Disney's Hollywood Studios

We were so proud of the whole family for waking up early enough to make it to Hollywood Studios being nearly at the front of the line! As soon as we were in, we powered along to Rock'n'roller coaster. Unfortunately our little thrill seeker Alysa was not tall enough! She sat out with a relieved Oma Lulu. She was, however, pleased to discover that her height was no barrier to go on Tower of Terror which she loved!

Good job family for being nearly at the very front of the line!
We met up with the Yoongs and continued to make our way around the park. Our lunch stop today was Sci-fi Dine-in Restaurant, a 50s-style drive-in "theater". The burgers and shakes were solid and it didn't take long for everyone to feel full. The children didn't seem to remember the movie clips from our previous visit and their eyes were glued to the screen!

As we entered Beauty and the Beast, we experienced one of the benefits of having a member on an electric scooter. There was an area reserved for guests with mobility problems and the whole family was allowed to stay together! The seats were right at the back but they were center stage and we were able to escape quickly at the end of the show!

We had a dining reservation at Disney Springs in the evening. After much deliberation, we decided to use a DVC Tour to aid in our transfer to our final destination. We were picked up from Hollywood Studios and after our tour we were taken straight to Disney Springs in a minivan. No waiting. No having to go back to a resort first. Beauty! We actually wanted to go on a tour as we wanted to see the new DVC resort of Copper Creek. Free snacks, free bottles of water and free ice cream were an added bonus! As was meeting up with Elyse, the Cast Member who we bought our DVC membership from!

The very fun Sci Fi Dine-in

Our dining venue was Morimoto. It was advertised as "the modern finest in Pan-Asian cuisine" by Chef Morimoto of Iron Chef America. We were excited! The restaurant was BUSY. It was absolutely packed. Despite having a reservation, we had to wait about 15 minutes for our table. So how was the food you ask? We thought it was delicious. It was more inventive than we expected it to be. Having said that, we thought there were better Chinese Chinese food as well fusion Chinese food in Sydney. Perhaps this might be harsh but we expected an iron chef meal to be spectacular!
