For Christmas this year, Shannon’s parents opted to buy her (and her sister) an annual pass to the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida. Shannon, in turn, decided to buy one for me – too – so that I can tag along from time to time (schedule permitting.) I know this seems odd since we know so many folks in theme parks, but we decided that the advantage of going on a whim was worth it for one year.
Of course, when you get access to something of this nature you milk it for all it’s worth… amiright??!!
Yesterday we activated the passes at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and wandered between there and EPCOT. Starting at HS was great for me since I have the most memories there. It is the last “family vacation” I can remember going on before my parents divorced and I worked there from 1995 to 1997-ish.
Here’s me and Chewbacca in 1990:
SO – as we kick off our 2016 Adventure, I plan on making sure we see ALL THE RIDES and check out as many of the attractions as humanly possible. Here’s the list so far:
- HS: Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
- Ride #1: Jakku & The Asteroid Field
- HS: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Looks for future blog posts as we expand the list.
