Day two dawned with a purpose for us...get Abbey in the "Jedi Training" show at Hollywood studios. They take kids and they are allowed to be part of a public show. They take only a limited number of kids, and it is first come, first served basis.
We were up and on the first bus from our hotel bound for Hollywood studios. After the wait for them to open the gates, John and Abbey took off for the line waiting to get registered. They made it and Abbey was in!! (Elijah opted out. We tried and tried to get him to do it. He had heard you fight against Darth Vader and was afraid) She was scheduled to take part in the 6:00 show, so we went off to enjoy the rest of our day.
And enjoy it we did!! It was great!!
The first ride we went on was Tower of Terror
Then we went to Rock and Roll Rollercoaster
We decided to visit Starbucks and have a snack...Frappuccinas and huge chocolate cupcakes were being enjoyed when we heard this loud announcing-like music. A whole brigade of stormtroopers came marching by. They put on a little show right there in the street. Abbey was enthralled!
Meeting Goofy was more Elijah's speed.
We had a great time the whole day. Then it was time to get Abbey in place for her Jedi training.
They paraded the dressed up kids through the crowds shouting, "Make way for the Jedi's".
Abbey got to have her turn being a part of the show, fighting a girl villain pal of Darth Vadar.
She loved it!
We then went to FantasMic. We were going to leave because the only open seats were in places that didn't afford a good view. A guide motioned for John to go inside the reserved section and we have a great seat of the entire show!
Quickly, we then made our way to the Star Wars light show.
It was a great end to a great day! We were sooo tired, but soo happy! Everyone fell fast asleep, except for me, and I joined them pretty soon.
