I've had the privilege to visit Walt Disney World more times than I can count on two hands and while I am looked at as some kind of "Disney Pro" amongst a small circle of people, since I found a great community of Disney bloggers I've realized there are a ton of things I've missed both outside the parks and in! I'm constantly cataloging things to remember to do or try on my next visits so today I'm sharing my Walt Disney World bucket list!
WDW Bucket List: Outside of the Parks
Painting On De Bayou - Located at Port Orleans Resort - French Quarters
To be fair (to myself) this only became a weekly event this year and I have yet to get back to WDW since they started it but hopefully this will be available during my next trip because I would very much like to give it ago! These classes are offered weekly on Wednesdays and require reservations.
Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue - Located at the Campsites of Fort Wilderness
Billed as 2 hours of "rousing Wild West dancing, singing and zany vaudeville comedy" but really they had me at all you can drink draft beer, sangria and wine.
Chip n' Dale's Campfire Sing-A-Long - Located at the Campsites of Fort Wilderness
Bring your own marshmallows or purchase a s'mores making kit on site, this activity is followed by a Disney movie under the stars. Talk about a relaxing way to end a day at the parks!
Eat a Kitchen Sink Sundae - Located at Beaches & Cream at The Beach Club Resort
8. SCOOPS. OF. ICE. CREAM. Oh and all of the toppings they've got!
Have a meal at Victoria & Albert's - Located at The Grand Floridian
Fine dining at it's very finest.
Ride Characters in Flight - Located at Disney Springs
All my times to Downtown Dis, umm, Disney Springs and I never got in the hot air balloon, next time I will for sure!
WDW Bucket List: Inside the Parks
Attend a Fireworks Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom
How magical! For an extra fee you can get a reserved viewing spot of that night's fireworks and have some sweet treats. Two options are available; Plaza Garden View or Tomorrowland Terrace. I would opt for the Terrace as you will have seats but if this is all booked up on my next trip, I wouldn't miss out if Plaza Garden was available!
Save the Kingdom through Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
Hades wants to make the Magic Kingdom is new home but Merlin isn't having it! He needs help in gathering all of the pieces of his magic crystal to restore order in the Kingdom and that's where WE come in! As many times as I have been to MK I never knew this was a thing and it sounds like so much fun!
Take on a quest for A Pirates' Adventure Treasure of the Seven Seas
Another fun, hidden gem of the Magic Kingdom I had not idea existed! You are given a map and must explore Adventure Land and fight off enemies.
Attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
I've had the pleasure of attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, (while I'd love to attend again) the next holiday party I go to has to be Not So Scary Halloween. With new shows and overlays added over the past few years this party is one that I have to see! Here's hoping the Hocus Pocus show is still around by the time I can get there!
Get my kid's haircut or my husband's haircut at Harmony Barber Shop
Do they do women's haircuts? I mean, I'd totally get my haircut there too! I've read about their "my first haircut" package and it sounds adorable but I'm not sure if I'll be in WDW with any kids young enough for it to be their first haircut but it would still be fun to experience none the less!
Attend the Frozen Ever After Dessert Party Located at EPCOT
This dessert party comes with a ride on Frozen Ever After and unlimited drinks (I've read this party is the most bang for your buck) and all of the food and drinks are Frozen themed (duh!!)
There's my WDW Bucket List (for now). It is ever growing so please, if there's something you loved and are curious to know if I've experienced it, let me know! If I haven't I'll add it to the list!
