I was very impressed that faux New York had a real Starbucks and I went there to drown my sorrows in a Cranberry Muffin and a Chai Tea Latte.
Side note: We visited this park on the day after the election.
We did perk up however, and enjoyed helping make a movie where we found our new family motto. And we're....Movin On! We also enjoyed a Simpsons ride that almost made me throw up, a Shrek show, the E.T. ride, and our favorite of all..... Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem!

This is where I embarrassed my entire family because I hadn't been taking full showers in our crappy little hotel. Gru has to do a body scan on the group of us about to ride and he shined a spotlight on ME and said that I hadn't showered. Mallory was mortified!!
We did have a very good meal in faux New York. Louie's Italian Restaurant doesn't look like much from the front. In fact, it looks like a tiny pizza joint on a real street in NYC. This is a counter service restaurant which means if you purchase the meal plan and/or a butterbeer mug, you can get your discounted meal/drinks here.
It is a really authentic looking place with excellent pizza! Alex gave it two thumbs up!
