It occurred to me that if you're fortunate enough to visit the parks regularly, you probably skip certain attractions if the line is too long or if you're short on time because you know you'll be back. For me, it goes even further than that. I take a very laid-back approach to touring the parks, sometimes riding only a handful of rides in one day even though I spend a lot of time in the parks. This time, I plan on doing things I haven't done before or haven't done in a long time and I plan on packing a lot in. Here are my goals for this trip:
1. Try Via Napoli. Okay, that's an easy one. I like to eat. And from what I've heard, Disney has finally done pizza right.
2. Get everyone on Splash Mountain--none of them have ever been. It's one of my favorites, but I tend not to do it because my kids are little enough that they think it's scary.
3. Tour Boardwalk.
4. Ride Spaceship Earth. How did I miss this one? I mean, it's right there when you walk into Epcot and it happens to be huge!
5. Ride Space Mountain. I've only been on it once and to be honest, I think it's a little scary.
6. Watch the entire Dream along with Mickey show in front of the castle. I rarely watch the whole thing.
7. Get to the Magic Kingdom when it opens! I absolutely can never make opening at this park.
8. Get some great photos of Toontown. Time is running out.
10. Try to time a ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad during Wishes.
11. Take a ton of pictures. I'm always needing them for this blog and for Chip and Co.
12. Attend at least one Disney meetup. Right now I'm signed up to go to the Disney Food Blog's Foodie Fest. I'm also doing a meet up with Chip and Co readers in the Magic Kingdom. You can read about it on our Facebook page. Join us if you can!
13. Try to get a table at La Hacienda de San Angel, the new Mexican place in Epcot. I know, again with the food. The pictures from last night's press event looked great.
15. See Festival of the Lion King again.
Okay, and if I get up the nerve, I'll ride Tower of Terror too. You know, for the twelve-year old.
Now I only have two more weeks to resign myself to ride Space Mountain. I can't wait!
