  • Trip Report The Poor Unfortunate Soles Gumball Rally Trip Report














    Eventually, it was time for the rules to be announced, and this year (as every year) had some twists. There were three twists, really:
    1. No fastpass or single rider.
    2. Every attraction was worth one point.
    3. Disneyland and DCA were separated into different booklets, and you could only have one at the beginning. When you were ready to switch parks, you had to turn in your first packet in order to get your second packet, and there was no going back.

    Next we knocked out the rest of Paradise Pier, and we ran into Powered By Pixie Dust as we were leaving Mermaid.



    Then, at the Bakery Tour, we were one of several teams all trying to locate the answers while munching on sourdough bread.








    The last DCA stop for us was Hollywoodland, where we saw two more teams in line for Monsters!

      After that, we headed over to Big Thunder with Dead Men Blow No Bubbles, and enjoyed chatting with them some more while in line for the Wildest Ride In The Wilderness. However, after Big Thunder, we headed off in opposite directions again.














































      After a successful Rally, we headed back to the Anabella for the Awards Party. All in all, it was another great year making memories with good friends!

        Excellent trip report! We look forward to seeing all of you at the Rally next year! :meet:
        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!

          It was so awesome to get to see you at Heimlich's, chat with you on the Mark Twain and again on Storybook! Sorry we "ditched" you and Dead Men Blow No Bubbles after the Mark Twain - we made a complete 180 to our thinking and yelled goodbye but were worried you didn't hear us. Awesome pics - thanks for taking our pic on Storybook! - and we cannot wait to see you (and your parents) next year!!

            No problem! I thought you had changed your mind about Big Thunder when you took the other exit from the Twain, but it's more fun to joke that you ditched us.

            I'm so glad we got to meet up again later in the day! Looking forward to next year!

              Great article and pictures! I don't know how you did it already, I am just recovering from Gumball Rally weekend and I didn't have to travel!!

              I want to thank you both for inviting me to join their team for this year's MiceChat Gumball Rally​! We each had been doing the Rally with other teams and this year neither of our other teammates were doing the race, so they thought of inviting me onto their team "Poor Unfortunate Soles"!!! I am truly grateful that you would consider me...I'm especially grateful that you chose to stay with me after getting reports of my possible competitiveness and possible need for control!!! I'm glad to report that after some initial testing of resolve on each side, we came to make really good decisions TOGETHER! Every decision we made, we all agreed upon before we moved on (and we moved on quickly)!! You were our MVP, you not only helped us play the game with the best decisions, but you also took pictures, and carried the torch of the former "Team Spirit" award winning team, by always noticing other teams and initiating contact!!! You both made the day much more fun, as I tend to get overly focused on the game and won't even notice other teams around me! It was truly a great (although exhausting) day that I will always remember, I would love to partner with these two again, I know we did well this year and don't doubt we could place in the future (although I understand that they have their family team and lots of other friends to play with)!!!!! Thank you to all the MiceChat Gumball Rally crew!!! Thank you for making one of my favorite days of the year, a pleasure once again!!!! <3

                Wonderful trip report, Bookwyrm! We're really sorry that we missed the Rally this year, but it looks like you guys did a wonderful job in bringing the fun along with you!!

                Instead of rallying, we were in the land of Seuss:

                Also fun, but in a very different way!

                We will see all of you next year at the Rally!!

                  Great Trip Report! I had not even considered that Disneyland had early admission when we made our decision to start there......I think that you guys made the right tactical decision to start in California Adventure. Thanks again for your help on Big Thunder - we would have skipped it without you.

                  Lastly, I wanted to say what a huge impression you made on us at the finish line. As we approached it we saw several teams hanging out or walking away, but you guys were right there at the line loudly cheering everyone on - it is your positive attitude and sportsmanship that make the Rally so fun to participate in every year!

                      Great trip report! (And not just because we were in it ) It was great to cross paths with you and, as others have stated, your positive and friendly attitudes make the Rally even more enjoyable.

                        They didn't, because I was wondering the same thing!
