  • Can you cut it? Gumball Rally:Disneyland Style

    Tonight at dinner my daughter asked me if it was possible to go on all of Disneylands rides in one day. I told her I didn't know but that it would be fun to find out.
    I checked out Disneylands website and here are the attractions that are listed, I've highlighted the non-rides in red:

    By my count there are 34 "rides" at Disneyland. Do you think it is possible to ride them all in one day?
    Is anybody here interested in coming up with a way to try and do all 34 rides in one day and make a kind of "Gumball Rally" out of it?

    A bit of history for our younger Micechatters...
    "Gumball Rally" was a movie that came out in the late 1970's that was essentially a non-stop cross-country car race that started in New York City and ended in Los Angeles. It was a pretty funny film as I recall.




    Anyways, I was thinking that it might be possible to come up with a date that would be agreeable to a number of interested Micechatters and we could all descend on Disneyland, bright and early on the appointed date.
    As soon as the "rope drop" occurs at the end of Main Street, the race begins. Teams of 2 or more could try any type of touring plan that they think will be most effective for them.

    Obviously, the point is to try and ride as many rides as you can between the rope drop and when Disneyland stops allowing guests on the rides.
    The only way that I could think of confirming your passage on the attraction would be to take (or have taken) your picture on the ride as it's in motion. Any other suggestions for verification would be welcome.

    Whoever has been on the most rides in the shortest amount of time,
    WINS!

    I haven't come up with a prize yet (which my wife and daughter insist are absolutely necessary for any contest to be worth competing in), but I would appreciate any suggestions in that department as well.

    This is just an idea... it can be modified, improved upon, changed, etc.
    It may even be possible to come up with a way to do this on different days, because it may not be possible to do it on one specific date.

    Sooooo, there you have it. What do you think? Should we try it?
    Just think... You may be able to compete in the 1st Annual Dsineyland Gumball Rally!!

      it is very hard to do all the rides in one day. you have to go on a tuesday or wednesday in the fall or spring time. It is possible! i have come very close to doing it once i didn't see some of the shows and in my book thosse count. But i will do it!! Everyone i think should do it at least once in their life!!

      Disneyland Gumball Rally I'm there!!!!
      If life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. Then find someone who's life has given them vodka and have a party.

      I look at you and I see 2 men. The man you are and the man you ought to be. One day those 2 will meet and should make for one hell of a football player!

      If this is torture, chain me to the wall

      The best kind of Prize is a surprise! Hehehe

        It's possible, but extremely difficult. You'd have to do a sixteen hour day, and it would take a combination of luck and know-how.

        Or a wheelchair.

          Slightly :ot: but...I would consider HISTA and Tiki Room as rides, myself. Although you aren't "going anywhere" they are still attractions, with detailed stories, special effects, and Cast Members that make it happen (as opposed to things like Tarzan's Treehouse which require no Cast Members). Although I see your point, and they do take up quite a bit of time when you could be riding "real" rides, they are still an important part of the Disneyland experience and "rides".

            Ah yes. I got on almost every ride on every trip to the parks when I was stuck in a wheelchair. Mind you, I didn't want to use it. I had a boot for my cast the 4 months I was in it, but my boyfriend always forced me into a wheelchair he rented lol.

                  I've done it. Well, my wife and I have done it, with my 8 year old niece. Some of those rides have hight restrictions.

                  I wrote a paper about it for a class.

                  Here is how you do it:

                  1. Go on a day when everything is open.
                  2. Don't be afraid of tons and tons of walking.\
                  3. Use and abuse FastPass as much as you can, Morals be damned.
                  4. Eat in line.
                  5. Fantasyland in the morning. you get the biggest block of rides over with in less than an hour.


                  It's not really that hard. 45 rides and attractions. if you use and abuse fastpass then each ride should take no more than 20 min.... five or less in most cases.

                  It would be fun to see how fast a person could do it.

                    You also have to make sure to do your rounds on the vehicles before the parade, since they close down then.

                    Would you have to do a round trip on the train, or could you use it just to get from one area to another?

                        I'd do it, but not likely to be there any time soon

                        Hmm...I could do the Hong Kong Disneyland leg! They've only got 5 rides, so I could be done by lunch

                          This sounds like fun. I'd be in if there was a set date. This is such a good idea. Thanks Charlie.

                              Great idea! My DD and I did all but astro orbitors and Columbia (we don't really like these) in January when it wasn't crowded. Count me in! Maybe for the prize everyone should chip in a set amount, and the winning team gets..... dole whips!
