Today we had a reservation at the Sci Fi Diner in Hollywood Studios, so it seemed only fitting to spend the day there. I've heard a lot of people mention that they really don't like this park, but we both really enjoyed it. It was coming up to lunchtime when we arrived, so we decided to take a seat at Starring Rolls for a bite to eat. Honestly, the size of the sandwiches is colossal. In fact, I wasn't even sure how I was going to attempt to eat it (but I managed). The highlight though was definitely the Butterfinger cupcake. There are no words. Lewis had to help me eat it, but it was delicious. These were classed as a quick service credit on our dining plan, but it should have come to around $38.
The pace at Hollywood Studios is far more relaxed than the likes of Magic Kingdom, so we just took it at a nice speed, making sure to use our FastPasses along the way. Toy Story Mania is such a good ride, and definitely one you need a FastPass for. There's a reason why it's so popular though, it's so much fun!
One of my favourite things about Hollywood Studios was the Magic of Disney Animation class, where you're seated with a Disney artist and they show you how to draw a character. Our first attempt was Flynn Rider, and I just couldn't get his nose right (in fact I went and gave him two!). Lewis did a way better job at him than I did, but I was really impressed with my Winnie the Pooh.
If you're looking for a Disney restaurant with an atmosphere, I can totally recommend the Sci Fi Diner. You're sat in a little car for your meal, and it's themed like a drive in theater with short films playing on a big screen. We both had burgers for our mains, Oreo milkshakes (again, no words) and shared the cinnamon apple doughnuts with ice cream and caramel sauce for pud. It came to around $60 including the tip.
After the meal we headed to the stadium to get seated for Fantasmic! I do wish we'd booked a FastPass for this as we didn't have the greatest seat in the world, but it was either that or Toy Story Mania. It's such a good show though, with a combination of fireworks, fire, water and characters, and it's so entertaining!
Tomorrow's post will have photos from our full day in Magic Kingdom. We stayed until 1AM!
