A huge part of the credit for our site's appeal must go to our writers. So we thank Jacob Sundstrom, Jeff Elliott, Russell Meyer, Amanda Jenkins, Daniel Etcheberry, James Koehl, Krista Joy, James Rao, Derek Potter, Bryan Wawzenek, Matt McDonough, Bobbie Butterfield, Ben Mills, Anthony Murphy, Scott Joseph, Bob Emanuel Jr., Brian Emery, Dan Heaton, Domenik Jost, Marc Kleinhenz, Martin Lewison, and Laurie Niles for gracing our front page this year. Thanks also go to Brian Niles for assisting with our video coverage of the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley this summer. I live in Southern California and while I try to get to Orlando several times a year, it's never enough. So we're always looking for annual passholders at the Walt Disney World or Universal Orlando resorts who would like to join us on the front page, writing about new or overlooked restaurants, shops, and attractions at those resorts. (Email me at email@example.com with some ideas for posts if you are interested! If you've been reading the site for a while, you'll know what we're looking for.)
We also would like to thank the Universal Orlando Resort, Disneyland Paris, Universal Studios Hollywood, the Disneyland Resort, Knott's Berry Farm, SeaWorld San Diego, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Busch Gardens Tampa, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Six Flags Great America, Kings Island, Cedar Point, Legoland California, Legoland Florida, and IAAPA for inviting us to cover press events this year. (Yeah, there's a big resort missing from that list. If that resort would like to include us on its media invitation list for press events in 2015, we would be happy to cover those events for our half a million readers a month! Until then, thank you again to our many writers for providing excellent coverage of that resort without official press access.)
Finally, we would like to thank BRC Imagination Arts for a generous financial contribution to the site this year, which will be using to add even more coverage of the industry to the site in the months ahead. If you'd also like to express your support for the Theme Park Insider community, we hope that you'll consider ordering one of our fan-designed shirts and hoodies and wearing them to the parks, or buying one of our books on Amazon or on iTunes and leaving a favorable review. If you'd like to throw a little something into the tip jar as well, we've got a link for that, too:
Thank you, again, to everyone who participates in the Theme Park Insider community, in any way. You are the best theme park community in the world, and we are honored to be here every day with you. Happy New Year, Theme Park Insiders!Tweet
