{WDW Day 5} Hollywood Studios

Back with more of our Disney trip!!! Today I'm recapping our day at Hollywood Studios! This park has changed so much since the last time I've been there!! And I think it's safe to say that this was the boys', well at least Levi's, favorite park!
We got there bright and early because we were on a mission! We wanted to be one of 200 kiddos to get to sign up for Jedi Training! I had done a lot of research and knew exactly where to go when the gates opened! So Paul and the boys took off, while I stayed behind with the stroller, and they high tailed it to the sign up station....and the boys got it!!! They were pumped! We had the 2 o' clock show!!

At this point the park wasn't open to the public yet and our breakfast reservation wasn't until 9:20, so we had some time to spare!  We literally jumped on Star Tours (Levi's favorite ride), then made our way over to some meet and greets! I figured we needed to take advantage of those before the park opened! The boys were excited to meet Kylo Ren! They had been talking about it. It was so funny when they actually did because both boys where a bit taken aback! He was very intimidating! They just kinda stood there and starred at him!

On our way out we spotted some Storm Troopers! Levi was in AWE and followed them right out and down the "street"!

I love this pic of them looking at each other!

It was finally time for our breakfast and we all were hungry! We had reservations at Hollywood and Vine! It was a character breakfast with four of the pals from Disney Junior! It was a very filling buffet, so good!

We met Jake...

Princess Sofia...

Handy Manny....

and Doc McStuffins!!

After breakfast we just started making our rounds of rides! We ventured over to Pixar Place for Toy Story Mania!! It's one of our family favs!!
But first we spotted a toy solider!

Pixar Place is a little alley way....with Toy Story Mania, and Buzz and Woody character spots! It was decorated SO stinking cute!!

And inside, the wait was super cute too...


After Toy Story Mania, it was time to catch the 'March of the First Order'! This was awesome!!! And if you have any kind of Star Wars fan they will love this!! 

We grabbed a pic after and then it was time for Jedi Training!!!

We got the boys all checked in...

and then they proceeded to march to the stage!  They each got robes and a light saber!

I got so many cute shots of the boys! Levi was really taking it seriously!

Then it was time to fight either Darth Vader or Slither Sister....they both did so good!

After that we hopped over and met Chewy!

And then grabbed lunch, were we got these amazingly huge but good cupcakes for dessert!!

Then it was time for our Rock'n Roller Coaster Fast Pass! I wasn't sure how Lane would like it, but my no fear, roller coaster loving boy loved it and rode it with me and then again with Paul!

After that we caught some shows! Beauty and the Beast Musical and the Frozen Sign along! Loved them both!!

After that it was time for our dinner! We had reservations at the Sci Fi Drive-In Theater....highly recommend this place! You get to sit in cars and watch movies on the big screen! It feels like outside and at the drive in! And the food was very good!!

After dinner there was one ride left to do, but Paul didn't care to do it. So Lane and I went to ride Tower of Terror while Paul and Levi scoped out seats for the night show!
(very back left corner)

We all watched Jingle Bell Jingle BAM and then said goodbye to Hollywood Studios!!

It was such a fun day!!! HS isn't a very big park, at least compared to the others, so it felt like we were going back and forth all day, but we enjoyed it! With all the Star Wars things there, it was a big hit with the boys!! There are not a whole lot of rides and it was kinda show heavy, but they certainly did not disappoint!! Up next...our last day at Disney!
