Couple Plans Bi-Coastal Disney Park Hop Within 24 Hours On Leap Day

ANAHEIM (CBS) — An East Coast couple is taking park hopping to a whole new level.

Randi Teague and Andy Bullard told the Orange County Register that they plan on visiting both Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando and Disneyland in Anaheim – all in one day, Leap Day!

On Tuesday, the couple plans to fly out from their home in Washington D.C. to Florida where they will spend the night at a Disney World hotel.

On Leap Day Wednesday, they plan to enter the Florida park when it opens at 3 a.m. PST and spend the day at their favorite attractions.

From there, they plan to grab an evening flight to Los Angeles International Airport.

It’s scheduled to arrive at 9 p.m. Wednesday allowing a fast cab ride to the amusement park, where they hope to set foot on Main Street just before midnight.

Because of Leap Day, both parks are scheduled to remain all night as part of a promotion.

Bullard told the Register that they have a checklist of rides they hope to hit at both parks, including the Haunted Mansion and the Mad Tea Party.

The couple’s bi-coastal adventure is expected to cost about $1,100 which includes hotel costs and airfare, although frequent-flier miles will cover some of that.

As for admission fees, the couple have annual passes to both resorts, the newspaper reported.

    […] We all know that Disney is having the huge, mega enormous, coma inducing “ONE MORE DISNEY DAY!”. It’s a pretty brilliant move to make much ado over nothing. But people are finding reasons to celebrate all over the place. A couple is so in love with the idea of having one more Disney Day that they are planning on spending the day at both the Walt Disney Resorts. They live in Washington D.C. and will spend the morning at Walt Disney World in Florida, hop a plane, and arrive on Main Street USA at Disneyland just before midnight where they will spend the rest of the night/morning. Sounds like a cool plan to me, and shows dedication. Full story. […]
