    I'd love to take my boys (7,7) on a different type of nature experience while in Florida next year, perhaps an airboat ride or similar. Is this something we can do through WDW or will we have to look elsewhere for this type of experience? Thanks!

    Hello again Anna and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    Most Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort don't appreciate how close to nature they are because Florida is teeming with diverse flora and fauna everywhere you care to look!  When they were younger my own children used to love seeing how many little lizards they could count scurrying around in the undergrowth nearby; as you'll appreciate that's not an everyday sight for us at home in Cornwall! 
    Here just for you is a list of some suggested activities for your own 2 young adventurers -
    Fishing Presented by Take Me Fishing: enjoy either a guided fishing excursion afloat or simply hire a rod and line and do some dockside fishing. 
    - Become a Wilderness Explorer at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park just like the kids in this cute Disney Parks Blog video. 
    - Visit the Tri-Circle-D Ranch for some cowboy style adventure. 
    - Rent a Canoe or similar watercraft and paddle the Disney waterways. 
    - Explore Behind The Seeds at The Land Pavillon in Epcot. 
    I'm sure whatever is finally decided upon you'll enjoy a wild time visiting Walt Disney World Resort! 
    Have a great Disney day.
