Monday-Hollywood Studios

Waiting and waiting on a bus to come get us.

Our own private bus, so nice! ;-)

Dinner was family style skillet, YUMMY!

Makenna enjoying Ribs, one of her favorites.

Trading Pins
We had lots of fun decorating our windows!
Lay Sage down, she is OUT!

    Highlights of Monday at Hollywood Studios

  • So HOT!! It is melting hot.
  • If you are using Disney Transportation, allow well over an hour to get to where you need to be. And be ready to have some patience, you will need it.

  • New Toy Story ride is really fun, all the kids loved it. I am not sure it is fun enough to make the fast passes run out, or would I be willing to wait in an hour line for it, but it was good. (I refuse to wait in ANY line over 15 minutes with Mavery and I think whomever created the fast pass should be filthy rich)
  • Pizza Planet for lunch was a hit with the kids, but not with us.
  • Malaine rode Tower of Terror and did not like it AT ALL! I love it, my very favorite.
  • We had dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe at Fort Wilderness Lodge. We had a hard time figuring out how to get there, which resulted in our own private bus ride.
  • Thought the food was great, kids loved the stick horse races, the tons of bottles of kethcup on our table (you asked for ketchup everyone starts bringing it over) but took almost 3 hours to eat there. That is a LONG time with littles!

  • Mavery has us guessing on if she is staying potty trained or not. And that is all I will say about that.
  • Kids are REALLY into the pin trading. We had never done this before, but after hearing from friends and reading lots about it before we went, I am glad I got them pins before coming. Even Sage & Mavery are having tons of fun with it.
  • Makenna did most of the window decorating, I need to take more pictures after she added some marker to it. Very fun!
  • Sawyer bought a little stuffed Stitch and so he is Sage's new favorite sibling because she loves it! We are now trying to find another, since she sneaks it in her bed and sleeps on it so Sawyer can't have it!

I thought I remembered that Mavery is a SN child?
We were just at Disney yesterday and you can stop by the customer care area and get a medical pass that allows you to bypass the lines for most rides and go in a separate entrance(your whole family included). You can also ask them to use your stroller as a wheelchair so that you can drive her up to each ride if she needs that. Gianna would have NEVER made it standing in the long lines with her issues, especially in the heat.

You don't need to provide medical information from a Dr. either.

Have a great trip~

Sounds like fun! On the way to gymnastics, Adley said, "Where is Shannon?" (She had asked that at least 3 times already.) So, I answered her AGAIN. And then she said, "I love her. . . " Too funny! So, you are missed.

Waiting for a bus at Hollywood Studios is the WORST! When we were there melting this summer we watched multiple buses go by for other locations while waiting for the first one for EPCOT to show up. We love the BBQ place at Wilderness Lodge, too; the food is great but it does take a while.
