    Our family may be going to Disney World this summer in Florida and I want to know what must see activities would be great for a 10/11 year old girl. We've been to DW before when she was around 5, so I was wondering at this age what she might enjoy.

    Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I have a ten-year-old daughter, and it is a great age to visit Walt Disney World with her. Let me give you some ideas of activities we have done with her recently.

    I have found that there are many active experiences for my daughter and I to have together. On our last trip, my daughter and I took a Horseback Trail Ride at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. This was a fun way to spend some time together outside of a theme park. Another wonderful activity is the Wild Africa Trek. This amazing experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom allows an even closer look at animals on safari, and the opportunity to walk above them on bridges!
    We have also found that our daughter is ready to experience some of the more upscale restaurants at Walt Disney World. On our last trip, she very much enjoyed getting dressed up to have a delicious meal at Narcoossee's.

    Finally, my family still enjoys a day at a theme park taking in attractions and eating popcorn! Now that she is older, my daughter participates in helping us choose our Disney FastPass+ selections before we leave home using our My Disney Experience account. This allows her to be a part of our vacation planning experience, and for us to see which attractions she is interested in.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Lisa! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
