Day 3 was just awesome. First of all I was just excited about Star Tours. There is something very special about being in a park on opening day of new attraction. There is such a feeling of excitement and anticipation! Then add that I was performing that day... I could hardly contain myself! so lets begin!
We heard that it was going to be incredibly packed even at park opening, so we tried to get there well before park opening. When we got there the park was already open.
no wait for Toy Story Mania, so we got right on that! then we got fastpasses for Star Tours!
waiting area set up for later in the day
then we went back to toy story!
then we had to meet the American Idol people at the park entrance so that they could make sure i was still going to be performing. After talking to them for a few minutes we went over to ToT and RRc
then we met some characters!
The park was starting to get pretty crazy, and I needed to try to find some way to get to the other side of the park, so we camped out between the Great Movie Ride and the stage where we were able to see all of the Star Wars Characters and George Lucas as they were coming on and off the stage!
then I walked in front of the stage so that I could watch the show. Once it was finished it was time for me to go backstage. Since it was o crazy I was the first person at the meeting location. I even beat the cast member in charge of us! but soon everyone was together and we made our way back. Once we were all settled I met with the vocal coach who helped me out with my song, and then I went into hair and makeup. Then it was finally time to perform!
waiting for the results...
and I won!!!
The show was so much fun, and both of the people I competed with were very talented. We had so much fun backstage! After the show I got to talk to see a bunch of my friends who I didn't think were going to be able to make it to the show! so that was pretty exciting. We were late for our lunch reservations at Sci-Fi, but there wasn't any problem getting in. After lunch we had a lot of time to kill before the finale show, so we took things slow and enjoyed all that the star wars weekend had to offer.
going over to the big Star Wars store we were able to see a different side of the Tower of Terror.
By then it was time for our fastpasses for Star Tours! The ride was great! I loved it!
Pretty soon it was time to go back to AIE to get ready for the finale. Once backstage we all just went through hair and makeup again then we just got to hang out in the air-conditioned room while witting on the nice couches. It was very nice after being in the terrible heat all day.
I was up first once again
apparently something wasn't working or they weren't ready, so I had an extremely long interview. The host even asked me to walk to the center and then come back for more interviewing. He said it was the longest interview ever on the show.
Once again everybody was extremely talented. It was a really good show! So it was time for the results..
they lined us all up and two people were asked to sit back down. Luckily I was not one of those two.
and then one more was asked to sit down..
then it was time to announce the winner. I didn't win.
Even though I lost, I was very excited that I got second place! I had so much fun performing! The rest of the trip I felt like a celebrity because people kept coming up to me to say that they voted for me or saw me perform. That was pretty cool.
As if we hadn't had a long enough day already, we went over to Epcot for extra magic hours. After that it was time to go to sleep.
Ok thats it for day 3! Check back soon for more!
