And The Survey Says... Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover

"Of these Tomorrowland attractions, which is your favorite?"

- Astro Orbiter
- Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
- Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
- Space Mountain
- Stitch's Great Escape
- Tomorrowland Speedway
- Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover
- Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress

That was the question we posed last Saturday and 21 readers (including the editor) expressed their opinion. And the survey says... the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover!
It was a very close vote throughout the week with the TTA edging our another timeless classic, Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress. The vote came in as follows: Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover with 9 votes (42%), Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress with 7 votes (33%), Space Mountain with 3 votes (14%) and Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin with 2 votes (9%). The other four attractions garnered no votes.

It was great to see two classic attractions honored, especially when competing with a few others that offer a few more thrills and excitement. I suppose this says that you simply cannot discount the quality of the Carousel of Progress or the peacefulness of the Peoplemover. Each time I am in Tomorrowland I visit each; sometimes multiple times. With the Carousel it is a way of honoring the memory and genius of Walt Disney, knowing that he was personally involved in its creation and development. The Peoplemover is a way to relax and catch up with friends, as it is a favorite of many Disney aficionados.

Oh, and my vote, the WEDWay Peoplemover (a.k.a. Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover) celebrating its 35th Anniversary this past July 1st.

Now let's turn our attention to Epcot. We'll get to the attractions and countries in the weeks to come, but first, let's consider the festivals. This weeks poll will be a simple one in that there is only three items to choose from. The question is, "Which is your favorite special event held in Epcot?" The choices are the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, Epcot International Food and Wine Festival or Holidays Around the World - Candlelight Processional.

Be sure to cast a vote for your favorite, and as always, you're invited to post a comment and let us know why a particular festival is your favorite.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned, there is more to follow.
