Who amongst you remembers last year’s Moderate “competition”?
Actually held at the very end of December 2012, I ran that poll a bit differently than the one you, so phenomenally, supported yesterday. In the end, that “tournament” of voting came down to only two finalists.
It was a “civil war” between the Disney Port Orleans “sister” resorts won by the “French” half of, what obviously is, our favorite Moderate complex. In late 2012, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter dominated by accumulating 60% of your support.
Yesterday, while racking up a whopping 133 total votes, amidst a back-n-forth, three-way battle with my poor, under-appreciated Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and with a minuscule one-vote victory, you unseated WDW’s ode to New Orleans.
Yes, by the slimmest of margins, you appointed Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside as the NEW All in WDW Readers’ Favorite WDW Moderate Resort!
Originally named Disney’s Dixie Landings Resort, and opened on February 2, 1992, Riverside is themed to look like the Old Antebellum (during the time before the American Civil War) South. With over 2,000 rooms, there’s plenty of space for all of us!
Congratulations, Riverside. You are our first NEW champion of 2014!
