    Have 3 boys -13,7,3 - best parks to visit with them? And How much spending $ per child reccommended

    Hi, Maria!  You really can't go wrong with any of the Walt Disney World theme parks with kids of this age, but I'd probably say the Magic Kingdom is a must do, and after that, either Disney's Hollywood Studios or EPCOT.  You'll find attractions at all three parks that are good for children of any age, and each park has some things geared towards bigger kids, so your oldest son might be able to enjoy something like Tower of Terror or Mission: Space.  

    As for spending money, I really tend to limit my children.  If I'm traveling by plane, I don't have room to lug a bunch of stuff back with me, and if we're driving, I don't want to have a car full of toys and stuff to bring home.  I usually buy them a t-shirt (in the range of $25), and then let them have another $25 for the trip.  That lets them choose one other nice souvenir or a couple of smaller ones.  If we're there longer, they might get a little extra, and I usually pay for things like snacks and drinks, so you may have to adjust your amount based on what they will use their spending money for and how long you'll be there.

    I hope your trip is magical!
