What are some of your traditions or must dos when going to Disney?

Anyone want to share some traditions you do with your kids? I know some people must do Chef Mickey's on every trip. How about you?

Electrical Water Pageant! It's so silly, but it brings back all sorts of warm fuzzies from my childhood. I can't go to WDW without seeing it at least once!

When we went to Disney when I was little Mom sent us personal invites to Disney from Mickey. we got them in the mail and it was like Mickey Mouse himself wanted us to come. Talk about a bunch of freaked out little kids in a good way I have done something along those lines for my daughter this year and plan on doing it in the future.

We've only been for one trip but I'm already making a list of things we MUST repeat.
Sitting close to the castle for Wishes is a must on future trips. We just so happened to sit there on our trip because a bench in front of the castle opened and we were tired so we decided to wait for the fireworks there. It wasn't the best view of the actual fireworks...which was fine with me because one of my favorite memories of the trip was the castle projection show. I just loved it. If I want fireworks, IllumiNations is a must and we will also definitely do that again.
I think the only must repeat meal is Tusker House. The kids want to do BOG for lunch again but they didn't care for the food, so I'm not sure.
We will get new pressed pennies each trip, the kids loved that and I loved how much they loved it considering how inexpensive it was. I will also continue the 'tradition' of letting them pick one pin from the pin store in downtown disney on the last day of our trip.
