… doing Disney: Day 2

I think everyone might have been getting a little bit tired, but we all pushed on! It was way too early in the week to be tired!

 We still had two more completely full days ahead of us!

On Tuesday we visited Hollywood Studios! This park (formerly MGM Studios, so he still calls is that) is Kevin’s favorite of the four parks! It may be because he is a total movie-buff!

Don’t ask them to pose ‘like a prom picture’. They show no mercy.

This was the time to do some of Kevin’s favorite rides. Tower of Terror, (the ever popular) Toy Story Mania, and, of course, Star Tours! He wanted to ride Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith about 7 times… but I had zero intent to do that.

The visit with the Storm Troopers went better for Kevin than it did for me.

I thought that Travis and I would duck off to see Beauty and the Beast while everyone else was losing their stomachs on Tower of Terror… but he braved through it! We really enjoyed Lights, Motor, Action (where Christine actually knows one of the stunt drivers, so we got a total back-stage tour and even got to sit in the cars!)

Kevin’s dad treated us all to a special lunch at Mama Melrose’s that granted us early access (and guaranteed seats) to Fantasmic. This show just happens to be my absolute favorite thing at all of the parks! (you can see a brief overview video of the show on the website) On top of my favorite show… it could be my favorite meal… ever. I had the Charred Strip Steak with Five-Cheese Baked Macaroni, Aged Balsamic-Shallot Butter, and Chianti Wine Reduction. Kevin and I had also shared the anti-pasto tray as an appetizer, so I slathered that steak with leftover bleu cheese. I am imagining it right now, and am almost as happy as I was at the time.

Who doesn't love a good family picture?

We spent ages at the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.

It is actually awe-inspiring,

and could get anyone into the Christmas Spirit!
