Disney continues to rack up the accolades this week! Yesterday, we reported that Disney Cruise Line was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as being the top cruise line for families and for Caribbean cruises. Today, we are excited to announce that several new experiences at Disney Parks were just honored by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). The TEA is the association that represents the themed entertainment industry.
“Our teams continue to raise the bar offering new experiences and adventures leaving guests wondering, ‘how did Disney do that?’” said Bob Chapek, Chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “We do all of this for our guests, and we’re thrilled with what they’re telling us about our new lands and attractions. These awards are one more well-deserved recognition for our cast and Imagineers.”
After six months of operation, Pandora – The World of Avatar received not one, but two, Thea Awards for Outstanding Achievement. The 12-acre land was recognized for excellence as a “Theme Park Area Development,” while Avatar Flight of Passage received its own award as an outstanding attraction – it’s no wonder that it has quickly become the highest rated guest experience at Walt Disney World Resort.
In the category of “Attraction Reimagining,” Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure was honored. This attraction was also an instant hit amongst our guests – and is now the top-rated attraction at Disneyland Resort.
“Disney Parks have a long legacy of innovation and storytelling, and our teams continue to push the boundaries from blue sky concept through opening day and beyond,” said Bob Weis, President, Walt Disney Imagineering. “I’m so proud of the Imagineers and Live Entertainment teams who are constantly working to redefine excellence and bring those next level experiences to our guests. It’s an enormous team effort.”
Rounding out the Thea Awards honors is Frozen Ever After at Walt Disney World, which also received recognition in the “Attraction Reimagining” category. The experience is the first ride-through attraction at Disney Parks that’s inspired by the film Frozen and takes guests on a magical journey through the kingdom of Arendelle.
