MGM Hollywood Studios, Disney World Orlando

Dear friends.......finally i've got time to sit down and continue my traveling blog. This will be my 1st post in the year of 2011....yeay! I just wanna greet all the readers a great new year ahead...I believe this year will be the greatest year yet for both of us :)

Well......i will continue my journey on MGM Hollywood Studios @ Disney World Orlando. It was the 3rd themepark that we went on Disney World. This themepark was one of the most anticipated one in my trip...coz it has lots of World-class attractions and rides. It's such a dream come true that I will be able to play around MGM Hollywood Studios...it has been my childhood dream to be in Disney World!! We really had fun and took lots of pics too...one of the famous spot was a giant Mickey's Sorcerer Hat. It is lighted during the night and it was magical! There are lots of interesting rides in MGM but we couldn't covered all...but we had planned so well and we did ride all the major high ratings rides including Rock n' Rollercoaster by Aerosmith *my fav* and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror yeay!

We started our day with Star Tour ride...we went in coz the queue was only 15mins. The ride was based on George Lucas' Star Wars movie and in this simulation rides, Captain EO brought us unto the outer space. Although it was my 4th times on Star Tours....it was still fun :) Subsequently during day time we went to see 'Lights, motors, Actions' stunt show. It was drizzling a lil' bit....but it didn't cancel the show...phew :) The show was about how hollywood movies does car stunt show & effects...it ended with fire, explosions and cheering from the crowds. It was such an awesome show!

Well....after all other rides.....i'm gonna share the more memorable ones....Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. In this ride....we had to go into old hollywood hotel. It was so creepy and the hotel keepers acted so well...they sounded so scary, they made u feel that u going to face sumthing really scary ahead. I have to admit that when it comes to this...Disney's staff are just way to awesome. They are really professional, e.g. in a scary rides....they make sure that u will feel scare as hell...in jolly rides...well they will smile to u from ear to ear :) Anyway...back to the rides. So after the very long creepy queue at lobby and boiler room (coz we've gotta listen to all the screaming from the elevator while queuing)...the hotel keeper bought us into the smaller room. In the room...there was a small TV telling u about the history of that old creepy hotel and saying that we are going into a place where there will be no turning back. Well...we were brought into a big old elevator where we are all to be seated and strapped in. Finally after all the waiting.....we were brought into a "Twilight Zone" (you will be dropped from 199 feet tall). Well...they didn't have fixed numbers of how many time the drop would be. The pattern of dropping was randomly done...that made the whole excitement coz u couldn't predict what was happening. It was a lil' bit scary at 1st...but after the 1st drop...then u gonna love it :) coz the door of elevator gonna open and u will see the surrounding and it's gonna drop u again. hehe...fun fun fun.

Next roll n' rollercoaster had the longest queue ever in MGM. We queued up for almost 2h but it's worth it. It was my fav rides so far in Disney world coz u will be blasted with Aerosmith's rock and roll music while u are riding the coaster. Both of us were so thrilled coz during the queue, we saw how the riders screamed while the train 1st launched into the dark tunnel and disappeared. It launched from 0-60 mile per hour in 2.8 seconds and it was the most intense feeling i had on that day (more intense than the tower terror i can say). The ride was simply awesome and breath taking :) I dun mind to do it again....but the queue were horribly so long....and we gotta catch up for the Fantasmic show.

Fantasmic! is featuring fireworks, water effects, fountains, laser effects, etc of Disney character and animations. We went there 1h before the show started....and it was so crowded already! After we went in...we got center seat and almost a perfect spot for both of us. It was quite easy coz we were young & energetic enuf to squeeze thru and grabbed the seats b4 everyone else hehe. The most memorable scene when Mickey had to defeat the "Maleficent" Dragon. The sea of fire was blown up by the dragon and Mickey the sorcerer tried everything he could to set off the fire. Fantasmic! ended up with fireworks and with one message that dreams do come true in life. There will be enemies come in a way...but in the end, u just have to believe in ur heart that the nightmare soon will go away and the brighter day will come very soon.

It was such a memorable day and how i wish that i would be able to go back to MGM Hollywood Studios :)
