Dear native English speakers,
Would both (a) and (b) in each set be used with the same meaning?
(1a) I will have seen the movie five times if I see it this weekend.
(1b) I will see the movie five times if I see it this weekend.

(2a) I will have gone/been to Tokyo Disneyland twenty times if I go there next week
(2b) I will go to Tokyo Disneyland twenty times if I go there next week

(3a) I will have visited Tokyo Disneyland twenty times if I go there next week
(3b) I will visit Tokyo Disneyland twenty times if I go there next week

Thanks in advance.

No it's not the same. (b) sounds like you will the movie 5 more times. (Same for the other examples).
