My Five Dream Disney Vacations

Dream vacations, eh?  I could probably come up with quite a list of places that I’d love to visit.


But as you know I’m a bit of a Disney fan, and there are a couple of Disney locations I haven’t visited, so this list is going to be about those.

Assume of course we’d have plenty of time to explore the surrounding areas and non-Disney attractions.  I mean, I’m not a total heathen; I’d love to spend some time seeing the history of the world.

Dream Disney Vacations

  1. Disneyland Paris.  My husband was overseas last year and made a one day trip to Paris.  Because I made him.  I was dying to get a report from Disneyland Paris, and since I don’t even have a passport right now (I know, I know!), he got the nod.  He’s not the Disney fan that I am, but he was up for the task.  He said it wasn’t anywhere as nice as the American parks, hated the smokers (sorry, Europe!), but loved Space Mountain.  He says I don’t need to visit, but you know, I disagree.  runDisney Paris 2017— I’m still wishing on that star!
  2. Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea. I’ve always been fascinated with Japan, ever since I was a little girl.  Going there would be on ANY dream vacation list, but you know, if there’s a Disney park thrown into the mix, I’m all over that action.
  3. Shanghai Disney Resort.  This is the newest park and friends that have gone said it’s spectacular.  I saw a bit of information about it at D23 last summer.

    I am NOT as jazzed about this one. I’ve heard it’s out in the middle of nowhere, and it takes an hour via a scary bus ride (roads not the best) just to get from nearest city to the park. But the biggest draw for me- besides being Disney? The TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction looks crazy cool.
  4. Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.  I need to see this version of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.  Since I adore the #tinycastle in my home park of Disneyland, I know it would feel like home- sorta.  Or I might react like this.
  5. Aulani Resort.  My favorite resort at Walt Disney World is the Polynesian Village Resort.  When I got to stay there (once!) I likened it to a cheaper version of a Disney-Hawaiian vacation.  It was the whole package for me: Disney plus Hawaii. Goals achieved. Or so I thought.

    Sniff. The old lobby sure was special!

    Disney had to plus things, as they do, and create a Disney-Hawaiian vacation. Though not quite as cheap.  Ahem. But it’s my #1 dream to visit and spend a week there. If you have been, go ahead and regale me with tales of perfection. I can take it. Oh- and of course, if your dream is to go there too: I can help with that! #TravelAgent

  1. Ya know how the travel channel is always playing those prograams about WDW and Disney cruise lines? Well, i’d love for them to do a program on the foreign Disney parks. I have no desire to visit them but I would love to watch someone else explore them right from the comfort of my couch. Do you think the travel channel would send Samantha Brown?..haha
    My sister went to Disney Paris a few years ago and said it wasn’t all that!

  2. These do seem like they’d be perfect for a Disney fanatic such as yourself! I hope you make it to the Disney Hawaiian trip you are dreaming of. I live close to Disneyland and it’s the only one I’ve ever been to.

  3. I’ve only been to Disneyland CA and Disney World. I didn’t know they are building a new one in Shanghai. So many Disney parks! I didn’t even know they had a resort in Hawaii. That’s cool!

  4. I haven’t been to any fancy Disney places. The Polynesian resort looks fantastic.

  5. Disney in Hawaii – I’m totally game for that! I’ve only done Disney World thus far and loved every minute of it.

  6. Disney topped my list, too! I’m a sucker for Disney. It’s amazing!!

  7. I love your spin on the linkup challenge! I’ve never been to Disney anywhere, but these all sound great! Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I went to Disneyland Paris for the half in September and i think it’s worth a trip if you’re going to spend time in other locations in France/Europe! I wouldn’t go JUST for Disneyland Paris though. It was fun, pretty, and I think it’s just going to get better as they improve things especially with the 25th anniversary coming up. Though I did hate the smokers too. I was glad to get home and feel like I could breathe again.
