Our 2012 Disney World Bucket List: Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios

Last week I shared with you why I don’t do resolutions in the New Year and my first Disney World bucket list for 2012, The Magic Kingdom. Today I’m going to share with you the long list of items we haven’t managed to while visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I hope that we will actually be able to cross some off in the coming year.

Hollywood Studios

Toy Story Mania! – If for some reason a family of five hands over there coveted fast passes to us because some freak emergency has caused them to actually leave the park before using them, then we will try this out. If not, you can read all about the insanity of the ride and why I will not even bother.

Fantasmic!– I don’t do shows like this usually because I despise the crowds after the fact, as I’ve shared before, but we will see.

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Lights, Motors, Action!® Extreme Stunt Show® - I’m not entirely sure why we have never made an attempt to watch this as I’m sure my kids would actually really like it. Oh yeah, that’s right, my kids are obsessed with going on Tower of Terror, that’s right.

Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun!– Again, parades equal crowds, but I’m sure the kids would adore this one if would actually find a seat to watch it one day.

The American Idol Experience– I actually have NO interest in this, but think my 6 year old daughter would love it, so it here it is, ready to be checked off.

Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular!– This one the kids have NO interest in but I would really like to see. I’ve always been a big Indy Fan.

The Great Movie Ride – If we can ever sneak away for an adult only visit to Disney this one will get crossed off, but I just can’t seem to justify it with the kids as we would have to let the little one sit out and take turns.

Studio Backlot Tour – I have mixed emotions on this attraction as I’ve heard it is a pain in the butt for those with strollers (which we always have) thus why I’ve always avoided it. In fact, I generally avoid that whole area of the park.

Sounds Dangerous with Drew Carey – I’ve never been a big Drew Carey fan, but if we could make it without the kids, I guess we could try to cross it off the list of To-Do’s.

Character Greetings – We’ve seen them all while in the park, but haven’t attempted the greeting before.

  • Jake from Jake and the Never Land Pirates
  • Cars stars, Lightning McQueen and Mater
  • Mr. and Mrs. Incredible
  • Buzz, Woody, Jesse from the Disney·Pixar Toy Story movies
  • Mike and Sully from Monsters, Inc.
  • Winnie the Pooh from his new movie, Disney's Winnie the Pooh
  • Stars of their self-titled Disney Channel show, Phineas and Ferb

Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy– I got to watch this for the first time on our last visit and the hubby and big kids caught the tail end of it and looked really intrigued. So now, I MUST get them signed up one time to try it out.

Pizza Planet - My Toy Story loving crew insist that we MUST eat at Pizza Planet next time we visit. They were very disappointed that our last visit was early in the morning thwarting their plans.

The Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant

The Hollywood Brown Derby– I would love the opportunity to dine here kid free one night, hint hint…somebody!

I love to browse some shops at Disney when I can get away from the kids who want to buy EVERYTHING; here a few I would like to make my way into in 2012 while visiting Hollywood Studios.

  • Classic Car Memorabilia (I LOVE classic cars)
  • Once Upon a Time
  • The Writer's Stop

Finally, I’m still pouting over the fact that we missed this year so it is my final 2012 Disney World bucket list for Hollywood Studios must do, The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.
