Destination DInsey: Hollywood Studios ~ Sunset Blvd.
I know I have probably said this before, but Hollywood Studios is my least favorite of all the parks. When we went in June, by the time we got to Hollywood, we had lost our traveling buddies so it was just Rog and the kiddos and I. Looking at our trusty maps, it appeared there wasn't much down Sunset - mainly Rock N Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror and we knew there was no way the kiddos would do that, so we passed on it all together the first trip.
Going back in Oct, my father in law found turkey legs were down Sunset, so we headed there both times we went! Roger got a free turkey leg the first time - he was the 'lucky winner' and gobbled like a turkey! After munching on turkey legs for dinner, we headed to grab seats for Fantasmic. We had read that it may not be good for the little ones, but the three that were with me thoroughly enjoyed it ~ they were wide eyed the entire time!! Once we left the show, we split up and Rog and I got in line for Rock N Roller Coaster. It was a fun ride, well, with the exception of the first 30 seconds! I don't like the stomach in your throat feeling ~ but once that subsided, it was a great ride! And there was no screaming or laughing from me ~ Aerosmith was blaring, so I was singing along!! While we were in line there, I talked Rog in to riding Tower of Terror with me! It was a little different than I remember it being from years ago - more up and down - but it was GREAT! I would say it is my 2ND favorite ride in all the parks!
