Haha, me too! He loves those old classics!

I love the Beach Club, I'd stay there every trip if I could afford it! I would love to try Cape May for breakfast someday, maybe on my next trip! Dinner is really good!

Thanks! I love the Beach Club, it was so nice to just sit and enjoy it for a little while instead of rushing over to DHS!

Ugh, isn't it SO sad that the Oreo Bon Bons are gone?? They were my favorite part of CMC!

Yay for the Osborne lights!!!
The Beach Club is wonderful! I really love it there!

I can't believe the Bon Bons are gone! I guess you can buy them in the marketplace, but still, not the same!

Osborne Lights!!!!

Great F& W photos... I NEED a Godiva Iced Coffee...(seriously I really do... like right about now... Your Pumpkin mousse looked totally yum and I'm with Brandon on the mussels.... I really like them... I just try not to think about it to much...

Ok I really have to try Cape May... I've just really heard too much about it now... (I think they have the oreo bon bons now in the cases at the quick serve in the Beach )

I have to also stick up for Brandon a little about the Disney Cartoons... they're just extra good there on the hotel tvs.... it's true...

Love the window shot of Huey, Duey and Louey...
Haha, I don't know what I'm going to do when I stay at more resorts, because I can already see myself being obsessed with the Boardwalk and the Poly! And so far I've only visited them!

I miss Food and Wine! I need to go back during that time! I want a Godiva iced coffee too!

LOL I agree, it's nice seeing the classic cartoons playing at the resorts!

Thanks, isn't that so cute?

I Love Hollywood Studios!

Monday 11/12, Part 4

Hi everyone! Seems like forever since I've updated here! I can't believe I'm still on Monday, at this rate it will be November again before I finish this TR!

Anyway, when we left off, Brandon and I had just gotten to DHS and were headed towards the Osborne Lights. When we got there, we were happy to see that they were not nearly as crowded as the first night we were there!

I have a ton of pictures, so I'll just post them for you guys to enjoy! The lights are so beautiful!









I love how this next one looks like it could really be the window of someone's apartment!





We waited for a photopass picture under the colorful canopy of lights (I don't know what it's technically called lol!) but it came out terribly, or course, so I'm not putting it up, but luckily, the line wasn't too long so it wasn't a totaly waste of time!

Hidden Mickey!





Something new this year that you could meet Santa Goofy at the Lights! The line was kind of long, but I really wanted to wait, because when else would I get to see Santa Goofy? So Brandon reluctantly waited with me haha! Our picture didn't come out as nice as I had hoped but I suppose I can at least show it to you guys!



By then, Brandon was getting bored and it was around 8:00, so we spent a good amount of time at the lights, so I didn't mind if we left to do something else! But then Brandon remembered he didn't find the purple cat like he did last year, so he had to search for it, he's obsessed!

Finally, he found it! Right when he was about to give up!



We made our way out and went to Star Tours, which had no wait, yay! It was fun, I don't remember anything about which sequence we got, but it was a good time! Brandon wanted to go on again, and there's no way I can handle Star Tours twice in a row, so I said he could go alone and I'd go back to the Osborne Lights! I seriously can't get enough, lol!

I just walked through the lights slowly, taking it all in, in all of it's Christmas/Disney glory. The Osborne Lights are perfect. I've seen them 4 years in a row now, and I don't think I can imagine a holiday season without the Osborne Lights!











After a little while, I figured I should get back to Star Tours to wait for Brandon, and just as I walked up to the exit, he came out, so that was good timing! I think by then it was officially magic hours so I was anxious to get to the Tower of Terror. Unfortunately, I checked the wait time app and it said it was 40 minutes so we took our time walking over there.



Since I was hoping the wait time would go down a little and I was kind of hungry, I decided to get a turkey leg. I always get one when we are at DHS, I don't know why, it's kind of become my tradition! Brandon doesn't like them, and even though they are kind of gross if you really think about it, I love them, they remind me of my childhood trips to Disney!

Once I finished my turkey leg, we went over to the Tower of Terror and it was only a 5 minute wait, yay!





The creepiest CM was there that night in the library, he was really into his bellhop character! When it was dark, he would sneak up on people and just appear next to them like magic, and everyone was screaming and freaking out, it was hysterical!

We went on and then ran right back through the queue to go on again, and he was still there, being just as creepy! When he saw my Kermit shirt, he said to me in a Kermit voice "enjoy the rest of your trip" and did a little Muppet-y head shake as he said it! It was awesome! I'd do anything to be a CM, especially at that ride? It must be so much fun!

After we went on ToT twice, we went over to Rock N Rollercoaster and went on there! I don't remember how long the wait was, but I don't think it was too bad!



Once we got off RnRC, the park was almost ready to close, it was pretty empty. I think we walked over to ToT to see if we could ride one last time, and we couldn't, which means it must have been after midnight.



We started to make our way out of the park and I took one last picture, because I thought it looked so beautiful, with the Christmas decorations and hardly anyone around! (I also love how DHS absolutely BLASTS their Christmas music, it is SO loud! Which obviously has nothing to do with this picture, but it just reminded me of it!)



I was just SO happy that night! One of my favorite memories which I've mentioned 1,000 times in previous TR's is from the first trip I took with Brandon and how during evening magic hours at DHS, we just ran back and forth between ToT and RnRC all night because there were NO crowds! I've always wanted to do that again, but every time we've come back, the crowds have been too high, and this was the closest we have gotten to doing that in a long time! So between the Osborne Lights and hardly waiting for ToT and RnRC, it was a perfect night at Hollywood Studios. I really love that park, Epcot is my favorite and the Magic Kingdom is perfect, but I really love DHS too. It was my favorite when I was a kid, maybe that's why!

We found our car and went back to POR and went to sleep! It was such a fun filled day and we were both exhausted! And luckily we had a late breakfast ADR the next morning, so we didn't have to get up too early!

Up next...Breakfast, and a spontaneous decision that turns out to be AMAZING!

Wow this sounds like a perfect day! F & W all day and then a basically empty DHS that night? I planned two full days for this year specifically for F & W because we never get to try all the things we want to!

I've been thinking about going back to Disney in December again.... We've only gone once and that was back in 2006! The castle didn't even have icicle lights yet! And we definitely didn't know enough to go see the Osborne lights! Maybe next year....

On a side note, we went out to West Farms tonight and all of the RFC stuff is gone...there's just a wall there now. It was so sad!

Sounds like a great night at DHS! Awesome pictures of the Osborne Lights. If I don't get to see them this year I will seriously cry. It has been way too long!

Sounds like a great day at Epcot and your favorite kind of evening at DHS. Although the Studios is definitely my least favorite park, I can't wait to go back there to ride TOT in June and August, and to see the Osborne Lights in December. Those lights are worth the price of admission and you got some great photos of them.

Your pictures of the Osbourne lights are really awesome and you found the cat! Yeah!!!!!

That CM at ToT really sounds like a hoot! I think he would have completely freaked me out.

Great evening in HS! Perfect trifecta - the lights, ToT, and RnR!

Ahhhhh the Osbourne lights. I only got to see them once, and it was three years ago. Can't wait to see them again! So amazing.
You met Santa Goofy!! How awesome! And I love your shirt!
The creepy CM sounds awesome. I'd love to do that if I worked there!
Sounds like a really amazing night!

Oh, those beautiful Osborne Lights!!! I can't get enough of them, they are simply the best thing about Christmas at Disney World. I used to love the days of going back and forth between ToT and RnRC. Now I'm just thankful to get to ride each one at least once a trip! But it was fun while it lasted.
