Magical Blogorial - Disney Bucket List

Welcome to the Magical Blogorail.  We are a group of bloggers who have come together to share our love of Disney. As you follow us through this month's loop, you will find at the end of each post a link to your next stop. Feel free to follow our blogs, add your own comments and share our blogs with your friends. This month we will be sharing our Disney Bucket Lists.  I'm leading the way this month, so thanks I wanted to say thanks for joining us and enjoy the ride on our Magical Blogorail! 
Now that I'm past my Park Commando days, I have a list of attractions or hidden gems that I now make my goal to find and see on trips.  Instead of riding absolutely every ride in the Magic Kingdom on our first day, I headed down Main Street, U.S.A. to search for the telephone so I could listen into the conversation between a mother and her daughter, talking about marriage and how to find her perfect husband.
My husband listening to the conversation!
And, while I did cross of several of the items on my Disney Bucket List during my January trip (finding Push, eating at Le Cellier, running in a WDW Half Marathon), I still have a few items left on my bucket list.  In no particular order, I'll give you my current "Top 5" goals for my Disney Vacations.

  1. Visit the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  As simple as this sounds, I've somehow never made it in to see this resort.  I've heard it's absolutely incredible, and the pictures I've seen make me want to buy in DVC to have my own piece of the property.  But, that's not realistic for me right now, so I'll be happy with a stop for dinner and a tour!
  2. Complete the Coast to Coast Challenge.  We talked about it for 2011, but we can't make it out to Disneyland this September.  While we're on this one...
  3. Visit the Disneyland Resort.  I haven't spent any time in California since 1997, and then it was only a ridiculously long layover at LAX International that left our youth orchestra stranded long enough to visit Universal Studios for 3 hours (yes, 3. luckily, we didn't pay for it!).
  4. Go on a Behind the Scenes Tour. Any of them.  
  5. See the Suite in Cinderella Castle.  Hey, a girl can dream, right?  
These are just 5 of mine.  I have several others, some as unrealistic as visiting the Cinderella Suite (playing at WDW again).  

I would love to hear what some of your to-do's are - either comment here, on facebook, or tweeting at me @DisneyBabiesBLG

And, once you've let me know, you should head over to Cooking with Mickey to see what's on Kristen's bucket list!

Make sure not to miss any stops on this month's Blogorail Blue Loop!

  1. oh... nice bucket list! I esp agree about the cinderella suite!!

  2. great list! I need to find that phone on my next trip!!

  3. Love your list! I would LOVE to stay in Cinderella's Suite too :)

  4. I was able to do the Keys to the Kingdom tour in 2002 (before kids). It was awesome and I recommend it highly.


  5. I need to add the Suite in Cinderella's Castle to my list too! :-) Thanks for the tip about the phone. I will definitely be seeking that out next trip!

  6. The Animal Kingdom Lodge is beautiful. If you make it out there check it out at night. You can see the animals roaming and in one area check them out with nightvision goggles.

    Disneyland is great! You must visit it and see how great Walt was with coming up with the attractions we love at WDW. You'll wish we had some of them!

  7. Love this topic!! We did the phone on our last trip...what a blast that was. I am going to have to agree with you on the castle suite...I would love to see it.

  8. Great list! The castle suite is tops on my list:)

  9. You know, I did do one of mine for my 29th birthday. I wanted to do the Bibbiboppity Boutique but it's so expensive and I wasn't sure they had my size so I had my hair done at the Barber Shop on Main Street: pink and blue and full of pixie dust!
    Rex was awesome.
