    Orange County Register mentions the Gumball Rally in an article - 1/24/08

    http://ocresort.freedomblogging.com/


    Contest to determine fastest Disney riders


    Disney enthusiasts will take on the challenge of maximizing their time at theme parks in a competitive way Saturday.

    Its the second year of the Gumball Rally, an unofficial contest in which teams try to hit as many rides as possible in both theme parks in a day.

    Last year, contestants only went to Disneyland, and some teams actually made all rides. This year, both parks will be included for the 200 competitors.

    It seems almost impossible that they could do all the attractions in one day, said organizer Dusty Sage, a blogger on the MiceChat Web site that is putting together the event.

    That is so incredibly awesome!
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    That was really nice. And they got it almost right. She said that it sounded like a lot of fun to her. And, you know what? It IS a lot of fun.
