We all know that Spring is soon approaching, mainly because of the pollen, the birds, the bees, and the flowers springing to life at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. There you will find me in the midst of the colorful garden creations, the vivacious seminar events, and the consuming cocktails in true honor of the Mouse from March 1st through May 29th.

Candlelight Processional 2014 Returns to Epcot

Candlelight Processional 2014 Returns to Epcot: Candlelight Processional is one of my favorite ThemePark holiday traditions to do at Walt Disney World. Each guest at Epcot is entertained with the jubilant reciting of the divine Christmas story from November 28th until December 30th. The story is usually told by a celebrity narrator accompanied with a 50-piece orchestra and a magnificent mass choir.

Goodbye Maelstrom

In case you are not aware the last boat ride of Maelstrom into the wintery mysteries of Norway will take place this Sunday, October 5, 2014. The announcement came as a shocker to most Epcot fans; however, the rumor of its Frozen-themed replacement surfaced on the Internet a few months ago and I can admit that I did not believe it. I swore my friends up and down that there was absolutely NO WAY Disney would close such a classic and replace it with, what I felt was, a temporary cultural fad.

But as I continued to think about it, I realized that Maelstrom was no different from Horizons, World of Motions, or even El Rio Del Tiempo.

Best Thing I Ever Ate: L’Artisian des Glaces at Epcot

It’s time for ThemeParkHipster’s Best Thing I Ever Ate series!

Can I say OMG! Where have I been for the past few ThemePark years! Thanks to the wonderful blogger over at Disney Food Blog (and a couple of my friends) for informing me about this wonderful mouthwatering experience at Epcot’s L’Artisian des Glaces. And yes I said experience because it was so much more than an ice-cream treat. The Croque Glace is the type of foodie adventure you have to sit down, be quiet and just relish in the party that’s taking place on your palate.
