Gonna need the Mercy Rule for this one, I think.

Well Circle of Life was a nice air conditioned place to wait for our Test Track fastpasses to become available to use. Also, my dad and I had fun joking about how Disney was playing both sides of the field, as Universe of Energy took the positions of dams are good and Circle of Life clearly indicated dams are bad. Other than that... I think think the results will speak for themselves. PhilharMagic is a fun 3D/4D movie, taking the best Disney songs, combining them with a huge screen and cool in theater effects. The animation is sometimes a bit lacking, but otherwise this is an outstanding theme park movie.

Also gotta side with James here. This is a mercy rule situation. I'd bet good money this will be the biggest blowout of the tournament.

No disrespect to the King but the mouse has got this wrapped up start to finish.

Mickey's PhilharMagic is totaly entertaining. From the music. 3d and the cast of characters. Including my favorite D. Duck. Circle of life is just plain boring.

Typical 1 vs. 16 match-up. PhilharMagic is lots of fun and should reach the final with no problem.

In this round, voting against PhilharMagic is like betting against the Globetrotters.

On a side note, only after writing "PhilharMagic" does one realize how idiotic a name that is for an attraction.
