Theme Park of the Day: Knott's Berry Farm

Rate and review on-site theme park hotels around the world, on Theme Park Insider

July 8, 2013, 5:59 PM · If you were following Theme Park Insider over the long holiday weekend (in the United States), you might have heard that three of the four top spots in this year's Theme Park Insider Awards went to theme park resorts outside the United States. The only award to go to a US theme park was the Best Theme Park Hotel honor, which went to Universal Orlando's Portofino Bay Hotel once again.

I'd proud of the increased international reach of, as well as the increasing number of our US-based readers who are finding ways to make international travel part of their vacation experiences. Together, they're leading to more submitted reader ratings for parks outside the US, allowing the very best of those parks to compete for our annual awards.

That said, while I think we've done a pretty good job of listing the rides, shows and restaurants at the international theme parks most likely to attract English-speaking visitors (we are an English-language website and community, after all), we haven't been as aggressive in listing and promoting reviews of official, on-site hotels at some of these resorts.

Not that I'm campaigning for a non-US sweep of the awards — but I do want to make sure that we are giving you, the Theme Park Insider readers, every opportunity to rate and review important components of the theme park vacation experience at top resorts around the world, including on-site hotels.

So allow me to take a moment to direct your attention to our listings of on-site hotels at highly-attended theme park resorts outside the United States. If you've stayed at any of these hotels, your submission of ratings, reviews and photos would be greatly appreciated by other readers thinking about future theme park trips!
