Disney's Hollywood Studios

 

Welcome to Disney's Hollywood Studios

It is a little overcast right now, but it supposed to clear up later on today

Let's start with Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway

"Nothing can stop us now...."

This ride is a visual overload.  It is impossible to see everything in just one ride

The sets change quickly too.  You have to really pay attention

Time for a dance lesson

It is a great ride and definitely worth the wait

Time for some old school Star Wars

Star Tours is still a lot of fun.

C3-PO approves

Time for some Muppet-Vision 3D

The park really has a fun vibe

You can watch some Mickey and Minnie short films in this Theatre

Time for Rock'n'Rollercoaster

This is still one of the more popular rides in the park

There's nothing like that initial launch

Next door is Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy

It is a fun show with a pretty impressive car animatronic

Outside you can meet DJ

and Cruz Ramirez

Time to check into the Twilight Zone

This thrill ride keeps going strong

It is so much fun - and all of the details are awesome

Looking down Sunset Blvd.

Make sure when you are at the park that you check out the details of the park that are NOT in Galaxy's Edge or Toy Story Land.  There is a lot of neat things to check out

Night is falling but we're just starting our coverage of the park

Next up is Toy Story Land

Animal Kingdom - Pandora

 


Welcome to Pandora - the World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom

This place is unbelievable.  Photos really do not do it justice

These are floating mountains

Everywhere you look is something unearthly

Check out the flora

This is the line for the Flight of Passage ride

A totem for one of the flying creatures found in Pandora

Cave art

The queue takes you through a bioluminescent forest 

The flora glows at night

The skull of a banshee is massive

Here is one of the avatars waiting to be synced

A mural in the waiting area before heading to the sync chambers where you will get to ride a banshee while using an synced avatar

Lots of water features in this land

This is Pongu Pongu

The featured drink here is the Night Blossom and it is delicious

The second attraction in the area is the Na'vi River Journey

You board boats and float down a river through the bioluminescent forest

It really is beautiful

A shaman bids you farewell.
