Hollywood Studios • Kath Eats

Right here’s a recap of our Disney journey, put up 3 of 4! We spent our third day at Hollywood Studios. For those who missed them, listed below are our first two days at Magic Kingdom and Epcot

Selecting our third and remaining park

On reflection, we most likely ought to have scheduled 4 days of parks or executed a park hopper choice as a result of we didn’t get to Animal Kingdom.

I debated lengthy and exhausting whether or not to do Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom for our third and remaining day, and I selected Hollywood for the nearer location and extra rides I believed the youngsters would really like. Perhaps we’ll do Animal Kingdom subsequent time (and we will certainly be again for Common). 

I believe I made the precise selection although as a result of Hollywood Studios was Mazen’s favourite park by an extended shot! He LOVED the Star Wars land, and the Aerosmith Rock ‘n’ Curler Coaster was his high journey of the week. 

Disney Journey: Hollywood Studios

Boat Journey 

Our resort had an 8-minute boat journey to Hollywood (versus buses to Animal) so we additionally picked it for being shut. We may really hear the reveals from Hollywood every evening and see the Tower of Terror from our resort! Simply one more reason why we actually appreciated the Swan Reserve’s location. 


As soon as once more we bought Genie+ for $60. I used to be scared to not! We didn’t watch for any rides all day so I believe the $180 we spent over the course of the three days was price it.

Additionally price it: the improve to Lightning Lane for Rise of the Resistance. Your solely selection there’s pay for a lightning lane or wait in a 2-hour line. I acquired Mazen, Thomas and me all a reservation within the 12:00 hour.

Our solely Genie+ Mishap

I booked Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway for 9 a.m. after studying it was the headlining journey at Hollywood. After we hopped off the boat, we went by the gates. Identical to Epcot, the crowds weren’t too unhealthy.

We made a beeline to Toy Story Land hoping to journey the Slinky Canine Sprint, however the wait was already 40 minutes! And once I checked Genie+, the time slots have been already at 7 p.m. So we missed out on attending to journey Slinky. Mazen and Thomas have been each fairly unhappy.

Mickey + Minnie’s Genie+ by no means went greater than an hour or two forward of us, so on reflection I ought to have gotten Slinky first and simply executed Mickey and Minnie every time. Take observe when you’re heading there! (The Slinky standby line by no means acquired beneath an hour all day both.)

Toy Story Alien Saucers

So we headed to Alien Saucers very first thing which spins you round like a carnival journey. Birch liked it! Thomas opted out for concern of morning movement illness. 

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway (G+)

We then headed to our first G+ and needed to wait about 10 minutes in line. The journey is like Remy the place you’re in a magnetic automobile with particular results. I believed it was good, however not so good as Remy! Birch appreciated it! 

Toy Story Mania (G+)

We booked Toy Story Mania proper after Mickey with Genie. The road was 45 minutes for standby however we walked proper on! It’s a slower journey the place you sit in a automobile and shoot at targets to get a excessive rating. I didn’t like it, however the boys did. 

Assembly Pluto

On the best way to our subsequent cease, we bumped into Pluto and for the primary time all week Birch stated he needed to go say hello! So we waited in a 10-minute line they usually took a pic. Birch appeared much less afraid of the characters in costume than the true individuals dressed up (Aladdin, Jack Sparrow).

Rock ‘n’ Curler Coaster (G+)

We felt a bit extra scattered at Hollywood going throughout the park a number of occasions however I needed to get our huge rides out of the best way so we wouldn’t miss out on them like we did with Slinky.

Subsequent cease was Rockin’ Curler Coaster which has an Aerosmith theme. We ended up doing this one as a rider swap, which meant that Mazen acquired to go twice. He was a bit nervous to go at first, nevertheless it ended up being his favourite journey of the week! I believed the start was unbelievable – you go SO quick with G drive proper into going the wrong way up. It’s indoors and at nighttime which is my new favourite form of coaster. 

Star Wars Lunch at Docking Bay 7

By now it was about 11 a.m. and it was beginning to rain. So we walked over to Star Wars Land the place we knew we needed to attempt to have lunch. We acquired there simply in time for a downpour. 

Docking Bay was fairly cool. All of us agreed we felt like we have been actually in a Star Wars film.

TIP: Right here you may sit down and loosen up and order meals in your cell app and you then’ll get a notification when it’s prepared. A forged member informed us this, however there have been a lot of individuals nonetheless ready in a line. 

