Hollywood Studios & Trip Home: September 8, 2014

Monday, September 8, 2014 was our last day in Walt Disney World (at least for this trip!). We got up and finished packing and even did some last minute shopping at the gift shop at the resort. We then headed to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

After a brief stint of window shopping we found a spot and began waiting for Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome. During this event, there is a processional of skiers and characters down Hollywood Boulevard. They stop at the stage by the hat and Anna and Elsa leave their coach and come on stage. After receiving flowers from a cast member and addressing the crowd, they lead a sing a long of “Let It Go”.

We then walked to Wandering Oaken’s Frozen Funland which is where they have different photo ops, a snack bar and even an ice rink where you can rent skates to ice skate. They have a new ap they are using called Aurasma which is where you point your camera at a spot and it captures a digital scene that you can pose with. This is how you can see Sven! Also at different places in the park you can have your photo taken in front of a Frozen scenery.

I also, for the first time, had my picture taken with Phineas and Pherb. Next we had Fastpasses for “For the First Time In Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration”.

After the Frozen Sing-Along we used our Fastpasses for the Great Movie Ride. We really didn’t need them as the standby line was only 5 mins. We then had lunch at the ABC Commissary. I had to get the Olaf cupcake which was carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

It was then off to Star Tours with our Fastpass. The sequence was Darth Vader, Hoth, Princess Leia, & Naboo. We then did some window shopping but have to admit we were exhausted. It was going on 4 PM and our Magical Express pickup time was 5:30 PM, so we headed back to the resort. Our flight out was out 8:30 PM and we left on time but we didn’t get in to the airport until around 11 PM. We then had to go back to the hotel and get our car so we didn’t get home until after 1 AM which made for an exhausting day.
