This is what I did this weekend:
My favorite time of year.
Might be better than Christmas for me.
Think “Amazing Race” inside Disneyland, but without the running.
A fast walk? Yes.
Running? Breaking the rules.
Not sure of the exact amount of people who play…my guess would be around 500-600 people play in teams of 2-4.
This time around, we changed our team name. We were slipping in the rankings, and it MUST have been because of our team name.
I mean, it couldn’t possibly be because we were just not that smart, right?
Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated.
Yup, we are “Phineas and Ferb” fans around here.
We even had Perry tied up to our backpacks as our team mascot.
Why were we wearing backpacks?
Because you don’t have time to stop and eat, drink, or go on a ride for fun! So, we pack up our camelbacks with everything we need! Also, you need to pack a clipboard (yes, clipboard is not a typo), paper, pens, highlighters, sticky notes, etc.
Does it sound like Nerd Fest?
Let me attempt to explain ONE of the MANY “quests” we had to do yesterday.
( I can’t show you the paperwork…it would be a “no, no” according to the rules).
During Halloween, there are a bazillion pumpkins all over Main Street. Our quest was to answer certain questions. Example: What doesn’t the Busy Hands School teach? (to find the answer, you have to look at the Main Street windows to find the school and figure it out…next time you’re at Disneyland, check it out and you’ll notice there are also a bazillion windows with writing on them). You find ALL the answers to the various questions. Then, your answer will coordinate with a small picture that you then have to sketch into a grid. Your sketch will end up looking like a pumpkin. Then, you have to search through all the pumpkins on Main Street and find the EXACT pumpkin you just sketched out. Found it? Yes, but then you have to tell which building it’s on!
But oh so much fun when you realize you actually completed the quest and got it right!
There are maybe 10 or so quests like that, and you have a time limit.
What do you win?
Bragging rights is what it’s all about.
Rankings come out in about a week. We always think we did really well, only to find out we missed something important! I know you are all dying to find out how my team did, so I’ll let you know when I find out.

On a serious note…my sister/teammate is sitting right next to me and just kicked my booty for sharing the link with you all! Signing up is serious business since it can be difficult to get a spot to play!