Mazen had some blue milk, the adults acquired hen salads and a beer, and Birch acquired mac and cheese, one of many 10 or so youngsters meals we paid for that he didn’t contact.

The rain let up for a couple of minutes so we went to take some pics and to go to the present store. However the window was brief as a result of it began raining more durable once more. That is when my sneakers acquired moist and didn’t get well for a number of hours. My toes have been frozen and I used to be fairly chilly till I warmed up my socks in a toilet dryer. 

Rise of the Resistance 

We took turns happening Rise with me going first alone. The journey was fairly cool! I appreciated all of the theatrics earlier than it began in numerous phases earlier than the journey half began. I additionally liked how the guards stayed in character and have been form of imply to us. The journey itself was one other magnetic one with the automobiles transferring in all instructions. There’s a giant drop close to the tip that was so enjoyable. 

And proper after our drop, the journey really broke down on me as we have been leaving, so it was closed for about an hour. The boys needed to delay their journey and I acquired a second journey at no cost, however I didn’t find yourself utilizing it simply in order that they wouldn’t have to attend on me alone once more. 

Smugglers Run (G+)

After Rise, we went to Smugglers. Thomas and Mazen went first after which Mazen and I went second. Let’s simply say I’m not a really expert pilot! I do love all of the digital actuality rides although. They appear to be getting extra interactive, too. 

Star Excursions (G+)

Mazen and I did Star Excursions whereas Thomas and Birch have been on their very own. I bear in mind this journey from once I was a child! It felt fairly outdated, however the 3D results have been nonetheless cool. I think about again within the 90s this was the highest of the road know-how! 

Frozen Sing-Alongside + Muppets 3D

Whereas Mazen and I have been in Smugglers and Star Excursions, Thomas lucked into ducking right into a Frozen sing-along proper when extra rain began. I’m devastated that I missed this present as a result of Thomas stated I’d have liked it!! However I didn’t need Birch to need to do it once more, so when Mazen and Thomas went to Rise, I took Birch to the Muppets 3D. Birch appreciated the Muppets, particularly the bubbles. 

Each reveals have been nice when the climate was lower than supreme. 

Afternoon Pool + Scorching Tub

After these reveals we have been all fairly chilly, so we went again to the resort to get within the sizzling tubs! The pool was heated and I acquired in it too, however solely after getting fairly heat within the sizzling tub first. 

Dinner at Flying Fish

We went to our room to bathe after which walked over to the Boardwalk (in jackets, lengthy pants, and layers – the temp drop was loopy!) for dinner. I had deliberate to put on a sleeveless costume and sandals, however went dressed for winter! 

Flying Fish was VERY good however VERY costly ($58 for an entrée). The wine listing was good, and I had Matanzas Creek’s Sauv Blanc. 

This salad was wonderful (break up with Thomas on two plates). The bread was additionally nice. 

And our seafood couscous dish was fairly good. This was probably the most ‘regular’ restaurant meal we had on our journey – it didn’t really feel as mass produced because the In-park eating places did. 

Birch was over it and didn’t contact his noodles, fruit, and carrots. 

Ice Cream Repeat

Since we have been strolling by the ice cream store once more, we had to return! Mazen, Birch, and I all shared this unbelievable sundae! 

Hollywood Studios Overview

This half would have felt fairly outdated to me if it weren’t for Toy Story and Star Wars lands, which have been each fairly cool. It simply appeared to lack the power of the opposite parks, however which may have been me low on power too! And the chilly and wet climate that began round 11 didn’t assist me love this park.


Tower of Terror + Shutdowns

We didn’t get to go on Tower of Terror as a result of 1) Mazen didn’t need to, and a pair of) it shut down for a great a part of the day. Slinky Canine Sprint additionally was shut down for the climate, so even when we had gotten a Genie+ for it we’d not have been in a position to go. With Rise of the Resistance additionally shutting down for an hour, it appeared like every thing was on pause!

Half a day was fantastic

We actually solely wanted half a day to do all we needed to do there, so I’m glad we didn’t have dinner reservations or we’d have felt obligated to remain.

The Finest Components

I believe the very best half was Star Wars, particularly seeing all of the followers of the flicks dressed up! However between Rise, Rock ‘n’ Curler Coaster, and Mickey’s journey, it was a great day.

In case you have younger youngsters, I’d most likely skip Hollywood Studios, however because it was Mazen’s favourite we have been glad we determined to go.
