    The ride in DCA was specifically singled out in the article as the one winning the award. The ride doesn't exist in a vacuum, it's part of DCA so DCA has won an award.

    It's not like the title of this tread said< "DCA in it's original version wins an award so we should stop the changes and leave it as is."

    We get it, you're not a fan of DCA. Well done.

    I'm gonna post something a little later about how cute my dog was...would you like to post a comment about how he is dead now and no longer cute to spoil that fun too?
    Exactly..

    Not true. It depends on what aspect of the song won the award. If the award was for best lyrics, then the writers would get the award. When an artist gets an award, they themselves go up onto the stage to recive it.

    To relate this to DCA, for the imagineers to get the award, it would have had to be an award for the best design team.

    I actually disagree with that. Although not everyone on this board is a fan of DCA, I actually think there is a little more that is worth a visit to DCA. California Screamin, Soarin, The Tower of Terror, Monster's Inc: Mike and Sulley to the Rescue, (IMO) the Animation Building, the Aladdin show, and so forth. Do some of them fit the theme? Not really, but hey, I enjoy some of those rides personally.
    Exactly, there is so much more at DCA that is deserving, especially Soarin Over California.

We have BLAB right across the way, the only attraction theme to ever cross into multiple parks at a resort. Quite frankly I think a child could have come up with something more original and mentally stimulating then that. It shows how low we have come as a society when the true ability of Disney isn't being explored anymore and we are giving out awards for it. Don't get me wrong, the attraction is fun but not worthy of an award.

    Yes, there are many attractions that have a similar novelty. Off the top of my head we have Men In Black Alien Attack and The Amazing Aventures of Spider Man, there are many more for sure.
    Seawolf, I've never been on Spider-Man, but I have seen footage of it, and it was the first of it's kind. If Disney did anything, they took the concept, made it a little tamer, and made it interactive for families, so you are right that it only took someone else's concept.

    As for this award...meh. Not a big deal for me. These awards from these magazines are really bogus; you are ALWAYS going to find a theme park (regional or international) who always has better "anything" so why bother? But that doesn't mean Disney can't improve because they can.

    Maybe because our's is the original one? That's the only thing I can think of. Plus I'm glad that DLR got the recognition, instead of WDW, for a change.


    EDIT: It's still not working for me. :judge:

    Just to toss a little gasoline on the fire...

    http://micechat.com/forums/disneylan...its-crown.html

    My questions will now be put to the test thanks to the submission of your thread timba!

    Will the competition's voting system be called into question? Will the merits of the award be called into question? Will individuals cite every reason imaginable as to why this award should not count? Or will it be accepted at face value because Disney won and per the article has won in the past as well?

    It might help if the title of the topic said - Midway Mania wins a "TEA" Award
