Originally, our last day of Disney magic was supposed to be at Animal Kingdom. But, after realizing the height requirements on the rides there did not work in our favor, we made a last minute switch and went to Hollywood Studios instead. There are not a lot of rides at Hollywood Studios, but it was an action packed day and a great ending to a really fabulous week.
Isaac, ready to blast-off!

Meeting Lightning McQueen. I couldn't get Isaac's attention through multiple shots. He just wanted to gaze at the car.
We took our almost 3 and 5 year olds on the Tower of Terror. It's true, we're that crazy/irresponsible. I fully anticipate a hefty therapy bill down the road as a result. Have you been on this ride? It's pretty intense. We told them it would be scary, but they were still unprepared. Caleb's reaction was one of supreme displeasure. He was quick to point out though that he didn't cry, he just whined a little. Isaac, on the other hand, whom we have discovered is a regular adrenaline junkie, would have been only too happy to go again. We didn't, however.
My four favorite Incredibles!
Caleb using the "Force" to fight Darth Vader. This was the highlight of his week. Shhh, don't tell him, but the birthday fairies might be bringing him his very own light saber once he gets back home.
The obligatory "we came, we saw, we conquered (insert name of Disney destination)" photo. And, indeed, we did.
We rode Toy Story Mania twice. And, considering it is the most popular ride in all 4 parks, apparently, that is something to be proud of. At one point, the wait was 70 minutes and that seemed just too long to wait. We were told by the usher, however, that 70 minutes was nothing and that at Christmastime last year, the wait was regularly 200+ minutes. It's a fun ride, but it is not worth standing in line for 4 hours. Note to self, never visit Disney at Christmas. Never.
Our last photo from a wonderful week. Finally, I need to record for future reference that Caleb and Isaac were exceptionally well behaved this week. It was a pleasure to be with them and made me excited for our future family adventures...whatever they may be.
