    Re: Every Ride - One Day

    Wow!!!

    What an adventure.

    Years ago, when I was much younger, I was at DL with some friends and we decided to try that. We didn't do the walk-ins/sit downs like the cinema, or BT Ranch, but just the actual moving rides. We did it and it was a blast!

    Nothing compares to your day though.

    Congratulations and thanks!

    I think my feet hurt from reading your post - but I had to say AMAZING!! Do you even remember any of the first half of the day though? And wait -- you didn't do DCA as part of that day??

    Re: Every Ride - One Day

    I did this for my friend's birthdyaq back in June. We were proud that we were able to do everything on a Friday in the summer!

    The worst was Astro-Orbitor, I was so sick and dizzy I could barely get out!

    Re: Every Ride - One Day

    on our honeymoon, on our last full day in wdw we decided to hit each park and go on at least one ride, it was a long but fun day. dont think i have succeeded that at DL and would only be able to if i left the kids at home. hmmm, might be able to happen soon, hubby and i have decided to get a sitter and have a date day/nite at dl sometime soon.

    Re: Every Ride - One Day

    I did not do DCA. Now there is a challenge (for somebody else) - Disneyland and DCA in one day. I would think you could only do that on a day the parks are open until midnight. As it turned out, I was done with about 1 1/2 hours to spare. The best part was that morning run when I was flying ahead of the lines (first of Peter Pan, first on Dumbo, etc.). It was like watching a TV show with TIVO, no commercials (that is lines) and the rides started to blur together. So who is next?

    Plenty of time for DCA. If it's open, of course.

    WOW! Congraulations! I don't even think I would try for half of that in one day! DCA would be a cinch, if only that Park. Could do that in just a couple of hours max!

    Yes, it's very possible to ride all the rides in one day.

    I've done it multiple times since I only get to go to the resort once every one to two years.

    Actually, I did it the Sunday after Space Mountain officially re-opened. I got there at opening and stayed until midnight! My legs were cramping up by 6 PM.

    Re: Every Ride - One Day

    I had a blast. It was a wonderful blend of constantly being immersed in different ride environments, interrupted by the occasional line (none more than 15 minutes and that was for the canal boats), plus the added challenge of determining the most efficient use of my time. As a frequent park goer it was fun to test my knowledge of the attraction usage patterns. If I didn’t take a break and run back to the hotel I would have been done about an hour earlier. If I had the energy I could have done most of the e-tickets a second time. Light crowds and the parade would have helped me out. So who is next? What path will you follow?
