    I will be coming this year with 3 kids with a VARIETY of ages (9,13,15) and Interests. Is there any suggestions as to parks/attractions/etc. We will not need a place to stay, but are looking for the best price we can get to include options.

    Hi, Melinda!

    There is certainly something for guests of all ages, so no worries about your kids' ages.  Your kids are at great ages to enjoy all 4 theme parks and all the attractions, so you can choose which ones interest them the most, or go for it and plan on visiting all 4!

    I would suggest setting aside 4 full days for parks.  Get Base Magic Your Way tickets which will allow you to visit one theme park per day.  If you add on the Park Hopper  or Water Parks and More option, your ticket price will increase.  (The good news is your 9 year old still qualifies for a child ticket, so you will save a few dollars on that one!)  For each park you visit, let each child pick one attraction they definitely want to do.  This way every person has a special choice and nobody feels left out.  Plan ahead for your restaurants so there is no fighting on where to eat.  Make dining reservations ahead of time if you want sit down meals or buffets. 

    To save a few dollars on tickets, check ahead of time with your local AAA office or the website  I have used both of these providers for tickets with great success.

    As you start to plan out your days, keep in touch and I will be happy to give dining suggestions or itineraries.  Good luck planning your magical vacation!
