NO EXTRA HOURS
Monday 1st April - Hollywood Studios
Up at 9am ( missed out on Early extra hours as we were all just so exhausted ) but arrived there about 10:30 and as usual the crowds were just ridiculous.
The first stop was to watch Star Wars Padawan Training, Jacks wants to do this so badly but the booking are all taken before the pack opens so god only knows how people manage
it, but we certainly will be trying again for Jack. We got some fast pass tickets to the Star Wars Tours show which is basically a virtual ride, we couldn't go back to this
ride for another hour or so, so it's off to see something else whilst we wait.
We went to see the Action Stunt Show called Light's Camera Action, this was absolutely thrilling and involves a movie set in a small French town where there is a bit of a gun
fight with cars and motor bikes doing crazy stunts with explosions etc, it was worth it, we managed to get given fast passes from a lady at the front, otherwise the line up
was over an hour
they likley didn't even get a seat. The show was excellent and very exciting, we all loved it.
After this myself and Jack went to the Star Wars Tour, whilst Wendy and Lilia went shopping, the ride is a virtual ride where we all sit in a bid room with seat belts to hold
you in and then the big screen in front is 3D and propels you through space avoiding meteors and other space ships from the star wars movies, all of which Jack knew very well
so ofcourse he loved it very much, the ride was fast and would have made Wendy and Lilia feel sick from the motion and sudden turns and drops but Jack and I love it.
After this we went to see the exhibition called Honey I Shrunk My Kids, it an interactive play aear for kids ( and some adults too ) where the kids wander through an area with
giant sized ants and bees and dogs noses, tunnels, spider webs to crawl through, the kids loved it and had some good play time
We stopped by the writers guild shop and i bought this beautiful book on Disney world, fat to nice to open here so I must wait until I get home to see it, one of those big
heavey books so this will no doubt add a little to our excess baggage charges.
We then had some lunch and went onto to see the Disney Movie Back lot Tour, this is a tour of the actual Disney Movie Studios and Set building areas, costume designs and Props
area, very interesting and well worth it, despite have a technical breakdown and having to wait an extra 20 minutes in line.
We tried to see the Indiana Jones Stunt show but each time we tried it was standing room only, the kids were so tired it just wouldn't have been any fun for them or us so we
have put it off until another day when we will return for extra magic hours and get some of these rides and shows done early or at least get fast passes
The designs of the Hollywood Studios is excellent with areas painted to look like real City's such as San Fran and New York all painted onto flat boards but very realistic.
We then decided to head back home for some diner as we had plans to see a night show at Fort Wilderness. The bus ride home took about an hour which meant we were home an hour
or so before the show started. We all hired two canoes and went canoing down the disney rivers for about 45 minutes, it was very hard work as we were going against a small
tide for most of the time, i had never canoed before so it took me some time to get used to it, yes i crashed into the side of the river bank a couple of times which the kids
thought was very funny. Wendy and the kids had previously done canoing in Vanuatu so they had some experience.
When we finished we headed back to the RV for a quick shower and dinner before tonights show and movie.
Jack and I went and got some take away at the closest resort restaurant and by the time we got back ( yes there are crowds even at Fort Wilderness waiting to eat - you just
can't avoid the wait everywhere you go ) we had missed the start of the Campfire Marshmellow cooking, sing-a-long and seeing Chip and Dale, but fortunately we hadn't missed
much and arrived to see the area pretty packed out with resort guests
even managed to put here hand up when the singer asked the crowd where other people were from, she said Australia, at this time Jack, Lilia and myself had gone up the back to
get a photo with Chip-n-Dale and we heard the crowd acknowledge Australia, but at the time we didn't know it was because of Wendy.
The kids got to toast some marshmallow, had a sing along, but we passed on the nights movie and headed off to bed hoping to enable an early start.
