A Day at MGM Studios

Today we went over to MGM Studios.  We didn't leave the hotel until about 9:30, so the park was pretty busy by the time we pulled into our parking spot.  It wasn't as crowded as the other parks had been, but we didn't even try to ride the big attractions.  We decided to wait until Monday when we have our Priority Seating reservations at the Brown Derby.

While we were at the park, we watched the Muppets 3-D, which is always amusing.  Then we took the Backlot Studio Tour, which I found more interesting this time around than last time, even though it was just a huge advertisement for Pearl Harbor.  We stopped for a snack at the ABC Commissary, which played non-stop commercials for bad ABC TV shows throughout the time we wolfed down our curry chicken and Cuban sandwich.

We strolled around the park, searching for Darkwing Duck, but sadly, we didn't find him today.  The Power Rangers were posing in the square, and they always draw a huge crowd.  I wanted a picture with the pink Power Ranger, but the line was too long. 

We have dinner reservations at the California Grill at the Contemporary, and they force you to dress up a little, so we stopped back at the hotel for wardrobe change.  Since "business attire" for me is jeans and t-shirts, I don't really have anything nice to wear, so I'm faking it with a pair of white cargo pants and a plaid button down shirt.  If they don't like it, there are only about a gazillion other places to eat.  Hopefully I'll be able to let you know how the food was.  If not, there will be an unexpected restaurant change.
