We started off day 4 at Hollywood Studios (which will always be MGM to me). We were headed to Toy Story Mania to get a fastpass when our little character spotter spotted Woody! Woody had been eluding us all week so we were super excited. Even better the line wasn’t that long!
They had fun little things set up to keep the kids happy:
Hudson learned to give “zerbits” this week:
A super exciting bonus was that Buzz was there too!
We had reservations at 11, so after we saw Woody and Buzz, we went on the hunt for Lightening McQueen. On our way, Hud (aka character spotter) spotted Sully and Mike Wozoscki (I have no idea how to spell that). Of course, Hudson said, “I want to meet him!” So, we got in the (short) line:
He was really excited to show them his muscles:
After that it was time for Lightening and his pal Mater (we almost accidentally got in line for phineus and herb, and I have no idea who those people are):
Then it was time for our lunch at Hollywood and Vine. It wasn’t our favorite meal, but Hud loved the characters…so that is all that matters!
First up was Leo from Little Einstein’s. Little Einstein’s has a special place in my heart because it was the first show Hud really watched and really liked.
June from Little Einstein's was next. She kept coming back by our table and Hud would jump up every time to greet her.
They did a little dance party in the middle of lunch. Hud was pretty into it:
Handy Manny was there! Hud was pumped!!! Hud asked him where his tools were. :)
The green army man from Toy Story was outside Toy Story mania:
Hud has not stopped saluting since our trip and always adds a “yes, sir!” to it. :) After this we rode Toy Story mania twice in a row – with NO wait. That is huge!
We headed over to the animation area to see the Little Mermaid show and then headed into the character spot.
Here is Hud meeting Frozone and Mr. Incredible (or as Hud calls him “the Man”).
We met Pooh so many times during the trip, he became a close personal friend. :)
We stopped to watch the parade – which Hudson was not interested in at all. He preferred to dance around instead.
They have a great show – Disney Jr. Live. It had little shows from Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Handy Manny and Little Einstein’s.
Hud was enthralled:
After a very fun day at HS, Hud told us he wanted to go “flying” again. Which meant he wanted to ride Soarin’ at Epcot. So, we headed to Epcot and rode it one more time. After that, we headed back to Downtown Disney for another fantastic meal at Wolfgang Puck Express.
This time we remembered the boat back to our resort. After the “captain” gave me grief about my Nebraska shirt (and even more grief when he found out I was a Baylor bear, and even MORE grief when Hud gave him a “sic' em bears”)…we were on our way.
Looking back at downtown Disney:
It was such a pleasant way to get back to our resort. and a wonderful way to spend our last night at Disney. One more day at Magic Kingdom to come!
