    I'm going to Disney World. Need help making the schedule. We are only going for 3 days in July. I am traveling with my husband and my two boys, one is 6 the other 13. Help?

    Hello, Janery! One of the best things about a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is that there are so many ways for families of all ages to enjoy the parks together. Once you start looking at the many attractions that are available at each of the theme parks, you may find that there are one or two parks that really stand out to you. There are so many great attractions to choose from, so I am happy to provide some of my favorites to help you get started.

    Your two boys, ages 6 and 13, will probably have the most fun with the mild but wild roller coasters and attractions at Magic Kingdom Park. I would strongly suggest that you plan to spend at least a day at this theme park. Some FastPass+ selections that you may want to reserve in advance of your visit are Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, and Haunted Mansion.

    You may also want to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, where your boys can learn all about animation at Disney's Art of Animation. While you're there, take them on an adventure to a galaxy far, far away on Star Tours - The Adventures Continue. You may want to choose Toy Story Midway Mania! as one of your FastPass+ selections, as this super fun midway-style ride is very popular, and the lines can get very long.

    If you have some extra time in your schedule, swing by Epcot to experience all of the fun, futuristic attractions in Future World. Some great FastPass+ options at this park are Test Track and Soarin'. You can also travel around the World Showcase to learn about the culture, foods, merchandise and more from countries all over the world. Make sure you come hungry! There are some fabulous dining options in this section of the park, like Teppan Edo in Japan and La Cantina de San Angel in Mexico.

    I hope that you and your family have a magical vacation, Janery! If I can further assist you with your vacation planning, please do not hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel. Happy planning!
