Our family trip to Orlando was all about theme parks. 2 days Disney, 2 days Universal Studios, and it’s still wasn’t enough. Disney World would probably take you a week to complete! Sound crazy? Not really. There is some sort of adrenaline rush that comes with theme parks - the amount of fun that you’re having will make you forget about your tired feet and sleeplessness.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of the 4 (Yes, there are 4!) theme parks in Disney World. The whole place is inspired by the heyday of Hollywood during the ’30s and ’40s.
But really, our main purpose was STAR WARS!
Eat me, you will! If I eat the Darth Vader cookie, will my breathing start sounding like his?
Compared to Magic Kingdom, there were more teenagers and adults in Hollywood Studios. And most of them were there to fawn over the Star Wars rides and characters!
How do I spell the sound that Chewbacca makes when he’s happy?
Boba Fett! /flails
I don’t know why but as a kid I’ve always had a crush on Boba Fett.
Every spring (May-June 2014), the theme park holds a special event called “Star Wars Weekends”. They feature the 501st legion, actual (and not just cosplayers) Star Wars actors’ appearances, Jedi Training Academy classes for little kids, and some ewoks running around the theme park.
There’s also a Jedi Training Academy that happens every hour throughout the whole year!
It was actual scorching hot during our visit, but the kids didn’t seem bothered by it at all, even with their thick robes. Would love my future kid to experience this one day! My boyfriend would totally spaz because he’s a huge Star Wars geek.
The smaller kids trained on stage, while the bigger kids were situated in front. They had to learn a few moves before their skills were tested.
The smaller kids got to battle Darth Vader, while the bigger kids got to spar with Darth Maul.
I want! They should make a similar event for adults too, huhu.
Jedi Duffy! Didn’t know bears were allowed to enroll in the Jedi Training Academy.
R2D2, what did they do to you? You’re my only hope…
Enjoyed our lunch while watching the Padawan Mind Challenge. The kids had to answer some questions about the Clone Wars. The questions were actually pretty difficult!
Start them young. These kids totally knew what they were talking about!
Woot! Stormtrooper cup holder!
(Moussy dress, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, Gold Dot wedges, one way headband) Hype this look on Lookbook here.
Dressed according to the theme park, lol. Really wanted to fit in the vintage exteriors!
Back details. A lot of people were dressed comfortably (t-shirt and shorts) so it was hard to take any good street style photos!
Beauty and the Beast: Live on Stage! Was disappointed at Gaston and human!Beast, huu /dreams shattered
Spent a good 5 minutes laughing at this with my mom and my brothers, haha
I’ve never seen Ratatouille! D:
There’s no place like home.
Temporarily transported back to San Francisco. Wasn’t I just here a few days before this photo was shot…
Before dinner, we went to EPCOT to catch the fireworks. Epcot, or Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, opened during the ’80s, and is somewhat like a world fair / world showcase.
The giant sphere at the entrance of the park is called Spaceship Earth.
How Walt Disney envisioned the future. So pretty.
Guess where we ended up staying…
Starts with the letter J. Ends with N.
There was some sort of exhibit inside one of the structures. It was quite old, and actually very funny. I have no idea if they were able to confirm if certain anime characters were really based on ancient Japanese myths.
There was also a Mitsukoshi at Epcot where you can find all sorts of Japanese goodies. You can’t miss this place if you love all things Japanese. I think they were also selling food and beauty products in there!
Remind me to get a PS Vita so I can play FFX/X-2 Remaster already.
Pikachu, I choose you!
Floating Torii in Miyajima? Nope, just EPCOT!
Highlight of the day. It always feels good to conclude a long day at the theme park with fireworks.
Wish we had an extra day just for EPCOT. You can go around the world in only a few hours. PRETTY MUCH MY DREAM! When people ask me what superpower I’d love to have, I always answer with teleportation so I can go anywhere in the world in a matter of seconds.
Spaceship Earth at night. Last Disney post before I start with Universal Studios and Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’m on a roll!
