Published: March 22, 2010 at 8:45 AMAs much as I respect Walt Disney and love history, this was an easy vote for Tiki Room. Old and cheesy though it is, I always leave with a smile on my face. It is just one of those simple pleasures in life.

I give this to One Man's Dream, hands-down. It could be the best theme park exhibit around, and it's enthralling for someone like myself who is pursuing a career in theme park engineering.
Everything is done very well. The interior is very aesthetically pleasing and gives off a creative vibe, much the same way Walt's updated Burbank studio did back in the day. The transition from early life to animation to theme parks is seamless, the models are beautiful, and the movie packs just the right amount of nostalgic Disney sap.
How this can lose to the Tiki Room is beyond me (and yes, I have experienced the Disneyland version).
