Day 4 – Part 4

After we were done, we went over to Beach Club to check out the decorations there.

Chocolate carrousel.









Some more Christmas décor.





We looked at the gift shop.



And thankfully avoided buying anything.



After that, we headed back to Boardwalk for an early night. We had another early morning coming up !!

Day 5 – Saturday, November 26, 2011 – Hollywood Studios – Part 1

We got up early again – about 6:30 AM – We had early 8:00 AM EMH. So I left DH to get the kids up and moving while I went over to the Bellevue Lounge and used some snack credits for breakfast.

I got DH and I each a chocolate croissant.



Sorry, I was hungry. These were so good with coffee in the AM.

I got DS a cinnamon roll



and DD some Special K. We ate and headed down to the dock so we could catch the boat to Hollywood Studios.

And ……. The dock was closed. No boats running. This was 30 min. prior to park opening. Yeah. There were not happy people there. Not happy at all.

This was all DH needed to head towards the car. On the way to get the car, we let a CM know that the boats weren’t running and there was a bunch of unhappy folks at the dock. He seemed genuinely alarmed that the boats weren’t running and said he would call someone and got on the phone. So, I don’t know what was going on, but we drove to Hollywood Studios and got there before 8:00 AM. YAY !!

We waited with the masses



And joined the melee in the mad dash to Toy Story Mania. Who knew this ride would live up so well to it’s name ??



Anyway, my BFF and were discussing our strategy on the day before and she said that we should just go ahead and ride it and not get a FP. So we did.











































It took about 15-20 minutes and then we were able to get FP’s for the rest of the day for other rides instead of waiting for TSM.

We love it, too and didn't get to do it last trip because we got to Hollywood Studios too late in the day. So we were happy that we got to ride it.

I just love the queue. There is just so much imagination in it. One of Disney's best !! I love that it has toys we all played with when we were little. So fun !!

I REALLY want to get to TSM this time around! Everything about it looks like so much fun! And a chocolate croissant is pretty much the perfect way to start a Disney day!

Day 5 – Part 2

When we got out the FP window ….. at 8:20 AM was for 12:10-1:10.





It was still kinda nuts over by Toy Story Mania …… but the rest of the park ??? Not so much.





DD wanted to sign up for the Jedi training, so I took her over there while DH and DS went over to get RnR FP’s



So I signed her up and her Jedi training was for 11:20 AM.

And after that DH and DS were back, so they rode Star Tours, while I enjoyed the beautiful morning.





They came out of the ride pretty quick and DD wanted to ride again, so DH took her to ride while DS and I waited.



Well DS and his head eating chipmunk that is.



After their second ride, DH and DD met back up with us and DD wanted her face painted. So we said OK.













The kids wanted to check out the Villains shop which had a lot of Vinylmation in it, so we headed over there.

I seem to remember the face painting always being there. Right by the bathrooms there across from Star Tours. Of course it came off when she went swimming later. But she loved it while it was on her and she looked mighty cute !!

Make sure your get Wingnut up early on your HS day. You can't miss TSM again !! You will love it !!

I actually agree with you on this one. If we get there early enough, we can get everything done by lunch and then be free to do something else. DS loves it, though. On our most recent trip, I REALLY loved the Christmas lights. I love all of the parks, but I would say that HS is my least fave. But I still love it !! We have a ressie for 50's Prime Time Cafe in April that I am very much looking forward to.

Yeah, that's my problem too .. the boys love it. They love Indiana Jones and Star Wars and Lights, Motor, Action .. but I could certainly do without those since 2 of these have been the same since forever .. but I'm outnumbered !
This next trip I plan on splitting AK and DHS into one day.

I do love the Movie Ride and TSM. I also loved doing the Animation drawing class. Star Wars makes me sick Rock n Rollercoaster is fun and I am too chicken to ride Tower of Terror I like HS, I just like the other ones better. I can never get enough time in World Showcase at Epcot.
