ESPN the Weekend: Hollywood Studios

While I was going through the photos on my memory card, I realized I never did a Saturday recap from our Orlando trip. Let’s fix that RIGHT NOW!

After running the Champion 5k and showering, we headed back to Hollywood Studios for the day.

The first hour and fifteen minutes of our day were spent in line for Toy Story Mania. Thank God for cameras to keep us occupied.

We decided that the winner of the game would buy the first round of beers.

I *ahem* was Player 1. Pay up Carly!!

We wandered around the park for a bit enjoying our beverages, and then made our way to our 1pm lunch reservations at Mama Melrose’s.

The food was delicious, as usual, and the service was sub-par, as usual.

Carly marked up the wall inside with our names:

And we jumped at the opportunity to get the perfect “We Run for Wine” photo:

While our lunch settled we explored the ESPN Sports Zone, beer in hand of course…

On our way out of the park, we caught the end of a parade:

Back to the hotel we went to have some afternoon cocktails and get ready for an evening of dancing. We were off to the Boardwalk!

We attempted to have dinner at a couple restaurants, but a 90 minute wait wasn’t exactly what we had in mind. We lowered our standards, and saved a few bucks here:

Enter Fried Food Heaven:

Not exactly what we had in mind for dinner, but it got the job done!

Next up: Jelly Rolls for some cocktails and to scream Journey & Billy Joel at the top of our lungs.

And as every great night should end, we hit the dance floor at Atlantic Dance Hall.
