What is the Every Ride Challenge?


The Every Ride Challenge is an attempt to see how quickly you can successfully complete all the rides/boats (not under official refurbishment) listed for the challenge you choose. Currently there are four different challenges (anyone can sign up for any challenge) in which you can participate at Walt Disney World with Disneyland coming soon:

How did this challenge start?

The idea behind the Every Ride Challenge came from a group of theme park challenge participants who wanted to promote Give Kids The World (GKTW) while providing families additional challenge options that are less intense. 

In the Summer of 2018, with sponsor’s help, we created a challenge to benefit GKTW. We called this Give Kids the Rides.”  In only a few months, Give Kids the Rides nearly raised $60,000 for this worthy cause in 2018.  From that challenge, we decided to create an ongoing challenge that can be fun and benefit a greater cause.  Our goal is $100,000 for 2019!

We had often heard comments like “That sounds like too much work during vacation”, “I’d love to try it but it’s a family vacation. My 3 year old can’t ride all the rides”, “My teen would never set foot on Dumbo” and “I wish there was a challenge we could do as a family”. So, we decided to create a fun, family-friendly and yet still competitive way to challenge one’s Disney World knowledge and stamina.   Choose the challenge that is best for you and you might make our Hall of Fame!

Please note: Participation in this challenge is free of any fee but we support the efforts of GKTW and their volunteers. We will do an Annual Give Kids the Rides fundraising campaign and encourage people to donate and volunteer at the Village.  Our next group challenge day will be held on December 4, 2019.
