Walt Disney World Day 3 (5/01/14) – summary & trip log
Started off the morning boarding a bus to Disney’s Hollywood Studios around 8:30am.
Arrived just after the 9am park opening and made my way into the studios as it kicked off its 25 Anniversary celebration.
Wandered down Hollywood Blvd taking some pictures then found a spot for the 10am re-dedication event.
After the event visited with some friends and roamed the park a bit circling down commissary lane and the backlot before ending up on Sunset Blvd.
Then made my way to Toy Story to rejoin my group and use a Fastpass+ for Toy Story Midway Mania.
Set the high mark for the ride/day/month which was not that high then walked down Mickey Ave and around to the Streets of America. Ended up at the Backlot Express for lunch then used a Fastpass+ for Star Tours (even though it was not needed).
At this point the group separated.. some stayed at the Studios, others back to the room and I hopped on a bus to Art of Animation then transferred to a Downtown Disney Bus.
Walked through the Market Place and out to the far end of the West Side before returning to the Pleasure Island bus stop. This time transferred at Pop Century on my return to the Studios.
Strolled down Hollywood Blvd and made my way out to Toy Story Pizza Planet for dinner then walked down Mickey Ave stopping at One Man’s Dream before heading to the Great Movie Ride.
Next up to find a spot for the Stars of the Studios Motorcade.
After the procession found some friends to visit with and wait for the fireworks.
Walked through the dance party while waiting then enjoyed the show before making my way back to the resort bus to call it a night.
