The results are in! Over 250 people placed their votes and helped determine which resorts are moving on to the Sweet Sixteen. The other 16 will forever languish in the inaugural WDW Resort Tournament Trash Heap. Before we reveal the full results, let’s look at a few particular matchups.

Closest Matchup

#14 Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House vs #19 Polynesian Villas + Bungalows

Jambo vs. Poly Villas + Bungalows was a hotly contested matchup. With a late surge, Jambo took the win and edged out the view-blocking Bungalows 57.6% to 42.4%.

Biggest Blowout

#2 Riviera Resort vs #31 All-Star Sports

Riviera Resort vs All-Star Sports just wasn’t even close. But maybe it’s remarkable that anyone voted for the All-Star in this matchup. Riviera routed the competition 91.8% to 8.2%.

Here are some hot takes from survey-takers and contributors:

  • “Picking between the beach club and the Polynesian was a harder decision than choosing where I went to college.” – Survey-taker, “C”
  • “People who didn’t vote for Saratoga should have to park in a parking garage at Disney Springs on Saturday nights only. Seriously, walkability has made Saratoga Springs such an incredible option.” – Julia Mascardo
  • “OKW vs GF in the first round is not fair. Neither is Boardwalk vs Poly. That’s a final 4 matchup!” – Survey-taker, Kyle
  • “Let’s face it, All-Star Sports might not have won if it was a play-in game against Music.” – Len Testa
