Park Hopping isn't for the weak, it can be very exhausting and leave your dogs barking.  After hopping the parks and trying to visit as many of the rides as one possibly can the day came to a conclusion.  A beautiful night helped to pause, take a breath and start a photo shoot in front of the classic and easily recognizable iconic Spaceship Earth.  It is so well lit up that it's easy to take a photogenic shot with it.  Epcot has so much to offer but if you can't do any more rides and waiting in lines after running through all of the other parks earlier in the day than go to grab a seat around the World Showcase Lagoon and enjoy the IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

Hollywood Studios

Taking another visit to the Orlando area, the Traveling Mushroom grabbed a Park Hopper pass and started out at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  This Park will always be remembered as MGM studios because growing up that's what it was called.  This theme park is the 2nd of four Disney Resort theme parks the Traveling Mushroom has visited and it was a great time.  Riding the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is an amazingly entertaining and exciting roller coaster experience and is worth the average wait of about an 45-60 minutes.  Classic rides like the newly renovated Star Tours and the Muppet's 3-D are also a must experience.  My favorite is the well known and visible from almost anywhere in the park is the Tower of Terror.  The entire experience including the wait in line, introduction, seating, cast members, the travel to the elevator drop position is all apart of the show.

A must see and worth the wait as well is the Extreme Stunt Show and has some very impressive stunts on a minimal stage in front of a live audience.
