Couple attempts to visit Disney theme parks on both coasts in 24-hour opening period

Posted Thursday, March 1, 2012 9:55 AM | Contributed by Jeff

When Disney announced Orlando's Magic Kingdom and Disneyland would open their gates 24 hours straight for the first time, Andy Bullard and Randi Teague took notice. The couple sketched out a 5,200-mile odyssey in order to visit not one, but both theme parks Wednesday as the Walt Disney Co. marked leap year with its "One More Disney Day" event.

I was at MK from 7P-2A last night. Very very busy, but a fun crowd and a good time.

"To increase the adventure, the couple set themselves the goal of riding every attraction found in both the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland."

Really?

The lotus blossom knows not why the wind blows, only that it must dance...

The real trick is taking advantage of the date line to arrive in Disney California before you leave Tokyo Disneyland. And no, I've not done it -- but I have been in Magic Mountain before I left Rainbow's End...

My friend had only been on TTA after like 2 hours at the park last night during the same time. I wish I could have been there for the merch, but certainly glad I missed the crowd. I should have had a friend pick up a button for me now that I think about it...darn!

I hope for their sake that they're very rich because this sure is one hell of a way to flush a lot of money down the toilet very quickly.

Maybe that's how they enjoy spending their money?

It said in the article that they spent about $1000 on the trip, and subsidized it further with frequent flier miles. It's not like they spent a year's salary on it.

$1000?! They must be rollin' in it.

I spent the evening in the theater shows and things like TTA as well. Good excuse to see the new (old) Tiki, for example.

But Mr Ensign said he wants to occupy "them". That puts a different spin on things.

No, no. I meant I want to keep them busy. ;)
