The last park day is always bitter sweet, and even more so when it’s not your favorite park. I’m not sure what would be a better note to end on, your favorite park or your least favorite. It’s not that we dislike Hollywood Studios but it is not my favorite park. We got to the park for rope drop and made our way directly to Star Wars Smuggler’s Run. Everyone else had the same idea as us and the line was super long just minutes after the park opened. We left for Toy Story land after Smugglers Run, where we watched the Toy Soldiers drum show, rode Toy Story Mania and enjoyed the decor. 

Our next Lightning Lane is for Star Wars Rise of the Resistance, and we’re going to get lunch at Docking Bay 7 while we wait. I wanted to get the famous cocoa puff cold brew that you see online, and it took us a hot minute to find it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t great. Usually if I don’t like something Ben will finish it and in this case he didn’t even like it. Oga’s Cantina was on the bucket list of this trip, and we had a 1:00 reservation. I didn’t know when we made the reservation that the bar was a standing spot. We were super tired already and didn’t stay long so we wouldn’t end up leaning on the counters long. The Tower of Terror was the final ride of the day at Hollywood Studios, on the way to the boats to Epcot.

I still can’t believe we managed as much as we did, but we did a lap around the World Showcase before hopping over to Magic Kingdom on the Monorail. I had my first ever Dole Whip earlier this week and I thought it would be fitting to end the week with a Dole Whip too. We didn’t spend too much time at the Magic Kingdom as we wanted to try to get another reservation for Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. It was a beautiful evening hanging out at the Polynesian. We were seated at a communal table at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and had a great conversation with the couple next to us. We stayed quite a while, and left with just enough time to grab a pair of Adirondack chairs on the beach to watch the fireworks display. I couldn’t have picked a better way to end our Disney trip.
