A Shocking Result? Revenge of the Yeti!

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?

  • 2013
    Expedition Everest
    Kilimanjaro Safaris (-1)
  • 2014
    Expedition Everest
    Kilimanjaro Safaris (-4)
  • 2015
    Expedition Everest
    Kilimanjaro Safaris (-9)
  • 2016
    Kilimanjaro Safaris
    Expedition Everest (-4)
  • 2017
    Expedition Everest
    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.

Round 1
Round 2

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!
