  • You guys really captures things I missed as I guess I flew through Hollywood Studios the other day. Maybe it is because of all of the construction and I was just going to the Fastpass options we had. I did notice and was amazed at the the Toy Story Mania cue was a shorter wait time for the time of day we reserved it and entered. We were able to ride it twice (Fastpass and waiting) to enjoy both cues.

    I can’t believe we missed the sliders and waffle stands. I am glad we didn’t get the Mickey brownie – we have heard mixed review for them.

    Red Carpet Dreams was interesting and nice.
