My 2010 Disney Bucket List

I have been thinking about life lately, and what I would like to do before I enter those pearly gates in the sky.  I have my regular bucket list, which I’m not going to bore you with, and then I have my Disney bucket list. I thought I would share with you what I hope to do before I kick the Mickey bucket.

  1. I would love to meet an Imagineer.  Now, no kidding, I kind of already have, but didn’t really grasp it at the time.  Carl and I were walking away from Vader after getting our picture with him and a man approached us and said he loved Carl’s shirt and where did her get it. It was his “Meet the Robinsons” shirt that the kids and I had found for him on  The man said “My very good friend, Stephen Anderson, directed that movie and he will flip to see someone has a shirt on from the movie.”  We all just listened with our mouths wide open… we were shocked.  Then he said “I am an Imagineer with Disney and he is going to be so happy to hear this.. cant I take a pic of you?” So he took a pic of Carl, shook our hands, and left.  We were dumbfounded.  So, I would like to meet an Imagineer for longer than 5 minutes.
  2. I would love to go on a Disney Cruise. I have actually never been on ANY cruise yet, and I feel a Disney cruise would be a nice way to start me out on them. I have no preference of the whats and hows of it all, just that I would like to experience one. Hopefully if Lou has another Cruise in the future I can travel on that one.
  3. I would like to have a romantic dinner with my Carl at Victoria and Albert’s. I have never been there and I would love to experience it at least once.
  4. I would love to attend a Wishes or Illuminations Dessert Party. I have never been invited to one and hopefully with living there I will be able to attend one at some point.
  5. I would like to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Wilderness Lodge, and the Polynesian.  We are hoping to try out all of the Resorts once we live there- here is hoping.
  6. I would love to spread good cheer all year round in the parks by giving away pins, taking people’s pictures for them, and helping those have a better vacation.
  7. I would love to attend every Meet of the Month with Lou Mongello, Scott Otis, and the rest of the awesome WDW Radio crew.
  8. I want to attend a Tea Party with both of my daughters at the Grand Floridian.
  9. I would like to take the Segway Tour with Carl in Epcot.
  10. Share WDW with my friends and family who come to visit next year.
  11. I would love a spa treatment.
  12. I still haven’t stepped foot into Disney Quest… need to get there.
  13. I would love to see Cirque de Soleil.  Dinner and that would be perfect!
  14. I would like to spend a night dancing in one of the clubs at the Boardwalk.
  15. I want to ride the Hot Air Balloon at DTD.
  16. I would like to hear a gospel choir at the House of Blues.
  17. Ride the TTA or anything else with a large group of Disney friends.
  18. Share Tonga Toast with anyone… never had it but I keep hearing about it. What is it about this toast???
  19. Swim in the Beach Club pool.
  20. Renew my wedding vows on the beach at the Poly.
  21. Get the courage to ride Space Mountain and Expedition Everest.
  22. Work at Walt Disney World

I know I probably have so many more, but these are the ones that I have down so far. What am I forgetting? What’s on your list? Please share in the comments section. Have a great day!


  1. #2 – Check!! 🙂 I have been on 2 Disney Cruises and can’t say enough good things about it! It was actually these cruises that have made me the Mousejunkie I am today! It is a whole new level of Disney Magic that you must experience! The shows, entertainment, kids clubs, character meets, and best of all, Castaway Cay – everything is a cut above – the quality and then some that only Disney can do!
    Please go on line now and book your cruise – you won’t regret it!


  2. PS – the Poly is great! Stayed there last visit and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Volcano pool is cool!


  3. The Animal Kingdom Lodge-Kidani Village is amazing. The pool is incredible. I have lots of pictures and will be going again in March.


  4. Tonga Toast had a different name when Boatwright’s served
    breakfast. My daughter would always order it & then always
    say “I keep forgetting how big this is…I should have split this
    with someone!!” It’s a fruitfilled french toast (thick slice) with
    topping. Worth having 🙂 I plan on doing the GF tea with my 8 yr
    old granddaughter. Going to try & do that before they start
    touring in late January. Disney Quest is a blast! Indoor virtual
    reality theme park – fly on a magic carpet thru Agrabah; paddle a
    raft down river & thru rapids; man a pirate ship. For old
    school – there’s an arcade with what seems like every arcade game
    ever invented. This is great rainy day fun! Cirque – what can I say
    – any of their shows are fabulous but I have a fondness for this 1
    in my backyard! There’s just so much to do here…your list will
    grow when you arrive!
