Florida November 2015 Recap - Day 7 at Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom

I'll be doing a recap for each and every glorious day of our last Disney vacation (14 days worth so in the words of Scar, be prepared)...

As we had thoroughly enjoyed our last visit to Hollywood Studios, we knew we would need to go at least once more before the trip was over (sob), so we donned non-matching outfits (shock horror!) and were off on our way. 

If memory serves me, I believe we had some fast passes booked first thing for the Aerosmith Rock'n'Rollercoaster and the Tower of Terror - our faves! I won't go over all the details of these rides again, but just have a look at our ride photos and you can see how much fun we had...

Yes, yes I know what you're thinking...what photogenic girls we are. What can I say? It's a gift. After we'd had our adrenaline fix, we rushed over to see the Beauty and the Beast stage show. Unfortunately we missed the first five minutes or so (and Gaston's main part much to our dismay), but from what we saw, the show was great. We did get a few strange looks from the parents sitting around us when we started to sing along, but it was just too hard not to!

I hadn't worn my classic Minnie ears that day as I was wearing a bright pink and purple Tangled t-shirt and I have a weird issue about wearing pink and red together, plus I was looking for any excuse to buy this bad boy of a bow! Only at Disneyworld could you wear such a tacky extravagant head accessory and not even get looked at twice. What a place. I've not yet tried it out on the streets of Glasgow, but I've got a feeling it won't be classed as appropriate attire.

Moving on, we spent quite a lot of that day in and out of the cool shops in Hollywood Studios where we picked up some souvenirs for ourselves and our family and friends back home who I have no doubt were missing us dearly. To be totally honest with you I can't really remember what else we done that day (probably a lot of eating and fangirling over Disney Princess merch) but soon it was time for the Frozen Sing-a-long Show! Neither of us had been to this before so we were both pretty dang excited, regardless of the fact that we were the only childless adults in the theatre. The show was lots of fun and really really funny at parts - but it was totally not what I expected! Although Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf did feature in the show, it was mostly narrated by two Arrandelle townsfolk. This slightly put me off at first but they were hilarious - especially the guy who was really quite camp. The best part of the show however, was right at the end when (spoilers ahead) Elsa made it snow! Inside the theatre!!! 

By the time we came out of the theatre, peed, had a snack, drank some water and peed again, it was starting to get dark. This was the perfect opportunity for some creepy photos in front of the Tower of Terror! Prepare to see the most photogenic gals in the world yet again...

The Magic Kingdom just so happened to be open until 11pm that night so we used this time to hop over to our favourite park and get our fill of our favourite rides, you've guessed it - the three mountains! (Although apologies, I only seem to have the Splash Mountain photo!)

We also used this time in Magic Kingdom to get something to eat for dinner. A week into the holiday we were more than a little bit bored of hot dogs and by some twist of fate Gaston's Tavern had started serving a hearty beef stew that very day - in fact the cast member that served us informed us that we were the very first people to try it! What an honour!

The stew was lovely and cosy and warm (although not a patch on yours mum!) and was exactly what we needed. There's that Disney Magic at work again.

¡Por favour manténgase alejado de las puertas!
