Travel is an interesting thing. One day you are a few miles from home enjoying some Impressionists inspired sculptures and the next day, you are a few hundred of miles away and
your beloved teddy is being precariously dangled in mid-air by a Stormtrooper.
That’s the way it goes some days – especially when it’s Star Wars Weekend at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. There were lots of bad guys
and lots of good guys.
It was fun seeing Minnie dressed as Leia too.
We went in a lot of different directions at Hollywood Studios – choosing to do our favorite things first. One of which was the Toy Story Mania Ride. It’s not just for kids. Okay – so maybe it IS just for kids, but big kids (like us!) are welcome.
I really like the way giant toys and games decorate the queue.
Remember the game of Candy Land? Imagine it much, much larger – like wall-sized.
We also took some time to look at the model for the new Fantasyland. It’s amazing how much detail they put in these things. Can you see the twin Dumbo rides? It’s going to be really cool.
Then we headed to EPCOT to see the Flower and Garden Festival and the World – uh, the World Showcase. Sebastian agrees with me about travel being interesting. He says to tell you one day you can be dangling mid-air at the hands of the evil empire and the next you can be cuddled by a Moroccan beauty.
I guess in his mind it all balances out in the end.
