Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration begins today, so to celebrate I am sharing my bucket list of things I want to do if I ever get to visit the parks!
Seven Dwarves Mine Train
This is one of the unique attractions to the Magic Kingdom and the combination coaster dark ride is definitely one I want to give a try.
Every Haunted Mansion is unique, and it is my favorite attraction, so of course I am riding the Haunted Mansion.
Be Our Guest Restaurant
When it comes to dining, I am usually one for quick service. But the ambience of eating in the Beast’s castle is too good to pass up.
This is probably the only attraction that I am determined to go on at Animal Kingdom. The lore and theming is so good for my Imagineering nerd heart. And I enjoy a thrill ride from time to time.
Tree of Life Awakenings
Since this show is unique to Animal Kingdom, highlighting their massive monument tree with carved animals, it is one I want to take the time to see. Especially since I rarely see anyone talking about it.
If you’re going to Animal Kingdom, you have to go see the animals right? And the perfect way to do so is with the safari.
Kali River Rapids
I enjoy rapids rides, even though you get wet, so that is the main motivating force to wanting to ride Kali River Rapids.
Slinky Dog Dash & Toy Story Land
The theming of this land is impeccable and I just want to explore every detail and enjoy the attractions like Slinky Dog Dash.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Since Disneyland hasn’t got it yet, I want to try the latest attraction Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. It’s fun to ride new attractions, especially one that has the mouse himself in it which has not happened before. And the engineering side is fascinating.
The main reason, and where I would spend all of my time, for going to EPCOT for me is to explore the World Showcase. I like exploring other cultures outside of my own so I would enjoy this the most.
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
In my opinion, the attractions in EPCOT are lacking. But the latest addition of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is helping. It is just now opened in Walt Disney World but is originally from Disneyland Paris, so adding more Paris to the France pavilion is a plus.
Photo with Spaceship Earth
This is probably a given when going to EPCOT. How can you go there and not take a photo of Spaceship Earth?
From the gothic charm to the delectable looking baked goods, Gideon’s Bakehouse is an absolute must for me. Just look at that cookie! I’ll happily wait in line for that.
Aerophile – The World Leader in Balloon Flight
I’ve always wondered what the purpose of this balloon was when seeing it in the background of vlogs and photos. And turns out you can ride in it! It’s a nice deviation from all the shopping and dining in Disney Springs if you want an experience.
As for dining, The Edison caught my eye both for it’s food and the theming. This 1920’s speakeasy boasts American foods, and is a easy option with a fun atmosphere.
Disney’s Pin Traders
I’m not a pin trader, but I am a collector, so I will of course stop to peruse the pins at Disney’s Pin Traders.
I’m not the biggest shopper, but what draws me to the DisneyStyle store is the fun interior with all of it’s photo opportunities be it in a tea cup or with art from it’s a small world. It is primarily a clothing store, so I’ll probably also check out the spirit jersey’s when there.

The Edison looks neat! I’m going to Disneyland for the first time next week and I’m so excited to see everything!
