Disney Day 3

We got an early start on our third day at Disney World. We left our room and took the monorail and a bus to get to Hollywood Studios pretty much right when the gates opened.

We headed straight for Toystory Mania, a 3d Ride where you shoot at different targets and get a score. This was fun for the whole group!

Next we walked around and took some pictures

The boys got to meet Donald and Daisy Duck

Adam beforehand "Donald Duck's gonna Quack me up!"

Both the boys were so excited to meet them!

Afterwards we rode the Great Movie Ride which was a little slow but still enjoyable. Then we went to our lunch at Hollywood and Vine with the Playhouse Disney Characters.

The boys were greeted by June of the Little Einsteins

They need to update their characters because we watch Playhouse Disney nearly every day and the boys had no clue who the Lion Goliath and Jo Jo the Clown were. But they were happy to meet them and dance and play just the same.

A familiar face, Leo from Little Einsteins

Adam especially got into the dance lunch breaks

Andrew got brave and jumped in a few times

I'm not a buffet fan but I'm glad we did one because the boys had a good time.

The boys got to celebrate their birthdays yet again with cupcakes

After lunch we decided to do some adult rides and we headed over to the Rockin' Roller Coaster. Only Amy & I were brave enough to tackle it and I'm so glad we did. It's based on Aerosmith and has their music and the coaster cars are convertibles. It was completely inside in the dark and takes off super fast and has lots of twists and loops and I've never screamed so loud in my life! My throat was sore the rest of the day but it was SO fun it was totally worth it!

Next up was the Tower of Terror which is about a haunted elevator shaft. Andrew wanted to go on this one but they didn't let him on at the last minute because of height, but it was pretty scary so probably for the best. Gammaw, Amy & I went on this one together and it was fun, I was cracking up the whole time hearing everyone scream as our elevator car got tossed up and down.

After that we visited the Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area which was so overcrowded we didn't stay for too long. Then we decided to head out because the boys really wanted to ride rides and there wasn't much else there for them to do since it was mainly all shows which they didn't care for.

We headed for Animal Kingdom and unfortunately it was SO packed we could hardly walk. So we decided to head for our Must Do's and get out of there as quickly as we could.

So we did the Safari Ride and the Kali River Ride and then got the heck out of there. I was not too impressed with this park but the millions of people crowding the small area didn't help matters.

After a nice nap time back at the hotel we headed for our third park of the day, Magic Kingdom!

We toured the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House

We road Pirates of the Caribbean, Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride, and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad which the boys wanted to ride SO badly but were not allowed on at the last minute. Adam was really close to meeting the limit but the girl running the show was being ultra strict.

Next we had dinner at the Liberty Tree Tavern and then caught some more of the light parade on our way out of the park and back to the room.

Being silly in their Mickey Jammies and Stuffed Mickey Back Packs

Whew, that was a busy day! We were ready for a good night's sleep.

I need to hide in your suitcase next time you go! I know JoJo! Emma, my oldest grand child was JoJo a couple of Halloween's ago. She wouldn't wear the nose, though. And Little Einsteins!
Lifting up prayers!
II Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

Continuing to pray!
Romans 8:35, 36-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?...Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
