The Disney Bucket List

The Disney Bucket List

Read my second Disney Bucket List here!

Living in Southern California means Disneyland is a go-to place for everyone and I am always at least 20 minutes away from the magical place. So after many years of wanting one, I made the jump and got a Disney pass! I got the deluxe pass, which is the one after the premium, so it offers 315 days of Disney, which isn’t that bad if you don’t feel quite ready to shell out more money.

So in getting my pass, I got the great idea of making a Disney bucket list. Yes, I know I’m going to have tons of fun at the parks, but I want to achieve things and do the typical things you should do when you go to Disney. The parks have so much to offer and hidden gems that you may not see at first. So here is my bucket list, follow along! I’m pretty sure I’m going to keep updating as I go because there’s just so much! Here’s the Disney bucket list for your ultimate trip or vacation.
