    This is our first time visiting Disney, from Canada. All inclusive from Costco -15 Dec and be staying till 20 Dec. my son is 13 years old . Not sure what all we can do and where to start from in Disney. It’s confuting when u check so many options online

    Hello, Balraj! You are incredibly close to beginning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I hope you’ve got your “countdown to Disney” started! I have three teenage sons – 18, 18, and 14. Your 13-year-old is going to have a great time during his vacation!

    There are four Disney Parks at the Walt Disney World Resort! I recommend visiting all four! There will be so much that your son will enjoy at each park! I’ll provide a quick list of the attractions my sons enjoy most at each park. All the attractions that I recommend are included with your park admission for each park!

    At Magic Kingdom Park, be sure to visit Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Railroad Mountain, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Mickey’s PhiharMagic, and TRON Lightcylce / Run!

    Heading over to EPCOT, enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (amazing!), Mission: SPACE, Test Track, Journey of Water Inspired by Moana, and Soarin’ Around the World!

    When spending your day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, be sure to check out the Indiana Jones: Epic Stunt Spectacular, Star Tours – The Adventures Continues, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, Slinky Dog Dash, and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Also, the nighttime spectacular, Fantasmic!, is an amazing show!

    At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, family favorites include Avatar Flight of Passage, Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Festival of the Lion King!

    Another favorite for my teenagers is the water parks! Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is scheduled to be open during your visit! This is such a fun place to visit! Be sure to encourage your son to take the plunge on Summit Plummet! This is such a thrilling experience! I had to build up my youngest son’s courage, but he was so glad he did it! In fact, he insisted on doing it again...and again!

    Also, be sure to let your son enjoy some time at the resort hotel! The resort hotels have great amenities, including the pools! My sons enjoy time by the pool for relaxing and swimming! It also makes for a great "parent break" too!

    I hope you have a magical visit!

    Happy Planning!
