Howl-O-Scream 2016 Review and Tips


For the 2nd year in a row Busch Gardens has invited me to the opening night events for Howl-O-Scream, one of the premier Halloween haunted events in the whole state of Florida. This year we were provided with VIP entry and skip the line passes to ensure we would get through all of the houses.  2 new haunted houses were introduced along with new scare zones for the 2016 themed, Evil Encore, and they did not disappoint.  I hope you enjoy this Howl-o-Scream 2016 review and I hope it is helpful in making your plans to attend  this year’s festivities.

Family Travel Adventure: Wiping Out At the Kalahari Waterpark Resort, Sandusky


Ride Wives in Winter

Waterparks are a definite summertime privilege that we all look forward to.  However, Florida waterparks in the summer also come with the perils of scorching hot pavement when you come out of the water, bugs that like to fly around and ruin the fun, and those pesky summer storms that roll in just about everyday with their ominous clouds and thunder and lightning that forces you out of the water to seek shelter.  It’s a real struggle bus sometimes.  But what if I told you there was a glorious place where you can enjoy the waterpark rain or shine, cold or hot, and there are no wasps, ants, or mosquitos around to harass you . Where is this mermaid mecca?  It’s the massive indoor waterpark at Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio, the largest indoor waterpark in America!  Read More »

Foodie Adventures: 3D Disney’s Dessert Discovery

3D Disney Dessert Discovery – Epcot Food and Wine Festival is a foodie adventure of sweets and spirits and the perfect event to show your adult Disney side.

It’s one of my favorite times of year!  It’s Epcot International Food and Wine time.  This is like Foodie Christmas.  Most people know all about sampling the various foods from around the world.  However many overlook the other events that make this festival even more of an adventure.  One of those awesome events is the 3D Disney Dessert Discovery event.

(This was not a sponsored post.  No compensation of any kind was given by Disney to promote this event.  All views and opinions are my own.  I’m just an annual passholder who likes to eat!)
