Blast from the Past – Sci Fi Dine in at Hollywood Studios

By: Susie Swanson November 14, 2017 My family and I visited Disney in April 2017. We were only there for one day so we packed in as much as possible into that one day!

I wanted to have paper copies of the park maps, our daily schedule, fast passes, dining reservations and guide...
