TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards Showcase The World’s Best Amusement Parks And Water Parks

The Magic Kingdom Ranks #3 in Top Parks to Visit

The Magic Kingdom Ranks #3 in Top Parks to Visit

TripAdvisor®, the travel site that helps you find the latest reviews and lowest prices, today announced the winners of its Travelers’ Choice® awards for Amusement Parks and Water Parks. Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for amusement parks and water parks worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period. 

“The Travelers’ Choice award-winning parks deliver thrill-filled excitement and splashy entertainment for those travelers seeking ideas for where to go for summer fun,” said Brooke Ferencsik, senior director of communications for TripAdvisor. “The best part is that TripAdvisor allows travelers to discover the most popular rides, book admission and even purchase skip-the-line tickets so they can get to the fun faster.”

Repeat Faves: Universal’s Islands of Adventure & Siam Park Are Tops Again

For the third year in a row, Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando is the World #1 for Amusement Parks. The park comprises eight individually themed islands. Siam Park, a Thai-themed aquatic paradise, tops the Water Parks list for the fourth consecutive year.

Top 10 Amusement Parks in the U.S.:

   1. Universal’s Islands of Adventure – Orlando, Florida

Adventures at this perennial winner include favorites from Dr. Seuss to Harry Potter. According to a TripAdvisor reviewer, “Universal’s Islands of Adventure is exactly what you need when looking for thrills and excitement, with everything from roller coasters to simple rides.” Travelers can buy the Universal Orlando 3-Park Ticket on TripAdvisor for $279 offering unlimited admission to three Universal parks over seven consecutive days.

   2. Discovery Cove – Orlando, Florida

Discovery Cove’s all-day, all-inclusive experience offers relaxation, adventure and exploration in an ocean paradise. One TripAdvisor reviewer raved, “After the hustle and bustle of all the other parks and rubbing shoulders with crowds, the peace and quiet here is unreal.”

   3. Magic Kingdom – Orlando, Florida

This American classic still enchants visitors who want to see Cinderella’s Castle and meet Mickey, Minnie and other beloved characters. “Revisit your childhood or watch the magic in your kids’ eyes with a trip to the most magical place on earth,” a TripAdvisor reviewer recommended. 

   4. Universal Studios Hollywood – Los Angeles, California

You can go behind the cinematic scenes on Universal Studios Hollywood’s legendary backlot tour, then go into the movies on one of the thrilling movie rides, from Harry Potter to Jurassic Park. A TripAdvisor reviewer noted, “We didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to be one of our favorite days: We met Homer Simpson, the Minions and a velociraptor!” Visitors who buy Skip the Line: Front of Line Pass at Universal Studios Hollywood for $179 on TripAdvisor will receive priority access and will not have to wait more than 15 minutes for any ride, show or attraction.

   5. Universal Studios Florida – Orlando, Florida

At Universal Studios Florida, travelers can costar with Jimmy Fallon, King Kong or the Simpsons on interactive rides covering popular films and television shows. “Our group ranged from 25 to 72 years, and we all had a fabulous time; there are rides for all ages and every taste,” commented a TripAdvisor reviewer. Travelers can use the Universal Orlando 2-Park Ticket for $214 on TripAdvisor to visit Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.

   6. Epcot – Orlando, Florida

Travelers can take a trip around the world and into the future at Epcot, where the rides, shows and displays mix education with excitement. For one TripAdvisor reviewer, Epcot was “a one-of-a-kind experience to meet and converse with people from all over the world in one place at one time.”

  7. Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Orlando, Florida

Animal Kingdom showcases Walt Disney’s love of nature and belief in conservation with elaborate displays and exciting rides, including Pandora, the brand-new Avatar adventure. According to one TripAdvisor reviewer, it’s not only an “awesome place to have fun for kids, but this place made feel like a kid again.”

   8. SeaWorld Orlando – Orlando, Florida

SeaWorld Orlando features Orlando’s longest, tallest and fastest roller coaster among many exciting rides and adventures. A TripAdvisor reviewer noted that SeaWorld offers “excellent rides, excellent shows, manageable wait times and good food—a great place for all the family.” 

   9. Disney California Adventure Park – Anaheim, California

Celebrate the history, geography and filmography of the Golden State at Disney’s California Adventure, where travelers go strolling on the boardwalk and “Screamin'” on the roller coaster. A TripAdvisor reviewer commented, “The park is beautifully themed, depicting various scenery typical to California, with rides that cater to both children and thrill-seekers.”

   10. Disneyland Park – Anaheim, California

The “Happiest Place on Earth,” built in 1955, remains a classic park, drawing visitors hoping to relive childhood memories or experience modern thrills. One TripAdvisor reviewer advised, “There’s always something new or different to experience, or even something we missed on a previous visit. Wear your favorite mouse ears and enjoy the show!”

Calling Young Changemakers for a Disney Be Inspired ‘Summer of Service’ Grant!

