Tuesday 2nd December
Ok so today we were supposed to be going over to Hollywood studios after lunchtime and doing the park in the afternoon and staying until night to see Osbourne Lights and Fantasmic!
We got up in the morning I think it was around 7.30 and again we just took our time getting ready. It was a lovely sunny day but it was still a tad chilly out! We still had so much to see and everyone was desperate to get back to the parks so our late start ended up being around 10.30!
Off we trotted back to Hollywood Studios! We parked up in Music and jumped onto a tram taking us over to the entrance.
First thing on the agenda was the Indiana Jones show! The boys were desperate to see this so we scooted on over as it was due to start at 11.30.
We got quite good seats down the front , the casting director was then looking for volunteers to help out as “extras” Paddy had his hand up and we were all pointing in his direction but unfortunately he didn’t get picked! The show eventually began!
We all enjoyed this loads! Was really well done!
When we had finished we RAN all the way to the Jedi Training Academy, the boys were desperate to get picked! We explained it might not happen but they were just so excited about it! They had on their Jedi T-shirts I had made them today (although I don’t have any pics of them wearing those t-shirts as it was pretty cold that day and they had their jumpers on most of the time).
We were stood there for about 30mins before it started and right at the front. The boys were getting more and more excited as the music came on and got louder. Then these really pushy parents decided to push their kids in front of my boys! I’m really sorry but this was one of those moments that really got my back up! If they were desperate for their kids to be picked then they should be there early like everyone else!
The Jedi Master came out and the crowd erupted! They boys were about wetting themselves with excitement!LOL
Then you guessed yet more parents started pushing and shoving kids in front of my lot! I was getting soo annoyed by this point! My boys had their hands up and were jumping up and down begging to be picked and low and behold every one of the kids that had been pushed in front of us got picked!
This resulted in Kieran getting extremely upset and running away from us! It was a rather scary moment as it was absolutely heaving that day and we panicked a bit when we couldn’t see where he had went! We eventually found him hiding over by the star wars shop!
I know there is no guarantee that your kids are going to get picked I totally get that, and I did explain that it might not happen to the kids but having ADHD and being Autistic they find these things difficult to deal with at times and having spent such a long time ( for my kids) waiting very patiently for it to begin and then having other kids push in front of them as it starts is quite hard for anyone to get to grips with let alone kids with additional needs. So that kind of spoiled things slightly.
Anyway once we managed to calm them down a bit we managed to convince them to head over to the Lights Motor Action show.
As we walked over Aaron had fell asleep, we asked a cast member if there was any way of bringing the buggy in with us as he had fell asleep but it was a big NO! So Paddy took the boys and Mum and I took a wander to see what was in the streets of America area!
We spotted the Power Rangers but it was too late for the boys as they were just finishing up and wouldn’t be coming back until much later- we never told them we saw them mind you! The way my guys were loving Autograph hunting they would have been devastated to have missed out!LOL
We had a good look in the shop heading over towards Backlot tour – I can’t remember what it was called then we had a water and a seat by the little fountain while Mum phoned home.
The boys called to say they were making their way out! They really enjoyed it , they didn’t get many photos though:
