#23 Kilimanjaro Safari

I love me some wild animals and this is probably as close as I am ever gonna get to a actual African Safari.  There is nothing like a open air vehicle to get some awesome shots of the animals too!  I can't wait!

#25 - Sci-Fi Dine-In

Image by matthewcgallagher

I have watched countless WDW travel planning videos in my almost 30 years and Sci-Fi Dine-In has always been the one restaurant that I thought looked the coolest.  Eating in a car while watching a movie screen?!  What isn't to love!  I made sure to tell Heather that I really wanted to eat here and luckily she has never eaten here either so we get to experience it for the first time together!  Now let's hope that the food is good!  =)

#26 - Country Bear Jamboree

I was sooo sad when they closed down this attraction at Disneyland.  Yes it is cheesy and yes I have seen it a billion times and yes I took it all for granted. lol.  I am so glad they still have it at WDW though and I can't wait to see it again because I miss it =)

#27 - The Hotels

Image by

Oh man. I have seen pictures and video tours and highlight reels of all the amazing hotels at the WDW complex. There are soo many of them and I know there is no way I am gonna be able to see ALL of them on this trip, but I seriously can't wait to get a glimpse of even a few of them!  Disney is sooo amazing at themes and making you feel like you are in another world and I am guessing that these amazing hotels are no exception!

#28 - Pressed Pennies!

Image by bigbrian-nc
Bet ya'll didn't know that I collect pressed pennies!!  I don't only collect Disney ones either! Anywhere I travel to, if there is a machine, I get a penny.  I have even got my friends into sending them to me from the places they have traveled as well.  I have pretty close to all the available pennies they have to offer at Disneyland, so I can't wait to get some WDW ones!  Oh, and a WDW pressed coin book =)

I have heard so many amazing things about this place!  Heather is always talking about the Holiday Sandwich and even though they probably won't have it on the menu yet when we are there, I am still excited!  I love me a good turkey sandwich =)

#32 - Haunted Mansion

Image by Darrins

Just look at it!!  I love the look of WDW's Haunted Mansion and I can't wait to see it in person!  I have heard about the interactive queue they added, but I haven't really read anything about what it is exactly, so that should be a fun experience too!

#33 - Dole Whip!

Image by TheWall2k

Yes I have had a Dole Whip before.  Both here at Disneyland and in Hawaii.  BUT, I have never had it with Orange Soft Serve!  I didn't even know that was an option because here at Disneyland we only have Pineapple Soft Serve!  When I came across this discovery while browsing my WDW Dining app and I knew I was gonna have to try it.  A new take on a old favorite has me very excited =)

At California Adventure, one of my favorite things to do is draw a character at the Animation Academy.  It took me forever to finally try it and ever since then it has become a must-do every time we are at the park.  I am excited to continue that love when I am at WDW.  Along with all the other fun and interesting things that can be found  in the Magic of Disney Animation building!

35 Days To Go!

#35 - Seeing Heather in action on Toy Story Mania!

Heather is a DIE HARD Toy Story Mania addict.  There is really no other way to put it.  She did a layout on her best score ever for goodness sake!  =)  I personally love love love that ride and am the reigning champ in my family, with a score of somewhere around 180,000 (i can't seem to remember, lol).  Which I was quite proud of before I wanted to cry because I thought my arm was gonna fall off.  I would love to see her beat her best score and I really hope she doesn't completely kick my ass!  =)

#36 - Meeting Lots of Characters!

 One of the things that makes me sad about Disneyland is that they do not have nearly the amount of awesome characters and meet & greets that WDW has.  I am super excited to get to meet tons of characters and see characters that are almost never out and about here in California.  I am especially excited at the possibility of meeting Bullseye and Marie!

38 Days To Go...

#38 - Meeting Heather & Kendall

Like I mentioned yesterday, this is my first vacation without any family.  So who am I going with you ask?  I am going with my friends Heather and Kendall!!  Being part of the digi-scrap community has given me the opportunity to meet some really amazing people.  Most I only know online, but I have been lucky enough to meet quite a few of them.  Usually when they come out here to Disneyland =)  Heather, Kendall and I have bonded over our love of scrapping and Disney.  We talk daily, help each other out with problems and they are even both on my Creative Team!  I haven't had the chance yet to meet either of them in person yet and what better a place to do that then Walt Disney World right?  Now heres to hoping that we are all still friends by the end of the trip ;-)  Haha!

#39 - First Vacation on my Own

This is gonna be my first vacation by myself.  My first "big girl" vacation =)  No family, no boyfriend, no backup.  If I mess something up, run out of money or miss my flight, then it is all on me.  I am sure everything will be fine.  Right?  Lol.  Wish me luck!  =)

Let The Countdown Begin!

I have now reached 40 days till my first Disney World trip!  Everyday, from today until I leave, I will be posting 40 different things that I am looking forward to on this trip.  I am super excited and I hope you all will join me on this awesome journey.  So lets get started!!  =)

#40 - Walking down Main Street

Photo by TheMagicInPixels

I might actually cry.  Just sayin.  Nothing is more amazing than walking down Main Street, but when you get to do it on a Main Street you have never been on before and see the amazing castle that you have only ever seen in photos (and dreams, lol)......
It will be amazing.
