Just a few hours after we left Hollywood Studios, we are back and ready to rope drop. The goal for the day is to get a couple quick spins on Toy Story Midway Mania and meet a few characters before we hop over to Epcot to help celebrate its 30th birthday.
After a spin on Toy Story Midway Mania we went across the street to meet Woody and Buzz Lightyear. They have a very nice meet and great area with an indoor line. When you first enter there is a sign that explains how the line works. There are lots of photo opportunities along the way.
Fist up is the box Buzz Lightyear came in.
Then the "Claw"
Trapped in Sid's room.
Clair is a little worried about being strapped to a rocket.
Some concern on Alden's face.
Clair said she did not need a picture with the Evil Zurg.
Don't worry stinky Pete does not actually stink despite what my kids say.
No wonder luggage gets lost when these three are messing with it.
So after working your way through the first two movies, you meet Buzz and Woody on Andy's "Bed" It is a good back drop!
It was time to use our Fast Pass, so back across the sidewalk we went for another ride.
The look of focus and determination.
My monsters with these monsters from Monster's Inc.
We ate lunch at the Backlot Express then caught the next show of American Idol. It is usually very entertaining. It is fun to cheer and boo at the judges and the contestants.
With it being about 1:30pm, we were ready to hop and Clair was ready to nap. Today is Epcot's 30th Birthday so we want to go check out the birthday party. From Hollywood Studios, there is a boat that can take you to the Epcot resorts and then to Epcot. One great thing about this boat is that you can roll your stroller right on, no need to wake a sleeping child. It is about a 25 minute boat ride. We could have walked the distance faster but we needed a little break for our feet and a chance to recharge " our batteries".
I think she looks comfortable.
When entering Epcot we all received a special 30th birthday buttons. There was also a special map and times guide that had the special events listed. We were not really interested in any of the special events because they we geared more for adults, we were there for the button.
We walked over to The American Adventure to watch the show but after sitting in line for a while they said they had to cancel it due to technical difficulties. They had lots of extra stuff going on and my guess is they were understaffed for the massive crowds outside at the theater where all the special presentations were that day.
So we walked over to meet Duffy and survived a down pour at the same time.
Then we used a little imagination.
Never a dull moment when jumping on light up sensors that play music.
I think Alden and I take this picture every trip.
We walked back to the boat to head back to our car over at Hollywood Studios.
We called it an early night and had the kids do some homework!
