What can I say about Disney's Hollywood Studios, there is just so much to see and do in this place! There are shows, rides, characters, and tours.... One day just isn't enough time to spend here, but we sure did try to get as much done as we could! Star Tours, which was closed for refurbishment when we came down two years ago, was opened and my boys LOVE Star Wars, so we had to ride this! We took all of our boys, including my 4 year old on it.  He was a little frightened at first at the 3D and the movement, but then ended up enjoying it! Indiana Jones was a favorite last time, so we just had to see it again!  It was a little different from last time, but still a great show.  My 4 year old thought it was absolutely amazing, all of the explosions and fake fights, acrobatics & stunts... All cool to see (as an adult) but for a 4 year old, it was unbelievable!

My absolute favorite ride 2 years ago, and hands down my favorite ride again this year was Rockin' Roller Coaster...  The best part about it this year was that I got to go on it with my 8 year old, my mom and dad, and my brother.  No one had rode the ride before except me.  So when you step into the room where you get on the coaster, and you see the people go from zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds... Wow.  You ride in almost complete darkness, going  upside down several times... All the while, the music is rockin' in your ears...  Then, too soon, the ride is over.  I was happy to get to share the ride with some of my favorite people... When we got to the park, about an hour after it opened, we went to try to get Fast Passes for Toy Story Mania.  They were already were out of Fast Passes! Apparently, everyone else knows, if you want to ride Toy Story Mania arrive when the park opens and get a Fast Pass.  Or do what we did, we waited until evening and it started to rain.  Everyone started to leave the park, so we hopped on the ride and waited only 20 minutes!  That as opposed to the 2 hour wait we saw earlier in the day!

There are many other great rides and shows: Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Studio Backlot Tour, Muppet*Vision 3D, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.  The Streetmosphere Characters are also so funny, and when you see a crowd gathering on the street, you need to go and see what the fuss is about.  The guys (and gals) are so funny, and it is worth it to stand and watch. PS- My favorite place to eat here? Pizza Planet. Delicious. Small Pizza & Salad, good prices. Can't wait 'til I get to go back!!!
