The 2015 Disneyworld Bucket List

In a few weeks' time my family and I will be jetting off on holiday to Florida, and now that school is finished for the year, it's fair to say that the holiday excitement has kicked in. We're going for just over two weeks, and of that time I think we'll be spending a fair chunk of it at Disney. Please don't hate me for saying this, but I definitely think I'm more of a Universal/Islands of Adventure kinda girl... I mean, The Hulk, Rip Ride Rockit and Harry Potter, what more could you want? Nonetheless, here's 10 things I want to make sure I do this year.

1. Have a photo with Mickey, obviously. I don't think this one needs explaining, it's a must.
2. Ride Summit Plummet, again. It's the third-tallest and fastest free fall slide in the world, and I love very second of it.
3. Try Jungle Juice. This is exclusive to Animal Kingdom and sounds delicious; orange, guava and passionfruit.
4. Go to DisneyQuest, located at Downtown Disney. It's an indoor interactive themepark which is included with your park admission, I'm just yet to visit it. 
5. Eat at the Rainforest Cafe, and buy another souvenir tshirt. I have one from each year we've been to Florida, and it's a tradition I don't want to stop. 
6. Go on the Buzz Lightyear ride. I've never ridden this one before, and I'm not sure why I haven't
7. Get henna at Animal Kingdom. Last year I got the prettiest henna on my hand, and I'd love to get something similar this year. 
8. Go on the Tower of Terror without screaming. I'm such a wuss, and this is something I'm yet to do. But I'm 17 now, I'm nearly an adult?!?!
9. Complete the Speedway successfully. It's fair to say the last attempt I had was abysmal, and my passenger, my Dad, wasn't too thrilled by my driving.
10. Play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. I'm not entirely sure what this will entail, but I've seen it mentioned a few times and I'd love to have a go. 

Have you done any of the above?



  1. I'm going to Florida again this Christmas! I am also more of a Universal kinda gal, can't wait to see the new Harry Potter section eeeek!! :D I didn't particularly enjoy Disney, I found it all a bit scary cos of how fake and smiley it all was haha :'D I looved Epcot though, barely spent anytime there and it was the night before we left, I was feeling a bit homesick, so we just stopped at the English/Irish section and sat on the kerb eating fish and chips listening to a band play The Who songs live and watching all the drunken English and Irish people at the Irish pub haha! :D xo

  2. I'm going to Florida in a few weeks time too! (well.. in just under 6 weeks!). I'm liking your to do list! Definitely visit Disney Quest - I spent a couple of hours in there 2 years ago (mainly to stay out of the rain too!). Do it before it closes down!
    I think I'm with you on the whole Universal thing too.. the rides (IMO) are a tidgy bit better!

  3. I've done none of the above but they all sound extremely exciting! :) I'm sure you'll have an amazing time! :)


  4. I went on a family holiday to Florida when I was only 7 - best holiday ever!! And I would go again in a hearbeat!

  5. You must add admission into Disney's club 33....if you haven't heard of it you definitely need to look into it. An absolute dream. Have a good holiday and don't forget to eat some mickey waffles and a turkey leg!! Xx
