The Ultimate Disney Parks Attraction Bracket -- Round Two, Day Fourteen
How about a nice, juicy apple?
You know the best part about the summer in Phoenix, Arizona?
…no, seriously, I’m asking. What is the best part? Is there a best part? Because I can’t think of one. No, I just take solace in the chaos spread by brackets like this one on a day-to-day basis, no matter what time of year it is.
And with that in mind, it’s time for us to dive into four more matchups in the second round of the Ultimate Disney Parks Attraction bracket. Let’s go!
(4) Muppet*Vision 3D vs. (29) Mickey’s Fun Wheel: One of the easiest matchups of the round, no? Muppet*Vision 3D for the victory. I should not have to explain why.
Mickey’s Fun Wheel
(13) Fantasmic (WDW) vs. (20) Snow White’s Scary Adventures: I imagine this will be a little tougher, and though I enjoy the original Snow White dark ride, it’s got to be Fantasmic. It’s not just that you can actually see Fantasmic in one of the theme parks right now (the Disneyland version remains closed through Labor Day, and likely beyond that), but there’s just so much more to be dazzled by in the nighttime show.
What do you think?
Snow White’s Scary Adventures
(5) Toy Story Midway Mania (DCA) vs. (28) Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride (WDW): So, I know there are still some folks out there who nurse a grudge about the fact that Mr. Toad got evicted from the Magic Kingdom in Orlando. As noted before, I am not one of those people — I know Mr. Toad from Disneyland (and of course the movie inspired by the Kenneth Grahame book), and he’s doing just fine there. With that in mind, I’m going to give this one to the Toy Story ride in Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure. Yes, there’s another version of it at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, so it’s not unique, but man, is it fun. Always a joy to have the high score in the ride vehicle.
What do you think should win?
Toy Story Midway Mania (DCA)
Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride (WDW)
(12) Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout vs. (21) Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid: I know that the Guardians ride is going to win this one, and yet, if you have paid any modicum of attention to the newsletters to date, you know I am going to vote against it. It’s basically on principle! I like the first two movies! (I will be watching the third one when it arrives on Disney+, not for any reason aside from just not getting around to it in theaters.) But I miss the Tower of Terror.
Basically, just as there are people who nurse a grudge about the loss of Mr. Toad from the Magic Kingdom, I nurse a grudge against the Guardians for booting out Rod Serling from Disney California Adventure.
But that’s me. What do you think?
