In 50 days I will be heading off to Florida to work for Walt Disney World on the Disney Cultural Exchange Program. If you would like to know more about the program and how to apply click here!
To mark such an exciting day I thought it was about time that I put together my Disney Bucket List. To get some more inspiration, I ordered the latest Walt Disney World brochure. Included in the brochure is The Little Big Book of Magic.
It’s a super helpful compact guide for anyone who has never been before as it lists all the attractions for you to tick off over your holiday. My plan is to tick off every single one of these boxes. I have only been to Walt Disney World once in 2013 and we only went for two days. I was spending my summer travelling in America so it was more of a whistle stop tour of Magic Kingdom. Whilst I squeezed a lot into that time, there is still so much of Walt Disney World that I have not experienced. Ideally, I want to do everything. Realistically, I don’t think it’s going to happen… but a girl can try!
I’ve put together a list of my top things to do this summer In case I don’t manage to do ‘everything’.
