Walt Disney World visits are always fun, but sometimes it can be easy to get into a rut of just running from ride to show to meal and character meet-and-greet over and over again. You've probably heard about some Disney challenges, like drinking your way around the World Showcase or seeing how many Hidden Mickeys you can find, but there are many more ways that you can make your next WDW visit more unique! Here's a list of 10 Disney dares. Are you up for the challenges?
1. Try Spaceship Earth in every language
You'll get a whole new perspective on the wonders of communication through the centuries by selecting a different language when you board your Spaceship Earth Time Machine. Besides English, the attraction's narration is offered in Portuguese, Spanish, French, German and Japanese, so you can plan on six rides to get the full effect! (For a bonus challenge, you could try all of the different choices of "futures" at the end of the rides.)
2. Expand your palate
Instead of hitting up your usual restaurants, why not let fate decide what you eat? You could try indulging in the lowest- and highest-priced foods at every park, letting your server bring you a surprise or simply trying a dish or a restaurant you never considered before. You might just discover something you love. (Bonus challenge: Try consuming every Mickey-shaped food item you can find.)
3. Pay attention to the signs
Try playing "Spot the Letter" — find signs in the parks that show each letter of the alphabet in different fonts and take photos of them. When you get home, you can turn the different letters into a collage that spells out your name or any phrase you choose. Print it out, frame it and you'll have a one-of-a-kind souvenir! (Bonus challenge: Find signs that have numbers on them, print out those photos and put them on your refrigerator or calendar for a countdown to your next trip.)
4. Complete one type of attraction in a day
Grab your Park Hopper pass and ride all of Walt Disney World's roller coasters one day, view all of the Circle-Vision 360° movies another day and watch all of the live shows on a third day. Doing this will take some time and stamina, but it can be done! (Bonus challenge: Try all of the spinning rides, like Mad Tea Cups and Mission:SPACE in one day.)
5. Find out how many times you can get 15 minutes of fame
Walt Disney World has plenty of opportunities for you to get a little attention. You can see if you can have your joke and name read by a monster or be "That Guy" or another participant in Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor; perform as an extra in the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular; interact with the Citizens of Hollywood on the streets at Disney's Hollywood Studios; sit on stage at Flights of Wonder at Disney's Animal Kingdom; and even lead the audience in making animal noises at the Festival of the Lion King. Bonus challenge: Give an autograph to one of your new "fans."
