Thursday was our Anniversary! 9 Years!
We actually set our alarms this day, so we could get to Hollywood Studios as they were opening. We wanted to make sure we got fast passes for Toy Story Mania, and were hoping to get in line, and ride it first thing. Well, the ride was broken, but we were still able to get our fast passes and just hope that it would be working at our return time. Since the line for the ride was closed, we were the first in line to meet Buzz and Woody! Michael is still a little unsure about these guys. Toy Story is one of Michael’s Favorite movies, so you would think he would love meeting them, but they are huge and I think that is what throws Michael off a little. While Woody was signing our book, he turned to “Andy’s” page and just hugged and hugged the book. It was so sweet. Also, when Buzz was going to sign our book, I tried to turn the page for him, so he would sign it on his page, and buzz “told me” to calm down that he knew what he was doing. It was pretty funny!
After saying hi to Buzz and Woody, we went to Disney Junior Live, Voyage of The Little Mermaid, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, and went to meet some more characters. Frozone and Mr. Incredible were a lot of fun! And Michael was excited that Frozone was “brown like him.” We were going to say hi to Wreck it Ralph, and Vanelopi, but their line was really long, so we decided to pass. Then it was time for our Toy Story Fastpass. That is such a great ride, I just wish the line wasn’t so long ALL THE TIME! We grabbed some lunch, and headed out of the park.
We went back to the resort to nap, and then we had reservations for our anniversary dinner at Animal Kingdom. We ate at Yak & Yeti. It was really good, but we would just stick to going to the quick service instead of the table service. The food is the same, just a lot cheaper at the quick service window.
By the time we were done with dinner, Animal Kingdom was closed, so we headed back to our resort. We decided to just hang around the resort and swim instead of going to Magic Kingdom like we had done every night.
The pool was great, and Michael had a blast. After swimming, we went to the “Movie on the lawn.” They were playing Lilo and Stitch. During the movie, we got to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from where we were sitting.
After the movie, it was time for bed. We only had one more day of vacation left!
