For day 3 of our Disney Orlando Adventure, my oldest son David, surprised us with theme park tickets to Disney’s Hollywood Studios… Or, as I like to call it, STAR WARS LAND!!
Honestly, I had never heard of this Disney theme park until my son was working in Orlando and told me about it. I checked it out online and it looked intriguing but I had no idea how much I would truly fall in love with this park! When we come back to Orlando, this will totally be on our itinerary !!
Literally the first thing we saw when we got thru the entrance gates was…. STORMTROOPERS!!! My jaw dropped and I was totally in awe!
After the Stormtroopers marched off, Boo was excited to find Lightsabers! He wanted a red one and of course I had to have a Jedi blue! We entertained ourselves the rest of the day have lightsaber duels throughout the park!!!
They of course have other rides and memorabilia here, but for me and my boys it was all about THE FORCE… Everywhere we looked Star Wars touched our hearts, eyes and souls…. We are huge Star Wars fans!
We did love watching Voyage of the Little Mermaid on the theater stage! Boo loved seeing Arial, Flounder, Prince Eric and all his favorites.
I loved riding The Great Movie Ride, which took me back in time thru the legends of the silver screen. I also adored hopping into The Hollywood Brown Derby with the boys! (I’ve always wanted to go there ever since seeing it featured on one of my fave episodes of I Love Lucy… ) The boys were thrilled to ride The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror!!
It goes without saying that we loved Star Tours and we were super excited to see Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away... an amazing show on center stage!!!!
This show was beyond spectacular and we loved EVERY SINGLE MINUTE!!! All of our favorite and beloved characters… right there with us!!!!
There was no better way to end our day than visiting Star Wars Launch Bay! We loved getting to see so many awesome movie props from our favorite heroes and villains!
It was so cool to be so close to items from Star Wars and have a glimpse into that world (or galaxy)….
The highlight for us (beyond all the other totally cool stuff we saw in Launch Bay) was meeting Chewbacca!! All 3 of us were excited to meet him and it was so fun to be right there with one of our fave heroes !!
This was a perfect Disney Day! We gathered up our Lightsabers, and other galactic memorabilia and headed back to the resort for some rest and relaxation… Log in next week to hear more about our Disney Dream Trip with our visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
In the meantime, I’d love to hear from my readers: If you could choose one Star Wars character to be for a day– who would it be and why? I hope you all have a wonderful week and…
“May the Force be with you….”
