Hi guys, so yesterday was the last post for day 2 of our trip, however I just wanted to add one more sweet thing for our anniversary, when we got back to our room that night, we found this 🙂
A congratulations picture from Mickey and Minnie, too cute! This is why I love Disney.
Ok now onto day 3, Hollywood Studios! So as many of you know I have been anxiously awaiting the meet n greet with Ralph and Vanellope from Wreck it Ralph, especially meeting Vanellope cause she’s adorable!! So I made a hoodie and some hair clips inspired by her, to show her when we met her today 🙂
We hopped on the bus and we were there in no time, trip is pretty short from Art of Animation.
So we were running over to grab our fast passes for Toy Story Mania when we stumbled upon the Wreck it Ralph meet n greet, so we went there instead.
Fix it Felix Jr
Look there they are, lucky kids!
Now about Ralph and Vanellope, they too have big hands and do not sign autographs, but they give you this awesome card with them and their autographs on it and it also functions as a photopass in case you don’t have one, another free souvenir!
The photographer and Kris showed Vanellope my hair clips and outfit and she LOVED them, she hugged me and we bounced around in circles, was so much fun. I would say this is one of my favorite character interactions this time.
Really made my day to see how much she appreciated my work and I loved that they caught it on camera 🙂
Once we were done with the meet n greet we proceeded to get our Fast Passes to Toy Story Mania and then ride the Tower of Terror before we ate , so I wouldn’t get sick.
On our way to grab our fast passes we saw this
And a green army man, too cool 🙂 I am totally glad we got our fast passes so early in the day we were already at 7:40pm for our fast pass and it wasn’t even 11:30am and the park closed at 9, so we almost missed getting a fast pass and the line wait was at 90 minutes already, eek!
Now we are off to scare me to death, I don’t really like up and down rides in fact they make me feel like I am going to be sick, so I did this for Kris and I trudged reluctantly up and rode the Tower of Terror, now I can at least say I have done both parks, but I can’t say it has got any easier, ugh!
Hollywood Tower of Terror
I was super nervous and wanted to distract myself so I focused on the beautiful theming and little touches that made this area look like Old Hollywood
The garden area was beautiful but I blinked and…She got closer! Ok, maybe not maybe I moved closer, but still, it is creepy 🙂
The aged patio area with its empty water fountains was a nice touch too
Food cart covered in dust
And the ride itself, I am sure you can see Kris looks fine, I on the other hand am totally screaming my head off, lol!
In case you couldn’t find me
Phew, ok we survived! I will say this though, the show is a billion times better in Hollywood Studios than at California Adventure, it is longer and the elevator actually moves on a track before the horrific event.
Now that I am successfully shaken up, lets go get some lunch.
Kris was looking for a buffet so we went to Hollywood & Vine, little did we know till we got there it was a Disney Jr character meal. Oh well, was fun to watch the kids since we had no idea who these characters were and the food was really good.
Mural at Hollywood and Vine
Brownies, cheesecake, marshmallows, chocolate covered fruit, red velvet, carrot cake and coconut bars (we shared this plate)
The food was really good, my fave was you guessed it, the crab and lobster mac and cheese and the parmesan chicken was really yum too.
That is where we will stop the trip report today to give you some very awesome news!
Omg!! Hubby booked us a trip to Disney Paris for the 20th anniversary and hopefully the Halloween stuff will be going before we leave!! Yay!! I am so excited!
5 months, 2 weeks to Paris, it is my birthday present (does he know how to do birthdays or what?!) I can’t wait!
So that was the big news, it was really big news, huh?!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post, tomorrow we will see some stunt shows, ride some more rides and enjoy the Brown Derby for dinner, hope you visit tomorrow to end day 3 of the trip report.