Disney Be Inspired 'Summer of Service'

Disney Be Inspired ‘Summer of Service’

Youth Service America (YSA) and The Walt Disney Company, including Disney|ABC Television Group, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media, and Walt Disney Studios, are working together this summer to inspire kids and families to make a positive impact in their communities through the Disney Summer of Service campaign. Youth can use fun summer activities — like sports, arts, reading, and being outdoors — to join Disney in a movement to make the world healthier, greener, and stronger. Kids who volunteer — with their friends or family, or on their own — can apply for a $500 Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service grant to create a project or expand an existing project throughout the rest of the year.

Youth, ages 5-18, in the U.S. can visit YSA.org/BeInspired to tell their volunteer story, get inspiration and planning resources, and apply for a Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service grant. 250 youth-led service projects will be selected to receive a $500 grant that will be awarded to each sponsoring organization in support of that project. Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2017, and select grantees may have a chance to be recognized by Disney|ABC Television Group or their local ABC affiliate.

 

Additionally, Disney is providing 26 organizations with grants to create or expand volunteer opportunities for youth during the summer months.

“Children and youth possess unique perspectives, creativity, energy, and idealism,” said Steven A. Culbertson, President and CEO of YSA. “The Disney Summer of Service campaign harnesses these strengths and invests in young people as they change the world, one project at a time.”

Examples of 2016 grant-awarded projects include:

  • Splish Splash, led by a 13-year-old in Clayton, Missouri, engages experienced youth swimmers to teach swimming to and form friendships with kids with autism.
  • Hack Night, created by a 17-year-old in New York, is an initiative to introduce middle and high school students in underprivileged communities to the computer science industry through panels, workshops, and demos of software development projects.
  • Peace, Love, and Chess, organized by a 12-year-old in Sturgis, South Dakota, aims to build a supportive learning community based on love of chess, composed of students who might not normally know each other or socialize together.
  • Make Good Decisions Soccer Game, an effort of a 16-year-old and his teammates from Carmel, Indiana, uses soccer to raise awareness about the dangers of underage drinking.

“The Disney Summer of Service campaign exemplifies our company’s long-term commitment to strengthening communities, through volunteer service. We hope that this effort will inspire young people to help others and create a brighter tomorrow,” said Kevin Callahan, Vice President, Corporate Citizenship of The Walt Disney Company.

Packed with animatronic features that embody Lightning’s supercharged personality, Sphero’s Ultimate Lightning McQueen features hybrid performance specs including driving, drifting, racing and reactive touch, allowing fans to connect with the character like never before.

“From the beginning, we wanted to make Ultimate Lightning McQueen feel as real as he does in the film,” said Paul Berberian, CEO of Sphero. “In order to create a scaled down version of his big personality, we worked closely with the team at Pixar to ensure we were getting his nuances just right – such as leaning into turns and expressive facial and body movements.”

Fans can hit the gas with Ultimate Lightning McQueen by simply connecting to the car’s app (available on iOS and Android devices) and watch him respond to commands. With animated eyes, an animatronic mouth, and emotive suspension, users will train for their next big race by playing games and experiencing other interactive features. When not in training mode, users can relax while watching Disney•Pixar’s “Cars with Ultimate Lightning McQueen in “Watch With Me” mode, where he reacts to the movie in real-time.

Driving     Emotive suspension allows Ultimate Lightning McQueen to move like a champion
Drifting     Drift and do donuts Ultimate Lightning McQueen-style with authentic movement
Reactive Touch     Master Ultimate Lightning McQueen’s latest moves with a simple tap

Acting Studio     Build custom scripts that bring existing animations to life
       

“Sphero continues to delight fans with their incredibly lifelike replications of our favorite characters,” said Josh Silverman, Executive Vice President, Global Licensing, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “With Ultimate Lightning McQueen, “Cars” fans and families of all ages can interact with the character in a whole new way and experience the “Cars” story through technologies that weren’t even imaginable ten years ago.”

Under The Hood:

       

6 Motors

    One controlling the animatronic mouth, two for emotive suspension, two for the front tires and one for steering
5 Capacitive Touch Panels     Ultimate Lightning McQueen will physically respond to a tap on his roof, hood, both side doors and his rear window

    Bluetooth Smart and WiFi allow for updates and app control, while the main processor controls the eye animations and more
Custom- Built Trapezoidal Screen     Ultimate Lightning McQueen’s windshield eyes are actually an LCD screen, allowing for live animation renders
Automatic Head and Tail Lights     Ambient light sensor allows the front and rear LEDs to adjust based on the light in the room

Versatile Tires

    The tire materials allow Ultimate Lightning McQueen to drift on hard surfaces, average carpet conditions and at slow speeds
Custom Speaker and Speaker Box Design     Ultimate Lightning McQueen’s integrated speaker system creates crystal clear audio
Custom-Built Animations     Sphero created custom animations to make Ultimate Lightning McQueen’s eyes as emotive as the character in the movie
