Can I tell you what I liked most about this week’s tournament? Consistency. What do I mean? Simply that 2015’s “Final Four” attractions comprised last year’s finale as well.
Yesterday, my friends, we witnessed a four-attraction re-match! And, what an epic Epcot “battle” it was!
In my opinion, in total, this entire three-day “competition” was phenomenal! Proving that Epcot is loaded with a collection of evenly-matched, top-shelf, stand-out attractions, any one of FIVE experiences had a real chance to win it all!
Now, here’s one of the things I loved about yesterday’s finale … up to virtually the very last minute, it was a dead tie between our Top 3 finishers! In fact, I went to sleep last night with no idea whatsoever of what I’d be writing this morning!
Would it be a “repeat” victory for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival? No. I knew that my food-fest was running solidly in fourth place and was out.
But, would it be a second win for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth? Maybe. It was in the hunt. Spaceship Earth, on the other hand, at one point yesterday morning, held a bit of a lead over everyone. Could it sneak to victory? Hmm.
No. It was Soarin’ that squeezed out a narrow two-vote victory when all was said and done!
So, let me describe what I really love about our annual Epcot polls. All in WDW has run these “competitions” for the last three years.
In Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Expedition Everest holds a three-year-long chokehold on that park’s title. In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror has “three-peated” its way into our hearts.
When it comes to Epcot, as evidenced by yesterday’s finale, anything can win!
Fans, in 2013, we “crowned” IllumiNations. In 2014, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival took the prize. This year? Well … Soarin’? You are now the “king”! You are the 2015 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Epcot Attraction!
