Father and daughter drove all 49 Disney World rides in 1 day

A father and daughter completed a challenge of the drive from all 49 of Disney World rides in one day


Father-daughter time is different for every family, but the quality of your time probably can’t beat spending 17 hours in Walt Disney World.

A Disney-loving father who goes by Kenny the Pirate online, and his daughter, Jordyn, has started a challenge on 6 December to ride all 47 rides at Disney World in just one day.

Kenny documented the pair’s experience online, and the day seemed to be amazingly fun, and that is very tiring.

According to Kenny, the two focused to start the day at 5 pm, but accidentally slept until 5:35 am, While they hoped to get to the park at 6 am, by a miracle, they managed to get into the line of my 6:30 a.m. and were still among the first to arrive.

At 7:45 pm they were in the park and in line for their first ride, Avatar: the Flight of the Passage. The clock starts ticking here.

Throughout the day, Kenny and Jordin successfully rode every ride with their Fast Passes and park hopping app is developed by Kenny himself called Character Locator. The app creates tour plans for people to optimize their experience in Disney World, helping them find characters, giving them riding tips, and making schedules.

After about 17 hours, the father of a daughter and completed the challenge at 12:35 pm of the 15 teams entered that day, only four teams finished the challenge a whole. A day in the park is a lot more difficult than we thought.

Kenny and Jordin the full experience can be found on Kenny’s website and Twitter page.
