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.
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.
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.
I’m a Florida girl, always and forever. That’s why my first visit to Gatorland this past Sunday reminded me of why I love being a Floridian and why I miss and reminisce about the original Theme Parks of central Florida. Growing up I would see gators all of the time …
Who loves collecting park maps?
Me, Me, Me!
What started off as a simple “let me have this map as a souvenir”, mainly because my mom couldn’t really afford to buy us both food and park trinkets, became a must do every time I was at a Theme Park, rest stop, or hotel.

Once finally able to push them aside, I entered the crowded gates of HHN for a somewhat spine-tingling evening.

HIPSTER Quote of the Week: Walt Disney Quote About Growing Up
The Walt Disney quotes are timeless and prove to be much more valuable as life goes on. I particularly love the Disney quotes about growing up.
Or perhaps…not growing up.
It’s not to be in the same line of not maturing for what’s needed to be a productive citizen of the world, but more like looking at life with childlike wander.

HIPSTER Review: Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream 2012
This past weekend I made my way over to Busch Gardens for their annual Howl-O-Scream 2012 event.
To my surprise I had a great time!

Halloween Horror Nights 2012 Survival Guide and Tips
