We tracked a day at EPCOT – opening to close – Future World, World Showcase and logged about 7.8 miles. At Magic Kingdom, I’ve logged 5.6 miles just criss-crossing the park to get to ADRs and FPs.

You will want to be standing at the gate at 8 am when it opens. I would be there no later than 7:30, poibssly 7:00 if you can manage it. You can drive your own cars and park there, and if I were you, I would.

I know that I went with my kids for 5 days, and I lost 15 lbs that week. When I went the airplane seat belt almost didnt fit, on the way home, I had like 4 or 5 inches left over.

This is very cool!!!! Complete side note (or only partially related side note)….Disney visitors can do some good for others while walking these miles by using an app called Charity Miles. It donates 25 cents per walked mile to a charity of the user’s choosing. Another side note: my daughter hopes to do the college program — it’s a big goal for her. 🙂

My daughter did DCP and LOVED it. I encourage yours to do her best to fulfill that hope/wish. It was probably the best time of her life, and she’s not one to sit anything out.

Back in 2000 I averaged about 12 miles per day using a pedometer. The 8.5 miles for all 4 parks do not include going to all the resorts (looking for elongated penny machines), walking thru stores, going to buses, backtracking thru parks to repeat a ride and it looks like not going to Downtown. Its amazing how you keep your mind off the walking because of all the wonders. I enjoy the details of Disney more then the rides and will pick something to focus on each visit (hidden Mickey, elongated Pennies, why Disney was built the way it was… Read more »

I just came back from WDW. This time i average 9 miles per day. I am guessing the reasons were My granson (8mths) came with us and being 15 years older did not help. The last time i walked a lot a month before disney. Need to drink alot of water.

I suggest avriring at 7 am. It may seem a bit early, but if you want to be in the park when it opens, and not be in a huge crowd of people in the back of the line get there ATLEAST an hour early. that allows you time for parking and getting inline to enter. Have fun!! sounds like a blaast on new years!

My family and I went to Disney World and June and of course we tracked our miles. Just in 1 park a day we averaged and where from 10-13 miles a day.

Cynthia Levin

As a runner, I decided that for my birthday a few years ago, I wanted to attend the Wine and Dine Half Marathon race party WITHOUT running the 13.1 miles. However, we did use the Charity Miles app to track our distance as we ate and drank our way around the world. We walked well over 13.1 miles and felt completely justified in crashing that party as walkers.

By the international entrance (I think that’s what you call it) by England maybe the gateway. It’s by the beach club. You have to walk down the Boardwalk past boardwalk hotel. It’s a hike.

Jody
Guest

Go out the International Gateway (down the hill between UK and France). Walk past the Yacht and Beach Club, over the bridge, look for the direction sign on your left before you get to the Swan and Dolphin.
Alternative: Out the International Gateway, onto the Friendship boat, off the boat at the Boardwalk, walk toward Swan and Dolphin, look for the direction sign on your left.
OR get on the Friendship boat and ride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

I often walk between EPCOT and Studios (through the Boardwalk, etc). On days like that I often track 10-15 miles throughout the day. Of course we also walk from our car (skip the tram in the lots) as well. It really adds up after a while!

We did Epcot and Hollywood Studios and walked from park to park. Over 15 miles. I was wearing a 27lb toddler in a Tula carrier the whole time. I wore a fitbit. Great workout.

Elizabeth

You should arrvie like half an hour early because there will be THOUSANDS of people going to the park and schools are on winter vacation so it will have 98% chance that you will not find parking and have to ride the bus. You should drive your own car because there will be a lot of people driving to Disneyland and the buses will be packed. Hope you have a good time! Enjoy your trip!

We average about 13 per day. Some higher some lower, but they average out to 13 – it’s the only reason a person doesn’t gain 40 pounds with all the indulgences. 😉

Sure, that is the technical distance around the parks but no one be fooled, you will walk WAY more than that each day! I never average less than 8 miles a day on our trips, and that’s with trying to do attractions close to each other so we don’t have to cut across the parks all the time!
