Day 4 of Vacation: Hollywood Studios

Exhausted from the late night and walking at Epcot the day before we decided to sleep in.  We got into the park around 10:00 and it was very busy.  We were all still worn out from the pace we had been keeping so Hollywood Studios was a good choice for P.  It was a lot of going to shows and sitting to watch, giving the legs a rest.  We hit the Indiana Jones stunt show first, then Tim headed off to the Aerosmith roller coaster while P and I enjoyed the Beauty and the Beast show.
Then P and I went to the Little Mermaid show while Tim went to the Star Wars ride (do you see a pattern forming?).
When we came out from the show it was raining cats and dogs and everyone was gathered inside the little gift shop for cover.  Thankfully it only lasted about 25 minutes.  After the downpour we headed to the 50's Cafe for some late lunch. 
It's a fun place, the waitresses yell at you if you put your elbows on the table.  I just with the food was better.  P ordered baked fish (Yes, my kid loves fish.).  Tim and I got a sampler to split with fried chicken, pot roast, and meatloaf.  The only thing worth eating was the pot roast, everything else was so over cooked.  We weren't surprised, none of the food at Disney was very good.
After lunch we did all the stuff that doesn't have a line, like Honey I Shrunk The Kids.
Tim headed off to the Tower of Terror while P and I did some shopping.  Then we need something a little sweet.
The Scary Apothecary had it all.
She settled on a big chocolate cupcake with white bunny icing.  The icing was so sweet that I couldn't eat it.
Then it was time to fast pass the Toy Story ride that we got tickets for 8 hours before.
Best ride in the park!  On our way out Tim wanted his picture taken with a plastic soldier, P got in it so he didn't feel like a complete dork.
He has fond memories of blowing these guys up with firecrackers as a kid.
Then it was time to grab a seat for Fantasmic.
I didn't get any good pictures of the show, but it was good.
More to come.
