Disneys Hollywood Studios

Roller coasters, Roller Coasters, Roller Coasters! Jake absolutely loved the intensity of Hollywood Studios. He rode the Rockin Roller Coaster three times, and the Tower of Terror twice. We all got sick on Star Tours, but the boys thoroughly enjoyed the Star Wars Theme. We came home with a Darth Vader Goofy, Luke Skywalker Mickey, and an R2D2. Boys, Boys Boys! They were in absolute Heaven!

Disney Day Five

Unfortunately Gavin started acting a bit unhappy on day four, and was really unhappy by the time we got home from our late night halloween party. Chris and I spent the morning driving around from urgent care to urgent care looking for a place that had less than a four hour wait. Meanwhile everyone else packed up and headed for a leisurely day at Epcot Center. With a diagnosis of ear infection, and a few drugs later we caught up with them. The big boys thoroughly enjoyed the race track, and everyone seemed to enjoy the finding Nemo ride and exhibits. I got to take the kids on my childhood favorites including "journey to imagination", or the figment ride as we always called it, and we even saw "Captain EO" in 3D. Classic! It was so fun to make new memories with my kiddos while reliving my childhood.

Best Trick Or Treating Ever!!!

While preparing for our trip to Orlando I came across an advertisement for "Mickeys not so scary Halloween party", I knew instantly that we had to attend. Our family loves Halloween, and what could be better than trick or treating in Disney World? I was not disappointed! In order to attend you had to purchase special tickets, so the number of people in the park during the special after hours party was limited. We enjoyed a special Halloween fire works show and parade, and got to ride on anything we wanted to with relative ease. Who could forget the ride of the headless horseman? It was awesome! It was definitely one of our favorite experiences while there. We may never have another Halloween quite as exciting as that special night!
