How do you plan for a day at a theme park alone?

Now that you’ve decided to take the leap and live out your theme park adventures alone, it’s time to make the most of your trip.  Everyone has tips out there for the average theme park goer, but what about you (the solo theme park hopper)? Let’s look at ways to outline your solo trip.

Have you ever wanted to go to a theme park alone?

Theme park hopping alone?

What?!?

You’re probably thinking that there’s a misprint on the title of this article. There are so many tips and tricks on the web about globetrotting alone, but hardly anything to guide someone interested in going to a theme park unaccompanied.

The Perfect Christmas Resort Hopping Route at Walt Disney World

Did you know you could do the holidays at Disney for FREE?!? Christmas resort hopping at Walt Disney World is my new yuletide tradition. It’s a fun way to enjoy the Disney life on a budget and you’ll be able to save one of your park hopper days on your trip.

It’s something I tried for the first time a few years ago with OutdoorsyDiva and now I am totally hooked!

The Death of ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter at the Magic Kingdom

A few weeks ago, on a super EXTRA hot Florida day, I spent some time in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom exploring the nooks and crannies I’d ignored on prior visits. On my journey I passed Stitch’s Great Escape with a less than five minute wait and thought to myself, “why not catch the next showing,” so I detoured and headed inside for the pre-show.

Happy November

Happy November Hipsters!

It’s one of the best months of the year and not because it’s my birthday month…well maybe it is…but it’s definitely the time of the year that the holiday season goes into full force. You’re bombarded with great weather, festive events at theme parks, and the excitement of counting down to Christmas.

13 Things We Love About Fall at the Florida Theme Parks

Pumpkin spice, horrors at Universal, wild nights at Busch Gardens, and trick or treating with Mickey are some things we love about fall in central Florida.

A couple of days ago I was riding in the car and for once I was able to have my windows down. There was a briskness in the Florida air that’s always welcomed and desired in this state. This time of year happens to be one of our (ThemeParkHipsters) favorites with the opportunity to enjoy the parks in the fall with fewer amounts of people. We come out of our summer hibernation in Florida and bask in the fall décor both autumn and spooky in nature as it kicks off the holiday season.

Theme Park Therapy: The Moment of Doubt

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, doubt is an uncertainty of belief or opinion that often interferes with decision-making.

DOUBT. It will affect each one of us in some type of way throughout our lifetime. It may come as a constant, poisonous imprisonment that trickles slowly through your mind just when you’re at your lowest. It perfects its introduction in the mist of your journey when you’re pursuing your dreams, perfecting your craft and working diligently to change the course of your life.
