Wow! Our furry, terrifying, Himalayan friend left no doubt, did he (she)? A resounding, uncontested victory launches Yeti back atop Animal Kingdom’s mountain (pun intended)!
Let’s review a little history, shall we?
Kilimanjaro Safaris (-1)
Kilimanjaro Safaris (-4)
Kilimanjaro Safaris (-9)
Expedition Everest (-4)
Kilimanjaro Safaris (-58)
Look at that! Prior to this weekend’s tournament, it was almost impossible to separate these two iconic attractions!
All I can say is that, after carrying the “crown” for three straight years (2013-2015), Yeti avenged its 4 vote loss in 2016 in epic fashion. What dominance! The “champ” is back!
Why do I call it a bit of a shock, however? Take a look back at this competition’s first two rounds.
I know that match-ups mean a lot, but Safaris won far more fan support than Everest in both rounds! I thought that yesterday’s finale would be just as close as ever!
I mentioned it in my Round 1 post, but I’ll be really excited to see this poll unfold next year. Pandora has to be a game-changer.
Having said that, will AVATAR break Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safaris’ stranglehold on this park’s championship? I can’t wait to find out.
In the meantime, we have a “king”. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain? You are, once again, the WDW Fans’ Favorite Animal Kingdom Attraction!
