Epcot “Soars” to New Heights!

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!
