    The second full day in the parks started off at Disney Hollywood Studios. We were off to a good start...everyone was ready on time and headed to the bus. Once we arrived we hit the shops. My friend and her mother spent a lot of time in the shops, but this was ok -- we waited for my brother to arrive to join us for the full day.

    Once my brother arrived I gathered all of the park tickets and headed to toy story mania for fast passes. The line was over an hour and our fast pass was set for 6:30. This put a wrench into our plans a bit. After getting the the fast passes we headed to see Beauty and the Beast. Beauty and the Beast was great as usual and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

    We then headed over to the animation court yard. While on our way we wanted to stop and take pictures w/ the photo pass cast members. My friends mother immediately told my husband -- ' we are not here to take pictures'. This is fine, but we are here to capture this major pictures. We told them that they could go ahead and we would catch up with them later. They stayed with us.

    We then went to see Voyage of a Little Mermaid. My friends mother said we will do this, but after this we are doing something for boys. We then mentioned that they were free to do whatever they wanted. We would do the muppets again if they wanted.

    After the Voyage of a Little Mermaid we headed over to EPCOT for lunch at the UK. The boat ride was nice and relaxing. We made it a little early and hey were able to accomodate us. We had a great lunch -- all seemed to enjoy. I know there are much better places to eat at EPCOT, but this was the most affordable option to do the candlelight processional reserved seating.

    During lunch I spoke with my friend about the toy story mania fast pass. I asked if she wanted to go back to the studios to do toy story mania ...I realize it was a lot of park hopping for one day. She said she would do that and then would play coming back to EPCOT to see Illuminations by ear.

    Earlier that day and before our trip I explained to my friend that my wdw college program roommate was going to be on vacation at the same time and we were going to try to meet up for a bit to catch up. ON the way I received a text that they were at the stuidos. I told them we had a fast pass and would love to see them before they left the park.

    While entering Toy Story Mania I hear someone call out my name. I turned around and my old roommate, her son, and husband were waiting for me. I ran over to see my friend. I hadn't seen her in almost 10 years -- when she was in my weddding. She lives in PA and I live in LA....getting together has not been easy. Well, as I was making introductions her mother said...come on give us our tickets...lets get going. Totally rude! Then I see my friend waving to me to come on. I hugged my friend and apologized and said we would meet again later. In retrospect I should have sent them all on their way and I should have stayed with my friend. However, my little one wanted me to ride with her. I was torn...

    While waiting in line my friend leaned over to me and apologized for her mother behavior. I was taken off guard and actually thought her actions were just as rude.

    My friend was gone after the ride -- my friend, her son, and her mother decided not to join us for illuminations, so they headed back to the resort. My family headed back to EPCOT to see illuminations. After Illuminations we headed back to the resort.

    Earlier in the day we discussed the plans for Wednesday. She wanted to make sure that we did some attractions that her son wanted to do. I told her we were doing every one of the attractions that her son wanted to do. At this point we were all still on good terms. We made plans to be ready to leave at 9am....on the bus.

    More later....
