Do you have a Disney Bucket List? You know, those things you want to do before you “kick the bucket”? Here is a countdown of the top five things on my own Disney Bucket List.
This is a seven hour tour that takes you behind the scenes at Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Creative Costuming, Central Shops, and the Wilderness Lodge. You will learn interesting facts about Walt himself, along with seeing first hand how so much of the magic comes together to create the wonderful vacations we all enjoy year after year.
One of our favorite parts of a Disney vacation is the dining. We love to try new types of cuisine. With this experience, not only do you get to explore the sights and sounds of a night time safari at Animal Kingdom, but your tour will take you to a secluded part of the savanna. Here, you will delight in a special dinner featuring African inspired tapas, beer and wine offerings.
I grew up in Central Florida, and remember the days when the Processional took place right down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. This was a highlight each Christmas season, and my mom made sure we never missed it. The Processional was moved to Epcot many years ago, and I have never gotten to see it since the move. I live in Tennessee now, so it’s not easy to just hop in the car and go, like we used to do. If I am honest, I must confess that the holiday crowds intimidate me. For this reason, we have never taken a Christmas trip to Disney as a family. But, this is definitely something I would love to see before I “kick the bucket.”
Have I mentioned that the highlight of our Disney vacations is the dining? Walt Disney World is the home of some of the world’s top chefs, and this one is at the top of that list. With this experience, you will be seated right in the kitchen of Victoria and Albert’s at the Grand Floridian, where you will dine like royalty. You will have the opportunity to interact with the chef and culinary team as they prepare your 10 course dinner. Yes, you read that correctly…10 course dinner. So, come hungry and allow plenty of time to savor every moment of this experience.
And finally, #1 on my Disney bucket list is….
This is a brand new experience that just started on December 2 of this year! This will take you on an incredible culinary journey through the three Disney Resorts on the monorail loop: Grand Floridian, Polynesian Village, and the Contemporary.
You will have reserved seating on the monorail, which will whisk you off to a different resort for every course of your meal. Your culinary journey will end with dessert, cordials, and coffee on a private patio at the Contemporary for prime viewing of the Wishes Fireworks Spectacular from Magic Kingdom. How dreamy does that sound?
Two wonderful experiences I have already marked off my bucket list are Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival and the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. What is on your Disney Bucket List? Did I leave anything out? Have you marked any off your list yet? I would love to hear about your experiences in the comments below.
