Stress? What Stress? We’re Going to Disney!

by Adrienne on July 25, 2014

Has this been a crazy busy summer for anyone else?  I’m finding that I barely have time to catch up on email, much less relax at all.  So I think it is time reiterate how to bring a touch of the Disney feeling home. 

 Look at your pictures or videos from your past trips.  It’s even better if you can look at those pictures with friends or family, especially if they went with you or are planning to join you in an upcoming trip.  You can really reminisce about the good times and memories you made during your break from reality.

If you are anything like me, you probably are already on social media so why not visit a few some Disney fan pages on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest or the Disney Parks Blog to see what is new.   And make sure to follow your favorites (especially The Affordable Mouse) to get involved in unique conversations.  There are always websites to keep you updated on current events at WDW.  My particular favorites are www.allears.net  and www.mouseowners.com.  On Mouseowners, you can read other guests’ trip reports from their vacations, which is always a fun way to spend anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.  Or subscribe to follow a Disney Travel Agent (The Affordable Mouse is a great option) to receive weekly newsletters and updates.

Now for the ultimate solution which I think is the absolute best way to combat stress….start planning your next vacation!  Nothing brought a smile to my face more than figuring out that Kenny and I both couldn’t really wait unit October 2015 for our next vacation.  An extra bonus of planning a vacation is that I get to check out restaurants from the comfort of my couch (bonus way to daydream).  I absolutely love reading WDW menus!  It makes me excited to read the menu changes to see what restaurants I want to try on each trip and decide which of our old favorites we need to revisit. 

Well, off to vacation planning I go…or at least I can dream!  Have a Magical Day!

Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World is chock full of excitement! Thrill seekers and coaster lovers over 48 inches tall will definitely get their fix as they roll away in the dark on a stretch limo on this attraction.  It is located at the end of Sunset Boulevard near the Tower of Terror. You can’t miss the 40 foot electric guitar that adorns the front of the attraction!

rock n roller coaster wdw newsAs with all Disney attractions, there is a story and a theme!  So the story goes – You’re touring the G-Force recording studio where the band, Aerosmith is finishing a recording session. The band’s manager tells the group that they are late for a concert and the band invites you to accompany them. The fun begins when you hop into a stretch limo and hang on as you blast off, from 0-60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds! As you speed through night scenes of Hollywood, you will experience three different inversions. There are 2 loops and a corkscrew that will blow you away!

One of the best parts of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is the soundtrack. Your stretch limo is outfitted with 125-speaker, 24 sub-woofer, 32,000 watt audio system.  Since each limo plays different Aerosmith songs, your trip will be different each time you ride! Aerosmith songs may include:

  • “Walk This Way”
  • “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)”
  • “Sweet Emotion”
  • “Back in the Saddle”

Additionally, the classic tune “Love in an Elevator” has been customized to “Love in a Roller Coaster” specifically for this attraction.

Be sure to include Rock ‘n’ Roller Coasteron your next visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a rocking good time!
