Well, the time has finally come. I am on the eve of my next trip to WDW, and while I am in the midst of packing and getting things ready to go, I got to thinking about all of the things that I want to do while in the parks. Over the last couple of weeks, you all have given me great feedback on your must-do’s for Magic Kingdom and Epcot, so I thought that we would talk about my three must-do’s while in the Studios. I wonder if your must-do’s will match up with mine?
My morning at DHS cannot start without a trip to Starring Rolls Café. If you have heard us talking about it on Generation Mouse, then you know that Mark and I usually stop here to get one of their famous Butterfinger cupcakes. For me recently, the new favorite has been the red velvet cupcake. These cupcakes are so decadent and rich, I can pretty much guarantee that you will want to have something to drink on hand. But, while this is a usual stop for me, this is not my ultimate must-do.
My first stop is at Star Tours. This ride is awesome. I have experienced it both before it was redone and several times since. With over 150 different combinations of possible storylines, I can confidently say that you will not be bored. If you are a Star Wars fan, or even if you are not, I highly recommend this attraction, but I would advise you not to ride this on an empty stomach.
Moving on, I am headed to the Beauty and the Beast stage show. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie. I have loved it since I was a little girl. The show lasts for about thirty minutes. Personally, I think this show is wonderful. During the course of the show, the big numbers like “Belle” and “Be Our Guest” are performed. The whole story is not gone through in full detail, but in my opinion, it is like watching a mini Broadway show. I try my best to see this show often as it is so well done. If you have a little princess, or you just enjoy Beauty and the Beast, I highly recommend seeing this show!
And now it is time for the final must-do of the Studios. One show that I enjoy seeing before the park closes is Fantasmic. This show is filled with villains, dreams, fireworks, and even a parade on water. Fantasmic tells the story of how Mickey Mouse conquers the Disney villains in his nightmares. Personally, I love the technology used to tell the story with water. This is one nighttime show that you must see.
So, we have been through the Studios, and I have given you my three most important must-do’s. Did I leave any out? What are the things that you must do in the Studios? Feel free to let me know! I am always looking for new things to do while in the parks, so I can’t wait to find out what you think.
