Theme Parkology is a website dedicated for displaying and selling theme park, attraction, character, legend and signature documentary series. Their theme park documentary series features the stories and history behind many parks across the globe such as the Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland, Fantasyland, Universal Studios, Play Land at the Beach and the Frontier Village, among others. What makes these collections memorable is the fact that some theme parks are in operation while others closed down. 

Recently they have expanded into some very exciting audio-CD projects and an awesome set of collector cards that you can collect! We have been customers of Theme Parkology for years and have a growing library of DVDs to prove it. Recently based on theirs years of prime product and customer service, we have even started advertising in products.

(Shhh, hint, hint, Look inside any Theme Parkology DVD purchased after March 15, 2018 and you’ll find a business card from Destinations with Character Travel Agency with a Special Offer on how yu can get a Free Theme Parkology DVD!)

Here you are just some of the frequently asked questions about our website:

1) What is this site about?
This site provides daily updates with a large amount of pictures covering all the Orlando theme parks and attractions. It also occasionally cover other theme parks located across the United States and overseas.
2) Do you have picture-updates?
Of course! We have weekly photo-updates and, in many occasions, we have a new photo update every day!
3) Which parks does this site cover?
Orlando Theme Park News (OTPN) covers all the attractions found in Central Florida, with a focus on the major theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld Orlando, Discovery Cove, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, LEGOLAND Florida, and also all the water parks: Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Aquatica, Volcano Bay, Adventure Island, and LEGOLAND’s Waterpark. There are also monthly updates on minor attractions.
4) Do you cover special events?
Yes, we usually cover many special occasions like grand openings, festivals, themed parties, and many other miscellaneous events. That said, we do NOT cover Halloween, Christmas, Mardi Gras, or similar events.
5) Do you post out-of-the-loop updates?
Yes. Occasionally, we post updates from places and theme parks that are outside Florida, or even the United States. Of course, we post them only sporadically, as the main focus of this site are the Central Florida theme parks and attractions.
6) Can I submit pictures of one of my trips on the site?
Absolutely! If you would like to see them posted on our website, send them directly to our e-mail address: info@orlandoparksnews.com. You will be given all the credit for the pictures that will be sent to us.
7) Do you have a forum?
No, unfortunately we don’t have one, for many reasons. One of the reasons is that it would take up way too much time that we use for posting pictures, so it would only end up being a big loss for the site itself.
