I never thought that I’d be putting the words Disney and extreme travel together in the same sentence but that’s exactly what it sounds like one couple did on Valentine’s Day.
Extreme Disney Travel…
Kim, Lucas and I recently visited Disney in Orlando, Florida and it was a very long and tiring day. I couldn’t even begin to imagine what it must be like to visit multiple Disney parks on different coasts!
Every year Michael and Diane Greening head over to Disneyland in California for their wedding anniversary on January 17. However, for 2015 they wanted to do something different. They decided to up the ante and visit three different Disney parks on three coasts.
They originally decided on changing Disney locations and tried to choose one park from either Tokyo Disneyland or Disney World. When they couldn’t make a decision Michael suggested heading to both parks while also including a stop at Disneyland.
In order to make this crazy plan happen, they needed Disney World in Orlando to be open until midnight. Their anniversary date of January 17 didn’t work due to this so they decided to go for it on Valentine’s Day.
Here is how the day went:
Their first stop was Tokyo Disneyland at 9:50 AM where they took a photo and then headed to the airport for the 10 hour flight to L.A. They arrived around noon, took a photo at Disneyland and then headed over to Orange County Airport. The couple missed their flight to Orlando but they got booked on another flight, making up 30 minutes of time.
They made it into Disney World at 11:40 PM, taking their photo 20 minutes before their deadline and the park closing.
In all, the Greenings traveled for 28 hours and 7,900 miles visiting Disney parks in Tokyo, Anaheim and Orlando. It doesn’t sound like they did much more than take a photo at each park but they visited.
I just want to know if they had to pay entry fees at each park! If so, this was one pricey Valentine’s Day with not much more than a few photos to show for it…
