Trip Report: May 2012 – Star Wars Weekend

       We started the day at Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekend!  Be prepared for lots of pictures in this entry.

       After running to grab fastpasses for Toy Story Mania (the line was already 45 minutes long!), we grabbed our cupcake breakfast.

Cupcake #7 – Butterfinger
Cupcake #8 – Darth Vader

      After breakfast, we rode Tower of Terror and Rock N Rollercoaster again.  We did MuppetVision 3D and then it was time for our fastpasses.  We got put in the short line again! YEY!  After seeing Lights! Motor! Action!, we decided the park was getting too crowed and left for Epcot.

       Epcot was also extremely crowded.  We grabbed lunch in Germany, picked up some presents for the family, and decided to call it a day.  We didn’t even ride our sentimental Spaceship Earth again because the wait was over 30 minutes!  We went back to the hotel, swam for a while, and took a nap.

      For dinner, I had made reservations for us at the Hoop Dee Doo Review, which I had heard great things about.  The show was enjoyably cheesy, the food was pretty good (I’m not a huge fried chicken or rib fan), and the strawberry shortcake dessert was wonderful.  However, our server left something to be desired.  She was not very attentive and seemed to have her timing off.  Our drinks went unfilled, dirty plates stayed on our table, and she seemed to come to the table at awkward times (the show has various breaks for servers to come switch out courses).  All-in-all, it was fun, but there were other meals I enjoyed more and for the additional cost, I’m not sure I’ll do it again for a while.   It was almost midnight by the time we got back to the hotel so after packing up a bit, we fell asleep.
