My Disney Bucket List

Updated: Aug 19

Does anyone else love writing lists? Maybe you like writing lists pertaining to all things Disney? Maybe I'm the only person who shouted "yes" to that second question...If you answered yes to either of those questions, you should stop what you're doing and write a Disney Bucket List. Jot down anything and everything, dreams and even bigger dreams, that you want to do in the Disney Parks before you die. Next, visit the parks and scratch at least one thing off of your list. You'll be done in no time! Here is my personal Disney Bucket List (separated into three parts) to give you some ideas!

  7. Take someone on their first visit to ANY Disney Park

I took one of my mom's best friends to Disneyland in October 2019, and it was her first

visit to a Disney Park...ever. When I asked Mrs. Vicky what she thought about Disneyland

Park, she said, "It's like a storybook that opened, and I'm walking through it." This day

was one that I'll never forget, and if you ever have the chance to show someone a

Disney Park for the first time, I highly suggest it. It wasn't even on my Disney Bucket List

until I got to witness an adult experience the utter joy and magic of Disneyland Park.
