Hollywood Studios Part 2

After the parade we moved on to the American Idol Experience where we watched a hometown boy from New Orleans get ROBBED of his victory by some two-bit soccer mom.  It was sad.  He had charisma, but she had more family members in the audience; such is life.  Anyway, we enjoyed the show...

Raise the roof!
Then it was on to the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.  Damon and I saw this show on our honeymoon, and since Stella LOVES Indiana Jones, we knew she would enjoy it as much as we did in 2001...


All that action wore baby brother out!


This was a rainy day at Disney but we did not let this hamper our good time.  We saw the car stunt show, where the audience sits under an awning and out of the rain...
After a few rides, we went to an Italian restaurant for the meal portion of our Fantasmic dinner package.   Last time we were able to get great seats for Fantasmic with very little wait thanks to Mawmaw Shirley and her scooter, but since she sat out this trip we had to find another way to avoid the line.  Pawpaw and Watts were pretty much done by the time we made it to the restaurant...
The down side of the dinner package was that even though you pay a lot to get a front row seat, there is no way to buy good weather to go along with your good seat.  After waiting in the rain for about 30 minutes (others who were there may dispute that the wait was longer and soggier) they canceled the show and just popped some mediocre fireworks.  I am not sure if I would opt for the dinner package next time or not. The food was just average and the entertainment was obviously subject to cancellation.  Even though we were bummed to miss the show, we were able to smile for one last photo in the park that pretty much summed up our night...(That's Watts sleeping inside my raincoat.)
