Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of my favorite Disney parks. It has a lot of movie nostalgia, combined with fun entertainment and some newer movie stuff that probably isn’t properly considered to be nostalgic. Today we had several Fast Passes and we had a package dinner reservation at the Hollywood Brown Derby combined with priority seating at Fantasmic. Fantastic is something everyone should see at least once, it’s a magical combination of Disney storytelling and theater craft that’s just pretty cool. The thing is, getting a good seat involves lots of waiting in the hot sun, but with either a Fast Pass or a Dining package that includes Fantasmic tickets, you can get good priority seating. We were in the second row. I didn’t get any pictures at the show because I thought it would be a waste of time as so many of the effects involve back-lighting and water, so to avoid getting a bunch of sub-par pictures and a wet camera, I passed on that photo op – but it is very cool!
But we had fun anyway, as you can see. Callie was in good sprits despite her soggy shoes. Notice that she had a poncho too. Bringing ponchos to WDW would save about $10 each, but it has to be pretty wet before I’ll wear one because it’s like a sweat lodge and I don’t love it. But today, I bought one and wore it anyway. Did I mention it was wet? Weeeeeeet.
