    We will be arriving the first week in August , it will be my son and his best friend both age 11, first time here. My question is what are the best things to do with them and also is the Pirate league still available? I don't want to overwhelm them.

    Howdy Michelle!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I am super excited about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with your two Mouseketeers!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    Your visit to Neverland sounds like a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious good time!  Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with friends and family for the first time is an experience you will never forget!  You will find “Magic Around Every Corner” throughout your trip!  There are several attractions at each of the theme parks that will have your Mouseketeers ready to experience over and over!  I have placed a link in the above text to scan through all the attractions perfect for your adventurers!  Since you will be visiting in August, I recommend spending some time at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park!  This water park is perfect for your party!  This water park is packed with tons of frosty fun between racing down the Toboggan Racers and plunging down the Runoff Rapids; this water park is fantastic!  Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is a great way to cool off and have a Splash-tastic time during your visit!

    Your vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is “Just Around the Riverbend!”  To stay informed of everything to do and see during your visit, check out the Disney Parks Blog.  The Disney Parks Blog will be the first place to announce when The Pirates League returns!  Also, make sure to pick up your “First Time” button for your Mouseketeers to wear so that everyone can celebrate along with your party!  You can get your buttons at Guest Services at the entrance of each theme park or your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel!

    As you continue to plan your unforgettable vacation, if you have any more questions, please come back to planDisney!  We are always here to help you with all your planning questions, Michelle!

    See Ya Real Soon,
