Last day! Hollywood Studios

Here we are! The last big Disney day. We went to Hollywood Studios which was, I think, my favorite park this time. Maybe because I got to meet Mickey :)

Getting to do everything that we wanted to was bit tricky here because a lot of the attractions were "shows" and they had specific times. So that schedule combined with the fast pass schedule was a bit rough. We did meet a lot of characters here, the lines weren't so long. One fun thing we did was take a "test" to see which Disney character we were most like. I was most like Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast. Still not sure how I feel about that one :)

Bill's character was Buzz Lightyear, Parker was Cogsworth (the clock form beauty and the Beast), Emily was Dot from Bug's Life and Molly was, are you ready for it?...Cinderella.

One of the best shows we went to was the big race car stunt show. It was really cool! Lots of crashing and exploding...

My favorite part of the day was winning fast passes to Toy Story Midway Mania. In the History of Animation there was a display of Academy Awards won by Disney. A "cast member" (a.k.a. a guy who worked there) said that 2 out of the ~15 or so in the case were actually the real statues and if we could guess which ones they were, he would give us fast passes for our whole group to the ride. And we got them right! Yay! This ride turned out to be so much fun! You get 3 D glasses and sit in a car with a "gun". When the ride starts it's like an arcade type game, so as you are riding, you shoot the targets and earn points. It was my favorite of the trip.

So, there you have it. The highlights of our Disney experience. We really had such a great time and I am glad our whole family got to go together (we missed you Al). Check out my Flickr page (link to the right) for more pictures. Thanks for tuning in :)
