    What Disney World resort would an 11 year old boy enjoy the most? starting to plan a Jan 2017 trip to Disney and looking at some options. Thanks

    Hi Tina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for sending us your question.

    My biggest tip for parents of older kids is to involve them in planning the trip. Have him browse through the various Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to determine what might appeal to him. I would recommend choosing your resort hotel based on his particular interests and your budgetary constraints.

    If your son loves animals you can't go wrong with Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. For nature lovers The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort would be absolutely perfect! If he likes to spend a lot of time in the pool, I would suggest either Disney's Yacht Club Resort or Disney's Art of Animation Resort. They have some of the best themed pools on-property.

    Wishing you an unforgettable vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!
