So it’s about that time. (Not hammer unfortunately).
It’s about that time for me to start making that trip to Disney. 48 hours from this exact time right now, I will be on my way to Orlando, FL, getting ready to check in (though I’ve already been in Florida for the past two days doing absolutely nothing but relaxing with my nana).
I started shaking with excitement yesterday night probably because most of the 8/8 arrivals got their itinerary yesterday so now we officially know what time we have to be there and be other places throughout the day.
There’ll be another post about all of that excitement in the next couple of days while I’ll probably be convulsions (there will probably be a lot of spelling errors).
But as for right now, this is the good stuff. Now it’s time for the bucket list!
I know what you’re thinking: Another one of those? I didn’t even read the 52 posts about the last one (pretty sure my mom was the only one). Don’t worry. This one is a little bit different. Drum roll please.
*viciously bangs thighs*
This one is a bucket list for everything that I’m going to do while in Disney! That’s right. Ranging from “take a picture in front of Magic Kingdom” all the way to “do all four parks in one day,” this list is definitely going to give me a run for more money.
If you didn’t figure this out from the last list that I had, I’m not a very active person and though I enjoy working out, I don’t run unless absolutely necessary (it’s never absolutely necessary), and I don’t like being in the sun for many periods of time. The sun and I have always had a love/hate relationship, and I don’t like what it stands for.
Anyway…back to the topic at hand here. Once again, this list wasn’t gathered from my big brain mostly because the sole time that I’ve actually been to Disneyworld, I wasn’t old enough to remember it. So, I took some things from the lovely tumblr users karynneandstitch and bippityboppity-bee and wordpress user themeparkprincess.
You three are the real MVP.

As you might’ve figured out by now, I definitely have my work cut out for me, but since there are 52 weeks in a year, even though I’ll only be there for six months, I’m going to try and do 52 things!
I’m exhausted just looking at the list, BUT WE’RE GONNA DO THIS.
Feel free to give me suggestions if you think of something better! (I like anything that involves food)
So there you go! One of these things as often as I can as quickly as I can.
Whooooo! Making magic is a little harder than I thought.
