    Hi, this is our first time to WDW! Our boys are 10 and 8. They LOVE water parks, coasters, music and learning about other countries. We are there April 21-28th. Do you have a recommended park plan for us?

    Hi Lia,

    How exciting! Congratulations on your first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to pick up your complimentary "First Visit" button when you check-in to your Resort or at Guest Services at the Theme Parks. Since this is your first visit I suggest picking a few "must-do" attractions at each of the Theme Parks and making FastPass+ reservations for them in advance. There's a lot to see and do at the Walt Disney World Resort so having a plan ahead of time will make your visit less overwhelming. 

    Your boys will love visiting Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and/or Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park. If you have not already, then I recommend purchasing or adding the Water Park Fun & More Option to your Theme Park Tickets. My kids really enjoyed Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool and the Crush "n" Gusher at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, and they love Summit Plummet and the Toboggan Racers at Disney's Blizzard Beach. You can't go wrong with either Water Park for a splashin' good time! 

    My boys love to ride roller coasters too. Some of their favorites are Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith in Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom Park. 

    Epcot is a wonderful Theme Park to visit for learning about different countries. Take a stroll through World Showcase to learn about the culture and cuisine of 11 different countries. Make sure you stop into the Kidcot Fun Spots in each Pavilion to collect a "passport stamp". You'll hear lots of music playing  throughout World Showcase and enjoy the many street performances that take place as well. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

    Enjoy Your Magical Visit,
