Walt Disney World 2011: Day 1

We just got home from a week long trip to Disney World. I thought I would do a different blog post for each day. Of course, the real day one was the drive down there, but since that was completely boring, I'll start with the first day at the parks. Therefore, day one was Disney's Hollywood Studios (referred to DHS from here on out)!

Tuesday - A lot of people think of DHS as the "throw away park". Not enough rides, nothing for little ones. Naturally, Shareen and my brother Matthew rode the bigger rides, but I'll be focusing on what we did with the little kids. For us, it was great! We saw the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show, MuppetVision 3D, the Beauty and the Beast show, Disney Jr show, rode Toy Story Mania, the Great Movie Ride, and I cannot forget the nighttime spectacular, Fantasmic (Marlee's fave). Also, we were able to see the The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, which were beautiful.

We also got to meet several characters at DHS, got pics and autographs. Donald, Daisy, Pooh, Jake, Mr. Incredible, Mater, and Lightning McQueen were all to be found, and with super short lines at that!

It turned out to be a great day and I'm glad we did not skip this park. If your kids don't like shows, it may not be for you, but Marlee and Phoebee both sat through every show and ride and were mesmerized!
