What is a must do?

Heading down Sun with kids 12,9,8,5. Two of the boys have never been, the other 2 were a little younger when they went. SO what things must we do at Hollywood Studios? I want them to get the full effect. Any tips will be helpful and appreciated.

Other parks and attractions also?

We usually have a large group. We have to do Tower of Terror. And everyone must participate. I also like to get everybody together for Dinosaur.

TSM, then Star Tours, Star Tours and, oh, yeah, Star Tours again. They mix and match the different destinations/segments of the ride, so it's worth doing more than once.

Oh, and if they're Phineas & Ferb fans, you can meet P&F at DHS!

TSM as many times as possible. Then TOT and RNR. Star Tours - meh. Don't rush there - there is never a long line.

We like to eat lunch at Sci-Fi. Ok food but a really fun atmosphere.

~LOL! I've never seen a line for Star Tours. I *love* the end of August! Anyway, my must do's for DHS are TSMM, ToT, RnR, Star Tours (you may wan't to do this more than once, so plan accordingly), Muppet Vision 3-D, Studio Backlot Tour and the kids love the Honey I Shrunk The Kids play section! DHS is fabulous at night! Have fun!

I am going to venture to guess that you were there right after an Indy show let out. That is the only time Star Tours is crowded.
