Interesting choices - Universal's innovation and constant strive to change gave them a boost for best new attraction and restaurant, and Disney's return to its glory days secured the best park.
Disney - 12 pointsUniversal - 10 pointsBusch Gardens - 1 pointHard Rock Park - 1 point
I was hoping to see some smaller venues measure up, but I can't say I'm disappointed with the results. The Simpsons Ride was excellent, Mythos is great, AK Lodge is breathtaking, and Disneyland is always a pleasure.

I am a little sad that the Simpsons won especially since it really didn't add much in the attraction tech area. Good job Robert
I will leave the inevitable irreverent joke to others....
So happy 4th of July everyone.
I'll be locked up inside today, windows & blinds closed, lights off with just a radio to update me on any rioting in the parks.
First mention of trouble and I'm outta town to the nearest British embassy, (good ole GPS).
I fear for the SunBurnt, English flag, soccer Jersey wearing tourist that will frequent the parks today, unaware of the patriotism that flows through Americans blood (Along with an unhealthy stream of cracker barrel fat).Ah, to be oblivious again.
Be safe out there people ;)
American Adventure anybody?
By the way, the real inspiration for Krusty the Clown is David Letterman. If you don't believe me, google it.
