How to Start a Disney Travel Blog in 25 Minutes

Question of the Week: How to Start a Disney Travel Blog?

Congratulations on your big decision to start your very own Disney Travel blog! As many of you know, running ThemeParkHipster is a great passion of mine. I love visiting the parks any chance I get, so it was only natural for me to want to blog about my tips and experiences.

In this blog, I want to go over my journey with ThemeParkHipster as well as how you can start your own Disney blog. A lot of these tips can be used for a variety of other kinds of blogs too!

I am frequently asked how to start a Disney travel blog, but since my sole focus for this website is my passion for theme parks, we’ll keep this special edition article focused there.

Halloween Horror Nights 2

Halloween Horror Nights 1992

In 1992, the event was renamed Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights (advertised as the 2nd Annual Halloween Horror Night) instead of the previous Fright Nights. The 1992 year would add a new maze, The People Under the Stairs, in one of Universal’s soundstages.

Many of the attractions this year became “Horror-fied” and added a scary element to them.

Because of the success of the first year, Halloween Horror Nights would have a larger budget ($1 million) and would aim at becoming the number one Halloween event in America. Joseph Curley, Universal Studios Florida PR Manager at the time, stated that the 1992 year would be like Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Ways to socialize on your solo theme park trip

7 Tips for Socializing on Your Solo Theme Park Trip for Introverts | ThemeParkHipster Show Episode 24

If being alone scares you, don’t worry.

Since I started traveling to theme parks solo, I’ve noticed that I’ve become more confident in introducing myself to new people. This gives me a chance to truly be myself, since I am in my “zone.”

You may notice when you’re with your friends you’re more involved in the conversation, but when you’re alone you’re pleasantly nudged to spark up a conversation with someone waiting in an attraction line with you.

It goes without saying that my solo trips to parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, and more are refreshing. However, there are moments when I want to reach out to others in the park, but the introvert inside of me has to push through my own self-limiting thoughts and strike up a conversation.
