Disneyland 2015 Trip Bucket List

I can't believe Eliot and I are leaving for Disneyland in three days!  I'm so excited for the final countdown!  Woo-hoo!!!  The trip completely crept up on me, even though I've been counting down to it.  They say time flies when you're having fun!  Things have been busy around here.  We've been working overtime to get a few new Happily Ever Hatter designs ready!  I've also been trying to plan outfits for our trip!

Since starting my blog, it's become a tradition for me to make a bucket list for each of my Disney trips.  (I've made a list for my October 2014 KeyCon trip and for our January 2015 WDW trip.)  I've found them to be pretty helpful.  I'm more focused on making sure I accomplish something I've wanted to do while on vacation!  I've also been able to make sure that I experience a few new things each trip.

I've been working on this bucket list for months, literally.  I haven't been to Disneyland since 2009 and there are a lot of attractions and shows I've never seen.  Add that onto the 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration, and I've got quite a list!  (In fact, it's such a long list, I had to split it up into two separate posts!  Check back tomorrow for my Diamond Celebration Bucket List!)  So, without further ado, here it is:

  1. I just made my own Disneyland bucket list on my blog! I got to some things on my trip but there are still plenty of other things I want to do there. Just an excuse to go back! ;)

    1. Hey Becky! I love your blog! I just read your list and I'm so glad I'm not the only one who wants to see a Disneyland cat! Ha ha! (That was on the section of my bucket list that I didn't post on my blog.) It's definitely an excuse to go back! I still have a ton of things I want to do there. Time to plan the next trip!!! ;-)
