A November Day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Because I’m in a Disney mood today (but let’s face it, when am I not in a Disney mood though) it seems like a good time to detail another day of my November Disney trip. It was me, my sister, my mom, and my grandmother, who we call Grandy. One of my favorite parts of…
