    So here is my list... which I think is pretty short. (I looked at the WDW maps for the four parks to compile)

    Hollywood Studios
    Honey I Shrunk the Kids Playground (I only included this because I feel guilty... my kids would probably enjoy)
    Toy Story Mania- this will be done this trip!
    American Idol

    EPCOT
    The Circle of Life Movie
    The China 360 Movie

    AK
    Pangani Forest
    Flights of Wonder
    Maharajah Jungle Trek
    Finding Nemo
    The Boneyard (again guilty mom)


    MK
    Stitch
    Goofy's Barnstormer (again I had better get to ride this)
    Mickey in the Judges Tent

    Then I got thinking about Resorts....
    I have never been to:
    The All Star Resorts
    OKW
    SSR
    AKL
    and CSR... see why I am a bit nervous... I am not a risk taker!

    I have stayed at our visited the rest.

    If we did restaurants I would have the longest list. We seem to end up at the same, trip after trip! Someday I will eat around WS!

    It's always fun to try and knock a few off the list each trip!! :thumbsup2


    We've never been to Tom Sawyer's Island... I can't seem to interest anyone in that!!

    Jen... we have started posting, so post yours!

    I had to add park hours to his spreadsheet (yes what a nerd) and EMH since we avoid them!

    Looking forward to seeing your list!


    I always make one to take a few copies of, but he just sounded so clueless last night... mind you he does not want to hear it, or hear me painfully second guessing, analyzing...etc


    he has no interest... he thinks this is insane probably!

    How did I know you would have some!

    Looking forward to your list! I now CP is missing some essentials, but we will still let her DIS!:rotfl:

    Yep or anything else that you think is super impt or want to look at!

    CoP will happen this trip. My parents love it... the kids will hate it, and to be honest I love it too!

    :rotfl:

    Poor CP... we love you!

    Glad you posted... you will get to wipe out some so soon!

    It has been a while... someday I used to like exploring there!

    I wanted to be one of those cool Coca-Cola bears, but I got stuck in this dark cave instead.

    Those who seek the spirit of Norway face peril and adventure, but more often find beauty and charm.

    We sure better let Charleston Princess still DIS! She's the life blood of the Trip Reports Board. I think she reads every report in existence and responds to them!

    Looks like Hannah is liking this one!

    Aging myself here, but does anyone else remember a show called Car 54, Where Are You?
    I saw 54 on that car, and from far, far in the past, that came to the surface of my brain!

    I remember Car 54, but I am not aged I am blessed. I still love riding in these car(smells and all). They bring back memories, the goal is not to hit the rail, unless a child is driving. Then the goal is survive the car jerks and bumps.

    Charles likes me just to tell him everything. He is an auditory learner apparently! :rotfl:

    I am going to start my list tonight. It might be long. :rolleyes1

    Thank goodness I am still allowed to DIS! I wouldn't know what to do with my time. ;)

    I love you all, too, since you are the only ones that truly get my Disney obsession! :hug:

    :rotfl: I don't think I read them all, but I sure love the ones I do get to read on a daily basis! They brighten my day!

    Dare I say it? Dare I utter the words? (Hanging head in shame).

    We've never ridden the Tomorrowland Speedway either.

    Going to add it to my list right now. :rotfl:

    Ya think???
    It's high time you started earning these::earsgirl:

    If there's a size 1/2 in the letters, you might want to lower the admission of never having ridden the Speedway to that.

    Step away from the Dole Whips and ride, woman!!! :drive:

    MeMom thanks for the Norway pics... I knew you would have some!

    Car 54 was before me.. sorry!

    I think she did not know what was going on. She got thrown on it at the last moment... DH said they could both fit so I ran her over to that ride...

    Your list might be a dandy! I think this ride is on a lot of lists... it takes forever unless you get there super super quick!

    CP you have tried all the great drinks and treats of the world. That counts for something!

    I just posted it -- it wasn't nearly as bad as I had feared.

    The kids always want to ride it, but when we walk past it, the line always seems huge!

    Yes, I have sampled quite a bit of food and drink around the World. :thumbsup2

    Tuesday, June 23rd

    This day is free until our 4ish ADR for Mama Melrose with the Fantasmic Dining Package. There are lots of scenarios I have in my head:


    A- stay late at EPCOT on Monday and sleep in, pool time and head to HS late afternoon. Have dinner, catch a show/something quick and watch Fantasmic

    B- go to MK Monday night, stay late, sleep in, pool, and head to HS late afternoon...dinner, show/something quick then Fantasmic

    C-get up for RD and head to HS to ride TSM... not sure what else and then have an early rest/swim break before heading to dinner.

    D- RD at AK do whatever we missed, want to do again, break/swim and then head to HS for dinner and Fantasmic.

    To be honest I doubt we decide this before Monday night.

    *****I say sleep in, but we don't really sleep in, ever, especially at WDW. My kids move quick to see the Mouse and friends.

    My ticker is a day off, too, but I can't bear the thought of sending Tink back to the start.

    We've never done the Speedway either, but your family looks like they're enjoying it.:goodvibes I'll have to look at my ticker after this post. Today should be 30 days for us. We started our countdown calendar today.:thumbsup2

    WOW 1 month! I get to say that on Wednesday!:cool1: I would vote for sleeping in too but maybe just a relaxing day at the resort would be good too? I was laughing when you put you were looking forward to Indy Speedway! I DESPISE that ride. I am alone in my hatred though because the boys LOVE it and I cannot understand why:confused3:rolleyes1 Matthew can ride alone thank goodness which means Bryan can ride with Eric and I can just wait!!:goodvibes
