out next time

Love prime time, too..so much fun

Nice update!

Wow hardly any wait for TSM! That is unbelievable. I'm glad that cutters tickets didn't work. However, it's too bad you had to wait behind him. The PP pictures are excellent!

Hey Blue! I'm back!! We FINALLY got our new computer so I am able to DIS like the good-ol days again. Sorry I didn't get to comment on several of your updates, but I read and loved them all!!

THAT is hilarious! Could you post some video for training purposes?

Matt and I say that people like this "Don't Get It"... they just don't understand the Disney mentality. But Mickey knows all... and obviously didn't let him get the FP!! Sorry you had to wait behind the nonsense!

Wow! When we ran to TSM at rope drop, we had a fast pass within 10 minutes and STILL had to wait 45 minutes for the ride. I couldn't BELIEVE how fast the queue filled up. Great pictures!! What did you think of the ride?!

Evil... EVIL place!! Kids love it.. parents dread it!! We were talking the other day about how they should 're-theme' this playground for "A Bug's Life". Not too many kids know the "Honey I Shrunk" movies anyway!!

I agree, I'm glad we did it once with no fastpass. It was great.
Line cutters stink!
Playground is FUN for the kids....not so much for the adults. Kid disappear in 0.5 seconds.
Primetime is one of our faves.

You are right, AMAZING! I love every detail in all of WDW. Next time I'm going to see if I can look at one of those encyclopedia's. They may have them glued down or something.

POT ROAST......I agree!!! I can't wait to have more.

A training video.....now there's a thought! Next trip I'm going to strap the video cam to DH's hand and make a WDW reality show. DH should LOVE you for that.

I think the reason for the wait not being TOO long was because it was a weekday and it was in mid-February. That's why we have always loved going during this time.

I agree about the HISTK playground. They really have no idea about the movie. I've tried to get DS to watch it. He is not very interested. You are right about that place being evil to adults! I bonk my head in there EVERY time and I'm only 5' 2" (and a half ).

We got some really decent photopass pics this trip.

WHAAAAT???? I can't believe you haven't been to hoop-dee-doo!! As someone who acts and does theatre, you MUST go see this show. It is HILARIOUS!! DS cracks up laughing every time. This was out 2nd time to see this show. The first time was that trip when I was sick. I had fun even though I was sick so I wanted to see what it was like when I was well. This time we booked category 1 and got seated center of the stage. I have lots of pics so be on the lookout for my next update.

Not sure why we've never done HDD before But it's fun to know that as many times as we've gone, there are still new things waiting for us!!

Day 4 ~ part 2

I almost forgot these last 2 photopass pics from DHS!




For dinner we headed over to catch the Hoop-dee-doo Revue! This is one of our favorites. This is our 2nd time eating here. The first time we used the dining plan which takes 2 table service credits. Both times we booked the 7:15 dinner show. If you book the 5 or 7pm show on the dining plan you are seated in either category 2 or category 3. The first time since we were using the DP we were seated in Category 2. Which actually was not bad at all. We were sort of stage left. This time I booked out of pocket and got Category 1. We were seated center stage and 2nd row of tables.....PERFECT!!!! We had such a good time as you can tell by our pictures. We can't wait to bring family or friends to this place in the future.







The cornbread here is YUMMY!!!!!


You are served all you can eat at your table. There is fried chicken, bbq ribs, beans, corn bread, mashed potatoes and a dessert at the end. It is also all you can drink of beer, wine & sangria.





In the background you can see the balcony. That's the category 3 seating. There really is not a bad seat in the house!






The finale!! DS even got to join in on the fun.




All in all this show is hilarious and is a lot of family fun. I can't wait to do it again.


Up next......DAY 5 ~ Another full Epcot day & a Henna tattoo!!
