Zagat surveyed nearly 5,000 people, including many INTERCOT members, by computer between November 16 and December 3, 2006. Mickey Mouse is the favorite costumed character, Soarin' the most popular attraction and Victoria & Albert's the home of the best food at Walt Disney World, say frequent visitors.
