  • Visiting multiple parks?

    My son and daughter-in-law are contemplating teaching in Taiwan for a year. Coincidentally enough, I am reading a book I got for Christmas, The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic that talks about all the Disney Parks worldwide and it had already gotten me thinking it would be fun to visit the parks in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai. My wife and I would go visit at least once if they were in Taiwan, and I’m wondering if anyone has been to those three parks? It would probably be our only opportunity to check out those three parks, but I worry that I should maybe devote more time to visiting other landmarks/sites rather than going to three amusement parks? This is all very hypothetical, and if we did go, I don’t know what kind of budget we would have or how long we would have to explore—definitely no more than two weeks total, including our time in Taiwan. Anyway, any thoughts?

    We are doing this trip to all three in May 2018. I have been to HKDL and TDR and rode the Haunted Mansions at each. Also, at all other Disney Parks. We did our first trip in 2015 to Hong Kong for three days ( including one day at HKDL) and then 7 days in Tokyo ( which included 4 days at TDR). To be very honest, I felt really guilty before I left on this trip that I was not going to be doing too much other sightseeing. At the end of the day, we did actually fit in a fair amount of sightseeing but really learned the most about each culture at the parks, themselves. The Disney parks act as a Litmus Paper of culture, where you are taking basically the same experience but seeing how different cultures react to this same experience. It was fascinating. You would really enjoy a trip like ours.
