11 weeks and 4 days
Take a nice photo of myself in front of the castle.
Long story short, I am not confident in my appearance and I don't have a photo of myself in front of the castle that I like. Obviously, I was a child in '96, in 2010 my hair was bright orange and in 2014 I hate how I look. I aim to take a photo every morning in front of the castle in the hopes I'll get at least 1 where I look okay.
See Mickey and the Magician.
I am gutted that Animagique has gone, don't know if I've mentioned that before ;) but as Mickey and the Magician has taken over and been running quite a few months now, I'm looking forward to experiencing it in person. No spoilers at all please, as I've avoided them so far.
Do the grand circle tour.
Come on, you know I love trains! I also love the Disneyland Railroad and haven't done the full grand circle tour with Mam before. Maybe we'll do this on our 2nd to last day. Hop on at Main Street and enjoy the views until were back. If we're lucky the geysers in Frontierland will be up and running and we'll get a look at them even if the Riverboat isn't open. (It's due to open 2 weeks after we leave)
Get a funny photo on Tower of Terror with Kerri and Kris.
As I've explained, I haven't been on Tower of Terror yet and this time plan to do it with Kerri and Kris. It's inevitable that I'll scream anyway, but I'd love a really funny photo of us all screaming or whatever haha.
Eat at a different place every night.
I'm terrible at getting comfortable, finding somewhere I like and just sticking with it. I'm not the best eater, extremely fussy, but we've worked out a list of places and back up places were going to try. I'll make reservations on our first day for the whole week so I can't back out and just withdraw to my hotel buffet like last time.
Go up on the Panoramagique.
My last two trips have both been in down season. One October, the other end of Feb/start of March. Panoramagique is apparently open weather dependant but I've found that even in good weather it's been closed, so perhaps it's a peak season attraction. Anyway, fingers are crossed for it to be open this year so I can finally get those awesome views...even if I have to go alone!
Explore & photograph our hotel more.
When it came to doing my review on Hotel Cheyenne after my previous trip I was rather disappointed to find I hadn't taken the photos I wanted to. Not just for the sake of a review of course, but for me and the memories. This is my first time staying at Sequoia Lodge and it's so beautiful, especially at Christmas, I need to photograph it all!
Try to pull the sword from the stone.
I know it's 'impossible' (nothing is really impossible hence the quotes) but it's fun and as we were that at Halloween last time, Maleficent's Briar had taken over the area!
Wear my hair down every day.
This probably sounds super weird and nothing to do with Disney but ties in with the first point. I have extremely thin hair and can look like I have big bald patches when my hair is up. I noticed that this is one of the reasons I don't like many of the photos of me from my last trip of myself and the way to combat that is to wear it down.
Sit & listen to a band/musician.
To be fair I usually do this, but I really want to sit and listen to a good few songs. All of the bands and musicians are insanely talented and the style of music is something I really enjoy. I like to make sure I show how much I appreciate them.
I think the majority of these are super achievable and so maybe I'll do a follow up upon my return to see how I did. It's the first time I've made a mini bucket list specific to a particular event which seems a bit weird...technically it's not even a bucket list (a list of things to do before you die) but yeah.
If you have any Disney bucket lists you'd like to share, you're welcome as always to pop the link in the comments or let me know what 3 things you'd most like to do on a Disneyland Paris trip.
