Disney: Days Three and Four
On Day 3 of our November Disney trip, we headed to Hollywood Studios. Although the crowds were very low, you can always count on lines at Toy Story Mania. This attraction is the most popular attraction at Disney World, so we always head there as soon as the park opens (with several thousand of our closest friends). Our strategy is to grab Fastpasses for later and then get in line to ride. Toy Story Mania is a 3D arcade-type experience, and it is fun for everyone. I captured a shot of my Favorite Boy ready to play.

After TSM, we headed to the Tower of Terror. Both my Favorite Boy and Best Girl love this ride (although my Best Girl could do without some of the scary introductory scenes). You can see the Tower behind us in this picture. Did you know it is 199 feet tall? If Disney had made it one foot taller, a pole to warn airplanes would have been required.

We returned to Toy Story Mania, and also watched the Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Then we met Lotso from Toy Story 3. My Best Girl was scared of Lotso in the movie, but she thought he was very cuddly in real life. She decided that he is only mean to toys.

After meeting Lotso, we headed to the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids playground. Since we were days away from bringing Oreo home, my Best Girl was excited to pose by this giant dog nose.

We decided to break for lunch at Toy Story Pizza Planet, and then we watched the Muppet's 3-D movie. After one more adventure in the Tower of Terror, we decided to take an afternoon break. On the way out, we ran into this little alien (my kids love these "magic" shots):

We returned to Hollywood Studios in the evening for the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights and Fantasmic. The Osborne Lights are amazing. The display includes millions of lights synchronized with Christmas music, and Disney even manages to have snow falling.

We left the lights and headed to Fantasmic. My Best Girl had never seen this show because there are parts that are scary. The show is about Mickey's bad dream, and almost every Disney villain is included. It was getting late, and we were wearing down, so we almost changed our minds about staying. A little popcorn revived us, and we all enjoyed the show. We can't wait to take Dad next time (he has never seen it).

On Day Four, we spent the day at Blizzard Beach. The kids enjoyed playing in the water all day, and it was a great break from the parks. After a fun day of water slides and pools, we headed to Chef Mickey's for dinner. As we waited for our turn to be seated, my Best Girl had to rest from a tiring day. She held the buzzer next to her ear so she wouldn't miss anything.

Chef Mickey's is our favorite character meal. You can't beat Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald and Goofy, and we enjoy the buffet. I particularly like the desserts, and I threw my healthy eating out the window for these little guys:

My Favorite Boy had quite a few of these as well. You can see the proof in his teeth in his picture with Donald.

Days three and four were fabulous. Stay tuned for five and six: our fun-filled days in the Magic Kingdom!
