The Magic Race (Amazing Race, Disney-style)
One idea my family has been tossing around is at our next family reunion, hold an Amazing Race (tm CBS) type event between couples. If you haven't seen the show, the basic premise is that teams race around the world, getting clues at each leg and performing different types of tasks along the way to receive the clues.
In this case the "world" would be limited to WDW property.
I'm interested in hearing ideas about what kind of tasks and contests could be used. We wouldn't have the race consume the entire trip, rather just an hour or two per day.
Stage 1 - Meet at the Boardwalk Lobby
Leg 1: Proceed from the Boardwalk lobby to the hat sized at 605 7/8. Provide proof that you were there.
Leg 2: Detour- Drop or Rock. Ride RnR and write down the parking level the coaster boards on, or ride ToT and write down the name of the inspector who last inspected the elevators on Oct 31, 1939.
Leg 3: Find the fountain with Miss Piggy. Make note of the statue, then proceed to the Magic Kingdom.
Leg 4: Roadblock- Each team member (over 13 years old) must get two FastPasses to two different attractions without doubling up (so if a team has 2 people over 13, this means 4 different attractions).
Leg 5: Pit Stop- Proceed to the Main Street store that specializes in what Miss Piggy was holding in her hand.
For the next stage, teams will leave the starting point in the order they arrived at the Pit Stop, spaced 5 minutes apart. No teams will be eliminated this way, and everyone stays in the running since the lead team will never get more than 5 minutes ahead to start.
Also note that the roadblock is modified to include all team members. I figured this would keep everyone involved.
What do you think?
