HIPSTER Review: Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights 22 Orlando

My trip to Orlando last weekend was filled with exciting events. One of the events that I had the pleasure of attending was Halloween Horror Nights 22 (HHN) over at Universal Studios. With my nerves on ten I kept playing scenarios of possible chilling scenes that were on the way. Once finally able to push them aside, I entered the crowded gates of HHN for a somewhat spine-tingling evening.

HIPSTER Tuesday Tips: Can I play for free?

I have a Tuesday Tip for everyone. You’ve probably noticed the ridiculous prices that parade across the kiosks in the parks. I suggest staying at an extended vacation type resort and plan a day to do a time share presentation.

Tom Hanks to Play Walt Disney!

Disney Springs

Disney Springs

Tom Hanks will be playing Walt Disney in the film Saving Mr. Banks. This news is old, but I just wanted to post about my enthusiasm regarding this information. Mary Poppins is the most relatable character to me in the Disney franchise and I am super duper excited to see the back story come to life.

I will definitely post updated information as it gets closer to 2013 release date.

“The Haunted Mansion is For Sale….the replica of course”

The Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom

If you had the opportunity to live in the Haunted Mansion would you? Although it may not be the exact Haunted Mansion at the park, you can have a home that closely resembles the one at Disneyland in California.

My only issue with the listing is the wish that the home was staged to better reflect the true environment of the real Haunted Mansion.

Click here for more information on purchasing this home.

HIPSTER Quote of the Week

“Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children’s approach to life. They’re people who don’t give a hang what the Joneses do. You see them at Disneyland every time you go there. They are not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought – sometimes it isn’t much, either.”

Disney Quest

Did you know that you can park for free at most Theme Parks and hotels located in the Walt Disney World Resort? You can do this by parking at Downtown Disney.

Howl-O-Scream Busch Gardens

HIPSTER Review: Busch Garden’s Tampa Howl-O-Scream 2012

This past weekend I made my way over to Busch Gardens for their annual Howl-O-Scream event. To my surprise I had a great time! Getting there early really helped me optimize my time and I was able to go through five of the six houses (I skipped the shows this year to focus on the haunted attractions).
