Day 44 - Hollywood Studios

Wednesday (44) - We used the early admission again at Hollywood Studios and were in line at Rise of the Resistance at 8:29. It was still a 40 min wait but the line was moving almost continuously, which was nice. It is a very well done ride. You are surrounded with Star Wars “stuff”.

The effects are good. And everything feels huge. The ride vehicles are trackless and travel in pairs (not connected together) as you escape from a Star destroyer. 

We had breakfast at Ronto Roasters but one was fixated on a huge chocolate donut from Joffrey’s coffee stands. I’m told that their donuts are pretty tasty. 

We then went to the Indiana Jones stunt show. Of course, the highlight was the older Ural rig. The rest of the show was pretty good and it was nice to have a seat for 45 minutes. It may be another 16k step day with running from one side of the park to the other. Tim purchased the Genie+ add-on so we could make reservations on rides. Thank you!

We went on Smuggler’s Run where you “pilot” the Millennium Falcon. I had the up-down control and the controls were backwards. Push forward to go up, pull back to go down. Very confusing. At least to me. 

We then had lunch at the 50’s Prime Time Cafe. Traditional American fare where they harass you. No elbows on the table, finish your vegetables, etc. I had two appetizers instead of a meal. Fried cheese and a wedge salad. It was a good choice for me. 

After lunch, we slowed down as there wasn’t anything “scheduled” for a while. We spent most of the day in the Star Wars section of the park. They’ve done a fabulous job in this area.

At 7:50pm, we went on Rise of the Resistance again. It was even better the second time!

    1. Very full day. We were there for over 12 hours.

  2. Too crowded for my taste but I really like the Star Wars stuff!

    1. The Star Wars stuff was pretty cool. And being able to go on the Rise of the Resistance ride twice was a nice treat (thank you Tim!)
