After breakfast at the Bayliner Diner again we made a trip out to the Florida Mall to see what it had to offer. The answer? Not much. We’re not big ones for shopping at the best of times and found no stores appealing to us at all, well, except for M&M World. It’s impossible to imagine the amount of things they have in there with the M&M branding.


We bought some M&Ms and wondered if there would ever be another store which features just one brand of chocolate…like a KitKat World or the World of Whisper. I doubt it.

After we came back to the hotel for a brief siesta before heading out to Hollywood Studios. When we arrived we went straight onto Toy Story Midway Mania, still number one for fun ride. Despite my best efforts however I still couldn’t get a top score. I refuse to believe the highest score ever is over 500,000.

We watched Walt Disney’s One Man’s Dream to get out of the sun more than anything before going to Muppet Vision 3D and then off to Star Tours. I never realised they offered different experiences and after our tour I looked it up. There can be up to 54 variations! You have two opening scenes of which we’ve seen both followed by three middle scenes (we’ve seen two), three holo-messages and three endings. This experience saw us meet Chewbacca and Jar-Jar Binks (ugh).

Our final FastPass was for the Frozen Singalong but we would have got out around 8.30 and we didn’t want to end up not being able to get into Fantasmic. So we went to the theatre and sat for an hour until the show started. It was fun, got hot at times and I’d of liked to see more action than just video being projected onto a wall of water, but still, an entertaining show.

Late night back again with another late night planned for tomorrow. We need to get our sleep.
