This will be our 3rd trip coming up in December and I'm going to try to make myself ride Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. I hate drops - and I'm really nervous about it - but I'm going to try to get on it this time with my husband!!

And I finally got a reservation at Chef Mickey's for breakfast, so I'm really excited about that!!

One thing I forgot to put on my list....as God is my witness, I will finally get a Cinnamon roll from Main Street Bakery!
Cinnamon roll is a must several times on every trip for us, usually on way out of park for the night...best breakfast ever!

Every time we go I want to check out Tom Sawyer's Island but just never have. I'm pretty determined to do it on this upcoming trip!

Also, not something I'll get to do on this trip, but I really want to stay at Bay Lake. We plan and book late and it's always booked by the time we decide to make reservations.

Do it! There are no drops! I hate the drops too. The only coaster you need to worry about at WDW is Everest. Even Everest is not bad for a modern coaster.

My least favorite ride as far as drops are concerned at WDW is Splash Mountain. I have only ridden it a couple of times and it has never been without a fight. I'm scared of heights and I just don't do well with it.

I rode TOT for only the 2nd time last time I was there. The first time was when I was little and I have been scared to death of it since. I rode it last time and actually liked it a lot. I think it is different because I don't get the sensation I am going to flip over because I am going straight down.

That is what I tried last time but when I went in they told me they were closed for the night.

We are planning our second family trip. I think this will be my fifth trip total. My list:

MK:
Hall of Presidents
Carousel of Progress
Tiki Room
Space Mountain (was down for refurb during our 2009 trip)

Epcot:
Get my kids' reaction to Beverly (got DH's last time)
If we have time, watch the movies at the pavilions, but we will spend our time in the WS this year visiting the holiday storytellers and doing the Agent P missions.

DHS:
We only spent a half-day here last time, so we missed A LOT! Most important/fun for me would be:
TSM (was down when we went)
Beauty and the Beast
Muppets
Animation Academy
Great Movie Ride
and DH would enjoy Indiana Jones

AK:
Finding Nemo
Flights of Wonder
Expedition Everest (FP were gone last time )
Rafiki's Planet Watch

We did some things on our last trip we have not done in the past. Watched some of the shows, went to Rafiki's Planet Watch, and ate at some new restaurants. I just told my husband when we are there in September I want to go on the Liberty Square River Boat, go out to Tom Sawyers Island, visit The Hall of Presidents, watch the presidents show at EPCOT, and my son and husband are going to do the Segway tour of EPCOT. All things we've never done (except Tom Sawyers Island when the kids were little) - even after over 20 trips to WDW. This is my 2012 WDW bucket list!

Love this thread!

For the Holiday 2012 trip my small "yet accomplish-able knowing my limit" list is:

*Spaceship Earth - Really, as a youngster I refused to believe that it wasn't some horrid ski-lift style ride that us chickens couldn't bear - then on the last visit as a grownup - we were all too tired to ride!

*Norway in Epcot - I usually skipped it. I know nothing of school bread nor the caramel love nor the Maelstrom.

*Dumbo - Ok, I am not afraid of it but last time all the adults were perfectly paired with their kids and...yes, I just took their pictures. This time I RIDE!

*Cupcakes!/DOLE WHIP! - Ok would you believe I have never had either one at WDW? I know, why do I even post?

*Eating where I always wanted to when I was younger but....I wasn;t making the decisions then!

Great thread! For our upcoming trip, we plan to go to Hoop Dee Doo, visit the Boardwalk area, and go to the water parks . We also try something new every visit, but have a list of must do's every year as well (like take the kids' photo behind the bars with Zurg)

Wait, wait, wait. What do you mean RRR has no drops? How is it a roller coaster without them? I'm confused!! (And one day I will be able to ride it, I swear! Haven't been able to yet with the kids.)
