Someone had a Disney "Bucket List" on their blog of all the things they wanted to do while they were doing the College Program. I haven't been to Disney or Florida in about 11 years and I was wondering what are some of the things that you HAVE to do while at Disney or in Florida.

I'd love to hear from everyone! Make your lists :D

I'm going to be making a vlog this summer about the things you must do during Disney that people don't usually know about. I'll end up posting a link for it once I put up the first episode! :D

There's a thread on here already that's a to-do / bucket list :

I'd like to add to mine eating at Cat Cora's restaurant Kouzinna at the Disney Boardwalk. Expensive, but worth it I imagine.

WHERE'S YOUR LIST?

Thank you very much for the link! Edit: I posted in that thread. I feel a little silly now. I guess my reasoning is that my excitement cannot be contained to one thread. I MUST EXPAND.

Also, it's totally cool to splurge sometimes. ESPECIALLY if it's for an IRON CHEF :rotfl:

I didn't make a list because I was hoping y'all could give me some inspiration when I actually get around to making my own. :D

I definitely want to ride Space Mountain with the lights on once.
I want to go around the Animal Kingdom- I've spent so little time in that park the only thing I'm really familiar with is Kilimanjaro's Safari Ride.
All the parades and fireworks shows are a must!
I will keep riding Soarin' until I get the top middle row.
I HAVE to try all the food around the WS in Epcot!
& visit all of the Deluxe resorts because they're all so beautiful.

isn't Flight of Wonder a show?
this also reminded me I need to add the sea raycer to my list
I have a lot of the same things as others have on their lists

last time I didn't get to go to Cirque, so that's at the top of my list for summer
I also saw some amazing pictures of cupcakes, so maybe get a friend to share them with me and try all different kinds (maybe not in one day)
go to Harry Potter world and try butterbeer
seaworld
CM behind the scenes tour (I did one at the seas, but I want to do one for a ride)
we did 4 parks, 1 day last time, so that'd be fun to do again.
visit all the resorts
go to the waterparks
mini golf at winter/summerland
