What’s on your Disney Bucket List? I’m not talking about things like spending a night in Cinderella Castle, I mean something achievable. When you look at the top item on your list, what is keeping you from doing it? I would like to encourage you to start taking the steps that you need to take in order to cross that item off of your list.
The older I’ve grown, one thing has become increasingly clear. The best memories are made by experiences, not things. Things can be nice, but I’d rather look back on my pictures and think about how much fun something was, than to have more stuff that I don’t really need.
Let’s get back to that Disney Bucket List. For years the top thing on mine was to visit Walt Disney World. I wanted to go so badly that I would dream about it. Fast forward a few years, I now live close enough that we can tell time in our house by what fireworks we hear in the distance.
I had two other items that were near the top of my list. One item was that I wanted to return to Disneyland, which I had visited with my family as a child. The other was that I wanted to go on a Disney Cruise. I went on my first cruise earlier this year, and I’m about to head to Disneyland for the third time in two years.
What I am trying to say is this. Dream big dreams, and then figure out how to make them come true. Walt Disney is credited as saying “if you can dream it, you can do it”. There are some sources who say that the quote wasn’t actually from Walt Disney himself, but that doesn’t matter. It’s a great thought. If there is something that you dream of doing, make it happen. Whether it’s taking a behind the scenes tour or a trip to Aulani (or something in between), check an item off of that Bucket List. You deserve it.
