Hollywood Studios

We spent our last day visiting Hollywood Studios, which is my favorite park. We hung with Cory and Martha's family in the morning and were able to accomplish so much in just 2 hours. We were waiting at the gates when they opened and raced straight to Toy Story Mania. We grabbed fast passes and then walked right on. It was such a great ride! We then headed over to Rockin' Roller Coaster, but Cory was too short and I was too pregnant to join him. Next, Kevin hit up The Tower of Terror while Cory D and I joined Martha and Cory's family for the Little Mermaid show (which was excellent!). After that we all went and used our fast passes to walk right back on Toy Story Mania. We hit all the "long line" rides in the park and didn't have to wait for any of them. We definitely did it right! 
We all met back up to enjoy more rides, shows and lunch. By the 3pm Pixar Parade Cory was wiped out. After 3 days in the parks, he FINALLY fell asleep in his stroller. I was so relieved, but also a little sad that he slept through the entire parade. However, he woke up a happy boy and we were able to watch the Disney Junior show and he loved seeing the Jake and the Neverland Pirates gang. 
We made it back to the house in time to eat dinner and watch the Super Bowl (and for me to pack). The bad news was that the upstairs air conditioner was broken when we got home and it was like 80 degrees. Yuck. It eventually cooled down in the night and wasn't that big of a deal, thank goodness. We had a wonderful trip and made a ton of memories with each other and with my family. I'm ready to do it again... say in 3 years?
