Day 2 at Disney- Hollywood Studios/Epcot

 We started off day 2 at Hollywood Studios. We didn't have to get there super early, but I think we still left the hotel by 9am. We watched Disney Junior first and Sophie loved it. She got to see Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. She hadn't really watched the other shows that much, but has been a big fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates since we have been home.
 We watched The Little Mermaid show and the Beauty and The Beast musical. Sophie was really entertained by the Beauty and The Beast show, but got upset when Belle didn't have the same dress she had on the night before when we met her. Chad told her it was Belle's "shiny dress" since it was more gold than yellow.

 Sophie loved all the characters even if she hadn't really watched the show. We got to see Little Einsteins, Handy Manny, Mickey in his magician costume and Winnie the Pooh.

She was all about getting their autographs!

"Ta - Da"

Kids were not cooperating for this picture!

So the photographer suggested we get one by ourselves:)

 We went to Epcot by ferry after lunch. Chad had done his research and knew that Epcot was the place to see certain characters that weren't anywhere else in the parks. He had the schedules on his excel spreadsheet...and we got to see them all expect Jasmine b/c a huge storm came and we ended up in Morocco for over an hour in a little restaurant (luckily I enjoyed the food).

 Kisses from Alice in Wonderland. We taped the movie when we got back and she has loved watching "Alice in The Wonderland". It was the saddest thing when she started crying the first time she was watching it because "she can't get home".
Lipstick from Alice

 We were standing in line for Tinkerbell in "Pixie Hollow" when it came a big rain and they moved us inside. We still got to see her, but not as pretty of a background for the pictures.

Guess the person taking the picture didn't think the kids should be in the picture:)

 We went back to Hollywood Studios after the big storm. We knew we wanted to watch Fantasmic...a water show that we had seen at Disneyland and loved. It was still raining so after sitting for a little while we decided we would opt for the 10:30 show and try to get a few rides in. We rode the Toy Story ride and Sophie loved it. Chad got to ride Tower of Terror and Aerosmith's Rockin Rollercoaster (at least he did at some point in the day). We watched the last show of Fantasmic and Sophie was pretty scared during most of it. Lots of loud noises, fireworks and booms. I had forgotten that they focus on the Disney Villians for a big part of it and the loud, evil sounding music was just a little too much. She did like when the princesses came by on their boats and all the characters at the end, but overall I would say she did not care for Fantasmic at this age. Sutton slept through it all. It was a late night getting back to the hotel again.
