Note to Self: Disney World To Do List
You may have read my Disneyland To Do List and my WDW bucket list. Here is the running list I have going for things that are probably a little more achievable than some of the things on my bucket list. I try to cross things off the list with each trip. And yes, there will be some overlap between this and my bucket list, but I think of this as a more realistic "To Do" list than a "Bucket" list. And yes, a lot of them revolve around food. :) Enjoy!
