Carla's Make A Wish, Day 3

On Tuesday, we woke up early to meet whichever Nickelodeon character would be visiting the village.  Jimmy Neutron it was, so we got to meet Jimmy.  

 Here we are with Jimmy :)
 After meeting Jimmy, we went to the House of Hearts, to see about getting tickets to the Mid Evil Times dinner and theater.  It is a 48 hour wait, so we will go on Thursday.  After breakfast and pictures, Bobby, Carla and I went off to the Animal Kingdom to check things out.  Cody stayed at the villa to sleep, as he was feeling a little under the weather.  Once we got to the Animal Kingdom, we realized that the camera battery had died.  Must have taken too many pictures yesterday...and left the camera on way too many times.  Oh well.  We didn't stay long at the Animal Kingdom...as it was not our bag baby.  We ventured back to the car, and Carla crashed out.  After returning to the villa we found Cody feeling a bit better, and we all went swimming together.  After swimming, we took showers and made our way back to Disney World.  This time we tried our luck with the Disney Hollywood Studios.  Very cool.  And, because we were there in the evening, it was so much more comfortable to wander around in!
 Here, Cody and Carla pose, close to the entrance of Hollywood Studios.
 The lady at the gate told us that the Toy Story ride would be a good one, so we made our way to Pixar Studios to check it out.

We waited a VERY SHORT period of time and then went on one of the coolest rides!  It was a 3D shooting game...very cool indeed.  After the Toy Story ride we went on a Backlot ride/tour... also very cool.
 Here we are on the Backlot train...

 The water tower....
 Check out this cool backlot sequence of photos...




 While all that was going on the train was shaking from side to side, so you got the full effect.
 Herby, the love bug.

They build sets to look like cities....
 More family shots...

 Why Cody, what a large hat you have....


At the end of the night, we experienced what is called "Fantasmic"  which was, as the name suggests, a fantastic show which included Mickey, all the other characters, a light show, water show, firework display and a just plain awesome presentation of everything that is Disney.  Disney World really is the bomb. It doesn't seem as though they have left any thought, unthunk.  The park is immaculate, the people who work there amazing and everything they do is just out of this world!  We continue to be impressed.

Tomorrow, we are going to Sea World, and maybe the ocean...we'll see.

Love, Jen
