Looking for the positive in anything can be difficult, especially if that anything is something ghastly consuming to your life. We all have our days where the glass half full seems to be a bit emptier than ever. All I can say to you is that your Spring is here and your Summer is awaiting you.
Ahh…the brink of Florida summer is quickly approaching and the Floridians are preparing for the time of year that makes us question our choice of residence. Luckily, Dockside Margaritas has opened just in time to usher in the variety of delicious thirst quenchers to make our heat-stricken summer more bearable.
Happy Friday Hipsters!
It’s time to toast to the weekend with this week’s HIPSTER Drink of the Week, Pimm’s Cup.
Pimm’s Cup at Epcot’s Rose & Crown Pub is an outstanding way to begin the weekend. This simple, yet delicious cocktail mixes Pimm’s No. 1 and Sprite ®. That’s it! The Rose& Crown Pub definitely delivers something so simple that tastes extremely scrumptious. You can barely taste the alcohol, a plus for some drinkers, which leads to a nice buzz complete with a smooth, sweet finish.
A specialty Earth Day Cupcake is available to celebrate this special day. This chocolate cupcake has a chocolate mousse filling with white buttercream dipped in Oreo crumbs. It is topped with a chocolate flowerpot and gummy worms. You can find this cupcake at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery and Isle of Java in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This is a sweet way to celebrate Earth Day at Disney.
Happy Sunday Hipsters! It’s time for your Walt Disney World News Around the Mouse.

This foodie adventure will immerse guests with live music and guided tours aboard the Captain’s Italian Water Taxi complete with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries.
Happy Friday Hipsters!
It’s time to toast to the weekend with this week’s HIPSTER Drink of the week, Ace Pineapple Hard Cider.
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.
