It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

Disney World Day Two

On the agenda for day two was Hollywood Studios.  We headed out and caught the 8:30 am bus to the park and were excited because it actually WAS NOT RAINING.  There were clouds in the sky, but no rain and thankfully it stayed that way for the entire day.

We started off our day getting fast passes for The Tower of Terror which said to come back about 9:45.  So we headed over to the Rockin Roller Coaster.  Kyle was about 1/4 inch too short to ride so I got a parent swap pass and Mike took the others on the ride.  Kyle and I walked around and waited for a bit until they came off the ride.  Ryan decided at the last minute he didn't want to ride it.  He is not a big roller coaster fan, so we met him in the gift shop.  Everyone loved the ride.  Then it was my turn.  It was AWESOME!!!  I was able to take Kaylee, Tiff and Jake back through with me so they got to ride it a second time.

After that we all went over to Tower of Terror.  We all rode it and it was really fun.  Next we went to the Chronicles of Narnia Exhibit.  It was interesting.  We went for fast passes for the Toy Story Mania ride and even though it was only 11:00 am, our return time was for 8:00 pm.  YIKES!!!  The line was 90 minutes long so we just fast passed it.  Next we rode the great movie ride.  It was a fun one even though the kids only knew a couple of the movies in it.  The next thing we did was the Back Lot Tour.  It was fun to see how they do some of the effects when they make movies and also fun to see some of the real props used in some of the movies we have seen.

We took a break for lunch. Once again I had packed lunches for us.  We headed to the lockers and sat outside to eat.

After lunch we went to watch the Indiana Jones Show.  We are all big fans of those movies and it was a really good show. Following the show we spent a little bit of time letting the kids play in the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground.  It was cool.  The grass was all really tall and so were the bugs and stuff, just like if the kids had been shrunk.

After this playtime, Mike took some of the kids back to the hotel for some pool and rest time.  He took Kaylee, Jacob and Kyle.  Kyle was really tired.  Ryan and Tiffany wanted to stay and do more stuff so we stayed.  While the others swam in the hotel pool, we went to the Sounds Dangerous show, the Lights Motors Action Stunt Show which was amazing!!!!, and the American Idol Experience.  I so wish that Tiff were just one year older this trip so she could have tried out for the American Idol Experience (they have an age 14 minimum).  She would have blown away the competition, at least in the show we saw.  It was fun, but would have been more fun if Tiffany could have performed in it.  Next we went to the Muppets 3D show, ate pizza at Pizza Planet for dinner, and walked around the One Man's Dream exhibit while we waited for Mike and the Kids to come back.

Finally it was 8:00 and we could ride Toy Story Mania.  That is one of my favorites in the whole park.  It is so fun to ride a ride that is comepletely interactive.  We all wished we could ride it again, but with the line being 100 minutes long, there was no way we were going to wait in it.

Kaylee and Tiffany wanted to ride Tower of Terror again, so they went off to that ride and the rest of us waited in line to watch Fantasmic.  Mike, Kyle and Jake didn't feel like sticking around for the show, so they left and went back to the hotel.  The rest of us waited for the show and it was so worth it.  It was really really good!!  With the show over, we rushed out of the park to catch our bus back to the hotel.  We got back to the hotel just after 11 pm.  So our day was over 14 hours long.  It ended up being a beautiful day, NO RAIN!!  And we all had a really great time.

Here are some photos from day two.
