Monday, April 24th 


We slept in a bit before heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to use our FastPasses for Toy Story Midway Mania and Tower of Terror.

 Me, Barbie, Jill, Zach, and Trevor

We headed to Star Wars Launch Bay where we were met by my Disney Exchange Podcast co-host Dave. We got pictures with Chewie, BB-8, and the always terrifying Kylo Ren.

Please note Trevor isn’t in the photo with Kylo Ren. That’s because he showed Kylo his Rebel Alliance logo tattoo and was sent to stand alone off to the side!

We had a very good lunch at Brown Derby before heading over to Epcot the guys heading to the HP Lounge that is located above Mission Space courtesy of Zach and Trevor, while the girls went shopping.

We all met up again, and got a bunch of pictures of the Flower and Garden displays. Love the portrait mode on the iPhone 7!

At one point Barbie and I were having our picture taken by a PhotoPass photographer when Jill and Zach happened to start walking in front of the picture. They apologized, but I said, no, please keep going through, and asked the Cast Member to keep snapping as they did. He said in the years he’d been a PhotoPass photographer, he’d never had anyone request this.




We hopped a monorail over to the Ticket and Transportation Center, where we disembarked and took a walk over to the Polynesian.


While the girls went to the BouTiki shop and Trevor to Disney Springs, Dave, Zach and I went to the Tambu Lounge for cocktails.


Once the girls returned, we headed over to the Top of the World, a Disney Vacation Club lounge located at Bay Lake Towers, where we had a light dinner and enjoyed Wishes one last time, as it has been replaced by a new show, Happily Ever After.
