Day 4-Hollywood Studios (and a little more Epcot) ( a tiny bit of Magic Kingdom…)
Hollywood Studios was a lot of fun! The better attractions are definitely for the taller kids…44” and up! (Tip: Try to get a fast pass immediately for Toy Story. This was the one ride we did not get to go on during our trip. When we arrived at the park at 10:30 the fast pass time was for 7:30 that night and we had dinner reservations prior to that. People who went on the ride said it is not much different than Buzz Light Year so I wasn’t too upset to miss it) My five year old LOVED Tower of Terror, we did it at least 3 times and we saw the parade that is special to this park.
Another thing my daughter enjoyed was the American Idol event in which she got to sing a song for a “casting director”. Very cute!
I myself went on Rock n’ Rollercoaster and it was a great ride with an Aerosmith theme. Other highlights were the American Movie ride, fun and interactive. I found all the rides and attractions in this park fun and well thought out. Definitely appealing to the adult and older child.
Another fun thing we did in Hollywood Studios that happens at Christmastime is the Osborne Family Lights. It is an amazing display of lights set to music down the NY street set in a section of the park. Very crowded, but excellent!
That night at 6 we left Hollywood Studios via boat launch and headed back to Epcot for dinner in Japan. My daughter loves Hibachi and this restaurant was very nice. After dinner we had just enough time to get the stamps and signatures from the countries we had missed and complete her passport. As we left we again got to see the amazing fireworks and show that is presented there. We jumped on the monorail, switched at the Transportation station and went to Magic Kingdom for a quick last night. My daughter loved Thunder Mountain so we did that one more time and lucky for us….we also got to see the Electric Parade! I remember that from when I was a kid!
Today we leaveL We hit Magic Kingdom one last time. Used our last snacks up from the meal plan and headed to the airport at about 3pm. It was a great few days in Disney and I definitely feel like we made the most of our time there.
Any questions….PLEASE ASK…I may not know the answer…I am no Disney expert, but I can give you my opinion and perspective!
