Day 3- Hollywood Studios and Chef Mickeys

We spent our third day, Saturday, at Hollywood Studios. There were parts of this park that we loved, but overall, it was the most difficult for our children's ages. We got there and went straight to the new Toy Story ride, which is SO fun! We actually did it 3 times!! The rest of our morning was spent watching several shows including: Little Mermaid, Playhouse Disney, and Beauty and the Beast. In between show times we walked around and saw a few of the highlights of Hollywood Studios!

Jay felt very strongly that we have our picture made in front of the iconic sorcerer's hat! This was the best we could do with the sunlight!

We had lunch at Hollywood Play and Vine where we met two of the Little Einsteins and JoJo and Goliath. There wasn't anything specifically wrong about this one, but it was their least favorite.

Jacob was SO hungry we had a hard time getting him to put his fork down for hugs!

Goliath hugs!

Hello June!!

After spending the morning at Hollywood, we went back and spent the afternoon at our pool. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures, but Jacob will still tell you all about the dragon water slide with King Triton sitting on top! It really was a very fun pool! We took a long nap and then went to Chef Mickey's for dinner (another sweet blessing from the Lord- He opened up those reservations for us. I had been calling for months to try and get in and still didn't have reservations for Chef Mickey's when we got to Disney. I went by our concierge for one last attempt and they had the exact night at 7pm that we were hoping for!!)

My friend Erica made them their matching tees!!

Minnie Mouse!! Please check out the dessert plate. They brought her her very own plate to accommodate her peanut allergy! It was an overflowing plate of oreos, gummy bears, and a special allergy brownie!!
Chef Mickey's was one of our favorite character experiences! They had a blast!! After dinner we rode the monorail all the way around the loop and then went to the Magic Kingdom for the nighttime parade and fireworks! We also rode a couple of rides that have a special ambiance at night (the carousel, big thunder mtn railroad, astro orbiter!!)
