In a time when America seems increasingly divided into opposing camps and cliques, we at Attractions Magazine decided take a lighthearted poll of our readers on one of the more contentious contemporary debates: proper theme park attire! [Read more…]
Legoland Florida started welcoming guests to their front gate this weekend to pick up their annual passes. Although the gates to get in Florida’s newest theme park are not yet open, those picking up their passes had the opportunity to buy some Lego merchandise, get a park map and meet a couple of Lego characters.

Since we started the magazine a couple of years ago, we’ve had a limited number of Orlando Attractions Magazine T-Shirts available.
They’ve been quite popular, as we’re down to only a handful of small and large sizes remaining. But we realize not everyone wants a shirt with just our logo on it. We’ve planned on offering more designs for a while but haven’t had a chance to create them.
That’s where you come in.
We’re looking clever sayings, phrases, or design ideas to be made into T-shirts. The design ideas should relate to theme parks, attractions or Orlando, but don’t necessarily have to be Orlando-specific. We want to offer shirts that people would enjoy wearing while on vacation or to show off their love of theme parks at home.
Submit your T-shirt design ideas to us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. An idea can be as simple as a few words or as complicated as a polished piece of artwork. It’s totally up to you.
We’ll choose a few of the best design ideas and have them made into T-shirts to be available for sale right here on our Web site. And if we choose your design, you will not only get bragging rights but also a free shirt featuring your idea.
Of course, there are some rules: We reserve the right to modify your designs and ideas. The ideas can’t contain anything that is copyrighted or trademarked. We want them to be fun, but also somewhat generic. For example, as much as we’d like to, we can’t produce a T-shirt that features a picture of Shamu or a Disney character on it. Likewise, we can’t include trademarked names like SeaWorld or Universal Studios, or attraction names such as Men In Black, Splash Mountain, etc.
But there’s still plenty of freedom. We can include a non-specific roller coaster or a generic example of a type of ride. Or if you need to reference a particular attraction and can do it without specifically naming it, go for it.
So send us any ideas that you have, as long as they relate to a theme park, attraction, or Orlando in general. We’ll take silly, fun, clever, funny, or almost any other adjective you can think of (though it must be family-friendly).
We’re looking forward to receiving your ideas and developing some stylish new theme park T-shirts soon!
Thanks to the suggestion of a reader, our magazine covers are now available for purchase in a variety of ways. A reader wrote in wanting to buy one of our covers as a poster for her son and we had one of those “Why didn’t we think of that?” moments.
All of the photos in our online gallery have always been available to purchase as different size prints, as well as T-shirts, mousepads, on mugs and more. We’ve had many orders from scrapbookers in the past. But we’d never thought of uploading our magazine covers.
We now not only have the original covers available, but also clean versions without the teaser text on them.
Because of cropping issues, the covers are only available in certain sizes. Here’s what’s available:
18×24 print in glossy or matte: $24.99
18×24 print in metallic: $34.99
30×40 print in glossy or matte: $49.99

Some friends were in town this week so we made a full day trip to Epcot. Here are some things that caught my eye.
We start at the front of the park where the line for Spaceship Earth was very long early in the day. A tip for those who don’t know: wait and ride Spaceship Earth later when the lines are much shorter.
They had quite a bit of American Idol Experience merchandise for sale inside Club Cool. It seemed a bit out of place to me since the Experience is in Hollywood Studios, but I guess Coke is one of the main sponsors of the show.
This fire truck has been in Innoventions West for a while so I mostly ignore it, but this time I noticed a couple of things I hadn’t before. You can scroll the wheels on this display to see the patches from different fire stations around the country. Once selected, it gives you information about that fire department.
On down from that is a place where you can take your photo next to the truck, then go to the nearby computer screens and add some fire hats and other things to your picture, then e-mail it to yourself.
