Disney Anniversary Trip- Day 3- Indiana Jones Stunt show, Lights Motor action, Brown Derby, Toy Story Mania and The Rocking Roller Coaster

on April 11, 2013

Hi guys, as promised yesterday, we are starting today with the rest of Day 3 at Hollywood Studios. We finished lunch and had 15 minutes until the Indiana Jones stunt show, so we grabbed a good seat just in time.

Some of the awesome sets232323232%7Ffp543 3)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 924434;nu0mrj

We didn’t take any pictures during the show because we were enjoying it and the people were everywhere but it was fun. They do stunts from some of the Indie movies and include guest participants in some stuff

Intro to the ride232323232%7Ffp5437;)nu=3642)7 ;)533)27337 ;62425 ot1lsi

The ride was well the ride, but they changed it from the Gangster scene to the Western scene, I preferred the gangster. I know this is one that Kris will never want to go on again, it is definitely dated and we had the worst actors I think I have had in all my times on the ride. But I felt he needed to experience it at least once.

From there we went to do Star Tours

The ride was fun as usual but we always seem to get in trouble with Darth Vader, we rode twice and then headed over to see Lights, Motor, Action but first we got shrunk and wandered around in the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground

The show was cool and they show alot of tricks that they use. I liked it but the smell of the burnout and fire kinda got to me. After the show we started our way back to the other side of the park for our dinner reservations at the Brown Derby, I still wasn’t feeling 100% so we stopped at Pizza Planet so I could wash my face and Kris could see the theming.

Pizza Planet oooooooohhh!

232323232%7Ffp734;2)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 999934;nu0mrj

I felt much better after and we headed to dinner after getting a Maleficent pressed penny from the machine at Pizza Planet 🙂

We headed over to the Brown Derby and were seated in about 10 minutes. We were greeted by this beautiful table. A round booth with confetti on it and champagne and strawberries

For our appetizers, I ordered Andouille-crusted Prawn over Black Diamond Cheddar Grits, Wilted Greens, and Ancho Oil

232323232%7Ffp543 4)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 926 34;nu0mrj

Kris got Blue Lump Crab Spring Rolls Snow Crab Claw, and an Asian Slaw with spicy Miso Aïoli232323232%7Ffp54433)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 926;34;nu0mrj

They were both really good, but we LOVED the grits, so good.

For our Entrees, I got Char-glazed Filet of Beef with a Red Wine Reduction, topped with a Cabernet and Roasted Shallot Butter, over White Truffle Oil Wild Forest Mushroom Mashed Potato, Sautéed Haricot Verts, and Golden Beets232323232%7Ffp73493)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 927434;nu0mrj

Kris ordered Free-Range Roasted Breast of Chicken stuffed with Sweet Pepper, Chorizo, and Smoked Cheddar Cheese over a Celery Root Purée, Coriander-dusted Jumbo Asparagus, and a Roasted Red Pepper Sauce232323232%7Ffp543 ;)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 927634;nu0mrj

The picture isn’t great sorry, was too excited to eat232323232%7Ffp54398)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 927734;nu0mrj

But as you can see from the plate, it was awesome.

The filet was cooked perfectly and the compound butter was delicious. The chicken was nice and the stuffing was so good. Yum!

Dessert we got Banana-White Chocolate Toffee Tower on Cocoa-Almond Cookie and Bananas “Foster”232323232%7Ffp54354)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 927 34;nu0mrj

Chocolate Three Ways Praline Milk Chocolate Cream, crunchy Ganache, and Orange-Chocolate Mousse 232323232%7Ffp54368)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 927;34;nu0mrj

They were both beautiful but the orange chocolate was too much for me and it was all I could taste. The banana tower was AMAZING! I think it was our favorite dessert of the trip!

Us, very full and very happy 🙂
232323232%7Ffp73498)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 928434;nu0mrj

Was the best dining experience of the trip, our waiter Jerry was very nice and attentive and shared stories about Jamaica with us (where we honeymooned), the food was great and the environment was very romantic. We really enjoyed it.

Once we were done with dinner it was time for our fast passes for Toy Story Mania, so we made our way over to the Pixar Studio area and hopped in line

The theming is too cute, love the child drawing of Buzz

232323232%7Ffp54434)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 99 234;nu0mrj
The  whole line is pretty neat, we saw balsa wood planes, tinker toys, blocks, crayons and dominoes. The ceiling is a checkerboard 🙂
232323232%7Ffp54395)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;(2(;9534;nu0mrj

Too cool, right?!232323232%7Ffp5436 )nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 928734;nu0mrj

Outside we saw the little green men hanging a scrabble board, it says “you’ve got a friend in me.”232323232%7Ffp734 ;)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 928 34;nu0mrj

Next we decided to check out The Legend of Jack Sparrow

the set232323232%7Ffp54354)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 928;34;nu0mrjTruthfully this was a big let down to me, I expected a show and it turned out to all take place in this area, all standing huddled next to each other.

The project things around the room, on the screen on the ship and on the ship. Lots of stomping your feet and being a pirate by saying Argh! To help defeat baddies, nothing I feel I will need to do again

232323232%7Ffp5436 )nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 929334;nu0mrj

The ship was neat looking though

After that we were determined to get on the Rocking Roller coaster since we couldn’t get a fast pass and it was the last ride we needed to do at the park. So we hopped in line, wait said 30 was probably closer to 50.

I totally forgot how fast the take off is on that ride, but it was fun, even with my head banging into the restraints the whole time, lol!

After we did some shopping, I was determined to get my much earned Hollywood Tower Shirt, since I didn’t get one in Disneyland232323232%7Ffp543;3)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;; 929934;nu0mrj

Awesome window display at the Tower

Hubby’s new Chernabog shirt


If you like Noah’s work and can’t head out to Disney, you can order some of the Giclee’s at the Disney Store site or get the shirts and prints at Noah’s site here. I ordered the Evil Queen apple shirt yesterday, since I talked myself out of it while we were there, I know silly, huh?!

Kris told me I should have bought it there (and he was right), but with shipping it cost about the same as buying it then, so I am cool with getting it two weeks late.

Then we went to see if Starring Rolls was still open, to cross another cupcake off our list, sadly they were not.

232323232%7Ffp7347;)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;(2(;9734;nu0mrj

But Hubby made things alright as always 🙂 232323232%7Ffp54433)nu=965;);59)25 )WSNRCG=363;(2(;9834;nu0mrj

Then we headed back to the hotel on the bus, still in time to check out the shop and get drinks before heading to our room for the night.
