Day Two; Part Three

After riding Toy Story Midway Mania (three times... each time under 15 minute wait time-- viva la PLAN!) we headed over to The Tower of Terror and Rock-n-Roller Coaster. You can imagine which one Lindsay did not want to ride:
The ride with Terror in it's name. A 13 story free fall in an elevator. But I gave her no choice and pretty soon the three of us were screaming as we plummeted to the ground. Thankfully for us (and Disney's insurance company) we made it safely to the end of the ride. And wouldn't you know, Lindsay wanted to ride again! I just knew she'd like it!

Then off to Rock-n-Roller Coaster. Where we shot out of the gate and went upside down three times. Here's Lindsay (and her hair) after the thrill:
After riding that one twice too, we decided we needed a snack. The hostesses congratulated Lindsay, then asked why. The shirt did the answering for her and the sweet hostess gave Lindsay a free dessert!
Then it was time for a fun surprise for the girls:
Where we met Lotso Hug'n Bear (he had some GREAT character interaction) and took a short drawing class. They are really good teachers, as here are our products:
Not bad for three amateurs, eh?

We walked back towards Toy Story Mania which is on a street that is decorated with all sorts of characters from the movie. There are little green army men pulling up scrabble pieces and the barrel of monkeys creating all sorts of trouble:
(I just love the details Disney has!)

And found an umbrella attached to a lamp post (like from Singing in the Rain). We went to take a photo and wouldn't you know it? It starts to rain around the umbrella when you touch it! Another great detail!
Then we caught the tail end of the parade and saw some of our favorite Up characters:
Tomorrow I'll finally post photos of the room (and later, we tackle more of Epcot)!
