    Anything you would recommend as a must do/see for an 11yr old boy?

    Hey Stephanie!

    Your Walt Disney World trip will be a-MAY-zing! We love visiting in May because of the low crowds and great weather. My 11 year old son is a Disney Parks fanatic. He loves to help me plan our vacations. Here are the “musts” at each park for him:

    Magic Kingdom
    *Big Thunder Mountain Railroad- the “wildest ride in the wilderness”
    *Splash Mountain to sing Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah
    *Space Mountain to blast off into the dark
    *Peter Pan’s Flight- he enjoys the classic movie ride
    *The Haunted Mansion and the spooky silliness inside
    *Pinocchio’s Village Haus where the best flatbread pizza in the world is served
    •Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin because an 11 year old is the best at defeating Zurg

    •Test Track- who doesn’t want to design and race their own car?
    *Soarin’- where hand gliding over the Golden Gate Bridge is jaw dropping
    •Mission Space- the place to pilot a spaceship to Mars
    •Eat a Cronut at the Refeshment Port and Caramel popcorn from Karamell-Kuche

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    •Toy Story Mania- he can practice his “shootin’” skills
    •Jedi Training Academy- he must battle Lord Vader to become a Jedi
    •Muppet Vision 3-D- a great show in a comfortable theater
    •Star Tours simulates a Star Wars Universe journey. He could be the Rebel Spy!
    Star Wars Weekends- Star Wars everywhere!

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom
    •Kali River Rapids get drenched as your raft races through the jungle 
    •Kilimanjaro Safari- where African wildlife is right out your vehicle window. Get your camera ready!
    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
