    Day 3: Disneys Hollywood Studios: Part Two

    After lunch at the Sci Fi we were ready to hit the hot hot heat again! We had some free time schedualed and then we were scheduled to watch the 3pm Block Party Blast but we decided we were going to skip that and use that time to wander instead.

    First stop was the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show.

    [​IMG]

    A show was just being let in and lucky us, we got front and center seats! Whats not to love about this show? Its one of my faves, probably because Little Mermaid is by far my favorite Disney movie and princess. I love the under the sea number and the movie clips playing in the background.

    Second stop was the animation studio. There were two things I wanted to accomplish in there. Number One: Meet Sorcerer Mickey
    Number Two: Meet the UP characters

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunatly only one of those things happened! Before we got into the character meet and greets we checked out some of the art work. I really loved the Dumbo artwork and the movie cells. Craig said he definitly wants to get some cool Alice artwork for our house.

    [​IMG]

    After wandering the paintings we wandered down to where the character meets were. First was FroZone. I had no real interest in meeting him, I havent even seen the Incredibles. But hes a pretty cool lookin dude and he had no line so we went and snapped a super awesome posed shot with him.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that we headed over to the uP characters but there was a HUGE line so we went over to Mickey instead, hoping the line would be shorter when we were done. Heres us with the head honcho himself, he was a pretty flirty Mickey, blowing kisses and pulling me around. lol

    [​IMG]

    After Mickey we headed back to the UP characters, but the line was SO huge. We still wanted to wander around so we decided to sacrafice the meeting of the up characters. We did get some cute shots of them anyways.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After the animation studios it was time for the bickering to begin. We headed over to Tower of Terror. And this is when my panic attack began to set in. Im not sure as to why but for some reason the thought of going on ToT this year scared the living beegeus out of me. Ive been on it a couple of times before and last time I was pretty scared too but was still about to go on. I told Craig I was pretty scared but I told him Im sure I would still go on. He was pretty insistent that he would really like it if I would go on with him. And I told him I would try my best to go on and we grabbed the FPs.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    thats Craig explaining to me that i better get my bum on ToT with him or ELSE!

    After we got our ToT FPs we decided to hit RnRC.

    [​IMG]

    We snapped some pics and then got into the FP line.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everyone was taking lame "cheese" pics in front of the sign so we decided to be rebelious and stand on the ledge for ours and do a ridiculous pose. After we left we saw people copying our pose. Dont understand why.. since we look like huge geeks (I am pretty happy with this pic though! :laughing:).

    [​IMG]

    After that we entered the line, and boy were we ever glad we got FPs for this line, because all I could hear as we got in line was loud chanting mixed in with the screaming and giggling of teenage girls. I thought to myself could it really be?? and it WAS! Lo and Behold we saw one of the mythical Brazillian Tour Groups you always hear about on the DIS. How exiting..... and annoying! Thank goodness the FP line moved VERY quickly. I couldnt help but feel sorry for the many annoyed looking people around those girls int he regular line. We were quickly seated in our limo seat and off we went!!

    RnRC definitly did not dissapoint. It was SOOOOOOOOO much fun! Its still one of my faves and Craig LOVED it!

    After RnRC it was time for ..... Toy Story Mania! So we headed on over back to Pixar place and into the insane line of TSM.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Even with our FPs we were still in line for QUITE a long time. We finially got to the front of the line and hopped onto our cart thingy and off we went.

    While we both agreed that we probably dont think it was worth the 75 minute wait the regular que now has we did agree that we LOVED it!! It was so cool and we had so much fun playing the games. Both of our arms were so sore. We had made a bet going on while in line that if Craig won I had to go on ToT and if I won I could chicken out without Craig getting angry!


    So who won TSM??? Will I actually go on ToT?! You'll find out on the final part of DHS!

    thank u!!! I wish we woulda met them tooo as they are too cute and i love that movie!

    lol u knwo they secretly probably love the little mermaid show. I promised him if he went to that I wouldnt make him sit through Beauty and the Beast so that sealed the deal!

    Ugh I dunno why that ride makes me so scared. The first time I went to Disney when I was like 15 i LOVED it and went on it a couple times. I dunno what happened!

    yay!!! im so excited for you! I wish i was leaving in 5 days!

    haha you love it! darn ride... its so ugh!!! and thank u! i think maybe i'll rent that movie soon and watch it! is it good?!

    Ooh what a great update! I hope Craig won because...TOT is my favorite ride!!! I'm sorry, I can't help it...I know you were scared! :laughing: I'll still follow along even if you don't get on though! :hug:

    I also love your RnRC pic!! I have to take more fun ones next time. It was mine and my dad's first ride of the morning and we were just not feeling like goofy poses yet. We just look goofy. Isn't it funny though how once you do something "dorky" everyone elses copies you?! Its actually because you're so awesome and fun!!

    It's too bad you didn't get to meet the Up characters. They weren't even out when I was in the Animation Studio. I was quite sad about that!

    Oh and I second you needing to go watch the Incredibles!! I bet Craig would like it! I just so happen to have an Incredibles outfit hanging in my closet, ya know just in case the world needs saving or anything...

    Day 3: Disney's Hollywood Studios: Part Three


    So when I left you hanging last, we were all wondering if Craig beat me at TSM! Well...he did!!

