We are in the early planning stages for a 8 to 10 week around the world extravaganza to all Disney parks, the Australia ABD and a Disney Cruise or two thrown in there. We are WDW Florida AP holders and have a VERY relaxed style of visiting those parks. There are two reasons for our relaxed style. One is we've been there so many times, but the 2nd reason is DHs energy level/health. As far as I can tell the only ticket options are consecutive days 4-day tickets. Well, we just absolutely don't tour that way. We may spend the morning at a park, then back to the room for the rest of the day, then out to dinner, then an attraction or two in the evening. Then in the middle of the trip, have a day where we do nothing but go to a resort meal. Then of course we'll need at least one day to do "something" in Tokyo. So really our touring style and energy level indicates APs, but as far as I can tell they are REALLY expensive. Has anyone done that. I even thought about two of the four-day tickets, with two empty days right in the middle. But like I said, I would much rather have the flexibility to tour when the weather and energy levels are best. Has anyone done that?? Looking at DLP and Hong Kong, they have ticket options that will work. It's only TDL that has the limitations.
