Great tread idea! I've gotten to ride Space Mountain with the lights on-- it was very cool!
1. Go on Nemo (still haven't been able to stomach that long of a wait and haven't been since it was 10,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
2. Go to Tom Sawyer Island. I've been to DLR about 20 times and I've never been on, if you can believe it!
3. Travel the RoA. I can't remember if I've ever actually done it, so if I have, it must have been when I was little.
4. Get into Club 33.
5. Stay at the Gran Californian. Until my last trip in September, I'd never stayed on property (we stayed at Paradise Pier).
I described it in book 1, but I haven't been inside: I would love to tour Walt's apartment.

Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!

I've already had three big Disney vacations in the last five years, so I could pretty much die happy right now.
However, it would be nice to . . .
- Visit Disneyland again someday with my siblings.
- Watch Fantasmic and World of Color with someone I love.
- Walk away from Animation Academy with a drawing I'm proud of.
- Have an artist draw a portrait of me- and then draw a portrait of the artist.
- Watch an official Disney artist sketch out a character.
- Meet Maynard and make strange voices together.
- Get chosen for audience participation in Laughing Stock Co.
- Become Billy's "target" during Billy Hill.
And on a slightly less probable note:
- Visit Club 33.
- Perform as a Jungle Skipper.
- See Walt's apartment.
- Stay at the Dream Suite.
- Eat at the Blue Bayou until I'm actually full.
- Don a shiny blue vest, sit down at the Coke Corner piano, and tickle the ivories while hoping nobody realizes I don't work there.
I want to sit in the chair that is on the "porch" of one of the Main Street shops.
My friend Julie and I do that almost every time we go! Great place to relax and people watch. I always inform others who are sitting there with us that the store front used to be a women's lingerie shop and they never believe me (it's true!).
I've seen some of these on others' bucket lists posted here (which relieves me - I'm not alone!) but here's my list (some of these are unlikely or impossible, BTW):
1. Eat at the "Blue Bayou" on my birthday
2. Visit the park with my mom one more time before she passes (she's 86 now, in a wheelchair and on the other side of the country, but if I can manage it...)
3. Get an entire log all to myself on "Splash Mountain" again (happened to me once - it was awesome!)
4. Get to go inside the Primeval World
5. Spend the night in Walt's apartment - wake up to the sounds of Disneyland opening for the day.
6. Watch fireworks from the top of the castle
7. Watch "Fantasmic" from Club 33
8. Spend the night on Tom Sawyer Island
9.Spend a week at the park and stay at the Grand Californian hotel.
10. Be a guest host on "Storybook Land"
I find it amusing beyond description that so many list riding SM with the lights on.
Makes me feel like a member of a very exclusive club having done not only this very thing but also riding ST with no seat belts. Boy, how that makes for a very different ride...holding on for dear life and such.
Anyhoo...my bucket list consists of but two items.
- a meal at Club 33 with someone special.
- to one day become a cast member again once I hit my retirement years.
"The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."
Some unlikely to impossible items on my list:
Spend a week in the Dream Suite.
Ride each attraction by myself, in my own vehicle.
Get to the front of the line for EVERYTHING.
Dinner at Bue Bayou with Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Ariel, with no bill.
