Disneymoon Adventures: Hollywood Studios

And now: Disney's Hollywood Studios!  We spent a lot of time here because there was a lot to see and I'm really glad we did.  It was also much emptier earlier in the week, giving us the opportunity to ride the big rides- including the Rock 'n' Rollercoaster which we did twice back-to-back- before the crowds showed up.  So without further adieu: pictures!

Oh Muppets, you're so funny :)  One Man's Dream was basically a museum of Walt's life, and it was Mr. Geek's favorite attraction at Hollywood Studios.  Now don't get me wrong, I'm definitely a museum person, but nothing beats Toy Story Midway Mania- that game/ride was INSANELY awesome!  (Take the Buzz Lightyear ride in Magic Kingdom and multiply it by INFINITY.  I'm not even exaggerating.)  We got to the park as early was we could to ride that one- not quite at opening, since it was a few days in and we'd taken to sleeping in a bit (as late as 8am!)- and we had every intention of just standing in line and waiting without bothering with Fast Passes as it was really the only major thing we wanted to hit that day.  As it turns out, the wait time had not been calibrated recently, so our wait was only half as long as what was listed!  (I have a tips-and-tricks post coming up with a bit of wisdom on lines and wait times that we learned on this trip- stay tuned!)  The Rock-n-Rollercoaster was certainly epic for both of us- we rode it three times and each time it was accompanied by a different song!  (We didn't know they changed the songs, as I'd never ridden it before and he'd only ridden it once.)  The Tower of Terror (or ERMAHGERD THE TERR OF TERR as we started calling it) was also awesome and we rode that one twice throughout the course of the week- and I was sorely tempted to buy a Hollywood Tower Hotel bathrobe or "do not disturb" sign, though I resisted the urge.

So what is your favorite attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios?

Much love,
The Geeks
