Favorite DHS Moment

In honor of International Hollywood Studios Awareness Week, I thought I'd post a quick point and shoot grab of one of my favorite DHS moments from my last trip. This was the second morning (Saturday) of the first Star Wars Weekend, the official Star Tours Opening Weekend. The official park opening time was 8am but when we arrived at 7:30, the park was already open. We headed straight to Toy Story Mania and found the area empty! We walked right onto the ride- they actually directed us through the Fastpass entrance; it was that empty. We rode once and when we arrived back at the loading area, there was no one in line and they let us stay on the ride! After our second ride, we disembarked and saw that the wait time was still 5 minutes. I grabbed this quick shot for evidence with my point and shoot and then we ran back in for ride #3. On this ride, we actually had a broken ride vehicle and weren't able to play- I took the time to take some pictures of the actual ride, something I've never done before because I'm always playing. My brother took the opportunity to study the ride, devising ways to beat me even more next time. When we arrived at the loading area, they knew that our vehicle was broken so let us ride again in a functional vehicle. So, by 8:30 am, we had ridden TSM 4 times! It was a fun morning :)
