    My DS and I are going to China in a few months. It started with a trip to Tibet but then grew. We now will be visiting all 3 parks, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. I started to think, why not do all the parks in a 9 month period.

    We live in the EU so going to Paris would be easy, we even have AP's. We also have AP's for Florida. If I could DH to do a work related conference we may be able to pull off DL Cali.

    Crazy?

    It's a good idea. the Cali one looks to be the tricky part but even without a conference, you should just take time off work and go ^^

    When you sail all 4 of Disney’s ships in a year it’s called a Super Slam (as opposed to just getting all 4 with no time limit being the Grand Slam). All Disney parks within a 12 month period should have a title! And a trophy! I say go for it! That’s amazing!

    Any idea what we could call it? I think we are going to give it a go and finish by Nov 1. Kinda crazy but we have Asia already planned. We can come home, rest a few weeks and then hit Paris for a day in each park and overnight. Finally we usually go to Florida in late September for my Bday. It is always way too hot but perhaps mid October we can do a trip to the States for a week in Florida, followed by two days in Cali. Whew, that is a lot but it could be done.

    What's crazy will depend on who you're talking to. I routinely do something I call the Disney park sandwich which my friends think is crazy: Pick a resort to be your "bread" and a resort in another country to be your middle. Examples from last year:
    Day 1. HKDL, Day 2-4. SHDR, Day 5. HKDL
    Day 1. HKDL, Day 2-6. DLR. Day 7 (flight). Day 8. HKDL
    Day 1. HKDL, Day 2-5. TDR. Day 6. HKDL

    I've never "park hopped" internationally because I prefer to go to Hong Kong International Airport when the park closes and fly into Haneda in time for DisneySea park opening. I also didn't have an annual pass to Shanghai so I just ate dinner in Disneytown rather than go into the park after arriving from Hong Kong.

    I was talking to a family last year that lives near Disney World who flew from Orlando to Hong Kong to Shanghai to Los Angeles back Orlando to hit up all the Lunar New Year events in the parks. I also know some people who have both a platinum and gold Hong Kong Disneyland pass so they can go to the passholder exclusive events and get the passholder exclusive items multiple times. Some of these Hong Kong dual passholders are also Japanese people with Tokyo passes.

    We did 10 parks in 2014 (every one open except Hong Kong) and 9 in 2016 (all except Shanghai and Paris). Doing 13 in nine months would be pretty impressive.

    We've done them all but not in such a short time... I haven't been to Paris in over a decade! That'll be so fun! :)

    Not crazy, impressive! And ending up in Cali, in Walt's park, would be the cherry on top.

    I'm just trying to get to all the parks in my lifetime, not in a year :)

    It sounds awesome! I will be getting them all done in about 17 months after I visit Asia this fall (went to Paris in June 2018) - couldn't get the schedule to work for it all within 12 months!

    It now looks like this is going to happen for sure all in 2019. We leave Thursday for the start of our Asia trip. When I arrive back to our home in the EU, I have two days and then I am off for the States. Since I will be at our home in the west, I thought I would do the 16 hour drive to Cali and visit DL. I checked with my travel buddy, my son, to see if he would object to only me going to Cali for the All the Parks tour. He is a very happy guy and said, no he doesn't mind at all. He rather stay home with his father and play video games. When I return to the EU 3 weeks later, we have company for 10 days. But then I will go off to Paris and get that park finished in two days. We will both be finishing now in WDW early November. Whew! It is going to be a great year.
