I love the idea of having a fall bucket list. Especially in 2020, when we really need things to look forward to – why not plan a few activities with your close friends or family members? As a Disney lover of course i like to put a magical twist on everything, so I came up with the Disney fall bucket list. These are all activities you can do at home (you don’t need to be in the theme parks) that shouldn’t be too difficult.
If you’d like to really get into the spirit of things I made this fun Disney fall bucket list printable that’s available over on Etsy. I put together some fun designs with checkboxes so you can print it out and check things off as you go! Plus as a reader of this blog you can now get 20% off with the code FALL2020!
Now on to the Disney fall bucket list!

Tell ghost stories from the Haunted Mansion
Share the stories of the Haunted Mansion ghosts with your friends or family – or make up your own ghost stories inspired by the attraction!
Curl up with a good Disney book
Fall always feels like a cozy season. The perfect time to curl up with a good book and a blanket. Why not make it a Disney book? Whether you read a twisted tale, a biography of Walt, or a villain backstory, there’s lots of good book options.
Have a fun game night with a perfectly themed Disney board game – Villainous, featuring the Disney villains! There are a number of expansion packs if you want to keep the fun going too.
Make fall inspired rice krispie treats
Rice krispie treats are always a popular snack at Disney. Make them yourself at home and consider decorating them like Mickey pumpkins!
Paint a Disney pumpkin
If carving isn’t really your thing, consider painting a Disney pumpkin instead! I paint mine onto fake pumpkins so I can display them every year.
