Vote for your favorite Walt Disney World attractions in our first ever KennythePirate Attractions Tournament! We are voting on “classic” Walt Disney World attractions now, so come cast your vote and see which attraction won yesterday!
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 attractions:
- 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.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant was Game 1’s winner and will advance to the next round!
Walt Disney World Classics
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.
Cast your Vote Now for Round 1 Game 2
Today we’ll see two new classics go head to head: Pirates of the Caribbean and Swiss Family Treehouse, both located in the Magic Kingdom.
Pirates of the Caribbean is a dark ride, located in Adventureland. Guests board a boat and journey through a pirate story, complete with voyages, troubles, and exploits.
The ride made its debut in Magic Kingdom on December 15, 1973.
Pirates of the Caribbean is designed to replicate pirate adventures in the Caribbean Sea in the 17th and 18th centuries. The ride gave rise to the song “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me),” which is arguably one of the greatest Disney attraction songs in history.
Swiss Family Treehouse is an interactive attraction located in Adventureland. It was one of the original attractions on the opening day of the Magic Kingdom in 1971.
The treehouse is modeled after the film Swiss Family Robinson, and features a large tree, which serves as the living quarters of the famous adventurers.
If you plan to climb to the top of this fun treehouse, you’ll need to climb 116 stairs, but you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view!
