Disney "Bucket List"

Does anyone else have a wish list of things that they want to do at Disney in their lifetime?

Things on my bucket list:
-meet as many characters as possible in one day (got the idea from Kenny the Pirate site)
-go on tours
-visit a water park (or two)
-stay and watch the Kiss Goodnight
-attend MNNSHP and MVMCP (will be hard since I'm a teacher and don't have those times of year off!)
-stay at Fort Wilderness (after I get a trailer with AC!)

The last time I went, I crossed off one thing on my list - to visit all 4 parks in one day.

Anyone else??? Looking for more ideas to add to my list!

POR - August, 2006, CSR - July, 2007, ASMo - March, 2012, (1st solo trip!) ASMu - July, 2012, POP and US - July, 2014

I definitely have a Disney bucket list!

Eat at Victoria and Alberts
Work for Disney
Visit Disneyland and tour Walt's apartment
Stay at Aulani
Go on the DIS ABD London and Paris trip

There are a few that I've been lucky enough to see realized recently, such as a stay at the Grand Floridian. I'll just keep dreaming that some the ones above may happen one day!

It would be really cool to see the now defunct river country and discover island, but that will never happen, so I suppose what I would like to do is any behind the scenes stuff I can. Disney has this amazing way of keeping the immersion no matter what. You always feel like you left the real world behind when you make it to the parks. I wanna know how they do it.

1. Visit Disneyland
2. Visit MK at Christmas
3. Get an extended family photo in front of Cinderella's castle (we took one in '05, and we are planning a trip next year, but everyone won't make it).
4. Participate in the flag ceremony.

I have many still on my bucket list...
  • Stay on property at each of the resorts (I've never stayed on property at WDW as yet, so that's LOTS of trips..!)
  • Visit TokyoDisney and DisneySea
  • Stay at the Disneyland Hotel at DLRP - the only one I've not stayed in yet!
  • Visit Disneyland and California Adventure
  • If I ever get married, I love the idea of a Fairytale Wedding, IF the groom complies!
  • If not, I'll settle for a partial DisneyMoon.
  • Attend MNSSHP!
  • Participate in a RunDisney event.
  • and finally...
  • Collect all the mugs! (Seriously though, I love Disney mugs and go into my local Disneystore pretty much weekly, to check out their mugs.)

I'd also be interested in doing both of these. Can anyone tell me how?

Especially, has anyone been able to get a clear picture of the last scene in the Haunted Mansion where a hitchhiking ghost is in your doom buggy with you? Unless you're lucky enough that the ride stops when you're at that scene, how else can you get a good picture of that? I know the flash would totally wipe it out, but without it I end up with just a fuzzy blur.
