    I have never been to Disney World, or Florida, and I am going with my 2 boys (Josh is 8) and (Jack is 6), my friend Carole Micheli told me to get in touch with you. What should I make sure we see and how should I plan our 7 days?

    Hi Michelle!

    So nice of Carole to send you my way!

    With your boys' ages, I'd suggest you'll want to be sure to visit all 4 parks once each in your first 4 or 5 days. After that, consider a Disney Water Park such as Typhoon Lagoon if you have the Water Parks Fun and More option on your tickets, or you can pay a daily admittance there if you choose. You'll likely want to return for a "Day 2" at both Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios for starters.

    If you're staying on site and using a Dining Plan (feel free to message me again with info about where you're staying, what ticket type you've purchased and if you're using a Dining Plan so I can give you some better, more detailed info before you leave!) there are some great Character Dining opportunities you'll want to reserve in advance for extra fun.

    As far as must-do attractions for boys, there are MANY! If your boys are of the Swashbuckling type, a visit to The Pirate's League for a pirate makeover is great fun and very reasonably priced. Another great Pirate activity that would be great for one of your last few days is a Pirate Adventure Cruise during which your boys would go off for about 2 1/2 hours, supervised on a smaller watercraft while YOU enjoy a quiet, lovely breakfast or brunch at a nearby location.

    Magic Kingdom is FULL of must-do attractions, so I won't try to list them all.
    Hollywood Studios has great, boys' must-do's. At the very top of the list if you have Star Wars fans would be The Jedi Training Academy. It's super-popular - so be there at park opening and head straight to sign-ups first thing at Drew Carey's Sounds Dangerous. Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt show is also popular with the boys as well as Indiana Jones and the big thrills - Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror.

    I'm out of space already! :(
    I hope you'll message me again Michelle so I can share more with you!
