Well it has taken me quite a while to get back into the swing of post-vacation life, but I think I'm finally getting there and now have time to finish blogging our trip. Here is what we did on Friday!
We got up at went straight to Hollywood Studies at got back to the Toy Story Mania ride at 9:30 (only a half our after the park opened!). There was already a 60 minute wait to get on the ride and the fast past wasn't until 1:20. We got them anyway, just in case we made it in the park that long before the kids started melting down. While Jim got the fast passes, I got right in line with the kids to see Buzz & Woody. The were both very excited to see in while we stood in line and were really very good since we had a pretty good wait. Summie was now becoming quite the ham and went right up to Woody for a picture, but Cole was still a bit unsure of the characters so Jim had to hold him for the pictures. After we got our pictures, we went to search for the real live Lotso since the stuffed one can't be found (I can now happily tell you that I was able to find one at the Disney Store when we got home to NJ). While we waited for Lotso arrive to his picture location, we got pictures with Sorcerer Mickey which were probably the worst pictures we had the whole time we were there. Since we were in the animation studio we played with the digital coloring games and then went to wait in line for Lotso. We luckily were very close to the front of the line! Summie loved Lotso and gave him big hugs and gave him her book to be signed, but Cole was again not too sure. We got a family picture with him and it wound up being our favorite picture of the whole trip! Next we saw Handy Manny. Cole decided that he didn't want a picture, but Summie happily posed for a few. Next we went to play on the Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set playground. Cole loved going down the BIG slides, but Summie would climb to the top and then decide that she didn't want to go down. We finally found a little slide that she happily slide down! It's so very funny how different they are.
