Trip Report January 2016 – Day 4

Trip Report January 2016 – Day 3

Dreams do come true.  Day 3 in Hollywood Studios brought us back to our favorite ride, the Tower of Terror.  I haven’t ridden it since March 2014, which is far too long.  But I’m jumping ahead…

This morning was the most on time we’ve been in years.  In 17 minutes we drove from the Grand Floridian to Hollywood Studios, parked, unloaded the car and were on a tram.  First stop was Toy Story Midway Mania with a Fastpass.  We were through the ride quickly and stopped to see Star Wars Launch Bay.
