Our Day at Hollywood Studios

We spent yesterday at Hollywood Studios. We have never seen this park as busy and crowded as it was yesterday.

We drove our van over to the park and parked in the RV area. We arrived at 10:30 am (early for us) and walked back to Toy Story Mania to get a fast pass. We didn't think we would get one with the park as full as it was already but we still had to try. The fast pass return time - at an hour and a half after the park open - was already for the evening hours. Needless to say we didn't get a fast pass as we had no intention of staying that long. The regular wait line for the attraction was already 80 minutes.

Since we had lunch reservations at noon we decided to skip our favorite attraction and went on the Great Movie Ride attraction instead. After the ride we had time to look at all the celebrity signatures in the cement out front. Next we visited the Walt Disney Museum and then walked over for lunch at the Hollywood Brown Derby.

We had a very delicious lunch and highly recommend the Hollywood Brown Derby - the service is excellent but beware it is expensive. Notice in the photo that the wall lamps have brass brown derbies for lamp shades! All the famous stars dined at the original Brown Derby in Hollywood especially in the 30s and 40s - it was the place to be seen at and as many business deals were made there (I'm sure) as meals served.

After lunch we visited some shops and then made our way back to our van. With such a big lunch we had left overs from our take-out meal the previous evening for supper.

We had another fun day at Walt Disney World.
