    We are considering a trip to Disney World in late May. However, we are concerned our thirteen year old son will be bored and not interested in many of the rides. What specific rides an activities are of interest to a thirteen year old boy?

    Hi Matthew! 

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World in May! I was excited when I saw your question because I have visited Walt Disney World with my teenage son, my teenage daughter, and my three teenage nephews and I am thrilled to share tips and tricks that kept them happy and entertained.

    There is so much to do and experience for all ages at all of the Walt Disney World theme parks! My favorite park for teens is Disney's Hollywood Studios. This park has many thrill rides, including Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Slinky Dog Dash, and Tower of Terror.

    Your son will also love Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge! He won't want to miss Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which is located in this section of the park.

    There are also wonderful entertainment options for teens at Hollywood Studios, such as the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular. The food is also great in this park! My favorite is the pizza at PizzeRizzo. Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano is also a great table service option here.

    I also want to share a little tip that I've used in the past. You can visit the Attractions and Entertainment page on the Walt Disney World website and filter by "teen" or "thrill ride" (among many other options) to find more attractions that your son may enjoy. 

    At Disney's Magic Kingdom he will love Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. EPCOT offers TestTrack as a thrilling experience. Disney's Animal Kingdom is also full of exciting attractions, such as DINOSAUR, Kali River Rapids, and Avatar Flight of Passage. He also won't want to miss Pandora – The World of Avatar in Animal Kingdom. 

    You can also bring your son to some of the off-the-beaten-path activities at Walt Disney World, such as playing golf at Fantasia Gardens, bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes, or watching live music at Disney Springs.
