Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Bucket List

It's been an entire week since Eliot and I finally returned "home" to the Magic Kingdom after almost three years of being away.  It's been a magical trip, and one that my soul really needed.  Of course, we have also finally been able to experience the 50th Anniversary of our favorite magical place!  I've been dreaming of this for years... 

As you probably recall, Eliot and I had originally planned to be at the Magic Kingdom on October 1, 2021 when Walt Disney World officially turned 50.  However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we decided to postpone our trip.  Then, we also had to postpone our 10th Wedding Anniversary Trip.  So this visit has been a long time coming!

Naturally, I had a bunch of things that I wanted to do for the 50th, and it all was on my bucket list.  I want to note that the final list isn't as long as it originally was, mostly because I kept whittling it down realizing that many of the things I wanted to do weren't available.  (Like getting photos with all of the characters in their 50th outfits...)

Still, it ended up being a pretty good sized list.  So let's check it out!

This ended up being a pretty decent list.  It's not too crazy, but still a lot to see and experience.  Of course, Eliot and I would also like to pick up some souvenirs for the 50th.  I have a loose list of things that we'll be adding to our collection like a Spirit Jersey, ornament and artwork!  I'd also love to find something that's really nice to display with our Disneyland 60th items too... like maybe a Cinderella Castle figure!

I'll be sure to check back after our trip to let you know how we did!  °o°
