Hollywood Studios - Day 2

We decided to spend day two at Hollywood Studios.  We knew there was quite a bit for the kids to see and do here so we headed out bright and early!

I haven't been to Disney for quite a few years and had never been to the Toy Story Mania ride.  Everyone said it was a must so we went straight there.  There was a wait already, but we knew it wouldn't get any shorter so we got in line and waited.  Such a fun ride!  Even the waiting was fun!  This Mr. Potato head that talked to us while we waited was pretty cool!
And the ride did not disappoint!  It was awesome!  The little ones had fun shooting the guns and the big ones had fun trying to see who was going to score the most points!  I would have totally done it again if the line wasn't 2+ hours!  I can't wait to go back sometime and ride it again!

We then headed over to see the Disney Jr. Live puppet show, which the kids loved!  Next to that were the one and onlys Sophia the First and Jake!  Each kid stood in line and got their picture taken with them.  Hannah was in love! 
And Cam was ready to be a pirate!
Since he was in pirate mode, he decided he NEEDED a Jake sword!  I was a little worried, but he did pretty good with it.  Look at that pirate look!
We had fun finding other attractions at Hollywood Studios including the Muppet 3D show.  This was the kids' first taste of 3D and they seemed to enjoy it.  Here is the Miss Piggy fountain outside the venue.

Next, it was time for lunch at Hollywood and Vine to eat with the Disney Jr. Characters.  When we were there, it was Jake, Oso, June from Little Einsteins, and Handy Manny.  Even though some of these characters were a little older, the kids have watched all these shows and had a great time!  I did find out that a few weeks after we were there, Doc McStuffins and Sophia were going to be joining the cast.  Oh well!  You can't see them all!

After lunch, we headed to see the stage production of Beauty and the Beast and got there at just the right time.  It started pouring for just a bit as we were under the amphitheater watching the show.  Next we headed over to the Honey! I Shrunk the Kids play yard so the kids could burn off some energy.
As we were walking around, we also ran into some Green Army men.  The kids were both passed out in their strollers at the time so the adults got in on the character action!

 One of the only things Tim wanted to make sure we did was see the Indiana Jones stage show.  We headed there next and had a great time seeing the stunts!
It was starting to get dark and we had one more thing to see.  One of the holiday only events at Disney is the Osborne Family Dancing Lights at Hollywood Studios.  We headed that way and it did not disappoint!  We've seen some awesome lights and this one takes the cake!  What a fun new thing that we all got to experience.
We had a great day at Hollywood Studios!  We got home and went straight to bed so we could be ready for the final Disney day!
