Our last full day at the parks was spent at the Disney MGM Studios. We arrived early, and were able to see the program they had that opened the park. Disney Studios is a pretty small park, but there seems to be quite a few things to do here.
We immediately went to the Rock ‘n Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror. Both were pretty cool. The entire Wedding Party was at this park today, so we were able to get a group photo in front of the Sorcerer’s Hat, which is the icon for this park.
We did experience a couple of rides today that we did not care that much for, particularly The Great Movie Ride and the Backlot Tour. But we did enjoy the Star Wars ride and the Muppetvision 3D show.
It is also humorous to us that anytime we are wanting to get from here to there (this applies to any Park that we’re at), that a parade or song & dance number will break out, and we will have to wait for it to pass. It is not always easy to get where you are going. Sometimes you feel like the entertainment is being shoved down your throat.
We stayed at the park until 5:30 and then went back to the house for some relaxation. We asked the kids if they wanted to go do one more thing, or if they wanted to leave, and it was unanimous that they wanted to go home.
The entire Wedding Party came over to the house, and KK grilled kabobs for dinner. It was another great meal poolside, enjoying each others company. We discussed how driving the Interstates through Florida was like walking on a treadmill, as you get the same view (trees on both sides of the road) for 400 miles. We also learned that Don, Erin’s Dad, chose not to change his watch to Eastern time, so anytime you ask him the time, he will tell you what time it is in Oklahoma first, and then add an hour.
Erin and Kallie (the maid of honor) got their nails done tonight, and she and I are now in possession of the rings. Tomorrow’s the Big Day!
