What is #wdw50in24?

To understand what #wdw50in24 you must first know what inspired it. There is a challenge called #wdw46 where guests attempt to ride every “ride” at Walt Disney World in one normal operating day. For the purposes of this challenge an operating day is from when the first park opens and is concluded when the last park closes. Operating hours often vary but are typically 15-18 hours. I has been completed only a handful of times due to the many challenges guests may face throughout the day such as attraction closures (temporary and momentary).

Almost 2 years ago I attended an on-site agent education program at Walt Disney World where a fellow agent (who I met for the first time at the training) and I cooked up the idea to visit all 4 theme parks and 2 water parks in the same day. We made a goal to do at least 3 attractions at each park. We were successful despite very little planning.

I was recently contacted by my “6 Parks 1 Day” partner and invited to join him and a few other guys from another agency for a guy’s weekend to attend the 24 hour event in Magic Kingdom. After recently learning of the #wdw46 challenge we saw this reunion as an opportunity to take our shot at the challenge. Unfortunately, our attempt would not count because of the extended hours (even if we completed in the same amount of time as others who were successful) but also because one of the attractions in Animal Kingdom will be closed while we are there.

Not being eligible to have our names recorded in the #wdw46 record book was disappointing but did not stop us. We thought it would still be fun to try so we just created our own challenge! We made a list of “must do” attractions for each park and it came out to an even 50!

We originally wanted to rope drop Magic Kingdom at 6am and also rode drop Epcot at 9am and to use our FastPass+ at Hollywood Studios but because our planning was so last minute we missed out on Fastpasses to Toy Story Midway Mania so we decided we would have to rope drop Hollywood Studios to keep from losing too much of our time standing in the Toy Story Midway Mania standby queue.  So we will be using our three FastPasses at Epcot instead.  The order we plan to tackle the parks is: Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and then back to Magic Kingdom to finish out the 24 hour event.4675b49740cffff4c44b59b00246344c_400x400
