Oh no doubt it can be done - but I have to imagine the quality of immersion is rather low in doing so. I have to admit I admired the podcast with the Disneyland guys that were able to hit all the domestic parks in one day. That was pretty cool.

Anyone good with geography to know if you could do all 6 parks domestically and travel the international date line and hit two parks in Tokyo for a big Disney park adventure on one date?

I originally planned to go to Tulum, then decided I didn't want to spend 2 hours each way to get there. Instead, I'll see the less impressive San Gervasio Ruins (in Cozumel) and the Discover Mexico Cultural Park - with some time left over for wandering around.

FYI - The Discover Mexico Cultural Park is something one could easily do on their own. We have not visited this attraction, but I have been in it's parking lot!

On our July cruise, we did a Segway tour that took us to that parking lot to practice and get our bearings. From the dock where we were tied up, it was maybe a 5 minute ride to the center. I have to imagine the taxi fare for thise jaunt would not be large. So, if you wanted to save some money, this would be an easy excursion to do on your own.

Again - no experience of any kind as to the quality within, but we have physically been to the site. And for what it is worth, it looks on the outside like a modern museum.

Good luck!

We're doing some form of Stingray City- just not sure which one yet.

Chaccoben Ruins (with kids version)

Secret River

Anyone else on those?

Don't think so

I don't think it'd be possible - you'd have to do Japan first as you'd gain time heading towards the US but don't think the flight times would work to get you into LA and then across to Florida on the same day let alone hitting theme parks as well.

I think its about a 16 hour flight from Japan to LA - I really don't think you'd want to hit a theme park after that

I am going to Tokyo Disneyland in March and I can't wait!

Will they convert your reservation to Florida resident rates & still keep it as a part of the group? I thought you had to get the group pricing to be a part of the Podcast events.

I don't have group pricing now -Tracey moved an OBB for me instead when we booked. 10% off and the CC OBC was a better deal. I don't see why I couldn't get it converted if that comes up - I'm still paid thru DU, which is the criteria.

I was secretly hoping for this as well I am booked in a 9d which is the cheapest available room and there is only 10 of them and I check everyday for an upgrade since they are still selling this cat, no luck yet, Ill keep you posted If not we did get assigned one of the big corner rooms with extra floor space so win win...

As far as if gt rates or florida resident rates come up for our sailing as far as I understand by reading other threads that you can book them, but you cannot transfer an obb for further discount and obc. Yes, any ressie made through dreams qualifies as long as they havnt reached thier magic number of podcast cruisers, which I dont believe they have If gty rates are released you have to cancel current booking and pay penatly for that room as well. Sometimes cancelling and rebooking comes out to a better deal, but also factor in any obb credit..... its a game for sure Seems to be igt/vgt rates released for almost every non holiday cruise on the fantasy in the last few months for some great savings if you are willing to sail within 75 days or shorter of the booking period!

I've switched to the FLR rate twice after the penalty period & they do not charge a penalty fee . You don't get the OBB 10% off or OBC but the savings ALWAYS makes up for that. In 2010, we were booked on a 5-night DD (2A, 1C) for $5000. Fl res rates came out, my spectacular DU TA applied the code, and voila - cruise became $2400 and there was a $2600 credit that appeared on my Disney Visa & we kept the same balcony room we had originally picked. No penalty. This year, we were booked on the Dream in Feb. in an 8A. After paid in full, FLR rates came out, we upgraded to a 5A & got a $400 credit. As you can see, those beat the OBB.

This is not the same as IGT/OGT/VGT rates. Those you do pay the penalty for & I'm not interested in those! I prefer to choose my room. I want my Cat 5E room (8188) & have a "do not change room or upgrade" note on my account!!! I don't want to leave my room to chance....
