    Our very 1st family vac this Dec. My DS will have his 13th bday. I booked Chef Mickey's for breakfast, but would like to plan a fun dinner and activity. What could I do to make it a cool day at Magic Kingdom for a new teenager? (also DS 6 & DD 4). th

    Teenagers can be tough to please, Nicole.  I know; I've got two!  But, since you'll be spending your day at Disney, you're already off to a great start.  When I consider what my 13 y/o and 16 y/o would most like to do at Magic Kingdom, I come up with two things: thrill rides and junk food.  You might indulge his sweet tooth with treats like cotton candy or an ice cream sandwich made with freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies (hint hint, Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square).  And then you can set out to conquer Disney's "mountain" rides in honor of your son's monumental birthday (Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad). 

    Come to think of it, perhaps it's a better idea to ride first, and indulge second!  Happy birthday to your son!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