    He was prettty happy about that. I, on the other hand was not. So as Craig gloated about his win and about how i now *HAVE* to go on ToT. Now I was really starting to get scared, but I tried to push the thought back in my mind as we headed to the streets of America. Our next ride was the Backlot Tour.

    We loved the cool movie set look and with hardly anyone around it was easy to appriciate the detail in the set. We stopped and took some pics. Of course!

    We kept walkign and soon ran into the new Power Rangers. We decided to pass them by because lets face it, they arent NEARLY as cool as the power rangers of our day, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!

    Craig did stop and take a pic with the Power Rangers Car though.
    [​IMG]

    Oddly enough I had never really been in this area of the park. We stopped by the Honey I Shrunk the Kids Playground to take some pics, but we left quickly as there wasnt much there for us to do, and we had a schedual we had to keep up with!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We finially reached the Backlot Tour. I had no idea this ride/section of the park even existed. Craig and I REALLLY enjoyed this ride! We were so taken aback by the water rush int he explosion scene LoL. Ive never seen Craig jump so fast! It was hilarious. We got some pretty cool pics from the Tour. Loved the ball from PoTC

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After the tour ended we checked out the Villans Exihibit. It was pretty cool to see some of the movie props and villian costumes! Especially the PotC stuff. (I have a thing for PotC if you havent noticed by this post. What can I say? Captain Jack has my heart.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After the Villans exhibit we tried to go and see the Mosters Inc characters, who i LOVED meeting last time because they were super cute! But unfortunatly for us we were just a minute too late! They were closing the line as we were going in! Boooo O well, Next time right?!

    After that we headed to our next ride on our amazing Ridemax list, which happened to be a ride that always makes me smile, Muppet Vision 3D. Having grown up on the Muppets, Craig was super excited to see this show too.

    It did not disappoint, sure its a bit outdated but I *heart* the muppets and this ride!! Craig agreed!

    After the muppets, it was time for the dreaded walk.... to Tower of Terror. I had every intention of going on.... really I did. I mean I had been on a couple times before, and even though it was scary it was do-able. I went through the que with Craig and I tried not to show him how scared I was, but I was seriously panicking. I guess he could tell and he told me if I really didnt wanna go on I could leave and he wouldnt be mad. So I got to the doors.... and I chickened out!

    I know... How Lame right?! It was totally lame of me, and I felt like such a lam-o waiting for the chicken exit while 5 year olds waited in line with Craig. I waited for Craig in the picture area, expecting him to fully come out and make fun of me and tell me how awesome it was. When he finially emerged the first thing he said was "I cant believe THAT is what you were so scared of. Lamest Ride EVER!" ... and I was like... umm PARDON!? He didnt like it at all!! He said it was cool but the drop was not scary at all. My boyfriend has issues I suppose. He was a bit annoyed at me for abandoning him, but he was alright with me... he just cant stay mad at lil old me for long hehe. I AM gunna try to actually ride it next time though. Seriously.

    After the ToT disappointment all around we emerged into the RAIN! Ugh.... NO! Rain!!! We had been so lucky with no rain so far, so we thought this was the beginning of the end. The Rain had followed us. We had planned to watch Fantasmic this night, as it was our only dat at DHS. We were opamistic the rain would soon pass and we could go and line up for Fantasmic.

    So what did we do to pass the rain you ask?? We shopped! and shopped! and waited.. and shopped! We bought some cute mickey head key chains for our family members, we got a cute magnet and I got this cute little vodoo jack sparrow doll. SO CUTE! I love it! It hangs in my car now.

    We also found some funny shirts

    [​IMG]

    and the real mighty morphin power rangers! yay!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and even jackie chan's hand prints... which I wasnt expectign to look like this!

    [​IMG]
    kinda girly no?

    Well the rain continued to rain really hard so we finially decided that we didnt wanna wait it out anymore because we were tired from all the walking around a long hot day in the sun. We donned our ponchos (well I did) and made a beeline for the bus stop. I was pretty disappointed that we were missing out on Fantasmic, as i LOVED it last time but by that point I was so tired and annoyed from the rain I was ok with going back to PoP.

    [​IMG]

    We quickly arrived back to PoP and grabbed some dinner to bring back to the room to eat. I grabbed a chicken penne alfrado with some tomato sauce.

    This ended up being my fave meal of the trip. It was SOOOO yummy.

    [​IMG]

    Craig got some nachos and loved them too.

    [​IMG]

    I loved loved loved grabbing food from the PoP food court and bringing it back to the room. We pigged out, watched some tv, laughed about the day and just hung out together. Thats what I love most about Craig, hes my best friend and just hanging out with him in our hotel and being silly and watching TV brought me some of my fave trip memories. And its somethign we always do at home and i adore every minute. After doing this for a while it was time to sleep. So I dailed for our mickey wake up call and dozed off.

    Anyways enough mushy mushy. uP next is Animal Kingdom!

    :scared1: NOOOOOOOO!! ToT disappointment! DANG!! How sad!! Did he truly not like it at all or was it just not "scary"? I didn't think it was really "scary", more like EXHILARATING and THRILLING!! I loved it. Oh well.

    So sad that you missed the Monsters Inc characters too. Where are they? I didn't even know where to find them!! :sad2: I'll have to make sure to find them and do the Backlot Tour next time!!

    I think Jackie's hands and name are super girly. Oh well...maybe he was trying to be funny? :confused3 (Emphasis on the trying! :laughing:)

    Can't wait to read more! Pop Food is SOOOOO good! I could go for some right now!!
