2012 Best Attraction Tournament: Best Animatronic Show?
Written by Robert Niles
In honor of President Barack Obama's visit to the Magic Kingdom today, we're putting President Obama's animatronic alter ego and his electronic colleagues up against four other contenders for the title of Best Animatronic Show in the 2012 Theme Park Insider Tournament.Tweet
Yeah, I totally planned the timing this way. ;^)
Fortunate coincidences aside, this category illustrates Disney's dominance of this entertainment medium, as all five candidates come from Disney theme parks. In fact, there's an example of each at the company's flagship resort, Walt Disney World. I should note that this category does not include all attractions with animatronics. It's simply for theater shows - not rides with animatronic elements.
Campaign in the comments, or be like TH and James Rao and rally the troops via Facebook and Twitter.
