ThemePark Christmas Florida Fun 2013!

The 2013 Christmas season has been so wonderful that I wanted to give you all a Photo Post instead of the normal blog post. This year I decided to take you on a journey around as much of Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Florida, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and many others to capture the amazing holiday happenings going on in the sunshine state.

Feel free to post any of your pictures or stories here.

Enjoy!

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).

Disney Villains Friday the 13th Party at Hollywood Studios

Villains of the many Disney classics were all out in their entire glory! Friday the 13th was upon us and the night was invaded with the mischievous characters we’ve all come to have a love-hate relationship with. The sinister atmosphere at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was electric. Maybe it was due to the menacing villainous presence, or the huge crowd drawn in for the rare event. Either way it goes, it was entertaining.

Featured drinks: Pineapple Mojito and Sangria

Featured drinks: Pineapple Mojito and Sangria

Bongos, my go to spot for the perfectly concocted mojito. This famed Gloria Estefan Cuban restaurant is located in downtown Disney. If you’re looking for a spot where the mixologists have fiery flare and specialty drinks that will have you sliding down the bongo carved seats, then this is the place to be. Trust me when I say that each time I order a mojito here, I am NEVER disappointed.

For more information visit the official Bongos page.

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.

Manhattan Cocktail

This is absolutely a wonderful way to end an exhausting day at the Disney parks. A stiff barrel aged Manhattan  and a refreshing Gin-tle Breeze at Todd English’s BlueZoo Restaurant in the Swan and Dolphin Hotel. The hippest way to add an adult flavor to ThemePark fun!
