Hollywood Studios (Day 3)

We ate breakfast at our hotel, and spent the next day at Hollywood Studios.

Lyla loved the Disney Jr. Show.  While we waited for the show to start, I had to snap a photo of her shirt for the day.


The first two days were pretty chilly (highs were in the mid-60's), but by today it started to warm up.


Daisy in lingerie.


Green Army Man.


Lightning McQueen and Mater.


Sofia. Apparently, Ada doesn't like Sofia (so she says...).


Jake.


I had heard a little bit about the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights (they have a pretty interesting backstory from when they were displayed in Arkansas), but didn't know too much about what to expect.  Hollywood Studios has decorated the Streets of America area of the park with more than 5 million lights.  Below is a picture of one of the buildings during the day, then a view at night.  We ate our Olaf cupcakes while we watched the spectacle of lights.




I took two photos at the exact same spot. One during the day and one during the light show.



Here is a video clip of the lights in action:

The next two pictures are from the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.  It's a fun roller coaster in the dark with a couple of inversions.  I love Alison and Ada's faces.



It took a lot of work, but I was finally able to convince Ada to go on the Tower of Terror ride with me (she's been a number of times, but finds it quite scary).  This is possible the one ride that is better here at Disney World than it is at Disneyland. Ada is unfortunately hidden by the guys arms in front of her, but you can see her a little better in the video.


Here is a video from the ride.

The last thing that we did at Hollywood Studio (besides waiting forever for a bus) was Fantasmic!

And finally, a short video of the fireworks over Elsa's Ice Castle from our view on the beach across the lake:
