    Hi, My family and I will be visiting Disney for the fourth time with our 4 and 7 year olds. Can you share any of your must do list that is out of the ordinary? We have done BBB, Pirates League, Character Dining, etc.

    Hi Ty,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. One of the most fun aspects of visiting Walt Disney World over and over is that you do get to try some of the more "off-the-beaten-path" experiences at Walt Disney World. There are so many of them! It sounds like you have already experienced some great ones, including the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and The Pirates League. Let me offer a couple more suggestions.

    One of my favorite places to explore at Walt Disney World is Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. There are so many fantastic activities, dining options, and recreation offerings there! At this resort, I suggest that you check out Mickey's Backyard BBQ. This backyard-style picnic offers not only scrumptious food, but also unique entertainment. When my family attended, there was a band, a cowboy doing rope tricks, and opportunities to dance with characters. It is truly a unique and jovial event! At the nearby Tri-Circle-D Ranch, your little ones may enjoy a pony ride. My daughter loved these when she was younger, and still talks about how she got to ride a pony named Nemo!

    Another fun activity for your children might be a Pirate Adventure Cruise. These are available for guests 4 to 12 years old and depart from various resorts. Children become pirates and search for treasure on these interactive two-hour cruises.

    I hope that these thoughts give you some ideas for unique activities at Walt Disney World, Ty! Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
