Bryans Do Disney, Day 8: Hollywood Studios

We started the day in Hollywood Studios by meeting Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates (or as the girls say...Jake and the nenenen piwates).

Then we ate lunch at the 50's Prime Time Cafe, a 1950's classic American, family gathering themed restaurant.  It has been my favorite restaurant so far as far as the theme goes.  The hosts and waiters called us "kids" and our waiter reminded us to use our manners and keep our elbows off the table.

Next we went to the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.  As the name suggests, it's a stunt show based on Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark.  The emcee used guests from the audience as extras, and there was a lot of action and fire.  The girls freaked every time there was fire or an explosion.  They didn't care for the show too much, but Stephen and I enjoyed it.

Stephen took Emory to ride the Star Wars Star Tours 4D show while I walked Harper around in the stroller so she would take a nap.

Next I took Emory to meet Buzz Lightyear and Woody.

The waiting line had lots of photo props, and she enjoyed taking a picture in each one.

And we even got to meet one of the green Army men!

Stephen rode the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror while the girls and I went to the Beauty and the Beast live show.  The girls loved it!

Then we met Sofia from Sofia the First. 

Next we rode the Toy Story Midway Mania.  It has been my favorite ride so far.  It's a ride with 3D graphics, and you play several carnival midway games.  You shoot arrows, balls, pies, etc. (it changes with each game) at targets to get points.  Stephen beat the pants off the rest of us.

Stephen took the girls to meet Mike Wazowski and Sulley while I rode the Aerosmith Rock 'n' Roller Coaster using the single rider line.  That single rider line is the best idea ever!  It's a fun ride.  It starts really fast instead of the slow climb uphill like so many roller coasters.

We finished our day at Hollywood Studios with the Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.  It was a hit!  The hosts were two "historians" from Arendelle that quickly recapped the story of Elsa and Anna.  We got to sing along with all the popular songs from the movie, and Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff made appearances.  The celebration ended with bubble foam snow, which the girls loved.

We ate dinner at a restaurant at the Animal Kingdom Lodge resort where we're staying.  It was African and American cuisine, which was interesting.  My allergies have been so bad the past few weeks that I literally can't taste anything.  I sure wish I could this week!

And my daily Disney blog post wouldn't be complete without...

I can't believe Sam has been gone two weeks already.
