Disney College Program Bucket List (Update)

Sometimes I sit and wonder if time flies as quickly for everyone as much as it does for me. It's been two whole months living down here in Florida and I swear I don't know where that time went. I'm also officially 1/3 through my college program and with that I've been making serious progress on my bucket list.
(1) Get photos with at least 50 different characters
I've got about twenty or so... making progress.
(2) Visit all four parks in one day
(3) Eat at Be Our Guest
(4) Make a magical memory for a guest
I am so lucky to be able to do this every day at work. Last night we had a little princess who lost her ring at dinner, sure enough within five minutes Mickey himself found it, it had bounced off the monorail beam and landed right in his hands! I am so grateful to be a part of making those magical memories for guest and seeing their smiles - it's my favorite part of my job!
(5) Visit the Florida beaches
(6) Try the sodas from around the world at Epcot
I knocked this one off this past week when my boyfriend came down to visit. I liked maybe one out of the ten, so happy I did it but probably will not be doing it again any time soon.
(7) Get Pixie-Dusted at Magic Kingdom
(8) Buy a tiara
(9) Visit the Epcot Food & Wine Festival
(10) Collect 20 pressed pennies
So far I have maybe two...
(11) Eat anything and everything Mickey shaped (waffles, pretzels, etc)
I've had Mickey waffles, Mickey bars, but am waiting to cross this one off untilI get my Mickey pretzel.
(12) Find my way into a princess gown
(13) Do a character dinner
(14) Celebrate Dole Whips!
(15) Learn to draw at Animation Academy
Literally a month after arriving, the Animation Academy closed it's doors. That being said I need something new to add to my bucket list - any recommendations?
(16) Drink around the World at Epcot on my 21st birthday
(17) Try the grey stuff
(18) See a Disney wedding and/or proposal
(19) Write home each week
(20) Fill up a lanyard (or two)
(21) Be serenaded by the Dapper Dans
(22)Watch Wishes on the hub
(23) Release a paper lantern
(24) Go inside Cinderella's Castle
(25) Attend Mickey's Not So Scary Holloween Party
(26) Shoot a blog post in front of the castle
(27) Expand my Disney Alex and Ani collection
FINALLY found the Cinderella charm I've been looking for (only took about six months).
(28) Celebrate Dapper Day
(29) Attend Mickey's Christmas Party
(30) Explore the underground tunnels of Magic Kingdom

Can you think of anything to add to my bucket list? Let me know!
