Disney Favorites and Plans

In light of our upcoming trip to Disney World, I thought today I would share a list of my Disney World favorite things. Instead of writing a bucket list like I did for our last trip, this is just a list of things we would like to do and hopefully will get to experience while we are there! Of course, some of these items were on my list from last time, because they are my favorites after all!

Disney Springs


I love starting off my trip with Disney Springs! I recently realized I haven’t been there since it updated during the day, so it should be fun to actually see it! While there, we will definitely be pin trading!

Disney Hollywood Studios

We did not go to DHS on our last trip. This time we will be there for half a day. We don’t have fast passes because the app only allowed us to have fast passes at one park and we have one later in the day for Epcot. These are the things I want to do at DHS:

Toy Story Mania
Muppets 3D
Tower of Terror – possibly just Dave and Zachary
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster – Single Rider Line


Possibly find Billy Joel’s handprint in front of the Chinese Theater



Epcot is a favorite all around. We will be going there in the evening and then the following day. It is where Gabbie is dancing. I was hoping to get on Test Track first thing, but I think we have to go straight to the dance show, so I’m not sure we will get to it. We have Fast Passes for Frozen, Soarin’, and Spaceship Earth. My favorites at Epcot include:

Frozen Ride
Mexico Ride
Illuminations Show
The Land
The Seas With Nemo and Friends
Spaceship Earth

Magic Kingdom


Obviously another favorite! We are spending a full day at MK followed by a second half day. We have Fast Passes for Seven Dwarves Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Splash Mountain. Other plans include:

The new opening castle show
Space Mountain – possibly just Dave and Zachary
Buzz Lightyear Ride + Photo Recreation
Journey of the Little Mermaid
It’s A Small World
Mickey’s Philharmagic
Peter Pan
Winnie The Pooh
Haunted Mansion


Pirates of the Caribbean
Jungle Cruise
Tom Sawyer’s Island
Carousel of Progress
Zachary wants to go on the Main Street Vehicles

Animal Kingdom

We have a half day saved for the Animal Kingdom. We have Fast Passes for Na’vi River Journey and Everest. We also want to go on the Safari and see the Lion King show.

Boardwalk Area


We usually stay at the Swan or Dolphin hotels and enjoy exploring the Boardwalk and the Beach Club! We also like swimming in our hotel pool!

The last thing I always like to do is to look for Hidden Mickeys! Have I missed any favorites that you recommend?
