An Ocean of Halloween Fun


Count von Count
October 6 is the first day of my favorite Halloween event during the day time. The only time of year when you can dress up in costume and spend the day by the sea at Seaworld. Seaworld's Halloween Spooktacular is from October 6-7, 13-14, 19-21, and 26-28 and they have a ton of Spooky Halloween fun going on. Firstly they have the Count Von Count's Spooktacular Breakfast! This yummy breakfast buffet is a party of its own hosted by Count himself, and a couple of really awesome friends.

The count down to Halloween takes place in the streets on the park with sing a longs with friends. This musical Celebration will be hard to miss. You mite even the chance to meet Elmo! Then head over to Penelope's Party Zone! Located in Bayside stadium all day long and enjoy music, crafts and family fun, Penelope is also hosting Candy apple and Rice Crispie decorating! Decorate your favorite chocolate covered treats with friends and family. Make sure you also watch out for "sea star paparazzi over at Bayside Stadium by the Wild Artic exibit, wear your best costume for the glamorous photo shoot and watch your shots during the virtual parade during the Spookacular pre show before Shamu Rocks. (Arrive at Shamu Stadium around 30 mins early to see the preshow).

Of course you can trick or treat all over the park with Special Spooktacular Maps to stop at over 15 different stations featuring candy galore. The Spooky sea witches Gummy Worm Wanda, Salt Water Taffy, Swedish Fish Suzy, along with over 35 other fanciful sea creatures, greet, mingle, and play with guests making their way through the event.

Do you want to see everything at Spooktacular, and to get the tour of sea-lion, dolphin and other animal exhibits, along with some front line access with a light lunch? Well then take the Family Tour! You have a personal tour guide that embarks on a 4 hour walking tour around to our favorite animal exhibits, like maybe the dolphin nursery and you get to touch a penguin! Also reserved seating for the new killer whale show "One Ocean" plus a light lunch and front line access at Shamu's Happy harbor along with a special gift from Shamu himself.

The Force is coming to LEGOLAND Florida!

For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is” -Yoda

Legoland Star Wars Expansion
As you all know, one of my favorite movies of all time is Star Wars. Period! I get my hands on collecting anything that crosses my eyes that has to do with the franchise, and I’ve seen thru the awesomeness of Disney’s Star Wars Weekend a few of my favorite villains and characters from this amazing movie. There’s been some geeky-status highs (standing side by side to the awesome and fan-friendly Jeremy Bulloch aka Boba Fett), and some lows (I am looking at you mom for selling my collection of toys, including my very treasured Millennium Falcon, sniff sniff). 

I got amazing news for you all Rebel Alliance geeks out there (and for Emperial Troops out there, I am looking at you). Legoland has announced that they will be building a new Star Wars miniland!

Opening November 2012, you will be able to see many creations built with LEGO bricks recreating scenes and characters from the scifi all 6-films saga (A new Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith), adding to this the awesome TV series “The Clone Wars” (which you can watch in Cartoon Network).

Amidst a replica of the Millenium Falcon, which surely looks simply amazing in its detail, and the character replica of the villain Darth Maul with its undistinguishable double light saber, this is terrific news to this wonderful and whimsical park.

Legoland Florida has minilands with beloved Florida attractions and venues of interest all made with legos, including a whole impressive area that has new york, san Francisco, las vegas, and Washington DC areas which are incredibly detailed and fill with funny outtakes. Plus around the park you can find attractions that will showcase awesome entertainment and a grand view of the natural beauty around the park.

This will certainly add a new centerpiece for a whole Star Wars super week…you can head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and enjoy Star Tours 2: The Adventure Continues, or enjoy the wonderful geek-tastic Star Wars Celebration which happens every year here at Central Florida, and now add Legoland’s Star Wars land in your things-to-do!

Can’t wait for this area to be open…and I know it will be a thing of beauty and fun for the entire family!

Kids Eat Free at SeaWorld

For the first-time-ever, SeaWorld, Orlando's favorite theme-park is offering a special park perk at Dine with Shamu.  This behind the scenes attraction, is featuring kids-eat-for-free valid through  December 31, 2012.

Kids ages 3-9, will be immersed into the mysterious world of killer whales in training and free lunch to boot.  This pool-side buffet at Shamu Stadium will create lasting memories for years to come.

Where children normally eat for $24, (children under age 3 free),  now they can enjoy fresh hot dogs, Sea Shell Pasta with vine ripe tomato marinara and meatballs, Mac & Cheese, and Seasonal Fruits with Vegetables for free.

Dine with Shamu experience offers a unique close encounter with these playful orca's that will give kids a healthy perspective which underscores the gracefulness and power of these remarkable creatures.
