    What are the best things to see at Disney with an 8 year old and almost 5 year old boy? And what are the best things for Adults to see for some adult time without the little ones?

    Hi, there!

     Naomi, I'm so excited to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's my pleasure to answer your questions today!

     My little guys are 6 and 8-years old and they just love adventure-filled days in the theme parks. At Magic Kingdom Park, they enjoy classic attractions like Peter Pan's Flight and Pirates of the Caribbean, but they most enjoy visiting the four fan-favorite roller coasters; Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and Space Mountain. At Epcot, my guys can't miss a chance to design and ride a custom vehicle at Test Track, take a dive into The Seas with Nemo & Friends, or sail through Norway on Frozen Ever After. When we visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, a stop in Toy Story Land is a MUST. My boys can't get enough of all the fun in Andy's Backyard! They also love all the out-of-this-world Star Wars experiences. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Kilimanjaro Safaris is a must-do for our whole family. My youngest son loves searching for the elusive Yeti on Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, and my oldest absolutely has to stop by The Boneyard for some play and archaeological digging. To top off magical days, my guys insist on catching the nighttime spectaculars at all of the theme parks! 

     My best suggestion for some adult-only time is to go to Disney Springs. It's home to incredible dining, shopping, and entertainment options! My kids love Disney Springs too, but my husband and I think it's the perfect place for an adults-only night out. 

     Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
