I honestly can’t believe it’s been a year that I started this bucket list! Disneyland has become more than a theme park to a place I can genuinely go and just enjoy to enjoy a break from it all. I’m so excited to renew my pass and enjoy some more Disney magic for another year. I’m going to recap my first bucket list, before I put out my new one, to see what I got done this past year. Check out my bucket list and follow along!


Favorites Things:

  • Paint the Night, Disneyland Forever, and Soundsational – Can we talk about how I thought I would only watch these once? I completely fell in love and have watched these enough to last me a life time. They’re the most magical things ever.
  • Characters – Whenever I would go to the parks I never thought about the characters, but let me tell you, they’re sometimes the best part of Disneyland. Don’t take the entertainment for granted!
  • Train Ride Around the Park – Sadly it’s currently down, but I got to ride the train around the park at midnight and it was magical.

Didn’t Cross off: 

  • Dole Whip – I don’t know why but it needs to happen soon so I can stop disappointing people.
  • Baymax balloon – I still really want it, but I think I haven’t because I really have no need of it. Sigh.

California Adventure

Favorites Things:

  • Ride Radiator Springs Racers more than 3 times in a day – THIS WAS INSANE. 1) It happened in August, which is still summer season and 2) IT HAD A 25 MINUTE WAIT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY. Plus, we had fastpasses so we literally got out and ran back in line. Seriously the greatest thing ever.
  • Riding Soarin’ Over California – This was my favorite ride and I’m so glad I got to say goodbye to it!

Didn’t Cross off:

  • Spend a whole day just at this park – This seemed possible when I first got my pass, but the more time I spent at Disneyland I saw that DCA is kind of a hot mess. I rarely spend time there anymore.
  • Swinging side of Mickey’s Fun Wheel – Okay, why is the line (for either side) so long!? Basically the reason I didn’t do it.


Favorite Things:

  • Enjoy Magic Hour – Shout out to the cast member that made magic happen! We got to the parks an hour early and we were waiting but a CM came and gave us a ticket to Magic Hour. Let me tell you, an empty Disneyland is a cool one.
  • Attend a Passholder Event – I got to watch Finding Dory a week early. Not an AP event but I also got to see a special showing of Aladdin a Musical Spectacular thanks to Disney Parks Blogs!

Didn’t Cross Off:

  • Stay at a Disney Hotel – I stayed at a Disney hotel literally right before I got my pass and I couldn’t justify another stay. Boo.
  • Disneybound – I always feel weird dressing too Disney, if that makes sense. So I just never got around to it. Plus I would Disneybound as Gelatoni or Honey Lemon but most of my clothes are black.


What should I add to my new bucket list? Let me know! Stay tuned for it because this time I will also include Disney World!

Just a twentysomething living under the California sun. I love putting words in sentences.

  • I’ve only been to Disneyland once as a kid when I was in 3rd grade. Hopefully you’ll get the rest of the things on your list crossed off soon!! 🙂

  • I don’t know how I’ve been so many times and still haven’t had a Dole Whip. Fail, I know!

  • Those shows and parades at Disneyland were so amazing, I’m so glad I got to experience them last year! I hope you get the chance to Disney Bound, it really is a lot of fun and not too Disney-obvious 😉

  • I love all things Disney but my husband and I do prefer Disneyland. Soarin’ Over California was such a fun ride. What are they changing it to?


  • I’ve never been to Disney but it is my ultimate dream! I will be going next year for my honeymoon so i need to make my own bucket list!

    La Belle Sirene

  • Yay! Definitely make one!

  • They changed it to Soarin’ Around the World! It’s the same just a new film and different scents!

  • I absolutely love them! Sad to see Disneyland Forever end! I need to try it soon!

  • Seriously same! I can never justify standing in that long line for a treat haha

  • Aw I’m sure you had a blast! Thank you (:
