What a fun thread! Thanks!
Hi Sherry Wine!
Can you give us your list of "must dos" that you've already checked off, especially the off the beaten path ones!
THANKS!

One thing I love about Disney is that no matter how many times you have been, there is always something new to do! Reading this list has been fun.

For me, I have always wanted to:
- Do the Behind the Seeds Tour
- Take an animation class
- Eat at a bunch of restaurants: O'hana, Hoop-de-Doo, anything on the Boardwalk, I'm sure there are more!

You gotta be original. Because if you're like someone else, what do they need you for?

Just a quick heads-up - the Ellen ride (Universe of Energy) is actually at Epcot, not DHS.

I've seen the sundial. There's actually a store in there for CM's only. I went with my Mom who was a CM at a Disney store here. I'm a bit surprised at people not doing TSM because of a lack of fast pass. The queue is so fun!

I LOVED ToT but for some reason on our last trip I refused to ride because I was scared. I have no idea why, I used to love it! The anticipation is the scariest part, it's such fun!

They don't do the paintbrushes anymore :/

So many good ideas! I'm trying to make a list for my solo trip in feb and the family trip in August

Solo includes segway tour in Epcot.
If I woman up enough (via margaritas probably) I'm also trying RnR and ToT. Not sure I'll talk myself into EE due to the drop. I'm not a fan either! I've never done much with the countries except drinks and candy so I plan on actually going through them next trip

Our list of never dones and may dos
Dole Whips - we are from the Uk so not too sure about these
Dumbo
Watercraft rental
Big slides at the water parks
Teacups
Eat in Italy, Mexico and Japan (Epcot)
Sundial - never even heard about it but sounds good
Watch the MK fireworks from the beach of the Polynesian

I'm sure there will be more to add to the list before we get to WDW again.
