As we get ready to welcome the new year, it's almost time to honor the best of the year gone by.
On New Year's Day, we will begin revealing the winners of this year's Theme Park Insider Awards — our 19th annual honors for the best of theme park industry around the world.
Last year's winners included Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, Shanghai Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Universal Orlando. This year, for this first time, instead of announcing all the winners at once, we will reveal the winner and honorable mentions in a single category each day, starting Wednesday and continuing through January 8, when we will announce the 2020 winner for World's Best Theme Park.
Your ratings over the past year have determined the winners in each category, honoring the top hotels, restaurants, and attractions in the industry. Long-time Theme Park Insider readers might remember that we originally presented the awards each year in the middle of the summer, on the American Independence Day of July 4. Starting last year, however, we switch to presenting the awards in January, so that the Best New Attraction awards would represent a full calendar year, rather than a 12-month period ending on either May 31 or June 30.
Thank you to everyone who had participated in Theme Park Insider in 2019, by rating, by commenting, or even just by reading. I deeply appreciate the honor of your time with and attention to the site, and I know that the parks also appreciate the honor of winning one of your awards.
Happy New Year, and we hope to see you for the award reveals starting Wednesday.Tweet
