Day 2 at Disney World was spent at Hollywood Studios. I have a few more pages to go, but I thought I would share what I have finished so far. These Disney Project Life scrapbooking pages include pictures from our lunch at the Sci-Fi Dine In, the Beauty and the Beast show, and several of the rides.
My two youngest girls had never been to a theme park before, if you can believe it. So we weren’t quite sure how they would do on roller coasters, which both my husband and I love. After braving Expedition Everest on day 1 and doing just fine, we figured they would both do fine on the Rock-n-Roller Coaster, even though it goes upside down. Both girls loved it and begged to go on it again.
Oh please tell me I am not the only one who takes pictures of funny t-shirts I see in the shops! The one good thing about Disney acquiring the Star Wars franchise is all the hilarious t-shirts we saw. Kevin did break down and buy one that had Darth Vader on a carousel. (As a side note, I am not sure how I feel about the idea of more Star Wars movies. I still shudder at the atrocity that was Jar Jar Binks!)
We went to the Sci-Fi Dine In for lunch. I highly recommend that restaurant if you visit Hollywood Studios with kids. It’s set up to look like a drive-in theater. You eat your meals in cars while campy sci-fi movies play on a huge movie screen in front of you. We let Miss A and Miss S sit in front, so they had a blast pretending they were driving us all over the place.
Tip: Remember to take pictures of some of the food from your more memorable meals. I took a picture of the drink my husband got at the Sci-Fi Dine In because it had a light up ice cube in it!
We are huge fans of the tv show Once Upon a Time so I had to snap a picture of the billboard hanging on one of the buildings. My husband always laughs when I take weird pictures, but it is all part of our story.
After lunch, we saw a couple of shows – Beauty and the Beast and the Extreme Stunt Show. We also rode Star Tours.
Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney movies of all time (surpassed only by Tangled). So we had to see the show at Disney World. I wasn’t disappointed.
Tip: Save any unused Fastpasses to include in your scrapbook. When we were there, the Fastpass machines at the popular rides were also spitting out bonus Fastpasses for less popular attractions. They weren’t actually necessary and didn’t get you any better seats or places in line. So I just kept them for my scrapbook instead of using them.
For this picture, I used photo editing software to combine 2 vertical pictures so I could print them as one 4×6 photo. I had taken another picture of the Star Tours sign and cut the logo out and adhered it to the picture of my daughters on the pod racer things,or whatever they are called. Sorry, I am not as big a Star Wars geek as my husband is. He would know what they are called, but I am pretty sure he wouldn’t appreciate me calling him at work to find out 🙂
With these pages, I kept things pretty simple, as I would love to be done with this project sometime this decade 🙂 I used a lot of Disney patterned paper and a few Cricut die cuts or punched shapes. The Mickey Ears diecut was from the Mickey Font Cricut Cartridge and the assorted sizes of stars were cut using the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge.
This is our third trip to Disney, so I have a lot of patterned paper that I picked up in the parks or at local scrapbook stores. I also have the Disney packs from Creative Memories. Remember those? Anyway, I just cut everything down to 3×4 or 4×6 cards to use. So that’s my Disney Project Life scrapbooking update for this week. So tell me… Is anyone else really wishing they would come out with an official Disney Project Life mini kit or core kit?
