Disney World Diary 2014: Day #3

On the third day of Disney-mas, Disney gave to me, Hollywood Studios! We set off early (as usual) and got to park a little after opening. We immediately headed to Rockin' Rollercoaster, but the queue was already over an hour, so we decided to come back later and check it out then. Instead we used our fast passes for Toy Story Mania, which honestly is one of the most fantastic rides at Disney. Rose really loved it, it was also nice for me to go on it as last year I was unable too due to the queues being so long and fast passes running out. It was so good to finally go on it!



After checking out a couple of the other rides around Pixar Place, we found some characters hanging around the entrance! I LOVE meeting characters and so does Rose so its gotta be done. We actually ended up meeting 5 characters throughout the day, my favourite being Stitch, he was adorable!






While meeting Stitch, his photographer and cast members played around with my phone and took selfies which made me laugh an awful lot when I discovered them. Such a funny little memory and an example of the Disney magic that can really make your day.







We went back to Rockin' Rollercoaster and saw the queue was still 40 mins. We decided to give it a go, as it is our absolute favourite Disney ride, but the queue was slap bang in the middle of the sun and we found ourselves burning up. We made the decision to come back later and actually when exiting the queue, a cast member approached us and asked why we were leaving, then ended up giving us fast passes so we could hop on straight away - such a lovely gesture and really made our day! Rockin' Rollercoaster was awesome as always and still remains my personal favourite Disney ride. After that we found ourselves a bit peckish, so indulged in one of my favourite snacks at Disney World - the famous pretzel and plastic cheese!





After this we mooched around the shops, Rose pin traded and we went on rides such as Star Tours and Muppet-vision. The heavens opened, but only briefly, giving us a lovely break from the blazing sunshine and then we headed to the Sci-Fi diner for dinner. While lovely, I think this does remain one of my least favourite restaurants. I think its the low lighting that does it, I just like being able to see my food. We both had our first steak of the holiday, and while mine was lovely, it was very fatty and i'm not a fat lover. I opted for the famous Sundae for dessert, which was lovely. I love the IDEA of the Sci-Fi diner, but probably wouldn't go again and would rather try elsewhere within Hollywood Studios. 







After dinner, it was Fantasmic time, Hollywood Studios huge nighttime spectacular. I love this little show and always find a tear in my eye. We settled down an hour before showtime to get a good seat and to enjoy a cocktail. I heard a touching story about all the cast members hugging Genie on the day of Robin Williams' passing and I thought it was both sweet and incredibly tragic, I did feel myself get a little lump in my throat and always find myself sad whenever I see anything Genie related. Fantasmic was awesome as always and Rose said she really enjoyed it and found herself emotional at parts. 

After Fantasmic we wanted to stick around the for the Frozen fireworks at 9.15, but it was so crowded being Labour Day weekend, so we headed home and enjoyed a very uncrowded bus journey on the way home. Arriving home shattered (hey Disney is tiring OK?!) we watched some TV and hit the hay, ready for another early start tomorrow! 


Also thought I would end with my OOTD - Top from H&M, Shorts from Primark (and aren't they fabulous?! Perfect for watching Journey of the Little Mermaid) and sandals also from Primark :)
