Disney Date Night

One of the nights while we were in Orlando for the YF&R Leadership Conference, Brad and I slipped out to Hollywood Studios. Boy, did we have a great time. I can’t wait until we can go back with more time on our hands!

We mainly rode rides; we didn’t really get to see any of the shows because it was later in the day. The first thing we did was ride the Aerosmith ride – it was fun! We were in line with a couple on their 10th anniversary trip – without kids! – and they gave us tips. They said it was worth it to wait a little extra to ride in the front, so we did!

We also got to ride the Tower of Terror. I know I have ridden that thing before, but for the life of me I can’t remember a thing about going to Disney when I was younger! (That’s what this blog is for – my horrible memory!)

We also rode the Toy Story ride. I didn’t know what to expect, but that ride is right up my alley! It’s filled with carnival-style games using a virtual ball gun to pop things, break plates, etc. I’m so competitive, so Toy Story was the ride for me!

The whole thing is 3D – very neat!

We took a quick spin through the Toy Story photo house.

On the way out we got a picture in front of the wizard hat and then bought Blair a bubble gun. Fun times!!
