Time to Prove Your Allegiance to the Autobots

Orlando has been officially Tranformatized (my own word, lol) and if you were anywhere near Universal Studios you would have felt the excitement roaring in the air. In true Universal style the grand opening show was spectacular.

2013 Resolution #3: Adventures in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

The recent released news regarding the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion gave me the urge to head over to Universal’s Island of Adventures to complete another New Year’s Resolution. Writing in Hogsmeade was very inspiring. After all, the creator of this great world inspired me to began writing my own novel.

Refreshing Margarita

Happy Hour anyone??? This simple Margarita from Margaritaville in Universal’s City Walk can be not only refreshing but also a cheap way to end a hot summer ThemePark day at Islands of Adventure or Universal Studios.

2013 Resolution #2: EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival

I had the pleasure of attending the 2013 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, which actually turned out to be one of my best times at the park. The cooler temperature was balanced by the soft kisses of the Florida sun on my skin. Immediately upon entering EPCOT I was greeted by the beloved faces of the Disney brand enjoying they’re rendition of a colorful springtime bar-b-que.

Ahhh…what a refreshing way to end the day ThemePark hopping in Orlando. Tucked away in the Peabody Hotel is a lush lounge called The Rocks that will make you forget about the tourist mania just outside on International Drive. My drink of choice was the Ultimate Dill Martini, which blended Plymouth Gin, St. German Elderflower Liqueur, Fresh Cucumber, and dill into a perfected, heavenly adventure on my palate. On certain evenings you may catch the beautiful sounds of the house band adding to the quaint, upscale ambiance.

2013 Resolution #1: My American Idol Experience

It was a Saturday morning on a clear and beautiful February day here in Florida. I walked up to this bright blue and silver building in Hollywood Studios with one goal in mind….to finally immerse myself in the American Idol experience.

2013 ThemePark Resolutions

It is tradition for everyone out there to start making weight loss goals, money changes, and other possible abandoned promises of self improvement for the start of a new year.

I figured I’d go ahead and join this tradition, some what, by making my own set of New Year’s resolutions that will force me to do the things I’ve been putting off at the Theme Parks.

Twelve months, twelve goals! I will be reporting back with my unforgettable memories and picturesque photos to accompany them throughout the year.

Christmas in Central Florida 2012

I love, love, love this time of the year! We may not have snow like our northern pals, but we do have our on way of celebrating here in Florida. If we’re fortunate enough the temperature may drop into the 50s, maybe even the upper 40s, to give us that tropical Christmas weather that we love.

Manhattan Cocktail

This is absolutely a wonderful way to end an exhausting day at the Disney parks. A stiff barrel aged Manhattan  and a refreshing Gin-tle Breeze at Todd English’s BlueZoo Restaurant in the Swan and Dolphin Hotel. The hippest way to add an adult flavor to ThemePark fun!
