November 4, 2009 – Day 6 – MGM (Hollywood Studios) & Anniversary Surprise! – Part One!

Day Six – November 4, 2009

We woke up, but didn’t rush too much. We were starting to get tired! Today was our Hollywood Studios day. We didn’t have a lot planned to do this day as the heat was starting to get to us. I don’t know how people do it in the summer or early fall. No Thank you!

We headed to breakfast … Alyssa looks so tired!

Our little artist was more concerned with drawing pictures instead of eating.

I really enjoyed staying at Saratoga Springs. It was alot of fun! It sure as heck beat the beginning of the trip at the All Star Movies. LOL I am a hotel snob now. The All Stars just don’t do it anymore. I really hated the Music when I went in December. That sealed it. From now on if I am in need of a filler night at a value resort it will be the Pop Century for sure.

We got a bus and headed to the Studios. We arrived before 10 am, so not too bad!

Posted Image

I know there are “Hat Haters” out there, but I personally like it.

Posted Image

Brandon and a fellow Police Officer! So nice to know they are keeping the parks safe. LOL

Posted Image

We headed towards Tower of Terror.

Posted Image

The Christmas Decorations were slowly starting to show up.

Villains in Vouge. Love it. One of my favorite stores!

The Crowds were pretty low today.

Pete and I sat with Alyssa (ok ok we got her an ice cream…LOL) while her mom and dad went on the Tower of Terror.

After they were done we told them to head over to the Rock N Roller Coaster and we took Alyssa to the Beauty and the beat Show.

We got great seats. Alyssa played on the benches waiting for the show to start. I still miss 4 for a Dollar. But the wait wasn’t long. Laura and Brandon made it back before the show started.

Alyssa loved the show!

We went to check in for lunch at the 50’s Prime Time Cafe. Alyssa had a mini meltdown. She was hot and tired. She fell asleep by the time we made our way over to check in.

We were seated with in 15 minutes. Ahh so nice and cool inside.

We had a great lunch as usual…We love it here. Alyssa woke up while we were all eating so we got her some lunch too.

After Lunch Pete and I did a little shopping while Alyssa enjoyed the Playhouse Disney Show.

Pete and I headed for the bus. We had a special date! It was our 1st Wedding Anniversary and I had cooked up a great Surprise!!!

Alyssa and Laura and Brandon stayed for the parade.

Alyssa is a BIG Pixar Fan!

After the Parade Alyssa, Laura and Brandon headed back to the hotel too. It was just too hot for Alyssa. She was all red in the face. Plus they wanted to see us all dressed and ready to go!

They snapped a picture of the tree on the way out. It’s November 4th and the tree was up!

Pete and I were showering and Alyssa came into our room with a sweet card! I love that my sister gets Alyssa to “Sign” all of her cards!

We gave our hugs and kisses and headed out to our taxi! Where were we going? What was the big surprise???

    Love the pictures. We watched that parade last year for the first time from the steps of the America Idol attraction. We were in the shade and it was glorious (considering the heat!). I used to skip the parades, but now they are fun because of our little one. Do you not do ToT? It is a GREAT attraction. If you are afraid of the drop you should still go through the line- the theming and pre show are fantastic!

    I don’t understand hat haters! I love the hat! Love all your pics. What a great time! And I agree, I have no idea how people deal with the heat of Orlando in the summer!
