Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios is such a fun park!!  Great rides, shows, and restaurants.  We spent 2 days here and had a blast.  Dawson's favorites were Jedi Training, Aerosmith's Rock-n-Roll Rollercoaster, Tower of Terror, and Toy Story Mania.  Brady's favorites were Toy Story Mania, Playhouse Disney Live on Stage show, and the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground.  We also enjoyed the Indiana Jones Stunt Show, Lights, Motor, Action car stunt show (how do they do all that?!?!), Backlot Tour, and Great Movie Ride.  We ate at some great places here too - Hollywood & Vine (character dining), Pizza Planet (boys loved it because of all the Toy Story references - and there was pizza), and the Sci-Fi Dine In (a drive-in themed restaurant where you eat in a car - so cool!). 
Toy Story Mania - the newest and most popular ride at Hollywood Studios.  We rode it several times (thanks to visiting at a good time of year with low crowd volume and also the wonderful fast pass system).

Cutie pie!

This is the line segment of Toy Story Mania - Disney even does an outstanding job of making sure that standing is line is enjoyable, with lots to see and do.

Animated Mr. Potato Head talked to everyone that passed by and told jokes.

Dawson ready to hit some targets!

Backlot Tour - we saw a big flood and huge explosion on this portion of the ride.

Look at all those doubloons - he's rich!
