It seems at this point photo taking started to go out of the window somewhat. Around midday we hopped on over to the other park to check off the few things on our list that we wanted to do, before our lunch/dinner (linner?) reservation at Restaurant des Stars at 2.30. We had hoped to eat around 4 but the only slots were either super early or a lot later and, as we 1) had other plans & 2) aren't the type who eat meals in the late evening, so we settled for that time.
As I think I probably mentioned in a previous post, I had just visited in the December but Laura hadn't been since a short school trips years ago, so I made a list of must-dos in the short time we had. Here's some of what we got up to in the Walt Disney Studios Park.
We didn't quite expect to do any character meets in WDS but we spotted Tigger and Eeyore with a tiny queue right by Art of Animation so we had to grab a sneeky hug. Then we popped round to check the times for Mickey and the Magician, squeezed in a go on Cars Quatre Roues Rallye (always a good laugh), had a good cry at the show and headed round to Ratatouille. Single rider on this ride is a 'God send'! A 5 minute wait as opposed to a 50+ min wait - yes please! We even ended up in the same rat which was an extra plus.
I finally had the time and guts to step up and ride Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop, which was okay. I love hights but I'm not the biggest fan of the dropping sensation but it was way better than Tower of Terror.
Something I haven't bothered with since 2010 is Armageddon, though seeing as we were early for our meal reservation and it was starting we thought what the heck and to tell you the truth I actually enjoyed it. With a bit of an expansion this could be super cool. After doing the WDS tour back in December it reiterates what this park is meant to be all about - the behind the scenes and making of the movies.
Once we came out of that attraction it was time to eat and be disappointed...so much so I apparently took no photos at all for a proper review...oops!
