Vote for your favorite Walt Disney World attractions in our first ever KennythePirate Attractions Tournament! We are kicking off with Round 1 Game 1 right now!
The Crew had so much fun with the KennythePirate Character Tournament, we’re starting another one! This time, we’ll vote each day to narrow down our favorite Walt Disney World attractions. In the championship, we’ll decide on the ultimate Disney World attraction!
Here’s how it works:
Every day at approximately 12:00 pm EST we will post two attractions for you to vote on. The link will be sent to Twitter, Facebook (both the official page and Crew group), and your email if you are a subscriber. We will work through 4 categories of characters:
- Classic Rides
- Family Rides
- “Thrill” Rides
The poll will be closed at 6:00 am EST the following day.
Once we work through the first round in all 4 categories, the winners will advance on to the next round. We will continue this until we have a winner.
Make sure you are on the lookout for this post each day, and vote using the poll in the post!
This tournament will be played similar to March Madness. Let’s call it “Summer Madness!”
The Attraction Tournament Bracket
Here are the attractions we will be voting for during this tournament. You’ve got some tough choices ahead of you!
Some attractions fit in more than one category, so we selected what we felt was the most appropriate category.
Walt Disney World Classics
So, let’s get started with the first round! The first round features Walt Disney World “classic” attractions.
These attractions have been around a long time; in fact many of these attractions were in place and open to guests on the day Walt Disney World opened its doors!
What makes an attraction a “classic?” The definition can vary, but we believe it is a combination of longevity, popularity, and nostalgia that keeps these attractions around for the long run.
All of the attractions in the “classic” bracket are located in either Magic Kingdom or Epcot.

For the first “game,” we are starting with Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, both located in Magic Kingdom.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant is an aerial carousel-style ride located in Fantasyland. Dumbo the Flying Elephant was available to guests on the first day the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, and has been a park favorite ever since.
Dumbo is based on the 1941 animated feature, and consists of 16 ride vehicles, which each resemble Dumbo.
Prince Charming Regal Carrousel is a carousel located in Fantasyland. The carousel was one of the rides available to guests on the day Magic Kingdom opened in 1971.
This lovely carousel features hand painted scenes from Cinderella. Fans love to try to grab a ride on Cinderella’s horse, which is the only horse that has a golden bow on its tail.
Which is your favorite? Cast your vote now!
