Tuesday we spent the day at Hollywood Studios. This is one of our favorite parks because it seems slower paced to us. There’s no mad dash for rides other than Toy Story Mania and Star Tours. It always seems less hectic to us at Hollywood Studios.  We went to the park late knowing full well we would miss out on Toy Story fast pass but at that point, rest was more important with my husband starting to feel better. We didn’t have any dining reservations either so we were not tied down to anything. We went at our own pace. We did get fast passes for Star Tours and my husband and daughter loved that ride. I don’t do rides so while they were riding I had scored a prime seat for the Pixar parade which I loved!  We stayed for Fantasmic which we had never seen before and it was completely worth the wait. Such a neat show!


Wednesday, my husband and daughter spent the day with my family in EPCOT while I was in our room resting because unfortunately I had come down with the stomach bug.  It was definitely not fun being sick on vacation and I was sad to miss a day, especially at EPCOT which is my favorite park. They had a great day exploring the park though and I rested up and was better for the next day.

Thursday we headed back to Magic Kingdom.  We enjoyed a ride on the train, more time at Mickey’s Philharmagic, It’s a Small World, and I finally experienced Dole Whip which is something I’ve wanted each trip but never seem to get! It was delicious!!  We happened to be in the right spot for one of the street shows and had a great view of all the characters and had fun dancing in the streets with everyone. We explored the new Fantasyland and my husband and daughter rode Dumbo! The line for Goofy’s Barnstormer was too long to wait but we were so glad to see that ride was up and running. We went back to the resort around 5pm and enjoyed more time in the resort pool together. My daughter loved going down the fun slide!
