    Best recommendations for parks for kids ages 9, 10, and 13? Have been to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom when they were young. Epicot too boring? We don't know anything about Hollywood Studios. Fast passes? How do they work? Want 2-day passes for 5.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I bet your kids are super excited to visit the Walt Disney World Resort again!

    If you have not been to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park recently, pack your gear for an expedition to Pandora - The World of Avatar. My girls are 11-years old and their absolute favorite ride now is Avatar Flight of Passage. There is nothing quite like flying on the back of an ikran through the valley of Mo'ara.

    If you are visiting on or after June 30th, be sure to stop by Disney's Hollywood Studios to explore Andy's backyard in Toy Story Land. Our girls are so excited to ride Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers. Of course, if you have any Star Wars fans among you, be sure to ride Star Tours - The Adventures Continue and stop by Star Wars Launch Bay. 

    Our girls have always loved Epcot. After we have ridden Soarin' Around the World, Test Track and Mission: SPACE, they love to do Disney Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure. They actually believe they have secret agent skills.

    Jennifer, Fast Pass+ has revolutionized the way we plan our trips. We always stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel so that we can make our Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance. With Fast Pass+, you can reserve ride times for up to three attractions per day that you have valid theme park admission - doing so saves so much time in line!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
