Star Wars Land – One of the Most Anticipated Disney Attractions

Posted by Disney Visitor Blog on Tuesday, 25 August 2015 in Star Wars Land – One of the Most Anticipated Disney Attractions | 0 comments

Ever since Disney had acquired Lucasfilm, life as a Star Wars fan becomes an exciting storehouse of expectations and anticipations. For the theme-park guests as well, the urge for the future space entertainment is somewhat bigger and even more exciting. Well in deed, it’s all about dreaming big for anything and everything that is Star Wars now. Like a true space enthusiasts, I too think that the prospect of visiting a whole new galaxy of Star Wars is a landmark experience in the offing. And the recent announcement at the D23 Expo 2015 can’t be anything more exciting in this regard.

What was started as a rumor now taking shape in the form of an upcoming 14-acre Star Wars Land. An extraordinary initiative in deed in honor of the world’s most beloved space Franchise. It’s true that the most talked about Star Wars Land is coming. In fact there will be two of them – one each for both the Disney owned Resorts, in Florida and in California.  Whether it’s the WDW’s (Walt Disney World) Hollywood Studios or the Disneyland Resort, I think the proposed Star Wars Lands will take the space experience to an all new level, and  not to mention the kind of influences it have on the theme-park business as a whole.

Moreover, the new Star Wars Land is seen as the largest theme-park overhaul ever. Never before in the history of the Company there has been a single-theme initiatives of such immersive and widely expansive nature. In fact the Star Wars Land will be an entire world unto itself. It’s compared to the likes of Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Packed with new rides, shows, shops, and other authentic Star Wars features and attractions, including droids and epic Star Wars adventures, the experience is totally unique.

While the Star Wars Land at Disneyland is scheduled to break ground in 2017, the construction of the same on the WDW side is yet to be announced. But whatever be the dates, the advent of such an amazing Land will bring the Hollywood Studios into the list of top-most theme park choices for sure. There is also the new 11-acre Toy Story Land coming to the Park. Given both the attractions completed and opened for public it will be entirely a different story altogether for the respective Disney World Park. Moreover, with all the upcoming transformations and attractions, I think it’s a never before win-win situation for a Park that is often considered an afterthought.

Every Year, Fear Returns with New Surprises at Halloween Horror Nights

Posted by Disney Visitor Blog on Monday, 17 August 2015 in Every Year, Fear Returns with New Surprises at Halloween Horror Nights | 0 comments

The world observed Halloween with ample fun and trick or treating activities. But celebrating the special occasion with some of the biggest names in Hollywood’s horror history, right in the middle of the world’s most terrifying and lively surroundings is a different experience altogether. And the same is true to the Universal Orlando’s Halloween Fest. In fact the nation’s premier Halloween Event is a treat with terror like never before.  No other occasion or celebrations of its kind can replace what the HHN – Halloween Horror Nights Festival has to offer.
During the month-long Festival the entire Universal Studios Florida transforms into a living hell. With hordes of horrifying mutants, monsters and maniacs, guest at the special night-time Party relives the darkest times of horror in life. From the very moment you step in, you will be under the influence of a great screaming spell that you dare not to tell. Trapped in a state of perpetual fear, there is nowhere for you to skip the scare. Whether it’s the incredible array of haunted houses or the outrageous live shows, it’s a Night of no respite. Truly, for horror fans worldwide, the Event is a must visit occasion.
HHN is the ultimate haunting delight for visitors and vacationers to Orlando since inception. I think the award-winning Halloween Event only grows with time. Every year there is something new and scarier to have at the Party. And I think it’s the introduction of new, original and authentic horror movie moments that keeps the Event forever fresh and daring. The haunted houses are among the most favourite lots, and every year they come with new thrills and surprises. Taking part in the spine-chilling and blood-curdling adventures at any of the houses is like surviving the worst nightmares ever.
The Scar zones on the other hand are the screamers’ delights. They can be found everywhere around the Park – out in the streets or in areas nearby some attractions. Though not as elaborate and movie like as the haunted houses, but has the potential to make you scream like never before.

Moreover, it’s so exciting to know that the latest 2015 Event and the 25th instalment of HHN comes with one of the most terrifying Halloween experiences ever. It combines the best of scares from the past, present and future. With the advent of iconic faces like Jack the Clown or the return of the AMC’s The Walking Dead and much more, it’s a perfect scare fest for you this year.

 Those visiting first time should know that the HHN is a special ticketed event and not included with regular admissions. Guests have to pay extra to join the party on select nights. For Event details, schedules, and packages visitors can refer to the official Halloween Horror Nights website also.

The annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is one of the most anticipated event of its kind that WDW (Walt Disney World) has to offer. A visit to this ever-popular, epic feasting fest will put you in the middle of a sea of surprising tastes and flavors of the continents like never before. During the Event, the entire Epcot Park turns into a food mecca, where all the  flavors of the world come together in one magnificent and most incredible culinary experience ever.

Moreover, it’s always exciting to see that the crowd turns up in ever-increasing numbers to celebrate the unique occasion every fall from September until the mid of November. Indeed nowhere in the world food and wine come in such amazing and tempting flavors for us to taste and try. Whether it’s the most alluring marketplaces or the delicious dishes, the aesthetic wines or the incredible cooking shows and demonstrations by celebrity chefs, the culinary attractions exceed all expectations.

Ever since it hits the most coveted grounds of the World Showcase area, Epcot International Food & Wine Festival keeps growing both in its size and popularity. Along with the amazing festive ambiance, I think the introduction of new food concepts, including ever-refreshing menus and culinary surprises will continue to excite the never-ending fans base every time the Event returns.

When it comes to the real celebrations, the stalls or marketplaces are easily the most exciting places to look for during the Event. In fact the food stalls are the main highlights with their special country -specific menus, offering the ultimate culinary delights. One of the most promising highlights for the twentieth edition of the Fest is the inclusion of new attractions that graces the Future World area for the first time. Called  the Next Eats, the new area features two amazing marketplaces inspired from the popular TV series on foods.

In fact, the Chew plays an important role in the 2015 Event. With its highly innovative and sustainable recipe ideas it definitely takes the show to the next level. While the new Sustainable Chew booth features innovative and sustainable menus, the Chew Lab on the other hand exhibits some of the hottest culinary experiments ever. When it comes to wine, the newly introduced spirits from the Festival’s own wine brand is a must to try. And indeed it’s really special to see the 20th anniversary imprint on the cork of a bottle of Chardonnay or Cabernet for that matter.

The new line-up for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series is another major highlights of the Event. Besides the live musical acts, the special shows also act as exciting breaks between your epic feasting spree. Again the Celebrity Chef Demonstrations are a great favorite among food fans.  If you are interested in knowing more about the favorite recipes, you can join the special ticketed events where you will learn the techniques with well-known chefs.
