This week's Theme Park Apprentice vote: Themed restaurants
Theme Park Insider reader Tim W has started up a game for other readers, on our Discussion Board. This one's called Theme Park Apprentice
, and the format should be familiar to anyone who's seen a particular TV show. :-)
Several readers have submitted concepts in response to the first challenge, and now it is time for you to select a winner. Or, more accurately, to pick a loser who'll be voted off "the team."
This week's challenge is to create a theme restaurant. Here are your contestants (you can read their full proposals on the discussion board - scroll down):
Anthony Murphy: Tiana's at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Amanda Jenkins: Country Side at the American Adventure Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase
David L.: Dinner at Broadway at DHS or Disney's California Adventure
Nick Markham: Shrek the Musical Dinner Show in the Castle Theater at Universal Studios Hollywood
Dan Babbitt: Sunset Grande Ballroom Restaurant inside the Tower of Terror at DHS
Kevin Smith: Seven Seas Dining Experience at Walt Disney World
Wok Creative: TV Dinner - Live at DHS and DCA
The person with the fewest votes will be eliminated from the competition. Or maybe s/he will get a pardon this week, thanks to a no-show.
I think somebody was already fired due to them not showing up! Still, I am interested in seeing how we do with the TPI public!
Yup Joshua was fired for not posting in time. i will be looking at the poll results as well as reader comments for the next challenge. This poll is just for fun to see how well people liked your guys' ideas.
A DQ is not a proper firing. Let's put one of the rest of you out! :-)
Ouch. I completely forgot about this contest. I've been burdened down - two academic conferences this week. Yikes.
Interesting results so far!
Fun contest! Wish I was paying attention when started up. All great ideas that I would add a reservation to on my next theme park vacation. I voted for the Seven Seas plan. Maybe tweek the idea by changing it to a cook your own in the center of the table? A place at the American Adventure would be great and is needed for sure. Note sure about the business attire though. 94 degrees with 98% humidity at 5:00 PM May through September might make that hard to pull off, especially for guest not having a hopper pass and staying the entire day in EPCOT? I look forward to seeing the entries in the rest of the contest.
Yea really wish we would have had more participation, but with a game like this i was willing to take what i got. And really didn't want to delay stuff much longer. If joshua posts tonight we will just count this round as practice and move forward with next weeks challenge while adding in a shops cattegory the following week.
LOL!!! I knew I would not come even close to most of you. I completely forgot to place a show in mine. Oh well. I think I was still in adult mode from our last trip without the kids.
I've been getting my butt kicked at work trying to get things advanced prior to my WDW trip next month, so I (sadly) have not had much time for TPI. Anyway, all of your ideas are excellent, and no one should get fired. Can I vote for "All Of The Above"?
I put it at DHS because Disneyland already has the Blue Bayou (which, I know, is not the same, but similar enough in my mind).
Plus Anthony, the buildings at DHS look more like what Tiana had in the movie. It was just a large "studio" like building. I really liked your idea. Having family in Lousiana, that know how to cook, I would like to see your restaurant come about. Oh those beignets...they are calling to me.
