    I will bring my boy/girl twins to DW for their 5th b-day. My daughter loves the princesses and my son loves Cars characters. Can you recommend a 3 day itinerary that balances their gender specific preferences? They both love the main characters. Thanks!

    Hi, Meghan!  The good thing about Walt Disney World is that you'll find stuff that not only is gender specific, but also appropriate for everyone!

    Do you know which theme parks you'll be visiting?  Are you going to be parking hopping?  Are you going to want to do some character dining experiences?

    I'd definitely do the Magic Kingdom one day.  You'll find that really everything here has gender neutral appeal - even things like Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.  It sounds more like a boy thing, but it's something my daughters would never miss.  I like to be there as early as possible.  You may want to try to get a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table to do a meal with the princesses, or schedule a princess makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  While she's getting all princess-ified, your son might be over at the Pirates League, where they'll do a makeover on him that will transform him into a pirate!

    Another must do for my family is Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Disney Junior Live is a stage show that features some of the kids' favorite Disney Junior characters.  You'll find friends from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Handy Manny, among others.  From there, you could do something a little more princessy and see the Voyage of the Little Mermaid, then switch it up later and see the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.  

    Day three with my kids would be Disney's Animal Kingdom.  The animals hold their attention - especially the Kilimanjaro Safari attraction, and they also love It's Tough to Be a Bug and the TriceraTop Spin.  Everything here is very gender neutral, and I think many children this age could spend all day exploring the animals!

    I can help you with more specifics if you want to send me some more information!
