ThemePark Christmas Florida Fun 2013!

The 2013 Christmas season has been so wonderful that I wanted to give you all a Photo Post instead of the normal blog post. This year I decided to take you on a journey around as much of Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Florida, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and many others to capture the amazing holiday happenings going on in the sunshine state.

Feel free to post any of your pictures or stories here.

Enjoy!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Reveals a Special Announcement!

The owls have been busy delivering the latest Wizarding World of Harry Potter news around the world. Earlier this week James Phelphs, one-half of the mischievous Weasley Twins, delivered an announcement to stir up the Potter community once more. The long awaited message was to inform Muggles of a webcast that will reveal exciting new information on the Diagon Alley expansion.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes comes to Tampa!

A small piece of New York City has landed in the center of the central Florida ThemePark world. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes premiered in Tampa this past Thursday to guests at the Straz Center. The guests were even treated to a grand red carpet event to welcome the lovely ladies, and Santa, as they were escorted down the aisle with Tampa Bay’s finest men in blue.

It’s Friday the 13th, a True Nightmare Before Christmas!

Happy Friday the 13th!

Although it’s the season to be jolly, we have to pause and take a break to recognize the Yuletide spooks of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, a perfect mix of ghastly haunts and merry quirks of the special holiday. I’m sure that no one puts Halloween and Christmas in the same sentence, but it takes special people like Burton and Danny Elfman (the film’s composer) to combine the two opposite holidays and make a classic masterpiece.

Theme Park Therapy: Holiday Hope at Florida Amusement Parks

As I sit here prepping for the holiday season ahead, I realize that each year goes by faster and faster. Sometimes the earlier portions of the year feel so far in the distant, like a thick foggy Florida morning. A week may every now and then seem so long ago.

The holiday season has officially arrived in central Florida and I was able to do a quick visit to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay as they prepared to set the stage for the spectacular Christmas Town celebration. An event that will combine 15,000 sq. ft. of real snow to play in, a deliciously prepared feast by Mrs. Claus, more lights than you can imagine, and oh yeah the thrilling rides that keep Hipsters returning to Busch Gardens. This event will run on select nights from November 29th until December 23rd of this year.

Cyber Monday Deals for ThemePark Travel!

Black Friday shopping is done and Small Business Saturday has passed. We have now reached Cyber Monday, a day where all of us computer geeks can get our shopping on without fighting the crazy holiday crowds. For this Hipster, a journey to someone’s ThemePark completes my holiday list, but this year I’m thinking about doing a full out vacation style trip.
