Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Orange Loop. Today we are sharing our Disney Bucket Lists and what you should add to yours.


There are so many fun and unique experiences on my Disney bucket list – dining at Club 33, visiting Walt’s Disneyland apartment, touring the Cinderella Castle Dream Suite…and the list goes on and on. At the top of my Disney bucket list is what I think may be the best way to experience all of the magic Disney has brought to the world. Someday I hope to visit all six Disney resorts around the world. While many of the parks feature similar attractions, each Disney resort is unique in its own way and offers an experience you can only get at that particular resort.

Disneyland

Disneyland opened in 1955 as the very first Disney park in the world. Walt could often be found in his park; in fact, he even had a private apartment built for his family above the firehouse. Though Walt worked on plans for a second park in Florida, he did not live to see those dreams come true. Because of this, Disneyland is the only Disney park Walt actually visit. Though I haven’t made it there yet, I plan to visit Walt’s park as soon as I can get there.

Walt Disney World

In 1971, Disney’s second resort opened in Florida. Walt Disney World is the Disney resort I consider to be home. I’ve visited many times and find it to be a magical experience each time I vacation at Walt Disney World. The resort consists of 4 parks, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Tokyo Disneyland

I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about Disney’s third resort, Tokyo Disneyland. This resort consists of two parks, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. The third most visited theme park in the world, Tokyo DisneySea, is why I want to visit the Tokyo Disneyland Resort. This park is designed around a nautical theme. As someone who loves being on the water and even has a few nautical themed rooms at home, Tokyo DisneySea sounds like a Disney park I would absolutely love!

Disneyland Paris

A trip to Disneyland Paris has been on my wishlist for quite a while. Sleeping Beauty Castle in Paris is absolutely beautiful. They even have a special show featuring fountains, projections, and more each night in front of the castle. The attraction I would be most excited to experience in this park is Phantom Manor. While I love Walt Disney World’s Haunted Mansion, the Disneyland Paris version definitely is the most creepy looking of the Haunted Mansion style attractions around the world. Other attractions unique to Paris include the Ratatouille ride, as well as, Crush’s Coaster.

Hong Kong Disneyland

I’ve long wanted to visit all of the Disney parks, but Hong Kong Disneyland became a resort I especially wanted to visit just a few years ago in 2013 when the park debuted a new attraction. Mystic Manor is a Haunted Mansion style attraction; however, this version features special ride vehicles and a different storyline. Mystic Manor’s ride vehicles actually operate without a track; to me the technology which allows the ride to operate without a track is fascinating! In addition to the trackless ride system, Mysic Manor features an incredibly cute monkey named Albert as the star of the attraction. Albert opens an enchanted music box which brings everything in the house to life as you follow him on the adventure.

Shanghai Disneyland

Disney’s newest park, Shanghai Disneyland, looks absolutely incredible. The park feature the largest castle of any Disney park. Shanghai Disneyland is home to an entire pirate themed land which includes a spectacular version of Pirates of The Caribbean. The attraction I would be most excited to experience at Shanghai Disneyland has to be TRON Lightcycle Power Run. Guests can actually ride a lightcycle on this attraction! I’m not sure how an attraction could possibly be any cooler!

Kimberly's love of Disney began at an early age and grew even more when her family won a Walt Disney World vacation from a local radio station. She grew up visiting the parks every one to two years and is fascinated by Disney history and trivia. Whether at the parks or at home, Kimberly is constantly looking for hidden Mickeys. She enjoys sharing tips and helping others plan their Disney vacations.

  • Great post Kimberly! So many great places to visit and immerse oneself with the magic that is Disney! I would love to do all 6 resorts as well — put it on my list!

    • So many things to add to the list! Mine keeps growing all the time.

  • Lee Beatens

    I’ve been to WDW and DLR and it was magical to walk ‘in Walt’s footsteps’ as it were! I have relatives in England who go to Disneyland Paris all of the time so this is the most feasible park for me to shoot for next. And it does have the most beautiful castle! Great list.

    • Disneyland will definitely be the next park I visit, other than WDW. I’m sure it is a magical experience to be in Walt’s park!

  • YES! I want so badly to make it to all of the parks. We’ve done the two US parks, but gosh the rest are so far away, aren’t they?! 🙂 Great post!

    • Well, you’re already one ahead of me! They are so far away, but I guess that will just make for extra special trips when we do make it to them.

  • Tokyo DisneySea is at the TOP of my “parks to visit outside the US” list! Quickly followed by all the other parks! 😉 I’ve been blessed to visit the 6 US parks but I’ve got get cracking on the rest! Great post!

    • I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Tokyo DisneySea. It’s such a neat concept for a park! Maybe we’ll both get there someday. 🙂

  • Rosanne Mottola

    Man, I’d LOVE to see these parks. DLRP is on the top of my list, and Shanghai looks unreal.

  • Amanda

    I would love to take a trip and visit all 3 Asia parks – Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.
