And the Thea Goes to...

Congratulations to all of the 27th Annual Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) Thea Awards recipients from across the globe!

We especially would like to congratulate our partners at Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI), as well as Dr. Jane Goodall and Bill Wallhauer from the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI). Both WDI and JGI were bestowed with the honor of receiving the Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement for 2021.

The Oscars of the themed entertainment industry, the Thea Awards are regarded as the industry’s highest honor and a symbol of excellence.
