Hollywood Studios

After Animal Kingdom, we hurried over to Hollywood Studios to make sure we covered all four parks before Nicole left the next morning to spend Thanksgiving with Jordan. The entrance to Hollywood Studios looks almost exactly like the new California Adventure entrance, and the park itself mimics the real Hollywood area here in California. 
Except for the giant magic Mickey hat, of course. That's not anywhere in California.
We rode Tower of Terror a few times and then raced over to catch Fantasmic in the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater.
The next morning, we headed back to Hollywood Studios to catch a few things we'd missed -- most importantly, Star Tours and the Jedi Training Academy for my baby brothers. 
Using the force to open the doors on Star Tours.
They took their Jedi Training very seriously and successfully defeated Darth Vadar. It was a definite highlight.
We wandered around fake Hollywood a bit more, touring the Hollywood backlot, checking out real movie props, and stepping into classic movies in the Great Movie Ride.
Jakey made good use of his stroller time and caught up on sleep. Then, since it was Thanksgiving and all, we grabbed a few turkey legs for lunch in between stunt shows.
After few more rounds on Tower of Terror and Rockin' Roller Coaster plus a photo-op with a green Army man from Toy Story, we were ready for our afternoon break.
A couple hours later, we were back for the most impressive Christmas lights display ever.
Just wait 'till you see it!


  1. I swear April went with you guys?!?!?!

    Jake is just growing so insanely fast..

    I just really need to go to Disneyworld/Harry Potter World.. Hum.

  2. Haha, yes, April was there! But just for the first couple days. She and Alex had to get back to Virginia to host Thanksgiving for a bunch of the college kids that couldn't make it home.

    Also, yes and yes to your other points. :)
