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!”
Be sure to check out Kenny’s Character Locator for detailed information on attractions and so much more!
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.
Yesterday’s challenge was probably the hardest one yet, with two beloved classics going head to head. I had an impossible time choosing myself. The winner of Game 4 was Peter Pan’s Flight!
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.
Round 1 Game 5
Today we’ll see two more classics go head to head: its a small world, and Liberty Square Riverboat. Both attractions are located in Magic Kingdom.
its a small world is a classic ride, first designed for the World’s Fair. It is one of the day attractions that was available to Guests on Magic Kingdom’s opening day.
The attraction features the beloved anthem “its a small world,” and is a gentle, 10 minute boat ride around the world. Featuring singing animatronic dolls, “the happiest cruise that ever sailed” is beloved by children and adults alike.
Liberty Square Riverboat, located in Liberty Square, is an authentic steam-powered paddle wheel boat. It first opened to guests in October 1971, and is 17 minute nostalgic trip to the past.
Aboard this river cruise, you can listen to author Mark Twain share memories of his time on the Mississippi River.
