WDW46: The Video and the official Parkeology challenge

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

My how time flies. It’s been two months since Shane and I completed WDW46 and over a year and a half since we created the idea of riding every Walt Disney World ride in one day.

Since then we are happy to see others becoming excited about WDW46 and attempting it themselves. We have heard from readers from all over the country and even other parts of the world who have asked for advice and informed us that they were going to attempt similar challenges themselves. We are pleased to have inspired so many who now have a guide map to follow.

Shane and I were interviewed on national radio shows, featured in newspapers and on Podcasts and even turned up on both local and national news television programs. Perhaps strangest of all was being interviewed by the in-flight magazine of Norwegian Airlines! Who would have ever thought WDW46 would be so far spread? To say that was unexpected would be an understatement.

We created WDW46 not for notoriety but rather because it is crazy, silly, challenging and just plain fun. It represents everything we enjoy about the Disney parks and doing it with your friend makes it that much better.

Today we are proud to not only premiere the video of our WDW46 attempt but also to announce that we have started the official Parkeology WDW46 Challenge! You will see new links on the page (or click here) that will take you to the Parkeology WDW46 Challenge page. We will be keeping track of all the attempts and we may even be awarding prizes for successfully completing it.

To date several have tried and though most have met with failure remember that the real fun is in the attempt. Our first attempt at what was then WDW47 fell short because of the weather. Though we had proof of concept it has to be looked upon as a technical fail. Regardless we came back stronger than ever and I am sure many others will now follow in our footsteps and complete the challenge as well.

Get a team together, get in touch with us and get out into the parks. Good Luck!

Do us one favor; share the link to the video and get the word out!

If you are one of our many new readers who just discovered us recently make sure you watch our attempt at WDW47 last year:

Finally one last thank you to all the folks who cheered us on both on Twitter and especially to those who turned up in person and tracked us down. Thank you so, so much, it meant the world to us!

And now without further ado Parkeology presents WDW46: Redemption (make sure to watch to the very end):

All the best:

Thanksgiving is of course a wonderful time to give thanks and celebrate all the good things that have happened in the past year.

TV

Around Parkeology nothing has been bigger than the first ever successful running of WDW46.  We have been taken aback by all the coverage we have received; from articles in the Orlando Sentinel and the NY Daily News to multiple TV appearances.  From popping up on CNN and Fox to international coverage as well it has been quite a ride so to speak.

Earlier this week we had a great interview with the awesome guys at coaster radio.com.

Mike and E.B. were kind enough to delve into some of the details of WDW46 and you can hear it all right now by clicking HERE.

So go and give it a listen… soon we will be back to the usual Parkeology antics but for now we are still reveling in the insanity which is WDW46.
