2014 Florida Vacation Day 5: Hollywood Studios

I went to MGM about 12 years ago and the only thing I could remember about it was the Tower of Terror. I did some research before heading down this year, but was surprised as how much we enjoyed the park. I wish we could have stayed longer!


The stunt show was okay. Some of the stunts were pretty cool and it was neat to see how they did those stunts, but there was a lot of talking in between, as they were setting up. The bleacher-style seating was uncomfortable and it was hot that day. Oh well.

While the rest of the group rode Tower of Terror, Gabe and I hung out, watched birds, and ate jelly beans. He's such an observant guy. Always noticing details that most miss. He saw this heart in the pavement.


Another favorite of ours was the Animation Station where an artist taught us how to draw Doug, the dog from UP. It was sooo fun!! Everyone's sketches came out so well! Gabe gave up, but Luke persisted and I love the results.

We managed to get our one and only group picture taken by a Disney photographer.


Here we are, all wearing the Mickey shirts I made!

The Studio Backlot Tour was kind of cool.

After our naptime, we decided to head over to Downtown Disney. I'd read online that Earl of Sandwich had good gluten-free options. Well, I guess that info was out of date because all they had was salad. Which was fine with me, but not so much for the boys. They ended up eating chips and fruit cups for dinner. We ate and then decided to head back to the condo since Tim and Ben had an early morning looming ahead.
