Back in December, Ocean Florida – the UK’s No. 1 independent Florida specialist – ran a UK wide Disney Survey to find out the nation’s all-time Disney favourites! I took part in the survey too – as a self confessed Disney addict I had to make my voice heard!
15,000 people entered, and the results are in… Now discover the nation’s all-time favourite Disney characters, prince and princesses, songs we can’t help but sing along to and the characters we’d love to meet….
Ultimate Disney Survey
Ocean Florida have put together an awesome infographic with the nation’s results (click on it to enlarge), which I’ve included at the end of this post, check it out to see if your favourites made it through!
But first, here are my thoughts!
I have to say I’m surprised at both the results here! In the female category, the choices were Cinderella, Elsa, Mulan, Pocahontas, Jasmine, Anna, and Ariel. I thought Elsa would top it, but she didn’t. And in the male category, the choices were Robin Hood, Woody, Peter Pan, Beast, Simba, and Kristof. My winner is Robin Hood ♥ but the actual winner was a surprising one!
Meet The Characters
We love to meet the characters when we go on holiday to Walt Disney World, Florida! It was a choice of Disney Princesses – Tiana, Merida, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Jasmine. I think we’ve managed to meet most of the Princesses over the years. The winner has a castle named after her…she was the obvious winner!!
Oh The Memories
Favourite Disney Song – the winner in my eyes should have been Circle of Life, from The Lion King, but it placed in 2nd…
Favourite Disney Love Story – my favourite couple – Prince Philip & Princess Aurora didn’t place at all – for shame!
Favourite Disney Quote – There are just so many wonderful quotes, but the winner is rightfully deserved!
UK Regional Favourites
This made for some interesting reading! (I am seriously a survey results geek!)
The North East’s favourite Disney Villain is Maleficent – I guess I should move up there, as she’s my favourite too!
Down in the South East, the favourite sidekick is everybody’s favourite snowman… Olaf!
We love Olaf on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, make sure you check out the free printables!
Walt Disney World Resort
You know I’m going to have a lot to say about the Walt Disney World section – after all, we holiday here often, and are Disney Vacation Club Members… it’s pretty much my favourite place on earth!
I love all the parks in equal measure, but the winner does not surprise me at all! It’s where I spent my 40th birthday!
I know I had a hard time picking from the options for favourite ride, because I love so many of the ones listed! Which one do you think won out?
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
- Splash Mountain
- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
- Space Mountain
- Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith
- Pirates of the Caribbean
- Soarin’ Around The World
- Kilimanjaro Safaris
- Expedition Everest
- Test Track
We have stayed at the nation’s favourite resort. Our personal favourite resort wasn’t listed as an option, but of those that were, the winner is definitely the right one!
And finally, who do the nation want to meet the most when they go to Walt Disney World? There can only be one answer surely? After all, it started with him!
