HIPSTER Photo of the Week: Christmas at Busch Gardens Tampa

The holiday season has officially arrived in central Florida and I was able to do a quick visit to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay as they prepared to set the stage for the spectacular Christmas Town celebration. An event that will combine 15,000 sq. ft. of real snow to play in, a deliciously prepared feast by Mrs. Claus, more lights than you can imagine, and oh yeah the thrilling rides that keep Hipsters returning to Busch Gardens. This event will run on select nights from November 29th until December 23rd of this year.

Cyber Monday Deals for ThemePark Travel!

Black Friday shopping is done and Small Business Saturday has passed. We have now reached Cyber Monday, a day where all of us computer geeks can get our shopping on without fighting the crazy holiday crowds. For this Hipster, a journey to someone’s ThemePark completes my holiday list, but this year I’m thinking about doing a full out vacation style trip.

Happy Thanksgiving Hipsters!

Autumn at the Magic Kingdom Happy Thanksgiving Day Hipsters!

Today is a special day to enjoy your loved ones and to give thanks to the many blessings in your life. If you’re out in the ThemeParks, then have a fun time for me because it’s my birthday and I will be at my parents house celebrating another year of life and another opportunity to fellowship with family and friends.

I plan on stuffing my face with dressing, mash potatoes, macaroni and cheese, fried turkey, and birthday cake 🙂 After I am pleasantly plump, I will lay out on the couch and enjoy the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with my nieces and nephews surrounding me.

What do you have planned to celebrate this joyous occasion?

Until next time be safe and be happy!

EPCOT Country Highlight: Let’s Go to Mexico!

Hola, Amigos! Let’s take a trip to the beautifully diverse country of Mexico, but we won’t be leaving Florida for this visit. EPCOT will teleport us to the mystical mountainous country by the imaginative magic of Walt Disney. Here you can hear the mariachi band performing in the background, taste exquisite food that will allure your taste buds, sip on tantalizing tequila, and have a watery adventure with the Three Caballeros in the twilight of the Plaza de los Amigos.

Disney’s Haunted Mansion Fandom

Happy Halloween!

Disney’s Haunted Mansion is one of the top attractions among ThemeParkHipsters, so much so that there is a large fandom that encompasses fan fiction, meetups, collectibles, comics, and numerous pop culture mentions around the world! I’ve always enjoyed the ride, but I could never quite ride it alone (no surprise there).

Happy Monday Hipsters!

ThemeParkHipster.com drink of the week is called the Serenity from Todd English’s Bluezoo Restaurant at the Swan and Dolphin Hotel. I must say that this restaurant houses some of the best mixologists who take their craft seriously.

TPH’s 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery Quest 2013

Dessert overload with sweetness swirling throughout my palate, sugarplums dancing on my plates, and divine nectar of the vine to quench my thirst were all a part of my dining experience during my 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery adventure at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival.

Autumn at the Magic Kingdom

Autumn in central Florida is in full swing. There are never enough pumpkin patches, stunning leaf color transformations, and spooky attractions at the Theme Parks. The weather will also be much cooler…well at least for us Floridians…this up coming week. I am super excited about that.

What are you favorite fall activities to do at the amusement parks in Florida?
