In the 29th annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, we were honored to receive a total of 15 awards for Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disney Vacation Club properties, as well as for Disney Cruise Line and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. To date, Disney properties around the world have been recognized more than 60 times by Condé Nast Traveler.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts was recognized with six prestigious awards from two industry organizations, International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) and Themed Entertainment Association (TEA). Shanghai Disneyland’s “Ignite the Dream – A Nighttime Spectacular of Magic and Light” and Disneyland Paris’s “Mickey and the Magician” both received 2016 IAAPA Brass Ring Awards. Shanghai Disney Resort also received three Thea Awards for outstanding achievement from TEA, including Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure and Camp Discovery, and a fourth Thea Award was given to Disney Parks’ Ghost Post.
