First of all we would like to thank everyone who is reading our blog and especially everyone who is leaving comments at the website.
After we got back to the hotel room yesterday in the middle of the night because we spent the whole evening in Magic Kingdom we woke up a little later this morning. A little advantage for us was the change to Daylight Savings Time, which meant we got one hour of extra sleep!
Today we planned to go to the Hollywood Studios, because this was going to be the least crowded of all parks today. Danielle drove us to the Film parking lot and at about 11:30 we arrived at the Studios.
First we checked the waiting-times-board we walked to the Tower of Terror to get ourselves some Fast Passes. Next stop was the Rock ‘n Roller Coaster. The wait was longer as expected due to technical problems. Later on this day it would be closed because of this. We also did the Great Movie Ride and Star Tours.
Because we have the Photopass+ we wanted to get some pictures taken with characters so we went to the Art of Disney Animation building and we got some nice pictures with Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope, Minnie in her so-called “bedazzled” dress and Mr. Incredible & Frozone.
About 90 minutes before Fantasmic! would begin we could get into the amphi-theater and we got ourselves some great seats. While waiting we talked to some strangers from Pennsylvania (Grandmother, Daughter & Grandchild) next to us. They wanted to see Illuminations also this evening so we decided that they could drive with us so they did not had to use the Disney transportation.
Fantasmic! was as expected amazing as was the warm-up entertainment before the show. In comparison to Fantasmic! 3 years ago we think they added some extra fireworks, but that made the show even more amazing!
As the show ended we wanted to leave the park as soon as possible to be in time for Illuminations. Everything went pretty smooth and soon we were at the car and drove together with our “guest” to Epcot where we were able to park close to the entrance en we were more then on time for Illuminations.
As we entered the park we said goodbye to Grandmother Rosanne, her daughter (too difficult name) and granddaughter Bridget and we were heading to get something to eat. We ate something simple in China and went to our favorite spot in Germany to see Illuminations.
Sander took again some beautiful photos of the show we both really love. We even saw the Wishes fireworks in the background.
