What I’m Reading: Goosebumps One Day at Horrorland

Many of you may not know it (or you probably can guess), but I’m a big kid at heart. It shouldn’t be a surprise that at times I like to delve into some of my favorite book series I’d enjoyed as a child (and still do).

I am reading Goosebumps One Day at Horrorland by R. L. Stine. This was my favorite book of the horror, fantasy series because it not only kept the spooky, quirky fireside story traditions; it combined this type of story telling with my favorite passion…Theme Parks!

Told in true R. L. Stine fashion, the Morris family while on their way to Zoo Gardens, gets lost and stumbles upon Horrorland. This park seems perfect with no lines, no crowd, and free admission until they’re greeted by the monstrous staff (known as Horrors) and the iffy attractions leading to an unpleasant amusement park experience.

Instead of a picturesque day like one found at Walt Disney World, Horrorland is a demented world more like a terrifying evening at Halloween Horror Nights. So be ready for casket water rides, a television show where there are no mortal winners, and many more ghoulish attractions.

Jedi Knight and TIE-Fighter Pilot D-Tech Me Coming to Star Wars Weekends

The 2015 Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is about to get an amazingly, new collectible addition (and you can say experience). Two new D-Tech Me figurines – a Jedi Knight and a TIE-Fighter pilot will premier during the special event.

Star Wars – D-Tech Me is a 10-minute experience that uses the world’s highest-resolution, single-shot 3D face scanner which is  later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figurine. You can find this new experience inside Darth’s Mall, near Streets of America across from Studio Catering Company.
