I have indeed calculated this. I have concluded that the whole film takes place over 4 and a half days. I’ll use the score track names to explain. 

  • Dragon racing takes place in the early morning (because of the lighting).
  • Together, we map the world is in that same morning.
  • Hiccup The Chief/Drago’s coming is in the afternoon because the lighting is more orange.
  • Toothless lost is at sunset, as you can clearly see the setting sun behind Cloudjumper. (Stoick and Gobber find hiccups helmet at dusk and hiccup is carried away in the night - it must have taken a good few hours to get to the dragon sanctuary because there is light in the shot of hiccup being carried away.
  • Should I know you? is unclear because there’s no sky since it’s in a cave. I estimate that it took place in the small hours of the morning of the next day.
  • By the time Valka’s sanctuary and loosing mom/meet the good alpha happens its morning of the next day.
  • Flying with mother takes place over that day. The feeding in midday, and the ‘every dragon has it’s secrets’ bit in the evening.
  •  That same evening, Astrid, Eret Fishlegs Snotlout Ruff and Tuff meet Drago.
  • A night passes. Hiccup spends it with his mum. Astrid, Fishlegs Snotlout, Eret, Ruff and Tuff spend it hiding in Drago’s dragon traps. Stoick and Gobber spend it tracking down hiccup.
  • The next morning, stoick finds beauty happens, and by midday For the dancing and the dreaming
  • That afternoon the battle of the bewilderbeast happens, hiccup Confronts Drago and Stoick saves Hiccup.
  • Stoick’s ship happens at dusk of that day.
  • The next day, hiccup ride the babies back to berk, for it is light in the ice caves. Drago also takes his armada back to Berk. It takes the whole day and night to get there. 
  • The alpha comes to berk in the small hours of the next morning, since it’s dark.
  • toothless found takes place at sunrise.
  • two new alphas is in the morning.
  • by midday the film’s over.

I need to edit this. i’ve still got the amount of days right. But apparetly, the animators took into account that night times in the arctic can still have the sun a certain times of year. So every time I said ‘dusk’ or mentioned low light conditions. It was actually night time.

it’s still 4 and a half days though.

Winter in Berk lasts most of the year. It hangs on with both hands and won’t let go. And the only real comfort against the cold are those you keep close to your heart.

Turns out, that was the best Christmas Snoggletog ever. And here I gave my best friend a pretty great gift. He gave me a better one.
