Another day in Florida, another day we give our money to the black hole of revenue that is Disney.
It’s a black hole for a reason though, because it’s just so fantastic and they make you feel so loved. Disney World has a way with details unlike any other theme park. Ben and I joined our relatives at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park yesterday, and it was a mighty fun time!
Tower of Terror was a major favorite among all of us, except for when the ride stopped for two seconds (part of the ride, not a malfunction) at the sight of a ghostly girl-doll figure. In the heat of the moment I screamed and pointed to it: “What the hell is that!?”
I’m a wuss and a potty mouth.
Thanks to my uncle for a lot of these photos!
“Fantasmic” lights, water, and sound spectacular!
Ben decided that we should play a game throughout our day at the theme park. The game was to say, “Hollywood,” whenever you spotted someone taking a selfie using a selfie stick. I believe we caught a total of three families in the act of taking a selfie with a selfie stick, but we also saw a couple others just in possession of a selfie stick.
Practical, useful, but oh so geeky.
Backing it up to the morning, I was fueled by a Greek yogurt bowl with honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, banana, and peanut butter. Plus a quarter of a giant waffle that Madre made.
I didn’t take a picture of lunch, but it was a small avocado, hummus, spinach sandwich with a clementine, baby carrots, and veggie straws. I was trying to avoid buying food at Disney ($$$$$$$$$$), but I failed at 5 pm when I was in need of a snack. Thus, I bought a KIND bar and a banana for a total of $5. The paaaaain.
It was either an expensive snack or Alison’s “hangriness”, because we didn’t sit down for dinner until 9pm at Amura Japanese restaurant, where my parents joined us.
So much sushi, so much hooray! The sushi pictured here was just for my immediate family of four. Heh heh.
Needless to say, we had a fabulous day yesterday. Everyone has been dealing with slight sicknesses around our household, so today we’re taking a break from theme parks and having a chill day. The fact that I slept in until 10 and posted this at 1 pm probably makes that obvious.
Have a great day, friends!
So tell me:
Would you ever use a selfie stick?
Do you like to bring snacks with you to theme parks?
Have you seen hidden Mickey’s if you’ve been to Disney?
