My Disney Bucket List

First of all, what is a Disney Bucket List? Well, it's a list of Disney related things (activities, goals, experiences, adventures, dreams, etc.) that Disney fans want to do before they die or "kick the bucket". Although many Disney fans, including myself, are creatures of habit (eating Dole Whips, riding Space Mountain, seeing the Happily Ever After fireworks; all of these things must be repeated on every trip), we really like the idea of trying something new on every Disney vacation. Making a Disney Bucket List is a great way to organize your Disney "must-do's" and dreams. It's the first step in making those dreams a reality...

Years ago, during one of the early trips with my kids, I found myself wanting to try new things while we were there; but as with any Disney trip, there just wasn't enough time to do all of the things I wanted to do. When I got home, I decided to start keeping a list of the things that I would try to do on my next Disney adventure. Over time, my list became longer and longer - always adding more things to the list after every trip - so, I decided to integrate my Disney Bucket List into a website called Pinterest, making it a lot easier (and fun!) to keep track of everything that I wanted to do at Walt Disney World before I "kick the bucket".

I hope you enjoy reading through all of my Disney ideas and dreams. I hope it inspires you to make your own list - better yet, I hope it inspires you to make some of your own dreams come true! Remember what Walt said, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
