Vote for your favorite Walt Disney World attractions in our first ever KennythePirate Attractions Tournament! We’ve made it to Round 2 and 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.
Wow, yesterday was a close one! Mad Tea Party came out on top and will advance to round 2!
Walt Disney World Classics
Round 2 looks back at the winners from Walt Disney World “classic” attractions bracket.
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!
Round 2 Game 1
Our first game in round 2 puts Dumbo The Flying Elephant up against Pirates of the Caribbean.
Dumbo The Flying Elephant
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.
Pirates of the Caribbean
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.
Which is your favorite? Cast your vote now!
