Disneyland Resort: A Different Way to Exercise

posted on November 4th, 2009 by Heather Hust Rivera, Senior Manager, Corporate Communications, The Walt Disney Company


We all know that exercise is great for us but it also can get boring. I suggest you hop off that treadmill, drive past your gym and head over to the Disneyland Resort for a few hours of fitness fun.

Ideal for Annual Passholders, guests can burn more than 350 calories per hour briskly walking from land to land. Pushing a stroller adds extra resistance burning even more!

Disney’s California Adventure Park has a hidden gem of a gym called the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. Climb, stretch, scramble and slide through more than two acres of trees, hollow logs, caves and rock cliffs. To improve balance and core strength, give the rope bridge a try!

Skip the tram and park in the Downtown Disney District parking lot. You’ll burn extra calories while window shopping and parking is free up to three hours.

Another tip: when you’re counting calories, try not to walk past the corn dog cart! That’s especially challenging for me because that’s my favorite food at the Resort.

Do you have any exercise tips to share?
