The Ultimate Disney Wish List
We’ve mentioned before that we believe John Lassiter and the wonderful folks at Disney must have their Mickey ears tuned in all over the world. It seems like they hear everything! And, let’s face it, we love pretty much everything Disney’s park experiences have to offer. However, there are a few things (five, actually) still on our Disney wish list. So, Imagineers, if you’re reading this, please take note!
Okay, this is probably the least realistic of our wishes. After all, there is a Wizarding World of Harry Potter park at Universal Studios. Now, I’ve never personally been to this park, but I have it on good authority from Michelle that it’s not nearly as magical as it would’ve been if Disney had built it. I mean, can you imagine the dragons?! It would’ve been so epic. How much cooler would DisneyWorld be if Hogwarts and Diagon Alley were just a hop, skip, and jump away from Fantasyland or EPCOT?
Jedi Academy…for “Grown Ups”
Seriously, whose idea was it to put an age limit on Jedi training? We would be all over that class, learning how to use The Force. Star Wars started up in the 80s after all so doesn’t it make sense that one or two of the older generations get to have a hands-on experience with one of the biggest movie franchises in history? We think so!
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique…for “Grown Ups”
One or more of us may still be harboring a desire to be a Disney princess (it’s totally not me…that’s a lie). So the idea that I could watch my four year old cousin run about while getting pampered and turned into Queen Elsa, but not be able to join her, has me more than a little miffed. At the very least, the adults should get an in-park spa so moms can get a mani-pedi while the little ones sing “Let It Go” at the top of their lungs. I’m just sayin’…
Marvel Universe Park
There may be some who are still on the fence about Marvel merging with Disney, but you won’t find any naysayers on this blog! The potential for a Marvel park on Disney property is endless. I’m talking tours of S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters, hotel accommodations in Stark Tower, and meet and greets with Captain America and the other Avengers. A Shawarma restaurant! I’d be tempted to never leave, I’m not going to lie.
A Castle Hotel Experience
Yes, it is technically possible to stay in Cinderella’s castle. One night at a time. If you’re a celebrity. Or if you win a contest. Disney doesn’t allow reservations for this room, it’s only available to a lucky few. But who doesn’t want the royal treatment from time to time? A castle hotel would definitely be a large gem in the crown that is Disney. Personally, I think Elsa’s and Anna’s home seems like it has the most space, and what better way to incorporate one of the newer Disney stories into the parks?
So that’s our list! Do you have a Disney wish? Let us know in the comments!
