Welcome to the Magical Blogorail, where a passionate group of Disney lovers has come together to share their experiences and love for all things Disney. As you embark on this month’s loop, you’ll find a link at the end of each post that will guide you to your next magical destination. We encourage you to follow our blogs, leave comments, and share our posts with friends who share the same love for Disney. This month, we will be sharing our Disney Bucket Lists, and I’m thrilled to be leading the way! So, thank you for joining us and get ready to enjoy the ride on our Magical Blogorail!
As I’ve left behind my “Park Commando” days, I’ve adopted a different approach for my Disney trips. Instead of focusing on riding every attraction on the first day, I now seek out unique hidden gems and experiences that add an extra layer of magic to my visit. For instance, on my recent trip, I made it a point to locate the telephone on Main Street, U.S.A. where I could eavesdrop on a beautiful conversation between a mother and her daughter, discussing matters of the heart and finding true love.
My husband and I were captivated by the heartfelt conversation, and it reminded us of the depth and meaning behind the Disney magic. It’s these enchanting moments that truly make Disney vacations memorable.
Though I’ve already checked off several items from my Disney Bucket List, such as finding Push the talking trashcan, indulging in a delightful meal at Le Cellier, and even participating in a WDW Half Marathon, there are still a few top goals remaining on my list. Allow me to share my “Top 5” current aspirations for my Disney vacations:
1. Visit the Animal Kingdom Lodge: It may sound simple, but I’ve surprisingly never set foot inside this incredible resort. The breathtaking photos I’ve seen and the rave reviews I’ve heard have piqued my curiosity and left me yearning to immerse myself in its beauty. While purchasing my own slice of this resort through the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) may not be within my reach at the moment, I’ll settle for a lovely dinner accompanied by a tour to satisfy my longing.
2. Complete the Coast to Coast Challenge: This challenge has been on my radar for quite some time. Although we couldn’t make it to Disneyland last September as planned, the desire to conquer this challenge still burns within me. As I strive to reach this goal, I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to experience the unique charm of Disneyland Resort.
3. Visit the Disneyland Resort: It has been over two decades since I last stepped foot in California, and even then, it was just a brief layover at LAX International. This time, I hope to truly explore the magic of the Disneyland Resort, taking in everything it has to offer and relishing in the nostalgia and history that emanates from its very foundation.
4. Embark on a Behind the Scenes Tour: The idea of gaining insider knowledge and getting a glimpse behind the curtain of Disney’s storytelling magic enthralls me. Whether it’s a tour of the Imagineering Studios, a backstage tour of the parks, or any other behind-the-scenes experience, I yearn to delve deeper into the rich tapestry of Disney’s creative process.
5. Visit the Suite in Cinderella Castle: Call it wishful thinking, but I can’t help but dream of the day when I’ll be among the fortunate few who get to stay inside the iconic Cinderella Castle. The opulence, elegance, and fairy tale beauty of this suite would make for an unforgettable experience and a truly magical stay.
These are just five of the items on my extensive Disney Bucket List, some of which may be seemingly unrealistic. However, as a firm believer in the power of dreaming, I refuse to limit myself. I’d love to hear what’s on your Disney to-do list as well. Feel free to comment here, on Facebook, or tweet me @DisneyBabiesBLG. Let’s inspire each other to create magical memories!
