Disneyworld Recap - Days 5 & 6

Ahhh my Disney recap is coming to an end today, but don't worry, I'll be back with all of my tips and advice that I learned soon!

Day 5 was our Hollywood Studios day! I'll admit, when planning this day I thought it wouldn't be as much as fun as the other parks because there really is only 1 ride that our kids could go and the rest of the stuff you do here is all shows. But man was I wrong! These shows they put on were seriously incredible.  Everything is done top notch and not cheesy in any way. 

We started our day at HS by running walking briskly to meet Buzz & Woody.  I read that they are the one of the longest meet & greets and I knew we had to meet them in time before our 9:30am Little Mermaid show.  We got to Buzz & Woody within minutes and were the 4th in line, not bad :)

For some reason, Brayden was actually nervous to meet them! He had been really chill about meeting all of the other "boy" characters (only getting really nervous with the princesses) but with these guys he was hesitant.  I don't think he could believe he was actually meeting them, like he was star struck a little.  These guys are his favorite. I walked up with him at first.

Ella was terrified of them and I think Avery managed to hold it together this time :)

We then saw the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show and it was so good.  I literally got chills during it because it was just awesome to be in Disney, watching this amazing show they put on and seeing it all through the kids' eyes as I mentioned, it was just priceless.

We went off my original plan this day and headed to see Muppets 4D at the hubs request and I'm so glad we did! Originally I hadn't planned for us to see that show but it was really fun.

There weren't as many photo opps here as the other parks but we still took advantage when we saw them


We went as saw the Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage show and Ella was having another one of her epic meltdowns, poor girl was overtired I'm sure, and overstimulated

Again, another show that did not disappoint.  Brayden was absolutely immersed in this show and Ella was all about it until half way through when she decided she'd rather take a little nap

Meeting Phineas and Ferb was pretty cool for this guy

Same with Mike & Sully!

We had lunch at a really nice Italian restaurant but I started not feeling well at all during it. Like I was having constant motion sickness and was so dizzy.  I started noticing any time I would sit still it would happen but if I was out and about I didn't notice.  I later realized it was vertigo and it continued to haunt me for a week after we got home.  No fun at all.

After lunch we headed back to our resort for pool time! The kids so needed this break to recharge and have fun in the water.  It really worked out perfectly where I fed Avery then we walked down to the pool and she fell asleep so parked her where we could see her and she slept the entire time we swam. It was nice to give Brayden & Ella undivided attention without worrying about Avery.  There was a huge 50ft water slide at the hotel and Brayden went down it multiple times, each time I was still impressed with him.

There was also a mini slide and the kids loved going down that one as well

This girl was so cute, everytime we walked past a window she would stop and say in the cutest voice "I see animals!!"

After much needed pool time we got ready and went back to HS. We had a FP+ for the Frozen sing along and were planning to stay for the Fantasmic show.

The Frozen sing along was hilarious.  There really wasn't much of Elsa & Anna but it had 2 narrators that were so dang funny

Ella was all smiles during the show

We met Mater & Lighting McQueen after the Frozen show, the kids loved them


 We headed to the seats for the Fantasmic show but quickly realized the kids were not going to make it through it. Everyone was getting cranky so we called it a night.  I was bummed because I really wanted to see this show, probably the most out of all of the nighttime fireworks but oh well, we have something to look forward to next time!

The next day was the day we were leaving, but we had an afternoon flight so we slept in (well kind of, can you really ever sleep in with a baby or small children?) and then made a yummy breakfast in our room.  We got all packed and hung around the hotel until it was time for the Magical Express to pick us up

His face pretty much summed up how we all felt about leaving :(

And that's a wrap! We had the absolutle BEST time in Disney and I'm already thinking about our next trip (which probably won't be for 2 years, but still)
