Checking Things Off of My Disney Bucket List
Updated: Aug 20, 2020
On my most recent trip to Disney World, I went prepared to scratch at least one thing off of my Disney Bucket List. I am happy (and proud) that I scratched not one, but FIVE things off!
1. I took a picture with Sorcerer Mickey in Hollywood Studios!
This is the first of four Mickeys that I want to take pictures with in Disney World (one in each of the four parks). Mickey, unsurprisingly, is a very popular character to get a picture with in Disney, so we didn't get to chat at all with him. He was a character of very little interaction, which was disappointing. At least he's cute!
2. I stayed at another Disney resort, The All-Star Movies Resort.
You can read my full review of this resort here.
3. I ate a Mickey-shaped pretzel...finally!
I don't know why I've never gotten a Mickey pretzel before...but I finally got one while in Frontierland on a very very hot day in Magic Kingdom. It was good, but it definitely wasn't on the same level as an Auntie Anne's pretzel! It tasted like your average soft pretzel, except it was Mickey-shaped, so of course I loved it!
4. I ate a few snacks around the countries in Epcot.
The Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich from L'Artisan des Glaces in France was so good! I got the strawberry-flavored one, and my friend got the chocolate one. Both were delicious! Plus, they come wrapped up super cute (pictured below).
In Germany, I ate a Bratwurst and homemade chips with paprika on them. This was SO GOOD and very filling. I would highly recommend this to anyone "eating around the world" in Epcot!
I know this technically isn't considered a snack that you can always get in Epcot, but I got the Violet Lemonade at the Flower and Garden Festival. It was so small, but DELICIOUS. It is a frozen drink that is only sold during Flower and Garden in Epcot, but I personally think it tastes similar to the Night Blossom drink in Animal Kingdom.
5. I watched the "Kiss Goodnight" in Magic Kingdom.
Stay about 15 minutes after Magic Kingdom officially "closes" at night, and you will get to experience the "Kiss Goodnight." It's basically telling everyone goodnight, but the castle is lit up so beautifully, and it just gave me goosebumps. I'm so cheesy, but whatever. It was magical, and it was the perfect way to end our nights spent in Magic Kingdom.
