Here There Be Monsters: Visiting the Last Unexplored Corner of the Magic Kingdom

There’s a beautiful scene when you first enter the building at Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean. An old pirate map, watched over by a talking parrot. A map of buried treasure, lost caves, and forgotten islands. And right at the edge of the map, the unexplored territory. “Here There Be Monsters.” When it comes to […]

One More Parkeology Day

Parkeology is pleased to announce our entertainment offerings for our once-in-a-lifetime “One More Parkeology Day” event, beginning tomorrow. Our statistics show that most people don’t begin reading Parkeology before nine in the morning. We suspect that this is because most of them are still hung over. However, for tomorrow’s special day, we are making our […]

Separated At Birth

If there is one thing we love around the Parkeology campus it’s Oscar time.  Shane really goes all out with the parties and predictions.  Not only does he demand to see every single nominated film (yes, even the foreign shorts) but he also dresses up as the nominated actors (and actresses) characters, one a day […]

The Carousel House Murders and the Haunted Carousel of Progress

We depart from our normal fun-loving hilarity to request urgent help in a developing situation. We ask our readers, both home and abroad, to please contact us if they have any information regarding the whereabouts of Dr. Harold Farthing. Most of you know Dr. Farthing as one of the preeminent Parkeologists in the field today. […]

Match Game 3

One of the cool things about doing this site is that there are so many other people out there who are just as weird and obsessed about crazy Walt Disney World stuff as we are. Also, they are apparently deranged pyromaniacs. Our close personal friend Jess M. was kind enough to email some more pictures […]

4 Haunting Disney World Smells

My first trip to Walt Disney World was in the early 70s. My family would go every year. We lived in Indiana, so needless to say, we drove (the first airplane was not sighted in Indiana until Reagan’s second term). My childhood was spent marking time between Disney World visits like a prisoner making notches […]

Infinity in my pants!

OK… Just a quick image today that I blatantly stole from our friend Jerry (Who I think may have stolen it himself so take a hike Jerry)…   But seriously, I don’t care how big a company you are,  I don’t care how many projects you are juggling or how low priority something like this […]

Walt Disney World Quest Magical Racing Tour (2000)

It’s been a long time since we had an entry in our series of park-based video games. And as you no doubt have noticed, the world financial markets are reacting to this oversight. Unemployment figures have risen sharply, and America’s students are now verifiably stupider than they were before. So, here to set everything right, […]

A guy named Joe…

Joe Rohde has become one of those guys… you know, the handful of Imagineers that have crossed over from being an anonymous hard hat wearing dude in a corner of the park to a niche celebrity. Lets call him a geek star, if you are into Disney then Joe is climbing the ladder of fame […]
