What is the Disneyland Mountain Challenge?

If you are like me and visit the parks frequently, you are probably looking for a little more things to do or maybe not because the parks are already enjoyable.  But if you are, how about you try the Disneyland Mountain Challenge!!  This challenge is a popular one among park goers who visit both Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.  We have already covered the Walt Disney World Mountain Challenge, so now it is time for Disneyland!

The Disneyland Mountain Challenge is similar to Walt Disney World, but it may pose a bit more of a challenge due to the location of the mountains involved in this challenge.  However, the location of these mountains also makes for an additional fun challenge of who can do them the fastest.  Now, there is no actual challenge of the sort that I could find, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start this between you and your friends!

What is the Disneyland Mountain Challenge?

There are four mountains involved in the Disneyland Mountain Challenge; Splash Mountain, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Space Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain.  To begin this challenge, you first need to plot your course of action!  Like mentioned before, these mountains are spread out.  Splash Mountain is located in Critter Country, the Matterhorn Bobsleds are located in Fantasyland, Space Mountain is located in Tomorrowland, and Big Thunder Mountain is located in Frontierland.

Even though they are more spread out than Walt Disney World, Disneyland’s Mountian Challenge still has an upside.  Disneyland park is not as large as the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World so you are still more likely to complete this challenge faster.

You can plan however you want to hit all four rides in one day, and you certainly don’t have to take advice from us, but we suggest you start with Space Mountain, then head to the Matterhorn bobsleds, run to Big Thunder Mountain, and end at Splash Mountain!

Remember, Maxpass is your friend!  To help you prepare for this challenge we strongly suggest you grab Maxpass ahead of time for a small additional fee to avoid any wait time.  The Maxpass should allow you to complete the challenge quicker unless you are doing the challenge on a very busy day, then may the mountains be ever in your favor.  Those who have done the challenge before should do them without Maxpass, that’s all apart of the fun right?  For an extra added challenge, change up your game plan of attack.  If you usually start with Space Mountain start with Big Thunder instead, actually this sounds like an awesome educational experiment if you are in need of one as a school excuse.

Now, there’s no prize for completing such a challenge.  Well, there’s no official prize anyways, but there is your own competitive self and those of your friends.  Maybe you could make up your own certificate or prize trophy among your friends, just a thought.  Whichever you celebrate your victory you should have at least had fun doing the Disneyland Mountain Challenge.
