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!!

1. TOT
2. Big Thunder Mtn Railroad
3. Mission Space


I WILL watch the shows in:

1. Canada

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?

Amy

I've been going to Disney forever and I've never done Tower of Terror. This year will be my first time as well!

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.

*We will take more time at our resort and check out the activities there.
*Get the kitchen sink at Beaches and Cream
*Jelly Rolls - We kept saying we'd go to Pleasure Island, but we never made it there. I'd like to try Jelly Rolls.
*The shows in China, Japan, France and Canada. I haven't done them in 12 years.

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
