|Ready for fun at Hollywood Studios!|
Though we arrived at the park entrance about 10 minutes before opening, I was surprised to see that they were already admitting visitors to the park. Just to be safe, we trekked immediately back to Toy Story Mania to pick up FastPasses. (And, boy, was I glad. Our time window wasn't until noon, and when we did go back to ride, they'd already given out all the FastPasses for the day. If we hadn't gotten them first thing, we would have missed it!)

After that, we explored the park a little. We had our pictures made with Mater and Lightning McQueen, and then we noticed the sky getting really overcast. To dodge the rain, we settled in for a theatre showing of Muppet-Vision 3-D. (This film was fun, but again, not as good as Mickey's Philharmagic. That thing is hard to beat!)
|The Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie|
Set Adventure was seriously awsome.
At around this time, we were getting hungry for lunch. There was also spotty rain, so we figured it would be a good time to head inside. We'd heard that Pizza Planet served some of the best pizza in all of the Disney parks, so we headed over. While the pizza was good, the place was packed and, with all of the video games around, it was also really LOUD. We ate our pizza and got out of there!
After lunch, we headed over to Toy Story Mania to cash in our FastPasses. I loved this ride even more than the Buzz Lightyear attraction in Tomorrowland. I was really glad we'd planned ahead, or we would have missed it!

By this time, we were losing steam. We headed over to the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show, but the line was long. Unsure we'd be able to get in, we split up. Hubs and Clay went back to the gift shop at the end of Star Tours, and I took a quick look inside The Magic of Disney Animation exhibit. I didn't stay for the film, but I loved all the models of the parks, the peeks inside the animatronic characters, and the information about Walt Disney's life. I'd recommend this attraction to anyone.
