Post “Game” Analysis: Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Every “game” has it’s excruciatingly-detailed post “game” analysis, eh?

Why did Russell Wilson throw four interceptions this past weekend?  How did the Seahawks win their big game against the Packers anyway?

Where were the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday?  Did New England’s dastardly Patriots intentionally deflate the footballs used in the game in order to cheat Indy out of a fair chance to win?

How in “The World” did Expedition Everest beat Kilimanjaro Safaris again?  Or, did it?  Huh?

Kilimanjaro

Well, below, I present a brief look inside the numbers of our just-completed “tournament” to crown the All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Disney’s Animal Kingdom Attraction.  Here’s our post “game” analysis …

As voted by you this past Sunday, the FINAL Top 4 were:

  1. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
  2. Kilimanjaro Safaris
  3. Festival of the Lion King
  4. Kali River Rapids

But, even though Everest conquered Safaris by nine votes in that head-to-head competition, here’s the Final Four if we were to list them by overall vote totals received for the entire competition:

  1. Kilimanjaro Safaris (153 votes)
  2. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain (152)
  3. DINOSAUR (82)
  4. Festival of the Lion King (53)

An all-too-slim triumph for the zebras and giraffes?  Hmm.  These two attractions are “too close to call”.

And, look at DINOSAUR!  Our 5th place finisher, it didn’t even make our official Final Four grouping.  Yet, it defeats our 3rd Place finisher, Festival of the Lion King, by a whopping 29 votes!

How have our Finalists changed over the years?  Take a look:

2013

  1. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
  2. Kilimanjaro Safaris
  3. Festival of the Lion King
  4. Finding Nemo – The Musical

2014

  1. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
  2. Kilimanjaro Safaris
  3. Finding Nemo – The Musical
  4. DINOSAUR

2015

  1. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
  2. Kilimanjaro Safaris
  3. Festival of the Lion King
  4. Kali River Rapids

Finally, are your friends asking you for a recommendation as to what attractions to focus their time on when they visit WDW’s “kingdom of beasts”?  Well, here’s our “new” Top 10.  Tell them to use this list as a guide:

  1. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
  2. Kilimanjaro Safaris
  3. Festival of the Lion King
  4. Kali River Rapids
  5. DINOSAUR
  6. Finding Nemo – The Musical
  7. Maharajah Jungle Trek
  8. It’s Tough to be a Bug!
  9. Flights of Wonder
  10. The Boneyard

If they spend their day at any of the above, they’ll likely be on the right track!

Thanks, again, for all your support, my friends!  I appreciate all of your participation and votes!  Next up?  Whatever’s left in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Oof.  That ought to be a challenge.
