Great fun...I have to admit...I have never seen Fantasmic...and I really don't have a desire too. ...but I suppose someday I will.

Glad to hear the girls wound up liking the HM. It really is hard when they don't want to go but you're pretty sure once they do they'll love it. We can't get my 9 year old nephew on splash mountain and he rides much scarier things.
Congratulations to Kelly for pulling the sword! I had no idea that actually moved.
I didn't know that the sword would move until I read Nilla's TR. His daughter was able to pull it up also. So, I made it a point to have the girl's try it.

Welcome to this TR.

You really should write a TR, this is my first. I just soldiered up & got one started!

I didn't have any wish to see Fantasmic either. I really didn't know anything about the show. I was so glad that I saw it. It was really amazing! The crowds when trying to get out of the stadium, not so much!

Something I forgot!

When Emily & I sat out the Tower of Terror, we were looking around the gift shop. I happened to notice this little boy run through the shop, looked like he was about four years old. He seemed a little agitated. He started looking around frantically, then started to cry.

I was thinking that maybe he was separated from his parents, when he ran out the door. I started out the door after him & said something to the CM about the boy. The CM went running out the door, caught up with the boy & brought him back into the shop. No one could communicate with him as he spoke a foreign language. A couple of minutes later Papa came out of the ride area, spotted the boy & all was well!

That was such a scary thing & people should keep a better eye out for their children. Thank goodness this had a happy ending.

I am glad the little boy was happily reunited with his father. Scary, indeed, especially with the language barrier!

Hollywood, Downtown Disney & Epcot!

This was Friday & Anne & the DGD's last full day at WDW. We left in a hurry to get back to HS so that Emily could register for the Star Wars Jedi Academy program.



The girls were wearing their new dresses that Anne made for them. Emily's was of the Frog Princess & Kelly had several princesses on her dress. They received many compliments from CM that we passed in the parks.

Here I am bright eyed & bushy tailed to start another day of commando touring!



On our way into HS, as you can see the crowd level was pretty light!



Here comes Emily bringing up the rear as usual. That child was always lagging behind us, we had to keep turning around to make sure that she was still with us.



We were heading over to the registration for the Star Wars thing & Bob took this shot, also no people!

We had some time to fill before Emily had to be at the Padwan School, so for a couple of rides!






This was the first time that I'd ridden this ride. I really had never spent much time in this area of HS. I thought that it was for small children.

I really liked the props, they brought back a lot of memories from mine & my kids childhoods!

Day Four Continued

Next ride up was this one, The Movie Ride at Grauman's Chinese Theater!



I love this ride, it helps that I've seen just about every movie that they show clips of! I really love old movies! We got the gangsters this time, we've got the cowboys on previous trips. The next attraction was to be the Back Lot tour, but it was closed that day. That was a disappointment.

It was off to Star Tours for another great ride! We got a different scenario than our last ride which made the ride even better. Say hello to CP30!



Outside of Star Tours there is this speed racer to pose for photos with. So we took advantage of it.







Emily was getting ready for her appearance at the Padwan school, so we were taking photos of Kelly.

While waiting for Emily to come onstage, Kelly wanted to get her face painted. So off went to accomplish that.





Here is the finished product on one very happy little girl!



This lasted all day, it did cause some problems. Kelly got upset about something & was crying. She started crying harder when told that her face paint would wash off if she didn't stop! It worked out ok, but it was trying for me!!

A happy grandmama & her little flower!



Next up the Jedi Training with Emily!

Fun update!

Your granddaughter's face painting looks really neat! Good to hear that it did stay on and not come off too easily.
Can't wait for the adventure to continue!

Too cute! The face painting matches her dress and is just enough to brighten her face! I can't wait to see the young Jedi!

Just realized I missed your last update. Those dresses are just adorable! Really, really cute. The girls look beautiful and so does the face painting!

Kelly really loved her face painting session. I think that it was a pretty good job for $10. The paint lasted all day which was pretty good for the really hot weather!

I loved those dresses, Anne makes really cute dresses. She likes the girls to be tom boys, but she does dress them in great dresses!

The CM's made quite a few comment about the dresses.
