Day Four - MGM and Coconut Cheesecake!!

Sorry for the LATE post!! Another crazy and exciting day - this time at MGM Studios! Seth and I rode our two favorite rides:

Rockin' Roller Coaster is the park's MOST popular ride - Seth and I grabbed a couple of Fast Passes and then headed over to ride Tower of Terror (twice!). Both rides are definitely worth the visit to this park.

MGM is one of my favorite parks. It's not just because of the two rides above, but mostly because I LOVE MOVIES!! I'm an avid film buff, and this park hits the highlights from the past all the way up to today. It's also Star Wars Weekend, so we'll definitely be seeing a lot of the characters from those movies. The park is not very big, but there's a lot to do and see, plus there are quite a few "shows" here. I had the chance to see a friend of mine (Doug Teel) from college perform the "pre-show" to Beauty and the Beast. You can check out his group here.

We hit the condo a bit early to prepare for a "date night." Our friends from Illinois (Cary and Angie) joined us for a night out at the Cheesecake Factory. I LOVE THIS PLACE!! I love it because they must have the most menu selections than any other restaurant I've been to, and second, because they have great desserts!! I had a new one (for me at least!) tonight - Chocolate and Coconut Cream Cheesecake. It was DELICIOUS!! It had a chocolate brownie type bottom layer, followed by a layer of coconut cheesecake, followed by a layer of coconut custard with whipped cream on top!! UNBELIEVABLE!!

Now we're back at the condo with our bellies full. Tomorrow we'll meet Kayla early to get our tickets, and then we'll be switching condos for the rest of our stay in Orlando. After we get settled in to our new home we'll hit Animal Kingdom for the day. It should be a great day - until then!!

I guess all the coolest people come from Truman State University... I saw that one of the singers, Sammy started a "God's House Orlando" It seems pretty cool. Let me know if you check it when you are there.
