On the third morning, we woke up to temps in the high thirties. It was windy and frigid. This was the day we had chosen to visit Hollywood Studios. The last time I had been to this park, I was 14 0r 15 and the park was called MGM. There were many new rides I was not familiar with and one that was my favorite from when I was a kid, Tower of Terror. Since the upcoming and then the release of the latest Star Wars movie, Disney has gone Star Wars galore! Hunter was beyond excited for all the Star Wars themed rides and shows. He even got to do a meet and greet with Chewbacca where he could hardly speak a word ( I believe he was star struck). It was Super Bowl Sunday and the park was a lot more crowded than I had originally anticipated. Towards the end of the day, I think Hunter was getting a bit nervous to get on Tower of Terror, but he did it and took it like a champ and thought it was a blast! The last ride of the day, also our last fast pass, was Aerosmith’s Rockin’ Roller Coaster. This ride was mine and Hunter’s first real roller coaster experience. We sat in the very front together, held hands and had one hell of a ride. It was a great day but I think both Glenn and I were pretty Disney’d out at this point and were about ready to go home, but we still had one more day.
The last day we had saved for Animal Kingdom. We had heard from many friends that that particular park you would get through pretty quickly and that was also the day we were going to be driving back home. The park was pretty cool, though we can say we’ve done it now and we don’t really need to go back. We have one of the largest zoo’s in the US just down the street from where we live so it sort of felt like that but with a few rides. One ride we were all looking forward to was Expedition Everest, their roller coaster and it didn’t let down. By lunchtime, we were ready to head home. We had a great weekend and I know Hunter had the time of his life.
