Disney Adventure 2014 -- Day 4

Our Day 4 adventure began at Hollywood Studios. We walked first to the Beauty and the Beast Show. We arrived around 10:00 and the weather was almost hot. I was glad we waited less than 10 minutes in the sun before we could enter the theater.

Here are a couple pictures.

From here we walked to the Voyage of the Little Mermaid.

Our next plan was American Idol. We had a Fast Pass for this attraction, so we entered the theater area early. We were part of group that shot a fan video for one of the contestants. Later we saw this video within the show, and we really looked quite good! With a Fast Pass we were able to sit in the second row and we ended right at center front. There was on open space in front of us for the camera men. I found it interesting to watch how they shoot the video for a show such as this and then to compare what I could see on the camera monitor with what is shown on the screens in the theater.

Here is my daughter on the "set." This is a fun show. The winner in the session we attended was a man who owns a recording studio in Nashville. He is an excellent vocalist.

After this we found a place to get a cold drink. Then we began to walk to the Great Movie Ride. We were surprised to meet Donald Duck in the street. He doesn't make a lot of appearances at Disney World.

We waited for what seemed like forever for the movie ride, standing in the group that would be the very next. I don't know what went wrong. The cast members kept peeking inside the ride area, but didn't tell us why we couldn't load. I think we stood there at least 15 minutes. I know the movie video that runs while one waits repeated itself three times!
After the movie ride we headed for the Indiana Jones Stunt Show.

Following this show we went to the bus and returned to our resort for awhile.

As it became dark we left for EPCOT. It was great time to see the fireworks. The temperature was about 80 degrees (26 C).  We didn't even have to put on our jackets the whole evening, including walking back to the bus later. What a change from the below zero temperatures in Minnesota.

Here's a bit of the EPCOT fireworks.
