For many Disney fans, one of the things at the top of their bucket list is to travel the world and visit every single Disney theme park. There are a total of six Disney Resorts around the world. These are Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, Disneyland Paris Resort, Shanghai Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disneyland Resort, and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. Each Resort has a combination of classic Disney attractions, along with ones unique to that Park. There is also great specialty food and merchandise.

While some would think that the task was a nearly impossible one, we are excited to report that Nathan did it! On March 19, Nathan shared that he had completed his 12-day Disney Global Ride Challenge March 19 at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park.

12 Parks. 12 Days. 216 Rides. The #DisneyGlobalRideChallenge is Complete!

Now, Nathan did suffer a few setbacks, like ride breakdowns and sleeping through his alarm, but he never let that get him down. During his trip, Nathan utilized both Disney Genie+ and purchasing individual Lightning Lanes to help him maximize his day.

Even Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members became aware of Nathan’s challenge and helped him celebrate his victory.

So the Tomorrowland CM’s surprised me with a Mickey pretzel, a Mickey bar, a celebratory button, and more! Plus a raucous round of applause from them and all the guests there waiting!

If you are thinking of following in Nathan’s footsteps, it is important to prepare yourself for spending a lot of money, a lot of planning, a lot of travel, and not a lot of sleep.

Congratulations, Nathan! And thanks for bringing us along for the ride!
