This challenge involves riding every ride at all four Walt Disney World Parks in one day.¬† There are a lot of rules and regulations around this challenge in order for it to be considered official. There are currently 49 attractions that are considered rides at Walt Disney World. I go into the list and explain constitutes a “ride” in the challenge.
