Disney - part 6 (Hollywood Studios)
On our 6th day in Disney we slept in a little bit. We had to, our bodies wouldn't let us get up. When we finally worked the kinks out and got up we headed to breakfast in the resort (which by now was getting a little nasty because it all tasted the same and we had eaten it for 6 days in a row).
We decided that we would head to Hollywood Studios for the day today. I know I sound like a broken record but the heat was killer today. It was almost too much to handle, especially because we were so tired at this point and our energy was low. We decided it was a good idea to just knock out all of the rides that we had a Give a Day Fastpass for and leave. Some of the things we did were Muppets Vision 3D, Star Tours (twice), Toy Story Mania (twice), and the Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
After lunch we split up. Grannie took the girls back to the resort (and Steph had to tell her the way back) while Ron and I went on 2 more rides that the girls couldn't go on: Rock N Roller Coaster (which was terrible and I will never go on again - it gave me the worst headache of my life) and the Tower of Terror (which is seriously one of the best rides at Disney). On our way out of the park it started to rain and it felt so good to get a little wet and cool off! We then headed back to the resort and met up with the kids for some rest. After a quick nap we all went to Downtown Disney. We had dinner at the Earl of Sandwich (YUM!) then did a little shopping.
We then split up again - Grannie took the girls to Lego Land then back to the room while Ron and I went to the House of Blues for a few drinks and to listen to a live musician for a little while. At about 8:30PM Ron and I headed to La Nouba (Cirque Du Soleil) which we had tickets for. The show was about an hour and 40 minutes long and was awesome from start to finish! We didn't want it to end!! There was a juggler, trapeze, tightrope walkers, and all kinds of amazing talent. When it was over we went back to the room to kiss the girls goodnite and for some much needed sleep.
Of course, a few pictures:
Part 7 is up next.....
