Two Friends Attempt to Ride Every Attraction at Walt Disney World Resort

Consider it the "Four Parks One Day Challenge" - ride all 47 moving attractions at the four parks at Walt Disney World in just one day. That's exactly what two friends decided to do this summer.

Shane Lindsay and Ted Tamburo were determined to take on this adventure back in June and had a solid set of plans to get them through a day filled with Disney ride. They had a few rules for the mission - no friends were allowed to get them FastPasses and they wouldn't accept special "back door" ride entry from Cast Members - and they decided that if the attraction moved, it counted as a ride.

So, all in all they had 47 rides to conquer in one day. This made for a long day of park hopping from the Magic Kingdom (to ride the Main Street vehicles in the morning) to Hollywood Studios, to Epcot to the Animal Kingdom back to Hollywood Studios and then returning to Epcot and finally ending the night at the Magic Kingdom.

They ran into a few technical issues during their quest, from lazy rhinos on Kilmanjaro Safari to those pesky Florida thunderstorms causing some "ride swaps" at the Magic Kingdom. All in all the duo consider their mission a success and told the Orlando Sentinel that their next plan is to ride every ride at Disney World and then fly to Disneyland and ride all the rides there all in a 48 hour period.

I'm assuming Step By Step is the 90s television show.

This duo may have ended with a bout of bad luck, but some of their good luck was unbelievable. They managed to do Barnstormer AND Dumbo in less than 20 minutes about an hour after rope drop in the summer?! Considering the ride, load and unload times, that means Dumbo couldn't have been more than about a 10 minute wait. I've never seen it anywhere near that short.
