How is your stamina? What about those in your party? Can you keep up a fast pace all day long? According to knowdw.com, if a person were to walk around the perimeter of all 4 theme parks, you will have walked 8.51 miles (13.69 km). For each individual park, here is the mileage for just walking the perimeter of the park:
- Magic Kingdom – 2.17 mi (3.49 km)
- Epcot – 2.78 mi (4.47 km)
- Hollywood Studios – 1.39 mi (2.23 km)
- Animal Kingdom – 2.27 mi (3.65 km)
- Disney Springs – 1.83 mi (2.94 km)
Remember, that is only walking the perimeter of the park. Think of how many additional miles will be walked just going back and forth between rides and shopping. And don’t forget the walk to get back to your bus and the walk from the bus to your room. Those miles add up quickly. Add in summer high temperatures and humidity that will sap your energy quickly, and you may find yourself exhausted by lunch time.
The goal isn’t to scare you away from visiting Disney World! The goal is to help you decide, realistically, how much you can accomplish in one day. I can guarantee that your trip will be much more enjoyable if you give yourself extra time to take breaks or get in an afternoon nap or relaxation time at your resort.
