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!

All aboard!

SevenDwarfsMineTrainConstruction

The Seven Dwarfs mine train is taking its first, of many, test rides in New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. Now we can truly start to get excited about this epic attraction that will be opening in the early part of 2014.

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.

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.

Disney’s Haunted Mansion Fandom

Happy Halloween!

Disney’s Haunted Mansion is one of the top attractions among ThemeParkHipsters, so much so that there is a large fandom that encompasses fan fiction, meetups, collectibles, comics, and numerous pop culture mentions around the world! I’ve always enjoyed the ride, but I could never quite ride it alone (no surprise there).

TPH’s 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery Quest 2013

Dessert overload with sweetness swirling throughout my palate, sugarplums dancing on my plates, and divine nectar of the vine to quench my thirst were all a part of my dining experience during my 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery adventure at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival.

HIPSTER Photo of the Week

Autumn at the Magic Kingdom

Autumn in central Florida is in full swing. There are never enough pumpkin patches, stunning leaf color transformations, and spooky attractions at the Theme Parks. The weather will also be much cooler…well at least for us Floridians…this up coming week. I am super excited about that.

What are you favorite fall activities to do at the amusement parks in Florida?

Tasting My Way Around the World at EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival

What do you call an experience globetrotting the many cuisines of multiple countries in one day??? I call it Tasting My Way Around the World at EPCOT! This year’s event was really peaceful and enjoyable. I guess it was due to the fact that I’d tasted most of the items from previous years so this time I was able to focus solely on trying new dishes, new cocktails, and new seminars.
