After our heaviest voting yet (an average of 335 votes per group in Round 3! Wow!), here we are! The “Final Four”!
You guys have been unbelievable this week! Thank you very much. We ended up with 584 page views yesterday and 670 total votes cast. Two more new countries stopped by to visit and vote. And, all of that effort brings us to the fateful day where you will name the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Magic Kingdom Attraction. Are you ready? Don’t tire out yet. We have one more day of epic voting left. Oh, and it’s Friday! Yay! The best day of the week! There, that should energize you.
I saw one Tweet yesterday that said, ‘I can’t believe …
… Space Mountain is 3rd!’ I think that just about sums up the strength of the competition in Round 3 as well as the difficulty of our choices. Well, Space, you were oh, so close, but, in the end, you fell to the “thunder”. I don’t know if you saw it, but I did comment on yesterday’s post that, “Thunder HAS done better than I expected.”
I also added that, “I’m not sure if this will be true for a lot of the poll voters, but I can tell you my problem with Space. I used to really enjoy that ride, but, as I’ve grown older, it has just become too physically taxing. It isn’t a roller-coaster “thing” either as I still love (and ride) Everest and Rock ‘n Roller. Space just throws me around too much, it seems. Maybe the voters are working that into their votes.”
What do you think, fans? Is that it? Is it the bumps and bruises dealt out by Space Mountain that ‘did it in’?
So, this is what happens next – just like the polls we ran weeks and months ago to elect our favorite attractions in Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom, the winner of this bracket becomes our champion. The runner-up isn’t ‘dead’ yet, however. The Top 2 attractions that we elect today will return in the near future to face-off against:
- IllumiNations – Reflections of Earth
- Spaceship Earth
- Tower of Terror
- Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
- Expedition Everest
- Kilimanjaro Safaris
One of these eight attractions will, then, be named the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite WDW Attraction. Until then, we’ve got one more day of work to do. We need a Magic Kingdom champion! Get voting!! Let’s do ‘it’ one more time!!!
