2011 Theme Park Insider Tournament preview: ESPN The Weekend vs. Star Wars Weekends
Written by Robert Niles
We're sticking with the Walt Disney World Resort for the next match-up in the 2011 Theme Park Insider Tournament: America's Best Theme Park Event. This time, we're setting Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios up against the just-concluded ESPN: The Weekend, which also takes place at the same park.Tweet

The emphasis at both events is seeing celebrities: the Star Wars characters and actors at that event, and the ESPN personalities and pro athletes at the other. Disney offers meet-n-greets and interactions, as well shows and performances, at both events. So, ultimately, it's a question of which do you like better: Star Wars, or sports?
We'll vote on the match-up starting at noon Eastern Time tomorrow (Tuesday). Until then, the comments are open for your observations, trip reports, impressions or just two-bit opinions about these events.
Update: Time to vote!
