Days 5 and 6: Hollywood Studios, Blizzard Beach and Spirit of Aloha

Beginning to realise there just isn’t quite as much time for blogging while I’m out here, given the amount of sleep I need anyway!

But still, I can squeeze a few days together 🙂

So yesterday we hit up Hollywood Studios for a real scorcher of a day! When we got into the park we were greeted by the glorious Olaf Distribution Center, where Olaf fans were being handed out, and we would not have survived without them!


The beauty of this park is while there are fewer rides, there are more indoor, air conditioned activities like Muppet Vision 3D, Star Tours etc, so we saved those for the middle of the day heat.

We grabbed early lunch at Pizza Planet, an absolute must-do for Toy Story fans, and had bookings for an early dinner at the Sci-Fi Dine In Theater (full reviews to come), so we really didn’t go hungry..


We also encountered the longest ride queue we’ve had so far: Rock’n’Roller Coaster, 75 minutes, and at over an hour and a half, we weren’t going to attempt Toy Story Midway Mania, so we’ll save that for another day. Other activities included The Tower of Terror and Voyage of the Little Mermaid, and the evening was wrapped up with Fantasmic, which we would have never got into without a Fastpass, it was phenomenally busy.

Today we had a lazy Blizzard Beach day; the girls could just swim all day and be perfectly content, but we didn’t need more than a few hours before we’d done most things and the heat had got to us, but that was fine because we had a booking for the 5.15pm Spirit of Aloha Dinner show at the Polynesian Resort.


Absolutely cannot deny the service and the food were fantastic! The show itself left a little to be desired; it could have easily just been song and dance performances, but it had been scripted into a story of a group of dancers throwing a party (I’m not even entirely sure what the story was if I’m honest), but overall it was a great meal and the Samoan fire dancer really stole the show, although my aunt and uncle did give him a run for his money!
