Alamo City Comic Con, 2016

Monday, December 12, 2016
Hello lovely readers!

I hope you've all been doing exceptionally well because you all deserve wonderful things heading your way! Today I bring to you a post on the other "holiday" besides Thanksgiving that brings us all together, Comic Con Weekend.

Alamo City Comic Con hit my city a bit over a month ago and aside from the special memories I made it also is a full circle for my blog because it's the first thing I ever blogged about back in 2015. So, let's get started!

Orlando Trip, Day Four: Island of Adventure

Another Monday, another Opportunity!

Hello readers, today I finish my four part diary to my first trip to Orlando back in July. We visited the Magic Kingdom, traveled the world to Epcot, entered the magical world of Universal Studios Orlando, and now I finish it up with my last post: Island of Adventure.

Orlando Trip, Day Three: Universal Studios Orlando

Monday, November 28, 2016
Hello Monday!

It's been far too long since I last posted on here and I can't tell you how good it feels to be writing again! Work has truly kept me busy, but that's okay because I have great big adventures in the way.

Today I'm back to finish writing about my summer trip to Orlando because there needs to be more blogging about magical places!! You can read the first two parts of this four part series here and here. 

It's been a magical week or two since the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them that it felt reasonable to post about my visit that has access to Diagon Alley, Universal Studios Orlando. Again, this post is not sponsored by anyone. This is a visual diary of mine that I share with the rest of you friends. Got it? Let's get started!

You know I had to take advantage of the sun light! Sam and I on our way to the park!

Ah, the beautiful entrance. I will say, it was a bit nostalgic seeing this golden arch after seeing its sister arch back in Hollywood for many years.

Definitely not the same exterior like in Universal Studios Hollywood.

Taking advantage of Snapchat's Geo-Filter. I'm not the only one in the hunt for all of them, right? I am? Oh, okay....Let's move on!

Lon Chaney's Make Up according to the sign next to these beautiful artifacts.

I've been obsessed with Universal Monsters and Alfred Hitchcock since a child (thank you USH), that seeing all of the movie props, costumes and makeup made me so giddy!

This museum/show gave me **feels**! It reminded me of the long, gone show "Studio Effects" attraction in USH, where now the new Transformers ride lives.

Terminator. I miss you in California!

I couldn't tell if it was hunger talking, but the food at Mel's was SO. GOOD.  

I'm *dead.* Seeing this attraction and getting on it again gave 5 year old Elizabeth so much happiness! This ride means a lot to my parents since it's one of the first rides we rode in USH when we went our first year.

Now comes the portion in the post where I lose my mind and post nothing but Diagon Alley photos. You have been warned.

Yes, you can meet the men in charge of the Knight Bus.

My *death my love* face once crossing the brick wall.

Baby breathes fire!! Protecting the future not-so-safe-since-our-dragon-left Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

The wand that chose me.


Seriously, the details and love that was used to bring Wizarding World of Harry Potter to life is evident everywhere you turn. Bravo, artists!

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts attraction is amazing! The waiting area is amazing. Simply ride this ride!

My first Butterbeer! So tasty when it's frozen in a hot July day.

Leaving Knockturn Alley because #NOPE to Death Eaters.

When a witch attempts to go Vogue. 

So many wands! Which means, yours is somewhere in there too!

Sad attempt at making magic.

Once we left Diagon Alley, we decided to go #vogue once more next to this cool mural in the park.

Bless the folks who asked if we wanted our picture taken together.

We had to leave the park early due to our shuttle, but we still covered 80% of the park on a busy day. We had tons of fun! I can't wait to share our last park visit,  Island of Adventure! Read my other park visits to Magic Kingdom and Epcot!

Thank you again for reading my blog! I'll see you next time my beautiful readers! 

xo, Elizabeth


Orlando Trip, Day Two: Epcot

Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Hello awesome readers!

Today I'm continuing my Orlando travel journal with my second post from the trip (you can read the first post here). My second park visit in the Walt Disney World Resort was...


That's right, my friend Sam and I got to visit the world for the price of an admission ticket. Now Epcot is a park of its own kind. In my own opinion, it is a park that brings together culture with its World Showcase, but also eco-awareness and technology.

When entering we started off with meeting characters while our makeup was still on (thank you, Floridian humidity). 

Baymax. BAYMAX!!

 Do you see this? This is Disney magic captured in a camera.

Of course, you can't forget getting photos with the OG characters of Disney.

Also, you have to take advantage of the cool mosaic wall in The Land area of the park.

Seriously, it was such a rad wall that reminded me of land and its age, you know, the ones shown in Earth Science.

And then, we fell incredibly in love with the World Showcase Pavilions. Enjoy these photos!

England Pavilion

France Pavilion. I highly encourage everyone to watch the Impressions de France video in the pavilion. If you ever needed another reason to fall in love with the idea of visiting France, this 18 minute film will fuel you more. Plus, A/C!

Inside the Amerian Pavilions' The American Adventure show.

China Pavilion was not only cool, but had tons of shops and a restaurant. Definitely made me think I was in the real country.

Sam took this awesome shot while we visited the Germany Pavilion. I couldn't stop thinking of Pinocchio!

You can meet Snow White in Germany as well!

Back visiting the UK Pavillion, we were in love!

Mexico's Pavilion was so cool! So glad to have a bit of home inspired in the parks.

Look at those storm clouds and sun setting behind the France Pavilion. Ugh, *swoon* 

Morroco's Pavilion. Goodness it was so detailed. I couldn't stop praising the architecture of every pavilion. 


Italy's Pavilion

If I remember correctly, this was the Outpost between China and Germany.  

You can meet these Frozen sisters in the Norway Pavilion in their Royal Sommerhus. Perfect to visit Elsa and Anna after getting on Frozen Ever After attraction.

Hydration in the Parks is no joke. Luckily, many restaurants offer free water to help you stay hydrated. 

And that was our visit to Epcot! It's truly so so beautiful. To the day, I can't stop thinking about Epcot. It's truly fueled a need to travel the world and discover it more. It may not be a park with heavy attractions like Magic Kingdom, but it's perfect for food and drink (and I mean, alcohol from the world!). I encourage everyone to visit this park, it's definitely a favorite of mine.

Until my next post, my lovely readers. If you want to read my first post from Magic Kingdom, just click here and be on the lookout for my next post on Universal Studios Orlando!

xo, Elizabeth
