Your perfect Disney Day

Got this idea from another group. If you were to wake up at Disney tomorrow, what park would you go to and what five things would be on your list to do?

After much deliberation, I've picked Epcot. My five things are:

1. Figment
2. Hang out at the France pavilion with Belle
3. Food at Sunshine Seasons
4. Tea with Mulan at the China Pavilion
5. Get a margarita and watch the fireworks

DH picked Hollywood Studios. His five things are:

1. Tower of Terror
2. Star Tours
3. Food at Sci-Fi Dine In Theatre
4. Indiana Jones (because he hasn't done that yet)
5. Fantasmic

I'd love to hear all your perfect Disney day ideas.

I would go to DHS and arrive before MEMH started so I could be at the front of the line. Then I would ride Toy Story Mania five times. After that I'd park hop somewhere else.

Boy this is tough. I walk around the parks a lot and then decide to do stuff. I usually set up fastpasses ahead of time, like if I'm going to DHS or Epcot for those top tier rides. Today was a pretty good day, I think I'll go with that.

Disney's Hollywood Studios
1. Frozen Royal Welcome (both showings)
2. Toy Story Midway Mania
3. Trolley Car Cafe
4. Check in at the Hollywood Tower Hotel (twice)
5. Great Movie Ride or Frozen Sing-a-long (I can't choose between the two)

honorable mentions
6. Watch Citizens of Hollywood
7. Meet characters (today was Doc McStuffins and Jake)
8. Watch Olafs Summer Cool Down party

I already had my perfect day in MK. Father's day 2011! We we're the first through the gates and after the welcome show straight over to see Rapunzel and Flynn. Rapunzel was late so my ds (only kid near the front of the line not upset) got to meet Flynn back in FL after walking over to the SITS he got to pull it out, the CM also tracked down a pin he was hunting for. Lunch at CP was wonderful and my ds did the conga line. We got on every ride in the park, stayed for Wishes. Father's day and my son's birthday celebration, it doesn't get much better!


August 2016 here we come!

Is Disneyland in California allowed for this because a trip to Disneyland has been overdue for me for a quite while. If so...

I'd be at Disneyland in Anaheim and I would

1. Ride Indiana Jones Temple of the Forbidden Eye
2. Get a Dole Whip
3. Ride Haunted Mansion and hopefully see the famous hatbox ghost
4. Get a corn dog from the famous Red Wagon
5. Meet Thor and Captain America (I've heard they moved their meet and greet spots outside of Innoventions last I checked.)

If it's Disney World exclusively, then I would be at Epcot

1. Ride Soarin'
2. Eat around the world at Epcot
3. Meet Belle in France
4. Spaceship Earth
5. Meet Aladdin and Jasmine over at Morocco.

Only reason why I didn't pick the Magic Kingdom was that there was no way I could only do five activities there! I can't!


"All my life I wonder how it feels to pass a day, not above them but part of them.

And out there living in the sun, give me one day out there, all I ask is one to hold forever. Out there where they all live unaware, what I'd give, what I'd dare, just to live one day out there."
