Disney ~ Hollywood Studios

After a very relaxing morning at the hotel, we spent day two at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Joe & I raced across the parks to get our fast passes for Toy Story Mania, they tend to disappear very quickly, and it's the girls' favorite ride. When we joined back up we took in the Ariel show, such a good performance, and even though we've seen it numerous times it's still so much fun.
We weren't sure if the girls had outgrown Playhouse Disney, but they both wanted to see it. The girls enjoyed seeing all of the characters, and shouting Surprise to Minnie for her Birthday Celebration.
Not sure what's going on here, but it looks like a good secret.

Just before we left home for this trip, I checked one more time on Sci-Fi Diner for lunch, and finally was able to get a reservation. Laura loves this place because she gets a "driver's license" from the waitress.

Dad & Leah in the back seat.

We had just enough time to let the girls play a short while at Honey I Shrunk the Kids' playground. Leah loved getting squirted by the giant water gun.

Laura found her perfect Belle dress at one of the shops earlier in the day, she had planned on buying one for months. She was looking forward to seeing the Beauty and the Beast show. You can here her on the very end of this video of the opening of the show.

The actor who portrays Gaston is fantastic!
Laura went through wide range of emotions watching the show, I had as much fun watching her.

To end the day we made our way to Toy Story Mania.

We had a great day and ended it in time to head back to the hotel for a quick swim in the pool.
The energy might have faded just a bit by the end.

Waiting for our return boat we saw this duck hitch a ride. The driver fed him something, and he stayed on there as far as we could see, maybe he just got tired of swimming.

Making a wish back at the hotel.

Ready to go swimming.
Playing with their masks they got from Mexico in Epcot.
After our swim and a great dinner at the Cabana Bar and Beach Club, Laura just had to try on her complete Belle outfit. She loved it, and acted just like a princess.

Laura made up this little song and sang it all day.

Next...Magic Kingdom
