After we'd had enough animals and couldn't find a suitable place for food, we decided to go outside of Disney for dinner. We found a Joe's Crab Shack and then returned to Hollywood Studios for the rest of the evening.
|Teh Sister got an appetizer sampler as her meal.|
It had legs.
|Sorcerer Mickey and his brooms!|
(I'm a sucker for some Fantasia.. and Fantasia 2 will just not do)
|Hanging out "on scene"|
|All the 3D things required these snazzy glasses.. which we always documented.|
|The fastest character wait line of all!|
(there was NO line)
|We stumbled upon TONS of characters in an alley.. right as they were leaving.|
|Aladdin and Genie|
|Queen of Hearts|
|I really, really, reallllllyyyy wanted to buy these, but didn't.|
|AT-AT at the Star Wars "ride"|
|More 3D glasses|
|Mickey Mouse ice cream sammich! |
It was a necessity.
|I definitely thought that sign said "Entertain your throat."|
|Breaking the rules of not being completely behind the yellow line.|
|Tarzan was a hit for Teh Sister|
|We weren't able to get a photo with Sorcerer Mickey since we were trying to get to Fantasmic..|
So this was my first time going to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, so I had never heard about Fantastmic until Teh Greyhound Neighbor-Wife told me about it after their trip in January. She explained that a fastpass was absolutely necessary to see this, and I'm so glad I insisted on it. It's a light/character show with some epic musics. Disney's use of projectors on water had me stunned. I wasn't even a little bit upset when we started getting misted on. So much characters, so much musics, so much lights and fire and water and things. I was more than impressed.
Additionally, each section was labeled as a character, so this conversation happened:
Teh Megan: I'm not sure what section we're sitting in. I see Jafar over there, but what is our section?
Teh Sister: Maleficent. Which do you want to be?
tM: Either *maniacal cackles*
After the show, we stopped at some of the shops on the boulevard to let some of the traffic disperse (and I really wanted to visit the villain shop).
|Sweet dreams, Mickey!|
|Pretty sure I need these shirts in my life before I die.|
Don't judge me. I'm cheesy and I know it.
