    We are bringing our 8 year old grandson to the park in February. Would like to bring him on the Avatar ride and the Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom. Too scary for an 8 year old??

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kari!

    I bet you are getting so excited about your most magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort as your countdown gets shorter. Before you know it you will be enjoying a wild adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and throughout the resort, making memories with your Mouseketeer that you will cherish forever.

    Kari, my son is about your guy’s age and he’s not the bravest when it comes to thrill rides and spooky attractions. But he will tell you himself that DINOSAUR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one of his favorites. This is definitely relative to what your tween enjoys. I’d say the biggest concern with DINOSAUR is that it’s dark and loud. So, if you think he can manage that, he’ll love the exciting prehistoric adventure!

    Pandora –The World of Avatar has quickly become a fan favorite across the board. And for good reason. This new land is as beautiful as it is amazing. The attention to detail and exploration possibilities are endless. And the experience is just beyond belief. The best way I can explain the experience of Avatar Flight of Passage is to compare it to Soarin’ in Epcot, but on steroids! I was able to preview the attraction before my son did. Once I experienced flying on a banshee, I knew he’d love it. And now, it’s his new favorite. It’s an amazing experience that should not be missed! 

    I hope this is helpful information as you continue planning your magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any more questions, be sure to bring them our way. It’s our pleasure to help you plan your vacation to the place where the magic is endless.

    See ya real soon,
