Disney 2015 ~ Hollywood Studios

(Tues, Sep 15, 2015)

Hannah and I were up bright and early on Tuesday morning and made our way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios (DHS) to sign Hannah up for Jedi Training that she would participate in later in the day.  Once we had secured a spot for her we parked her stroller and headed back out of the park.  We boarded a boat IMG_8593and on this bright, sunny day made our way to the Beach Club Resort to go to the character breakfast at Cape May Cafe.   So bright and pretty!IMG_1406

The food was delicious at this breakfast buffet (can you say banana, strawberry and chocolate crepes?)IMG_1404 and the characters were fun in their beach attire.



The Beach Club Resort is located near Epcot in a beautiful location.IMG_8601

We made our way back to DHS and stopped for pictures on Hollywood Boulevard with it’s new look of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre at the end of it.  IMG_8606

It was now for Hannah’s Jedi Training so we made our way to her Padawan Training.IMG_8610

She did well learning her moves as a Padawan


but then this happened and my girl was outta there faster than you can say ‘No way baby!!!’

I was so proud of my girl for trying this and totally supported her quickly exiting the stage, ‘Because I don’t know him too well!’ 

Hannah was excited to try ‘Star Tours’ again this year (we tried it a couple of years ago but she didn’t like it) but this year it was a hit!  Afterwards she built her own droid.IMG_8633

One of Hannah’s favourite activities on a Saturday morning is to watch Disney Parks videos on YouTube.  I like them because they’re fun and 100% safe so I can be comfortable with any that she chooses to watch.  One she enjoyed watching was about the ‘PB and J Milk Shakes’ available at the 50’s Primetime Cafe.  It was surprisingly yummy!IMG_8635

On our way to watch Fantasmic we stopped to ride Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.  It’s a really fast roller coaster with loops and barrel rolls all in the dark but Hannah wanted to give it a try.IMG_8636

She was excited to just barely meet the 48” height requirement.IMG_8637

She did well and there weren’t any tears afterwards but she also declared she doesn’t want to ride it again until she’s a teenager!  This was her post RRC face!IMG_1424

Our final event of a great day was watching Fantasmic which we both really enjoy.  As the final scene emerged my heart swelled even more for my sweet, amazing, wonderful girl!!!  She was beyond excited to see all the characters as you’ll hear in her voice but it was her words that melted me!  Her heart was with her cousin and best friend Makenna who hadn’t been able to stay for the show.  She exclaims, ‘Oh I can’t tell Makenna this!  I can barely tell Makenna this!  Makenna will be so upset!’ 

I love hearing Hannah’s excitement as she found Mulan and other favourite characters.

Another wonderful day with my girl and as was common, she crashed as soon as she hit the stroller.  Sweet Disney dreams baby girl!IMG_8652


  1. I don't blame here for bolting when that scary guy came out! Ha! The first time Marin saw a picture of him he said, "Um, is that Emperor Zurg?" LOL The fireworks show looks amazing! Believe it or not, we've never watched it! Is the wait really as bad as people say? Do you have to get there 2 hours prior to get a seat?! How sweet is Hannah thinking of her cousin! The new entrance is pretty cool! Matthew & I visited the real theater several years ago & saw a movie there! A neat piece of Hollywood history but I miss the hat! What a brave girl to try the big coaster! Which was scarier? That or Everest?! Ha!

    1. It was quite funny MaLeah. I was watching Darth when out of the corner of my eye I saw pigtails with bright hair bows bouncing and then a brown Pedawan outfit was tossed up onto the side of the stage. A cast member brought my girl to me. I hugged her and praised her for knowing she could do exactly what she did! Oh, you MUST go see Fantasmic!!! I would recommend arriving 45 mins - 1 hour before show time. We arrived about 15 mins ahead and it was standing room only. Another option is to book a Fantasmic Dining Package (we did this) and you'll get priority seating. We enjoyed supper at Mama Melrose's. Fantasmic is amazing and so different form both Wishes and Illuminations! I don't think she was thrilled with either coaster. I'll have to ask her which was scarier. I'm guessing Rock 'n' Roller Coaster but she might surprise me. How many sleeps for you now? :)

  2. Amazing pictures Catherine!!! Sounds like a fabulous day at HS! The breakfast looks DELICIOUS and yes, I can say banana, strawberries & chocolate crepes! YUMMO!!!!!! Love Goofy's outfit too, so cute!!!! Hannah was an adorable Jedi. She is so photogenic!!!! Thank you for sharing picture of your awesome adventure! TPR
