Default 49 rides in one day

https://www.wsj.com/articles/move-it...day-1533657651


A group try to ride all 49 rides in one day.
The Wall Street Journal was an odd place for a Disney article . I wonder how many people actually try his challenge. It sounds rather hellush to me .

Reminds me of the family that got to stay free 30 Days / 30 different resort comped by Disney recently in news with final night ultimate surprise.
It was great fun for them and fun to see all the free stuff delivered to them everyday.
How come we never hear about celebrities staying in the Castle or bungalows for free?

Fascinating looking at their list of rides.
They can't spell Soarin', but I suppose I should be glad they didn't spell it Sauron. (And where's the smilie for him?!)

We don’t have a big eye smilie either? Though I guess it would be menacing, not smiling...

Actually I now see a tiny little hook coming off the 2nd "o", so they're OK. At first it looked like Soorin' .

After I ride it, I always call it Søren (Kierkegaard).

Cheers.

I successfully did the WDW 46 challenge last october. It was almost 20 miles of walking/jogging. It is not for the feint of heart.

I also attempted it again in April when I was there -- but a bum hamstring and severe blisters, along with Test Track going down for 30 mins ruined that attempt. I just had POC, BTMRR and Splash left...needed 30 more mins.

I will be attempting to do this again in October.

If you're going to do this -- you really need to carry at least one extra phone charger and be very familiar with refreshing the FPs.

sadly -- I have seen most of these videos. I find them oddly addicting. It's like the amazing race meets disney world.
