Countdown to Disney: 52 Weeks


Activities for Week 52

I reviewed my list of goals for my (now cancelled) 2016 trip. They were:

  • Record ride order on park map
  • Eat a Disney Cupcake (not the grey stuff)
  • Pick-A-Pearl
  • Get three autographs
  • Buy a pair of earrings from a country in the world showcase (not Mexico)
  • Ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • See Festival of the Lion King
  • Watch the Main Street Electrical Parade
  • Take photos and record info for three excellent experiences with Cast Members, so I can give them a shout-out after
  • Eat dessert poop in Animal Kingdom
  • Take three photos of Jimmy or myself each day
  • Be a Fairy Godmailer.

I still love the idea of recording the order I experience rides on an extra park map and dating it. Knowing my path will be so helpful when trying to write a trip report or caption pictures. Trying out a new Disney cupcake remains a fabulous idea. I still want to do the pick-a-pearl in Japan, and purchase another set of earrings in Epcot- the pair on my last trip was Mexico, which is why it is the exception. I still wish to experience Seven Dwarfs Maine Train, Festival of the Lion King, and the Main Street Electrical Parade. If I can muster the courage, I plan to get three autographs while there. Taking photos of ourselves and cast members still both seem like sound ideas. I’m super excited to be a Fairy Godmailer too. So, the only thing I need to change- NO MORE ANIMAL POOP DESSERTS. 😦 😦 😦 Sadness.


Binder Updates

I’ve added a list of the goals mentioned above to the front of the binder. I also found some page protectors in our office supply stash, so I’ve been adding maps, times guides, and other goodies to those. I plan to put them in the appropriate sections when I’m done organizing them.


Upcoming Master To Do List

  • Watch another movie
  • Checkout new planning DVDs
  • Find a Disney recipe to try
  • Finish making the headers for the DHS section of the binder
  • Start a penny & quarter jar (for pressed pennies)

Movie Updates

Still at 1 of 26. Hoping to get in Lilo & Stitch (on Netflix) by the end of the month.

Resource of the Week

The official Disney Parks Blog is a great way to keep up with park news!

WDW Virtual Visit

This week I need some cheering up, so I took a ride on one of my favorites…Pirates of the Caribbean! “We wants the redhead!”

One thought on “Countdown to Disney: 52 Weeks

  1. We got *so* lucky our last trip! I think we did everything we wanted to =D I’m most excited to see new shows/exhibits/etc. since there’s so much change happening in the parks. However, I’m sure you’ll share some items that sound fun/interesting that’ll get added to my list before the next time I go 😉 Reading your blog gives me the itch to go back already!
