Theme Parks – Guides, News, and Reports

Galaxy’s Edge Theme Parks

We’re fans. We have a lot of FEELINGS about theme parks.  This is where we talk about them.

We here at the Geekiary have been visiting theme parks for decades.  Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios. Since theme parks have been adding more and more geeky attractions, our investment in visiting theme parks has grown exponentially.  On this page we will link to all of our guides, news, and attendee reports.
