Things I have never done at WDW and am determined to do this time!

Every time I go, I try to do a few things I have never done before. They are usually things that I didn't know existed, but sometimes they are just things I have never bothered with.

In November I did the following:
-Went inside the church in Norway.
-Found the semi-hidden path around the Tree of Life.
-Rode the Jungle Cruise.


Next month I will:
-Go inside One Man's Dream.
-Check out the waterfall in Canada.
-Visit Tom Sawyer Island.
-Ride the Walt Disney World Railroad.


Anybody else have goals to try something new to them in the parks on a future trip?

Tequila bar in Mexico

This trip (in just over 1 week!!) I am going to
- see the movie in the Canada pavilion
- ride Tower of Terror (my DD13 won't go alone and she really, really wants to ride it)
- swim in Stormalong Bay and stay in the Beach Club
- eat in Chefs de France (always wanted to try it!)

It's fun thinking up things I'll be doing this trip that i've never done before. Thanks for the idea!

Last time we were at Disney World we did not go through or inside the castle! After we left I realized what we missed and could not believe it. I think I got too obsessed with following the touring plans I had laid out for us and so we never went that way.

We did do this last time and it was very disappointing. I hope you have a better experience.

If you have a car, on a sunny weekday go to the Team Disney Building which is across Buena Vista Driver from Plant Hollywood. Although it is an office building, you can go in it to go inside the world's largest operating sundial (and it is accurate).

This is now on my Disney bucket list. And we drive down so we always have a car!

Some good stuff on here!

Definitely need to check out the sundial. If not this trip, a future one!

I have never ridden Astro Orbiter either....but then again, I had never been on Dumbo until two trips ago.

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!
