Hollywood Studios

This may have been Roy and I's favorite day. There were so many things the kids loved. This was the first day that Audrey started getting a fever, so by the end of the day she was dwindling. But other than that, it was a blast.

There was one thing we were bummed about going into the park. We knew the following week at Disney World was going to be Star Wars week and that they were launching the new Star Tours ride that week. I have tons of memories of riding the original Star Tours and Roy is a huge fan. Evy and him watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars together almost every Friday night. When we got to the parking station the parking attendant told us that they were having a "soft" opening of the ride this week and that we should in that direction the first chance we got. Let's just say that we ran to the ride. We walked right on in. Roy first went with Evy and then I went on her when they got back. While I was waiting I got chatted up by one of the employees at the Star Wars ride. He was spouting off so much Star Wars info that I almost fell asleep. I believe that a couple of times he even started speaking in a different language. It was pretty funny. Evy came running off the ride to come get me and she said I just had to go because it was the coolest thing that she had ever seen!

Next Roy and Evy headed to the Tower of Terror. I was a little hesitant to let Evy go on the ride but she was certain that she wanted to go. Audrey and I just hung out. In the end, Evy ended up loving it and Roy was a little shaken.

Next we headed to watch the Little Mermaid. We sat in the very front and Audrey loved it. She kept on saying "Hi" to Ariel and pointing out the bubbles! Evy took the picture of Audrey and I.

We went to the playground of "Honey, I shrunk the kids". Honestly, it kind of freaked me out. I was kind of panicking that we would lose one of the girls. We literally were only in there for 5 minutes until I ended it. Roy and I got a kick out of the San Francisco picture. Now all we have to do is show our kids the picture and tell them that they have been to San Francisco. It kind of made me miss it......well, that's a whole other post!

Then we went to the Indiana Jones Stunt Show. It was awesome. Sabrina got chosen to be one of the participants. Unfortunately, the pictures of her turned out blurry. I would like to think that she was just moving to fast for me to capture :).

Then we headed to the Playhouse Disney show. The girls have really been into the show, "Jake and the Neverland Pirates" and that just happened to be in the show. Evy had a blast. They showered the audience with Gold Deblooms and Evy started grabbing as many as she could. I think she thought they were really gold. She was bummed when we said she couldn't take them home. Audrey kind of already started to "check out". We headed to the Toy Story ride before we headed out for the day. Toy Story was seriously awesome.

The one thing I wanted to make sure to buy were Mickey Mouse hats for the girls. I just love them and I hope they keep them forever!
