    8 days to our first WDW trip! My kids (K and 2nd grade) are studying Native Americans in school. Is there anything you recommend they do at WDW to learn more about them? I saw Wilderness Lodge has Native American elements, can they (we) get a tour?

    As a teacher, I applaud you for extending your children's classroom experience to WDW! And the Wilderness Lodge was clearly inspired by Native American culture in its design and decor.  I'd suggest you consider taking one of the Wilderness Lodge tours that are offered throughout the week.  You can get this information at the resort's Guest Services.  If you are at another resort or park, you can ask them to call over to the resort to find the current times of the tours.  You might enjoy having breakfast at the Whispering Canyon Cafe and then taking the tour.  Your children may also enjoy the Hidden Mickey Challenge that can be obtained at Guest Services.  While it won't be as educational as the resort tour, it will allow you to explore the resort and talk about things you see.  Many cast members also are incredibly knowledgeable about the resort and will gladly share information.

    If you are a guest at the Wilderness Lodge, I'd highly suggest asking to become a Flag Family. You get to go to the top of the resort in the morning to raise the flags.  Beautiful views and touching ceremony.  While there, you get the one to one attention of a cast member who can probably provide your children with information as well.
