Magical Blogorail: Disney Bucket List

Welcome to those of you joining me from Meet the Magic. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail.

I love this topic. Walt Disney World has so much to offer and I may not ever see/do it all. It’s fun to spend a little time dreaming about what I would do if the sky was the limit. Some of my ideas are grand, others simple. Some have already received their checkmark, and others wait to be explored. Just like DisneyParks are ever changing, so is this list. As the Imagineers create new experiences, I’ll have to add to my wish list.

(in no particular order)

1. Watch my first daughter walk down Main Street hand in hand with her Granddaddy. Check.

2. Watch my second daughter walk down Main Street with Granddaddy.

3. Marry my Prince Charming at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion. Check.

4. Dine at Victoria and Albert’s chef’s table. Check.

5. Spend a night in a honeymoon suite at the Grand Floridian. Check (but I want to repeat this one.)

6. Go on a Disney cruise. Check (again, this one needs to be repeated.)

7. Spend a night in the suite in Cinderella Castle. (I’m wishing, I’m wishing…)

8. Dine at Citrico’s and Narcoosee’s.

9. Take an Illuminations Cruise.

10. Stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge (savannah view.)

11. Take one of the special Animal Kingdom tours.

12. Take my girls to tea with Granny at the Grand Floridian.

13. Ride Dumbo with my girls.

14. Attend Party for the Senses.

15. Be Grand Marshal of a parade at Magic Kingdom. (With my family of course.)

16. Meet Julie Andrews. (I know this one is really reaching, but it’s my wish list.)

17. Plan a family/friends trip for our wedding anniversary.

18. Dance with my girls during a Magic Kingdom parade.

19. Get first haircuts for the girls at Harmony Barber Shop.

20. Run a Disney marathon and be cheered on by my family. Check.

21. Run a Disney marathon and be cheered on by my family, including "Go Mom!" signs from my daughters.

22. Surprise my parents for their anniversary at Cinderella's Royal Table. Check.

23. Send my husband on one of the fishing excursions.

24. Get a massage at the spa at the Grand Floridian. Check. (Must repeat!)

25. Dance with Mickey on my wedding day. Check. (Total surprise! Thanks DisneyDad!)

26. Finally break down and buy a Disney Dooney. (After the diaper bag years.)

27. Go to Disneyland and get a tour from Chad at Days in the Park.

28. Try a Grey Goose slushie once I am finally not pregnant on a WDW trip.

29.  Attend a Wishes dessert party.

30. Never stop adding to this list.

This is a topic the Growing Up Disney family also had on our to-do list, so the guys have participated too. Check back tomorrow for their bucket lists.

Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Pursuing the Magic.
