    I'm also a big fan of Olaf, like your mom! Your pictures came out great!

    I love your selfie with your dad on TSMM!

    Your Olaf photos are so sweet. Love that snowman too!

    Ugh forever bitter about The Great Movie Ride being closed down for a runaway mine train that has NOTHING TO DO WITH HOLLYWOOD.

    Anyways, I need to go back to see Rey in the new Star Wars show because QUEEN.

    Bless the Cream Cheese Pretzel, such an underrated snack.

    Cute meet with Olaf!



    Are these new? I haven't seen them before.

    I don't think I have had a pretzel at Disney. Is that wrong?

    Hi!! Thanks for chiming in, glad to have you here! :)

    I haven't seen them done anywhere else but I hope they continue to add them to locations! I too am looking forward to the new ride, hopefully it will end up being a good enough replacement for GMR!

    He is pretty big! But he's fun and he does give warm hugs ;)

    Thanks!

    Chewie was definitely a ham!

    It's one of my fave Disney snacks, I always try to have one!

    He's just the best! It was a fun meet :)

    Aw thanks! He does love a good selfie :rotfl:

    Thank you! He's the best!

    Haha I am staying positive that the new ride will be good :)

    She is pretty awesome. Later on we saw her stop and hug a little girl that was dressed like her- ugh so cute!

    Right?? It's SO good!

    Thank you!

    RIP Indeed :(

    Disney pretzels are so good, aren't they?!

    Thanks!

    I think they are! I certainly don't remember ever seeing them!

    Yes. Very Wrong. You must fix it immediately!! :rotfl2:

    I love cream cheese pretzels, too! Haven't had one in a couple years though - gonna add that to my list for May ;)

    Excited to see more Star Wars in your next post :goodvibes

    It is sad! But I hope the new ride is fun!

    We never saw the actual stage show so it was cool to still get to see the characters!

    Yes you must! Such a good snack!

    Coming up shortly! ;)

    Day 4, October 24, 2017 - The Force is Strong With This One

    Next we headed over to the Launch Bay. We had a wookie to meet!

    We stopped in the gift shop outside and saw these cuties! I wanted to buy one or both of them but refrained :upsidedow

    [​IMG]

    I think we waited about 25 minutes to meet Chewie. We all were obviously Chewbacca lovers between my parents shirts and the little stuffed animal I brought with me :goodvibes

    Continuing the theme, we headed over to use our FP for Star Tours! I wrote down that we got a wookie scene..how fitting!

    After that we decided to head to the Muppets but got distracted when we saw Baseline Tap House! I knew it was something my parents would enjoy so I encouraged us to stop. We were able to find a table outside and they ended up getting a beer flight which they really enjoyed! I tried the black cherry soda which was super delicious!

    Little Chewie wanted to get in on the fun too ;) (@paradesintherain maybe your Porg and my Chewie can be friends!)

    Up next...More attractions and more Photopass ;)

    Yes, I hope so too. ::yes::

    Yay!!! As you know from my TR title, I LOVE Chewy too!

    I bet you made Chewy's day!!! I just bought a Chewy and Han "Besties" t-shirt last night for my May trip... and who are we kidding, just regular everyday wear, too! :laughing:

    Very fitting! I haven't ridden Star Tours in over 10 years. I really want to this next trip, I handled ToT last trip with relative ease with my medication for motion sickness, maybe I'll brave Star Tours this time around. :thumbsup2

    My girls grabbed the Mickey bar one in September and we looked for the Dole Whip one in Februrary with no luck. Oh well. I love them, they are so cute!

    I wanted to try Baseline but it just didn't work out for us. I bet it will be super busy once star wars land opens up!

    I almost brought these little guys home with me, too! Especially the dole whip.

    Wow! This is a great photo! Chewie must have loved all the attention!

    Haha your little Chewie is adorable. :)

    OMG I WANTS A CUTE DOLE WHIP/CITRUS SWIRL PLUSH. I WANTS IT.

    Aaaahhh, CHEWIE. He's so cute and all the pics you got are so cute. I miss his hugs.

    You can get beer in Studios? *makes note in big bold letters*

    I loved this update! Your meet with Chewie is awesome! Love the smile on your face as you are hugging him. I don't do many character meets, especially with family, but I made Mark join me to meet my favorite wookie during our anniversary trip.

    Those snack plushies are adorable. Two of my favorite snacks!

    Speaking of favorite snacks... Beer flight? I haven't really heard of this Baseline Tap place, but duly noted!

    :drinking1

    Your pictures with Chewy are adorable! I can't wait to try Baseline Taphouse on our next trip! Did they have any food there or just drinks?

    Chewy is the best! We had a great meet with him! Omg that shirt sounds adorable!!

    I hope you get back on Star Tours this next trip!

    Your girls and I seem to have similar taste in plush toys :rotfl2:

    It was SO quiet back there! But you're right, I bet it will be more popular once Star Wars Land arrives!

    Weren't they so cute?!?

    Thank you! He was a great meet!

    I love my little Chewie, he talks too!

    They are SO cute, I don't know why I didn't buy one :sad2:

    Thanks! We loved meeting him!

    YES! :thumbsup2

    Thank you! I was very much looking forward to that hug!

    Two of my favorite snacks too!

    I believe Baseline had just opened up about a month or so prior to our trip. It's a nice little addition to the park and they have both indoor and outdoor seating!

    Thank you! Baseline was really nice! They had a couple of small snack items on the menu. I remember a pretzel and a meat/cheese plate, I'm not sure if there was anything else. They could have added stuff since then though!

    Day 4, October 24, 2017 - Did you say "Cheap 3D Tricks"?

    After our little break then we really did head over to see MuppetVision!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Beaker is probably my favorite muppet :)

    [​IMG]

    We then headed over to Sunset Boulevard. Our first stop was to see if Characterpalooza was happening. We waited (along with a bunch of other people), but it never happened :(

    After that, it was time to use our FP for ToT!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Afterwards, we waited to see if set #2 was going to happen for characterpalooza but again no luck! Either it didn't happen that day or it happened at another area of the park. Kind of a bummer but oh well!

    We then stopped for multiple PP pics.

    After this I stopped at guest services. Tower of Terror had been down a lot of the day (but was obviously back up by the time we went to ride with our FP). However, this caused the FP to become an anytime FP in my account and even after I used it, the system wasn't recognizing that I used all 3 of my FPs. So I stopped to ask about it at guest services and mentioned I was hoping to get a 4th FP for Toy Story Mania. The CM just ended up giving me another anytime FP into my account so I could use it later on to ride which was awesome!

    We had some time before our dinner reservation, so we stopped for a few more PP pics.

    Animal is mine!

    Too bad you weren't able to find a Character-palooza that morning.

    I'm glad you were able to ride ToT in a small window where it was operating. And get a bonus FP! YAY!

    More awesome Photopass pictures!

    :goodvibes

    That stinks you weren't able to catch Characterpalooza. It's very finnicky and hard to catch especially since they like to move it around so they don't get that huge mob that happens when everyone knows when and where it is happening (since it's technically supposed to be a surprise).

    I love all your PP photos! You all looked like you were having the best time with the photographers and magic shots. :goodvibes

    Did your parents change shirts?

    We love Chewbacca, he is a great hugger! We have caught the character palooza a couple times there, it was fun! Sorry they didn’t have it that day. Your ToT pictures are fun! Nice to get the anytime FP for TSMM such a fun ride.
