    Most of us have said "I really must do that next time I visit" when reading through some of the forum posts, but often forget when the next trip comes around.

    Well heres an oppertunity to list down some of those things you're determined not to miss or do at some point during future visits

    They can be anything from experiencing a new restaurant, resort, activity, attraction, snack or just something personal to you. They can even be outlandish such as spending a night in the castle suite. :hehe:

    The good thing is you can return and add more to your list, and edit it once you achieve something from it.

    Sooo, what would be on your list?

    Making the rope drop at MK just once. We get there early, but never quite early enough

    I am hoping to do the Candlelight Procession and the Christmas party in November. That's all I have on my bucket list right now. Where can I find info on the MVMCP here on the forum. Is there one scheduled the first weekend of December?

    I made it once and got to see Mickey arrive on the train. The problem with MK rope drop is you have to allow an additional 30 minutes for travelling over the lake, and longer than normal queues.

    ==================================================================

    :donald: My List :donald:

    • Stay onsite including:
    - A monorail resort
    - A boardwalk resort
    - The Wilderness Lodge

    • At Epcot eat Table Service at:
    - Mexico
    - Germany
    - Japan
    • The Beauty and the beast show at Disney Hollywood Studios theme park at WDW. Somehow I've never seen this.
    • Do the House of Blues Sunday Brunch
    • Eat at Columbia Harbour House. I always forget about this place.
    • Ride Peter Pan's Flight again. I've only been on it once.

    That's all I can think of at the moment. As you can see it's more food related. Maybe that's why I'm overweight :lol:

    There are a couple of things that I (and DW) would like to do one day.

    1) We would like to go on a Disney cruise.:ship:

    2) We would like to do a backstage tour.

    The only rope drop that we try to make is Disney Hollywood Studios theme park at WDW to make Toy Story Mania, and whenever they have Star Wars Weekends, so we could make the lines to get a time for autographs (limited amount of passes).

    To go with SteamboatWillie....it appears we have a desire to stay at all the same places.

    Although, I've not heard too many things about Spain, I'm willing to give it a shot :wink:.

    I can remind you about CHH, we ate there last trip and it became a new QS favorite.

    Rope drop is whatever time the park opens - minus about 20 minutes. Arrive early.

    So, 9:00 opening = 8:00 arrival :thumbs:

    The earlier you go the better the odds are that you can be chosen as the "family of the day" and get to ride the train in and welcome everyone to MK from up above in the train station.

    ALSO, another benefit of early arrival is that you can take your picture in front of the MK flowers/train station with (1) fewer people in the area and (2) pretty morning sunrise lighting :lol:.
