Disney Trip pt.2

After checking into our hotel, we headed out for a long night at Hollywood Studios.  We got there about 5pm and had extra hours till 11pm.  Here are the kids in front of  the tree right outside the park entrance. 


Right of the bat we were able to convince Jack to ride the Star Wars ride.  He protested through the line but never cried.  He did great and we were so happy to get that under our belt… But each ride was preceded with a big pep talk.

One of the coolest things we got to see there that night was the Osborne Festival of Lights.  Every inch of the buildings were covered in lights and they all danced to the Christmas music. IMG_5892 IMG_5893 Hailey just loved it!IMG_5894 IMG_5895 IMG_5897

It started “snowing” too!IMG_5898 IMG_5899

We ran over to Pizza Planet for dinner! (if you’ve seen Toy Story you know how cool Pizza Planet is!)IMG_5900 IMG_5902

We ate pizza (big surprise) and played a couple of games.IMG_5901 

Darren even played a little too.IMG_5903 IMG_5906

We saw Fantasmic.  It was awesome and these pictures do not do it justice.  IMG_5911  IMG_5919 IMG_5916IMG_5924 IMG_5925 Toy Story Midway Mania! was on our agenda next.  IMG_5926 IMG_5927 IMG_5930

I love, love, love the Toy Story ride & I'm so happy that they enjoyed the Tower of Terror. Was the wait 13 minutes?

The Christmas lights are beautiful - My first trip to Disney was during Christmas and I still remember all those decorations.

I really want to go to Disney at Christmas next time now. That looks so awesome!

Stacia, the Osborne lights were beautiful. I have never been there during the holidays. One day, we will do that. Looks like you had an awesome night....and that was just your first night!

Those lights are beautiful! We love Hollywood--the Toy Story ride is our fav. They make a game for it on the wii and it even comes with 3d glasses. We ordered it for Christmas and hopefully it will be waiting on us when we get home, but it looks like the exact same thing as the disney ride.

Hailey didn't ride the rock-n rollercoaster????!!!! Can't wait to see all your pics!

I know what you mean about the PEP talks before a ride. Michael would sorta lie to Ben about what the ride was worked. He rode Soarin' at Epcot and Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom! I loved looking at your pics and am looking forward to our trip there in July. Coronado Springs looked really nice!!!!

I love all your pics. Looks like you all had such a great time. I can't wait to go there with Abigail one day. I never thought about going at Christmas time but it seems like that's the best time to weather and all the Christmas decorations and lights.
