Disneyland bucket list!

Creating a bucket list makes everything more organised and easier to follow. Especially if it’s for something as big (and chaotic) like a Disney theme park.

Now, I’m not going to Disneyland any time soon, but it’s nice to keep a bucket list anyway, so that you know what to do when you get there… eventually. Plus, it could give your parents or partner a hint that you want to go soon. So, here’s my Disneyland bucket list:

1.Meet all the characters, and have their autograph and a photo with them.


This will be very difficult to accomplish, but it’d be awesome to meet as many characters as possible.

2.Have a photo outisde the castle



A sweet, typical, cliche photo for the Instagram likes. It’s mandatory!!

3.Shout “Andy’s coming!” at the Toy Story characters

Whether it’s true or not, I don’t know, but apparently they’ll fall on the floor if you shout this. I think it’s definitely worth a go – curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back!


Disneybounding is so fun and creative. Think of the cute photos you can get in your Disneybound outfit!

5.Spend New Years/Christmas/Halloween there

This will be pretty much impossible to do all in one year, but I would love to spend these occasions in Disneyland over the years, at least once. The decorations and vibe look amazing!

6.Steer the Mark Twain boat

Again, I don’t know if this is true, but apparently if you ask to steer it, you can. It could be worth a shot?

7.Get a hat at The Mad Hatter

A mandatory Disney goal!! Plus, why not have your name embroidered on a set of ears?

8.Ride the Teacup ride at night

The Teacup ride looks so beautiful at night. And if you’re there with your partner, it would be quite romantic!

9.Visit on my birthday/birthday weekend

When you visit a Disney theme park on your birthday, you get to have a celebratory pin! How cute! Plus, what better way can you celebrate your birthday?

10.Watch the firework show

The fireworks show is always magical, beautiful and never disappointing. It’s the perfect end to a wonderful day at Disney.

11.Try to pull the sword out of the stone

Yes, you can actually do this!

12.Sit on the bench where Walt Disney dreamt up the park

What better way can you appreciate the magic of Disney?

13.Trade pins with a cast member

Trading pins with a cast member would be so cool. Who knows what cool pin you’d end up with?

14.Keep your hands up on the Splash Mountain drop

It’s so tempting to keep hold of the ride or hide your face from the water, so why not try to test yourself to just keep your hands up? The adrenaline might be more intense.

15.Send a postcard from inside Disneyland

Whether it’s to yourself, a friend, or a relative, a postcard from Disneyland would be exciting!

16.Tour Tarzans Treehouse

Tarzan’s Treehouse is like a mini adventure. It’s so cool and there’s so much detail inside.

17.Paddle through The Rivers of America in a canoe

It would be fun, healthy and insightful.

18.Get my caricature drawn

Ever wonder what you’d look like as a caricature? Now you’d know! Some of them are so funny, that it’s hard not to get one yourself.

19.Watch a parade

Parades are just as important as the fireworks show. They help create the magic and, in the parade, you’ll be able to see all of the characters and have fun.

20.Drink a Mickey’s Fun Wheel before riding the Fun Wheel

It’s a fun ride, and to kill time, you may as well have a fun drink that’ll make you excited for the ride.

21.Doll up for Dapper Day

Dapper Day is a fun, 50/60s inspired day. I’d love to go to one of these things because I love vintage fashion. And if you’re there with a partner, it’s a totally cute way to dress and spend the day together.

22.Get a death certificate at Haunted Mansion

Again, I don’t know if this is actually true, but apparently, if you talk to the ‘right’ cast member, they’ll know what you’re talking about and do it for you. It would be a pretty cool souvenir to have.

23.Get a candy cane at Christmas time

They sell out fast, and you pretty much need to get one – it’s Disney, it’d be Christmas time, and candy canes are yummy!

24.Spend a night in a Disney hotel (specifically the castle)

After watching the firework show, keep the magic alive by staying in a Disney hotel! It’ll probably be dead expensive, but it could be worth it.

25.Have Mickey Mouse shaped food (and take aesthetically pleasing photos of them)

FACT: everything tastes better when it’s Disney inspired. And the photos are so hipster, I love it. Plus, a lot of the Disney snacks are vegan. Even better!

26.Take a picture on the Teacup ride

The Teacup ride is the cutest (second to It’s a Small World), so of course you need a selfie!

27.Take artsy photos

Let’s be honest; most of the artsy photos people take in Disneyland are for Instagram or their blog or something… So, of course I’m going to join in and take artsy photos!

28.Go on the supposed ‘haunted rides’ and see if you can see any ghosts

Apparently some rides at Disney theme parks are haunted. Again, I don’t know if this is true, but it would be cool to see if you could find a ghost or notice any other creepy things.

29. Find at least 5 Mickey Mouse faces

Mickey Mouse faces are gathered all around the Disney parks. Some are noticeable and obvious, others are not so. They’re on the floors, the walls, some decorations… Anywhere and everywhere! So finding some Mickey Mouse faces and taking a photo for evidence, would be necessary. Obviously, you don’t want to spend your whole day finding every Mickey Mouse face, so it’s best to keep your goal at a low number.


So there’s my bucket list for Disneyland. No doubt, I will most likely add to this as time goes on, until I go to Disney! What’s on your bucket list for Disney?
