Sunday, August 3 we set out for an afternoon visit to Hollywood Studios that would include a visit to Character Palooza, rides on Rock N Roller Coaster, Tower of Terror and Star Tours, a bit to eat at the ABC Commissary and the Frozen Fireworks with a peanut butter and jelly shake.
We arrived around 5:30pm and noticed that the parking lot looked kind of empty. I’ve learned that a lot of Georgia schools are going back into session beginning today. My kids start back with the local schools on August 18th, so that will be a key week for the crowds to really begin dying off and continue to it’s lowest levels around Labor Day.
We up to the log jam that is the Coolest Summer Ever Dance Party in front of the hat. They set up the ropes for the Fireworks viewing area really early, so it’s difficult to maneuver this area while the characters are out. The characters that usually appear are Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Chip and Dale. They appear at 5:30, 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 nightly until September 1. The characters and costumes are exactly the same as the Rock Your Summer Side Dance Party version that changed names quickly.
They started handing out different Olafs recently. This rendition has an umbrella. It’s because the other version made a terrible fan. I think he should have had a cloud over his head. What do you think?
