Christmas at Ft. Wilderness Lodge

Free Christmas at Disney World

Happy Holidays Hipsters!

There’s nothing like the holiday season. Rather it’s sitting cozily next to a fireplace with family or feeling the spirit of Christmas while walking around the Walt Disney World onsite hotels. Although I love both activities, I think you’d probably guess that the latter has become my new holiday tradition. A few years ago I discovered this new way of enjoying a free Christmas at Disney World. When I’d set out to do a post to help my fellow ThemeParkHipsters save on theme park holiday fun, I had no idea I’d discover how wonderful AND free a Disney holiday experience could be.

ThemeParkHipster’s New Year’s Resolutions 2014

Whelp, it’s a new year again and like most people I’ve made resolutions for 2014; however, my resolutions involve animals of Africa, food from France, and a voyage on the Titanic ThemeParkHipster style!

I am determined to conquer my ThemePark resolutions this year. Last year I procrastinated half way through, which led to my disappointing letdown of the 2013 goals. But Hipsters please trust me when I say that I will do it this year…seriously, I’m for real (I write this as I think of the readers laughing at my failed attempt to convince the masses of my determination).

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).
