Walt Disney World Bucket List

Y’all probably know that I’ve been blessed to visit Disneyland many times. If you don’t know that, you now should because it’s an important part of who I am personality: I love Disney everything!!! That being said – I’ve NEVER been to Walt Disney World before. I know, ridiculous, right? In less than 3 weeks I’ll be heading there for my first visit, and am SUPER excited! As I’m getting ready with all the trip planning, I thought it’d be fun to make my Walt Disney World Bucket List – all the fun things I want to check off between this visit and (hopefully) many more in the future.

  • We are going for my kids first time too this month!!! 🙂 We might be there the same time! We, like you, are HUGE Disneyland goers…so this will be one very exciting (but very new) trip for us!

    Love your bucket list!

    Question–I absolutely LOVE your disneyland activity/autograph book! Wondering if you have any plans or are making a Disney WORLD one??? I am in search of something like that ASAP! I just don’t know that I have the time or the resources to create something for my kids before we leave. So I thought I’d ask you! You’re so creative!!
