Has anyone here made it all 24 hours consecutively without any breaks?
YES!! My daughter (21) and I have attended ALL 3 of the other 24 hour
events - no sleeping, no stopping, no resting!
We are both major night owls and have awful schedules regularly so it really doesn't faze us! LOL!
My advice is to get a lot of sleep the 2 days before and it will help. Also, avoid sugar and caffeine because it will just make you crash. And go at an easy pace. You can easily ride a lot from 6am - 10am, then slow down. Eat leisurely, visit shops, pin trade in the afternoon, watch the parade. Make your FP for afternoon because that's when it will be crowded. After 1am, wait times are lessened again and you can ride easily until 6am.
Someone mentioned something about fights and trash, well perhaps that happened somewhere, but we have never witnessed anything negative at the 24 hour events. Even most CMs were in good spirits, I spoke with many who actually wanted to work the overnight hours and seemed to really enjoy the atmosphere. Especially from midnight to 6am, guests (who werent asleep on benches!) Were there to enjoy the event and lessened crowds. In the middle of the night most things were maybe 15 min. I waited longer to meet Bowler Hat Guy than any ride all day - no joke! Over the course of the 24 hours we "rode" 38 rides, with obviously some being repeats like HM 6 times, LOL. I kept a tally sheet for the scrap book! And took a picture of what we were doing every hour on the hour.
Can you tell we love the 24 hour days?!
