Theme Park Insider's 2014 New Year's resolutions for theme park fans
Written by Robert Niles
One of our annual traditions at Theme Park Insider is our New Year's resolution list. Each year, we present a list of resolutions for theme park fans to try to keep during the year ahead.Tweet

If there's a single theme that unites these resolutions it would be the ideal that other people aren't your enemy. Don't fall into the trap of seeing everything in life as a competition, including your vacation. The people you'll find in theme park are fans, just like you. Welcome your opportunity to be in community with them, and with the employees who help bring the park to life everyday. That's a healthier way to live in life — and not just in theme parks.
Enjoy your advance planning, do your research, get to know your destination, and come prepared to have a good time. But never lose sight of the fact that this is the theme park community, and everyone has a better time in a community when no one's trying to beat it.
In that spirit, here are our New Year's resolutions for theme park fans:
Thank you to the Theme Park Insider readers who offered suggestions for this year's resolution list. It's not too late to add your suggestions, either. Just post to the comments with your ideas on how we all can help make 2014 a great year for the entire theme park community. Stay safe tonight, and Happy New Year!
