YAY back to the report we go...............

so we waited another few minutes buses were awesome.
and headed off to My second favorite park.. Hollywood Studios!! I love the theme, i love the street performers i love it all i think it is just a fun upbeat place!
I had to go the customer service first to pick up our Magic tickets. they of course asked for my KTTW... no where to be found i am going out of mind!!! Husband doesn't have it... GOOD GRIEF NOW WHAT!!! it is missing! panic rose. the CM was so calm and nonchalant said "fuggeta bout it" Chicago joke of course and issued another one!!! I was so RELIEVED!!! She even made a little Mickey head on in case i found the old one adn didn't get them confused! Gave me the tickets and off we went!


this guy is just TROUBLE!!






We stopped and watched some of the street performers who did this "Wata check" it was HILARIOUS! if you like the three stooges then you would love this!!! I only have video of this.. and i have NO idea how to get it on you tube.
But i can say that my kids have this routine DOWN PAT and is funniest thing ever..
so we PULLED the kids away (they were not happy in the least.) but made it over to the show with TONS of people.. i am so glad we had the preferred seating otherwise i would have never had done this.

to be continued....

OK - I agree, that head tilt is getting pretty annoying. It's like someone told her once, "Oh, you look so precious when you do that." and now she does it everytime.

But, at least the boys are more enthusiastic to point at Stitch than they were at Tinkerbell!

it's something to see if you haven't!!I def recommend!!! i don't believe there is a bad seat, we were pretty close. i think if we do it again i would sit farther back.. you couldn't see the fireworks very well.. Plus you can't see Steamboat Willie anywhere else!!!

After the show we wanted to see the Osbourn lights On the way we HAD to do Star Tours. HOLY COW was that fun entertaining and really felt like you were in one of those pod things!!! Matthew is a HUGE star Wars fan.. Did i mention the wait was 5 MINUTES!!!! we did it a couple of times... Nicole wasn't able to do a simulation ride due to her motion sickness. and i do believe this would have put her over the edge... Nicole called and said where she was standing and said she had tears in her eyes over this... now I am THINKING "geesh what a sap" I really didn't know what to expect on the Osbourn lights but i knew there were a lot of lights... Then i turned the corner.

awe isn't the word, neither is shocked, amazed. it was breath taking!!!



I will post more in a few i have tons... I AM OUT OF WORK UNTIL Next year!!!!!
