What a great day Isn't nice to have kids that sleep in? We have friends whose kids are always up by 7am regardless of how late they were up the night before. It makes it hard for them to do late nights at all since they have grouchy kids the next day. We are lucky that our girls will sleep in, it made it much easier to do the evening shows at Disney and not worry about having grumpy's the next day.

for Demetri trying TOT! Jean was anxious to try it too (Ella refused) and while it scared her more than she expected at the time, she now lists it as one of the highlights of our trip!

Isn't Fantasmic a great show?! We regularly watch it on youtube to get our fix

Oh it's definately an advantage when your kids will sleep in. Heck, I'm grouchy when I'm tired.

Demetri will try pretty much everything .... at least once anyway. Yay for Jean! Do you think Ella will try it next time since Jean liked it so much?

I asked Ariana the other day in what order were her favorite parks. DHS was third. Then I asked her what her favorite thing in each park was, and for some she thought about it before answering, but for DHS it was no hesitating - Fantasmic

Well, we saw Alice in 3D and I absolutely loved it! The story was great, the characters were marvelously portrayed and the imagery was just incredible. I'd read a review that the ending was not very strong, but I completely disagree. It was fantastic.

Demetri did end up snuggling into my arm for a few tense moments at the beginning, but towards the end with another potentially scary scene, he tossed his hand at the screen and said, "Nah.... that's not scary!"

Highly recommend you go see it. The was incredible.

We are going to see Alice either next week or the week after I like to wait till the crowds die down. I can't wait to see it I'm glad you gave it a thumbs up!

Yay for a sleep in day. I try to schedule at least one of those for our visits. If not, we know we'll be too tired to keep movin'. Look at Mr. Demetri trying new things....jumping in the pool and getting his face wet and riding Tower of Terror.

Your pictures of Hollywood Studios are great. You got some really good pictures!

I saw Alice yesterday and think the same as you, it was brilliant.

Which character did you guys like the best? I think for me it was the Hatter hands down

The theatre was definately full. The boys were off playing some video games before the movie started and Ariana and I had to fight off the masses from taking their seats.

Absolutely two thumbs up.

Oh for sure the Hatter was the best character. Johnny Depp played it perfectly. Very eccentric but not over the top and not creepy. The White Queen made us laugh too just with her mannerisms....

Resort days are great. Ours usually turn into half days which works for me... otherwise I start getting antsy not being in a park. I will move it up in our itinerary next time though, I do think I scheduled it rather late.

Demetri definately keeps up with his big brother and sister, that's for sure! He's sooo excited about the rides he's tall enough now for our next trip.

Hey Sarah! I think my favorite part of the TSM queue is just before you jump on the cars to get going. It really looks like Andy's room and you feel like you're playing amongst all the toys.

The White Queen was and so was the Red, so funny, Helena is a great actress too and you could tell that she enjoyed the role.

i agree, the cheshire cat was AWESOME!
If i had to pick a favorite character though, i would have to go with the mad hatter ... jonny depp does such a terrific job with all of his characters!
