I think one of the big stories of 2013 is how HUGE this site is becoming. In a very short time, TPI has really stepped up as the leader in theme park news. I see TPI being quoted all the time by newspapers and TV and magazines and everything. I also think the quality of writing on this site has just become incredible lately. Robert remains the best at what he does, but the new columnists lately have been just awesome. And the wonderful food reviews we got this year from Amanda Jenkins were just delicious. I am just so grateful for this resource and so happy to see this site growing and really becoming a true digital magazine for theme park fans. Keep up the great work in 2014!

Ah, thanks. (What's the emoticon for blushing?)

Honored to make the list!

Of course, the big stories I felt were the Disney and Universal stepping up their game with New Fantasyland, Harry Potter, and Avatar. I feel that we are entering into a new golden age!

Thanks Annette! That was a sweet compliment. It has been a very interesting year for theme parks. It makes me even more anxious to see what is in store for us when plans become more defined.
