Hollywood..... here we come

No, not Hollywood CA, but Disney's, Hollywood Studios. Our main reason for going to Orlando over the weekend was to see American Idol’s Live Concert. The Concert was on Sunday and we arrived in Orlando on Saturday. We had a full day in Hollywood Studios. We got to the park at 10:a.m. and stayed until 11:00p.m. We saw our favorite shows that we have seen before and we got to go on a couple of new rides.
Character just roaming the streets.

The Hollywood Tower of Terror! The Chief and the Cisco Kid wanted to go on this ride. I have avoided this ride for many years. I love rides, but there is one kid of ride I do not like. Two words sum it up. FREE FALLING!! I hate free falling rides and the Tower of Terror is a Twilight Zone experience. First you go to the 13th floor of a Hotel, and then the ghosts electrify the hotel. At that point the doors to the elevator open and you find yourself moving out a large opening 13 floor up. Just before the elevator extends out the large opening the elevator drops out from under you. You are in a free fall for several seconds. Even though you are strapped to the seat, somehow the seat comes out from under you. Just when you think it is all over you climb back up and it drops again. Wait! it's not over yet. It does this about four or five times. I lost count because I was worried about The Cisco Kid and if he was freaked out. Don't worry about him. He loved it.  
We are sitting in the middle row far left.  I am looking at The Cisco Kid making sure he is ok.   I won't be going on that ride any time soon. 
We always enjoy seeing the Indiana Jones stunt show. 
We went to Hollywood and Vine for lunch.  The food was ok but it was fun seeing the characters.  Special agent Oso.
Little Einstein. 
Handy Manny! Now these characters are not allowed to speak, so everything they do is with had gestures only. The Cisco Kid wanted to take a picture of Handy Manny with his I pod and he was having trouble getting it to flip to the camera setting. So Handy Manny jumped in and gestured to The Cisco Kid how to switch it over. Good thing it was Handy Manny. He really does know how to fix everything. 
This was an all you can eat buffett and the picture is some of the childrens meals.   
Tomorrow I will post the rest of the evening at Hollywood Studios.  



  1. This was really fun to see...I LOVE the picture of you guys on Tower of Terror!! That is TOO FUNNY! TCK looks like he is handling it though. We have been to the Hollywood and Vine for breakfast and we enjoyed it...saw all of the Little Einsteins then...looks like they have some new friends! Great that they have some broccoli sitting right in the middle of the other items! Perfect! Great post! Enjoyed the pictures!

  2. I was happy to see a new post from you. It's been a while. I love TCK's summer haircut. He looks good. I haven't ever been to Hollywood Studios -- well I did when it was MGM years and years ago -- but things have certainly changed. It looks great. No Tower of Terror for me though. You were so brave.
