Vote for your favorite Walt Disney World attractions in our first ever KennythePirate Attractions Tournament! We are voting on round 3’s “classics” bracket of the tournament 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.
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. We’re working to find the ultimate “classic” attraction in this category!
Some attractions fit in more than one category, so we selected what we felt was the most appropriate category.
Frozen Ever After was yesterday’s winner and will advance to round 3!
Walt Disney World Classics
We are now working our way through round 3’s 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 3 Game 1
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.
Peter Pan’s Flight
Peter Pan’s Flight is located in Fantasyland, and it is a beloved favorite of both children and adults. The wait time for this attraction regularly tops an hour or more, but that doesn’t stop Guests from waiting!
The attraction, which opened October 3, 1971, has you board a pirate ship, where you’ll fly over Neverland and catch a view of Peter Pan, mermaids, pirates, and even Tinkerbell!
Which is your favorite? Cast your vote now!
