RULES AND INFORMATION

There will be four divisions, each with 16 table service restaurants and one category of 32 counter service restaurants.

The divisions are as follows:

1. Resort/Downtown Disney Restaurants (16)
2. Character/Show Dining (16)
3. Signature Dining (16)
4. Theme Park Restaurants (16)
5. Counter Service Restaurants (32)

Every week, I'll put up 6 new polls, one from each bracket (2 from counter service restaurants), in which people can vote for their favourite restaurant in a given match up. After the week is over one restaurant of the two in each match up will be eliminated and the winning restaurant will go to the next round.

Basic guidelines for voting are as follows:
1. You are voting not only on food, but also overall experience including price, service, location, etc..
2. If you have been to both of the competing restaurants your vote can be worth 2 votes.
3. If you have not been to both restaurants your vote is worth 1 vote.


For example round one will feature the number 1 seed in each category versus the number 16th seed. 2 vs. 15, 3 vs. 14, etc…

Finally I'll admit I stole this idea from another podcast,…shout out to disdads! They had around 32 votes each time. With the traffic on Dis boards, I'm sure we can do a lot better!

This is going to be a GREAT THREAD! Now that I'm looking at your lists I can see this is going to be hard.

I think that you got them all pretty much right. I might argue for a few changes in the order in the top 5 of a few lists, BUT everyone in the top 6 deserves to be there.

Great job.

p.s. For argument sake I would say Pecos Bill should be higher, and The flaming tree should be #1. The food is Great and I love the dining area.

I think the problem with this is that people will vote even when they have only tried one restaurant in the poll. They will vote it the best without having tried the other. It would be great if there was a way to distinguish that.

Oh and Wolfgang Puck Cafe is not signature. That would be Wolfgang Puck The Dining Room that is signature. The cafe should be in same category as Ragland Road.

Sounds fun, but I agree - it would be hard for example off me to vote on CS when I've only been to a few - we are mostly TS and snack eaters!
