My personal favorite hotel is Royal Pacific Resort. Wish it could get some more votes.

Royal Pacific is nice and so is Portofino, but the Hard Rock is where the fun is at... Fourth year in a row for us on July 24th.

Anyone surprised Be Our Guest is not nominated for Best Restaurant?

Portofino Hotel Resort...Perfection.

In light of the recent refurb and updating of the Timber Mountain Log Ride at Knott's Berry Farm, maybe next year you could include a category for best ride refurbishment. Although it wouldn't be easy based on existing reader ratings to determine that.

Shouldn't Antarctica be listed as a choice?

Outlaw Run, baby! It is top dawg, fo'sho'! (Although Mystic Manor does look pretty swell...)

Where's Bay Lake Tower? :-( If I could vote for it, I'd give it a 12! It was absolutely wonderful, and I'd live there if I could! (Maybe someday when I win the lottery...)

What about Antarctica or Iron Rattler?

How do you vote for best theme park??
From Robert Niles on June 29, 2013 at 3:59 PM
I didn't list Antarctica, because it's so far back at this point that it really doesn't have a prayer of winning. Iron Rattler technically was a refurb, though the point about doing an award for that is well taken.

And votes for individual attractions and restaurants will determine the overall best park winner. FWIW, there's a clear winner there already, though I won't mention it before next week. :^)

Just as long as Antarctica at least gets a chance in the Tournament next year, I'll be fine with the omission for best new ride.

Let me guess... Best theme park is Tokyo DisneySea. We are on Theme Park Insider after all, hahaha.

I'm back here rootin' for Islands of Adventure and Epcot!

Along with the ride refurbishment category being added,

Perhaps splintering the restuarant aspect to have a bar group....for the likes of Finnegans and Rose & Crown, Duff Gardens and others
