What do you PROMISE yourself you will do on your next trip?
So I am a BIG chicken, and I have decided that at 34, I should be able to handle these rides.
I am making a commitment right here and now, I WILL be riding these for the VERY first time in 3 weeks!!
2. Big Thunder Mtn Railroad
3. Mission Space
I WILL watch the shows in:
I WILL eat at:
1. Beaches N Cream- The Kitchen Sink with my family
2. Wolfgang Pucks Express
3. Crystal Palace Pooh Character Meal
I WILL NOT:
1. Let others dictate my mood for the day
2. Lose my cool with my kids or husband
3. Complain about the heat, I know its going to be hot
4. Cry when I leave.... ok, that one is debatable... LOL
Anyone else have any firsts and promises they have made for their next trip?

This time we have 8 day park passes, which is alot for us. I INTEND on slowing down and taking the time to enjoy the little things and not rushing from one thing to the other. Is this foolish?

Last year I managed Space Mountain for the first time. OK I did scream all the way and smacked my husband upside the head after for telling me it was no big deal, but I did it. This year I figure i can go ahead and try splash mountain, it can't be any worse.

Right now there's only two things I can think of. I've never seen the Flights of Wonder show at AK. Every trip I say I'll get to it, but then never have time. I really want to try to go this time!
I also promise that I will go to Star Wars Weekends at Hollywood Studios and stay as long as my fiance wants to...even though I'm not a fan of Star Wars whatsoever.

-We will TRY to do 10 day trips from now on- did our first one in January, and loved having more time to do everything!
-We will make sure to hit Planet Watch once an the AM to see a vet procedure- saw a gazelle getting surgery on its leg in January, and it was fascinating.
-We will eat at Yak & Yeti TS.
-We will do more of the Kim Possible missions at Epcot WS- the 2 we have done so far were really fun.
-We will try to see the B&B show at DHS.
-We will make a point of going to TL- we have been to BB several times, but never TL.
-We will do the FW campfire again- it was great!
-We will make sure we see the Block Party Bash at DHS.
-I will make sure my DH gets to go on a leisurely trip, so he won't have to rush around like we usually do- maybe he'll catch the Disney magic like DD and I have.
-We will visit AKL- have dinner at Boma and check out the resort.

Well, I'll be at DLR next week and I have never ridden ToT, so I promise to do it there.
It's California Screamin that scares the pants off me right now. Makes ToT much easier to ride
So I promise to ride ToT and I promise to TRY to ride California Screamin.
It probably helps that I'll be traveling with 55 high schoolers and they'll probably shame me onto both rides.
I wonder who will be the lucky one I barf on
