Hollywood “versus” the Empire? VOTE for YOUR Favorite Hollywood Studios Attractions!

Good Friday, my friends!  My expectations before I started compiling options for this week’s “tournament” were that Hollywood Studios had little left to offer a Favorite Attraction poll.

Then, I consulted the Walt Disney World website.  To my surprise, I found 20 attraction and entertainment options to include in today’s 1st Round!  20!

However, as I looked closer, I discovered that 7 of those were Star Wars-related!  Nearly half?  This left me to wonder … has “Star Wars Land” opened already?  How did I miss that memo?

When it comes to those “Magnificent 7”, with the exception of a few, I really feel like I need a guidebook!  What are they?  Hmm.  Of course, we all know Star Tours – The Adventures Continue.

Star Wars Launch Bay has been around for a while now.  Been there – done that.  We’ve all seen plenty of videos of March of the First Order.

Finally, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular can even be heard from my Coronado seat at Laguna Bar!  Wow!  Star Wars has taken over the Studios!

So, the question, today, is … will it also take over our Hollywood Studios Favorite Attractions poll?  Well, we’ll have to VOTE to see!

Below, I present you with FOUR groups of FIVE attractions and entertainment options.  Your job is to VOTE for your favorite TWO attractions in each group!

That’s right, folks.  You get to cast a total of EIGHT votes today!  Which of these Hollywood icons – or Imperial infiltrators – will reign supreme?  Let’s find out!

The WDW Fans’ Favorite Magic Kingdom “Land”!

Good morning, folks!  We talked about it on the WDW Main Street Podcast on Sunday, but the results are, now, final!

Your Favorite Magic Kingdom “Land” is – drum roll please – Tomorrowland!

It was, by no means, unanimous, my friends.  Frontierland, Fantasyland, and Adventureland all laid claims to the “title”!

We’re consistent, I’ll say that much!  Back in 2013, I asked you to make the same choice.  It was the same result!

Of course, it leads me to ask … why Tomorrowland?  Is it Space Mountain?  TTA?  Buzz Lightyear?  Uh, Stitch?

For me, by comparison, the other lands have much more to offer.  Take Adventureland, for instance.  Pirates.  Jungle Cruise.  Frontierland boasts Big Thunder and Splash.

Fantasyland is relatively newly expanded and delivers Seven Dwarfs, Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, Be Our Guest Restaurant, and a host of other attractions!

So, I’m interested to hear your comments.  Why Tomorrowland?

I think we’d all agree that it is the Magic Kingdom “land” in most need of a refurb.  Yet, it seems to consistently be “all that”!

Leave us your comments @itsallinwdw on Twitter or on Facebook.  We’d love to know!

Doug, Dennis, John, and I gather at the Main Street Pub to discuss this week’s Walt Disney World news!

What is your favorite Magic Kingdom “land”?  What has me all “out of sorts”?  Well, if you know my love for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, you know what has me ‘blue’.

Join us to hear it all!

Coronado Springs

The Coronado Springs Cabanas are “History” Already?! [Poll]

Wow!  So, this is where all the action is going to happen?  Coronado’s Cabanas are already on their way out!  Can it be?

My friends, you saw my fears, regret, sadness, and overall opinion in …

The Re-Imagineering of Coronado Springs? An Opinion.

Frankly, I am alarmed to see that it is happening so fast!  What am I talking about?  Well, credit goes out to blogmickey.com.  Follow them!  Very good site!

In “Coronado Springs Cabana Demolition”, they lay it out in pictures!  The walls are up!  Some of the buildings have been gutted!  Disney does not mess around!

Coronado's Cabanas ... as they once were ...

Cabanas Close

If I felt sadness when I wrote my earlier article, it turns out that that angst was mild.  Now, I feel a bit of horror!  Wow.  Already Disney?  The shock of the announcement hasn’t even subsided yet!

For those that don’t know, Coronado Springs was formerly comprised of three sections – Casitas, Ranchos, and Cabanas.

Truthfully, we’ve never been huge fans of either the Cabanas or the Ranchos (having stayed in each only once), but to see the Cabanas get demolished.  Ugh.

Whether in All in WDW’s words or on the WDW Main Street Podcast, you’ll clearly “hear” my distress.  But, how about you, folks?

Does this inevitable progress fill you with endless excitement?  Or, like us, are you shaking your heads with sadness?

Will room prices skyrocket?  Will old favorites – like Laguna Bar – be destroyed?  Will the allure of the tower’s roof-top views be too much to deny?

Let us know your thoughts!
