Hollywood Studios

My son was excited to visit this park because of Star Wars – or should I say Star Tours? Anyway, Star Tours was probably one of my favorite attractions of all Disney Parks! We had time to go twice and found out that the tour was different… C-3PO guided us through a fantastic flight over some galaxy, in 3-D. So cool.

Star ToursA small coffee shop was our stop for breakfast and I found Rémy, the Ratatouille chef. My only stuffed character of the whole trip! Rémy is now in my kitchen, inspiring me.

Hollywood Studios looks like a small town and it is cool just to walk around. Ian refused to go to the Muppet show, so we ended up taking pictures with Lightning McQueen and Mater, and spending quite a bit of time at Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure. Very cool playground, by the way.

Ian also decided to see Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show. It was packed but the place is big and we were able to see everything. It is quite impressive and I really enjoyed it. Ian not so much as he didn’t understand that these are how they make a movie – they are not real! When he got it, he was quite impressed…

Toy Story Mania! had a giant line and no more fastpasses. But we stayed there and got to play the 4D game. Lines are not fun. Period.

The Magic of Disney Animation is a 10-min show that was just a time-filling for us.

Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun! Parade was also a time-filling but Ian seemed to enjoy it.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror had fastpass and, for some reason, we ended up going. 13 floors of fear? Why I went there, I don’t know. But I did. And so my son. It is scary. Very. But well-done, as anything at Disney. Ian, 5 year-old, was proud to be there when another mom said that her 7 year-old passed that one…

Because Ian was just two fingers too short, we didn’t make the Rock’n’Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith. I don’t think we missed much… 🙂

Fact is time was passing and we were feeling relaxed and less stressed, for sure. I just realized that when back home, but something was already changing inside. But this is not about when we got back. Still Animal Kingdom and two water parks to visit!
