Christmas at Ft. Wilderness Lodge

Free Christmas at Disney World

Happy Holidays Hipsters!

There’s nothing like the holiday season. Rather it’s sitting cozily next to a fireplace with family or feeling the spirit of Christmas while walking around the Walt Disney World onsite hotels. Although I love both activities, I think you’d probably guess that the latter has become my new holiday tradition. A few years ago I discovered this new way of enjoying a free Christmas at Disney World. When I’d set out to do a post to help my fellow ThemeParkHipsters save on theme park holiday fun, I had no idea I’d discover how wonderful AND free a Disney holiday experience could be.

Goodbye Maelstrom

In case you are not aware the last boat ride of Maelstrom into the wintery mysteries of Norway will take place this Sunday, October 5, 2014. The announcement came as a shocker to most Epcot fans; however, the rumor of its Frozen-themed replacement surfaced on the Internet a few months ago and I can admit that I did not believe it. I swore my friends up and down that there was absolutely NO WAY Disney would close such a classic and replace it with, what I felt was, a temporary cultural fad.

Walt Disney Quote

Theme Park Therapy: Walt Disney on Reality

I believe many people will say that being an adult means putting away childish things, living responsibly and maturely in society. Sometimes the focus of “adulthood” and all of the things that come with it can take the joy of life away from us. We focus on the day to day responsibilities of work, family, and the expectations of this world that we forget to pause and enjoy the life we have.
