We ate in this restaurant on Tuesday in Disney's Hollywood Studios and it is quite possibly the coolest theme for a restaurant ever created. Done with the quality and attention to detail that only Disney can create. It really was like eating at a drive in theater, without the carbon monoxide.

 

Unlike in this photo, the actual place is much darker (to simulate an evening at the drive in), and features a "refreshment stand" behind the "vehicles" from which waitresses bring your food. It's... perfect.

While there, we were treated to several previews of old sci-fi B movies like Plan 9 From Outer Space, as well as the occasional Disney promo, and some cartoons like Tom & Jerry. Also present were many "Go get snacks" promos from the 50's.

I wanted to go to this one so bad. But my sister's father booked the 50's diner where it's like a family setting and all that. I had to drown the carrots in salt and pepper to eat them cause they'll pull their little "Oh eat your veggies" routine on me and the last thing I needed at the time was my anxiety going up to cause a panic attack due to public humiliation.

Now for an image dump from this year's vacation.



This was taken from the People Mover as it takes you from the Carousel of Progress to Monsters Laugh Floor. It's a great view.



As promised, an image of some of the swag we scored at Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Cool.



The kids versus Lego Hulk in the Lego Store at Downtown Disney.



A dragon made of Legos at Downtown Disney.



Here you get a box and stuff it full of Mr. Potato Head parts, all for one price. If you stuff the head in tightly sideways, you can get a lot more for your money. Thanks to the friendly cashier for that tip.



This is one of the cave exits on Tom Sawyer Island, my favorite place in the Magic Kingdom. Mainly because you can freely walk among the forested area with very few people around you. Unlike the madness and chaos of the rest of the park. It's like an oasis within a mad house. Within this exit, we hid a dollar bill on our previous visit last year.



And indeed, it was still there. I marked on it the year we hid it, and this year... in which we found it. Then I hid it cozily back in it's spot to be found by us again next year.

If someone does actually end up at Disney, here are directions to the dollar.

Enter the cave exit directly behind the arrival/departure building/dock on Tom Sawyer Island. There are beams that are supposed to look as though they are stabilizing the cave interior.

The first beam on the left (going in through the exit) that is completely hidden in darkness, not exposed to any sunlight, is the hiding place. It rests in a little crevice behind that beam, at about eye level for a 5'8" guy like myself.
