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.
On March 13, 1928, as Walt Disney was returning to California after visiting New York City, he sent a telegram to his brother Roy. The message stated everything was OK and Walt would give details of his visit when he arrived. The truth was Walt had learned they had lost the rights to their cartoon character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
Always travel to Disney with Zip-Lock bags. They will keep your electronics safe during water rides or afternoon downpours. They are also great for packing a change of clothes for the little ones; And you can put the dirty clothes in the bag after they change.
If you aren’t able to book an ADR at your favorite Disney restaurant at first, try again (or ask your travel agent to try again) a day or two prior to the day you would like to dine there. Last minute cancellations by other guests might just work in your favor!
