Hooks/Korte Disney Vacation: Hollywood Studios & Epcot

This morning we began our day at Hollywood Studios. Our first activity was the Frozen Sing-Along show, but before we got to that we were able to sneak in a couple of character photos along the way. We saw the Disney, Jr Live show again this trip, the Beauty & the Beast Show, and we rode Toy Story Midway Mania (which Kate cried and had a fit the entire time on, but ultimately earned ice cream for being brave) and also the Great Movie Ride. Will and Nick also hit up the Tower of Terror and the Rockin' Rollercoaster, as well as Star Tours and the Indiana Jones Stunt Show.

 We headed to see what Characterpalooza was all about at 2:30, and we were not disappointed! Kate was able to meet Genie and Aladdin, Jasmine, Stitch, Tiana, Mulan, The Evil Queen, and Rafiki was there too!
Heather, the girls, and I had lunch at Hollywood & Vine, which is a character buffet. The girls got to met Sofia the First, Jake, Handy Manny, and Doc McStuffins while we ate. I thought the food was excellent, but Heather was not as impressed as she is a more picky eater than me. I would eat there again.
We also spent a good chunk of the day in search of penny press machines and Kate ended her day with about 27 new pennies. She's quite excited about her collection and even Olivia is getting into it this trip.
Once we finished up at Hollywood Studios, we took the boat over to Epcot to eat dinner and do just a little bit more before calling it a night. We had food in Mexico, and then we went to meet Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy before riding Spaceship Earth. After that, it was time to hop the monorail and head back to the resort.
Today's Character Count: Daisy Duck, Mater, Lightening McQueen, Genie, Aladdin, Jasmine, Tiana, Mulan, Stitch, Evil Queen, Handy Manny, Jake, Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy
