Our last match before the quarterfinals of the 2011 Theme Park Insider Tournament: America's Best Theme Park Event pits Walt Disney World's "hard ticket" Christmas event against rival Universal Orlando's annual Christian music festival.

Which event would you like to advance to the final eight in this year's tournament? You get one vote, but you are encouraged to try to multiply that by convincing other readers with your impressions about these events, in the comments. Or, you can just troll for votes in your Facebook feed. ;^)

Voting will be open until noon (ET) Wednesday. We'll take a break tomorrow while I set the bracket, then the quarterfinals will begin on Thursday.

Do you have a bracket for this that we can see all of them?

The bracket is reseeded after each round, based on the number of votes each event got in that previous round. So I'll announce the quarterfinal match-ups after this vote is over tomorrow.

I am sorry if I missed something, but why are we voting on park events again? I thought we were supposed to do attractions?

Nick -

We've done three years of attraction tournaments, plus we have the top attractions based on internal voting posted on the right. Seems kinda redundant to have another attraction tournament.
