Disney Day 4

Josh (Red Ranger), Hannah (Music Mania), Sarah (Tinkerbell), and Will (? Star Wars)

It took a few days, but finally we had it. We decided that just like with homeschooling, "An ounce of morning is worth a pound of afternoon!" We were in line to enter Hollywood Studios about 15 minutes before the park opened. As we went through the gate, I collected all of our keys to the world and went on a scout mission to the Rockin' Roller Coaster to get our fast passes. Everyone else booked it to the Toy Story ride. After getting our fast passes, I hauled across the park and hopped in line with everyone else. We had a very short wait until the Toy story ride, and then we were able to go straight over to the Rockin' Roller Coaster with no waiting!

The Toy Story ride was so cute! It was a 3-D interactive ride that made you feel like you were on the midway of a carnival. We all loved it! After Toy Story, we headed over to the Rockin' Roller Coaster. Josh took his place on the front row and was ready for action! We all loved this one! Next, we went to one of my personal favorites of the week... The Muppet 3D show! I love the muppets, and this was hilarious!

Wow, we had accomplished a lot by the time we were usually just entering the park! It was lunch time, and we had reservations at the Prime Time Cafe. This is a restaurant where each table is designed to be like a kitchen from the 50's. The waiter was like mom or dad serving your meal. We decided our waiter was like a yankee dad, because he kept calling us brats and not being very kind! It was funny, though. I changed my mind about my drink, and so he brought me one of everything. Then, when it was time for dessert, he brought the piece of chicken that I didn't finish covered with whipped cream and sprinkles! We hid it in Sarah's leftover chicken pot pie, and so I got to get my ice cream... However, before the waiter took her plate, she had to eat one more bite! She assured us that she picked a bite without my chicken in it!My not-so-yummy "dessert!"

Right after lunch we went on a Star Tours ride... a simulator of the Star Wars ship. We went to a car stunt show (Of course, Josh informed us that he wants to be a stunt driver when he grows up), the boys went on the Tower of Terror, and the girls got in line for more autographs.

3 Super Heroes!

Finally, Hannah and Will went with my parents to the Indiana Jones stunt show, and Josh, Sarah, and I went to go wait for the Power Rangers! Josh is a HUGE Power Rangers fan... He is at that age where he LOVES them. After taking a back seat to many parades, we made sure that we would have front row spots! We got our snack and parked ourselves right where we knew they would be coming.
It paid off! We found out which Rangers were coming and where they would be standing. Josh wanted Red Ranger's autograph first (since his face was painted to match), so we got to be first in his line. He gave Josh a thumbs up over the face painting, signed his and Sarah's autograph books, and got pictures made. We had time to run over to the Green Ranger's line and do the same.

As the Rangers were loaded up to leave, the most exciting thing of the afternoon happened. We were standing right in front, and Josh was waving good-bye to the Power Rangers. The Red Ranger hopped up to his spot, pointed right at Josh and gave him a thumbs up. Boy, did I have one THRILLED little boy! He talked about that moment for the rest of the afternoon!
