Disney recap -- Monday, Day 3:

On Monday we got up, again had breakfast at the hotel and then went to Hollywood Studios for the day. The sun was shinning and it was warm out which was a nice change from the day before.

The first thing we did was go and ride "Toy Story Midway Mania!", which is advertised as a 4-D midway-style game-playing adventure. The queue for the ride has a lot of toys and things to see which helped to make the wait more bearable. The ride itself was very fun and everyone enjoyed it.

Later in the day we rode "Tower of Terror". We didn't tell the girls much about it before we went on and M was terrified. She said she's never, ever, ever going on that ride again. G and I liked it and J while scared, would have gone on it again if we would've wanted her to.

We saw the "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" show in front of the wizards hat and M was in heaven. She loves all the singing and dancing. It's right up her alley.
Through-out the day between rides and shows we saw a few characters and gathered more autographs for the girls collections including Buzz Lightyear, Handy Many, Quincy and June from Little Einstiens and Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater from Cars.

We also made sure we were camped out on Hollywood Boulevard for the parade. Disney knows how to put on a parade. The music and dancing and theatrics of it were very up-beat and fun. The girls even got to go and dance with the dancers and they got a couple squeeze balls that they got to bring home as souvenirs.

After the parade we went back to the hotel for a break and swim before going back to Hollywood Studios for dinner at The Brown Derby. The kids were soo excited to be able to go swimming. I was fighting a sore throat and cough, so G took them in and they were thrilled.

Favorites from today:
M -- the parade
J -- Seeing the "Voyage of the Little Mermaid" show with Ariel
G & B -- the "Toy Story Midway Mania!" ride
