Up early for another great day of adventure. We headed back to Hollywood Studios to finish up the rest of the park.
We then went over to discover what it would be like to have someone shrink you in size. We explored the backyard of Wayne Salenski in Honey I Shrunk the Kids. This was a fun jungle gym area where we climbed all over the grass and discovered humongous objects lost in the yard like Play-Doh, film canisters, yo-yos. I was able to successfully navigate my way through the spiderweb without getting caught. The bee almost stung me though. And ants are huge when your small.
We went on a Back Lot Tour where they showed us how water fight scenes are set up for filming. Fire the guns! Boom! Splash! Very interesting to see how this is done. Then we walked through a warehouse where several items that are used on sets were stored. I got to see the chicken house that was used in the filming of Hannah Montana! We boarded a train and took a trip to a mountain area where a semi truck is stuck in a desert area. Suddenly there is an earthquake, and rushing water, and then a huge fire explodes where you saw the semi truck actually catch fire. It was like being a part of the filming of this scene. It was pretty cool. Moving on we saw the Disney One Plane that Walt Disney rode when he was searcing for land to build his theme park. There were many other mobile props including Herbie the Love Bug and the space ship from Flight of the Navigator. Then they showed us how they use card board to help create back drops for city scenes and such. Kind of interesting.
We walked the streets and such enjoying the sets and shops. The It's a Wonderful Life christmas store was too cute. The ornaments were beautiful. Inspires me to want to create a Disney wonderland at home.
Of course we have to meet a few characters. Lightning McQueen and Mater were there reving up their engines with excitement to see us.
