Disney Bucket List

It is no secret that I am a huge Disney fan, as are many of my readers and friends! I am sure most of us have a Disney World & Disneyland bucket list to complete over a lifetime so I have decided to make mine official and put it in writing. This is just a  base list, and I will add to it as I think of other things (or at Disney introduces new events). I have also put a new tab up near the top of my blog to dedicate a full page to crossing items off my Disney bucket list!

QOTD: Do you have a Disney bucket list?


  1. I didn't think I had a Disney bucket list but I certainly do now! One of mine was to stay at all the disney resorts once but I have my favorites and keep going back. We will be trying Wilderness lodge out for the first time on our next trip. I'm kind of hesitant because I worry I won't feel like i'm in FL. Maybe I should have chose some place a little more "beachy" what do u think?
    Also, I have never rode dumbo. Not even when I was a kid. I must do that!

    1. I want to stay at the Wilderness Lodge so bad!! We are considering that one or Animal Kingdom Lodge for the Dopey challenge weekend. I wouldn't worry about a "beachy" feel unless that is what you want. I love experiencing the different atmospheres so I look forward to the beachy resorts just as much as the nature resorts!

  2. Oh how fun! I always knew Disney had a lot of races, but I had no idea they had so many, wow that is really cool!
    You'll have to visit Aulani, I haven't been to it since it opened. But just before they were ready to open I visited them. It's right next door to the Marriot and they share the same private beaches (or at least they did) and when I went out running one morning down the stretch of beaches I ran up in and through Aulani and it was beautiful.

    1. That is so awesome you've been to Aulani! Have you done a blog post on it? I'd love to see pics/hear your thoughts!

  3. Everything Disney is on my bucket list :) Princess & Avengers are my top 2 .. I just want to have at least ONE Disney medal on my hangers :)

    1. They are such fun races! I hope I get to see you at at least one of the runDisney events!

  4. Is do EVERYTHING an appropriate Disney bucket list? I've really been wanting to go to Disneyland lately though!

    1. Totally appropriate! We have a lifetime to check off things, so might as well make the list as long as possible! :0)

  5. I love this idea! I'll have to think about what is on my Disney bucket list. I'm dying to try Be Our Guest so that will definitely be on there!

    1. Be Our Guest is awesome! The ballroom is my favorite room and the cupcakes are so good!

  6. I love this list - great idea! I may have to make one of these in the future; my dining list would be sooo long!

    1. There are so many dining options, I chose to put some of my top priorities on the list for now and add more as I go along lol!

  7. Wine & Dine! I want to do that one so badly :)

    1. My husband and I are doing Wine & Dine this November! We are SO excited!

  8. Love the list! There are so many things on this list I want to do! Most of them revolve around either runDisney races or visiting Disney World for the first time. :)

    1. I imagine getting to Florida when you live in Cali is pretty difficult! If y'all move to Texas, flights to Florida are muuuuch cheaper :0)

  9. That's a great list! I definitely have a few more Disney races I need to scratch off my list. Love Saana. Yum!

    1. Thanks! I saw a Disney special on the Food Network not too long ago and they went to Sanaa and their Naan and spreads look SOOO good!

  10. Yeeeeaaahhhh...I'm going to have to copy this idea (and your list, haha). LOVE it. There are still a bunch of Disney races I MUST do, and I'm obsessed with trying new restaurants each time on there. You MUST try California Grill -- I definitely consider it a "special occasion" type of experience, but watching Wishes from the outside deck was AMAZING.

    1. I have heard amazing things about California Grill! I would love to eat there while watching the fireworks!
