When we first started taking the kids to DLR, we were go-go-go! We really didn’t take a lot of time to smell the daisy’s. As a result there was a lot magic I was missing out on. So I made list (it is more of a mental list) of items I want to do.
It started when I had to cancel our WDW vacation in December 2017. We decided to take the money and do a different style trip than we usually do DLR. First, bumped up to the DLH (to this point, we had only stayed at PPH), then we had dinner at Blue Bayou and watched Fantasmic for the first time. The next trip we started to hit rides and shows we don’t normally do like the Sailing ship, The pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer’s Island, canoes, etc. I also have food/restraunts on my bucket list. So far I have I have marked off Blue Bayou, Riverbelle Terrace for the seated viewing of Fantasmic, Carnation Cafe to eat some of Walts recipes, and Cafe Orleans and got the gumbo, pomfrittes, and hot chocolate beignets.
Items I still have on my list:
Tours - Great Moment’s with Lincoln, the tour “Walk in Walt’s Footsteps’” and if they ever bring it back, the train tour so I can ride in the Lilly Belle car.
Rides - I need to finish the two main street vehicles I have not ridden on, Fire Engine and Omni bus. I want to ride in the front of the mono rail and Captain the Mark Twain Riverboat. Of course I still need to ride RotR.
Non-ride attractions - Animation academy, the bakery tour (we have tried 3 times and all three we were not able to do it), Frozen at the Hyperion, and story telling at Royal Theater (I saw Beauty and the beast, but I have it on good authority that they do other shows too, Rapunzel I believe?).
Food experiences - I want to do tea at Steak House 55 (both the Halloween and Christmas one), and Breakfast with Minnie at Plaza, Lamp Light Lounge (never been)
I want to have a “plaid” once in my life, even if it is shared (can be at DL or WDW)
What is on your list? I don’t care how simple or grand or which park, just share your dreams…
