    I'm planning our daily itinerary for a trip next week with my grandchildren ages 7, 8 and 12. We have 3 Day Park Hopper Plus tickets. Any recommendations for must-do attractions for them? The 7 and 12 year olds are girls and an 8 year old boy.

    Hi Darlene,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! What an awesome grandparent you are. Planning a trip for your grandchildren to the Walt Disney World Resort must be exciting! 

    If your grandchildren are thrill-seekers, here are my suggestions for each park:
    • Magic Kingdom - Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tomorrowland Speedway
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios - Toy Story Mania!, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Star Tours - The Adventures Continue
    • Animal Kingdom - Pandora (Avatar Flight of Passage), Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Forest, Kilimanjaro Safaris
    • Epcot - Soarin', Test Track, Frozen Ever After
    If you have princess fans with you, be sure to review the Disney Princesses at Walt Disney World Resort info. Visit with Rapunzel and Tiana or Cinderella and Elena at Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom and chat with Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus in Epcot.

    If you have any Star Wars fans who want to take a minute to join the rebel forces and save the galaxy, try Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. Recruits must sign-up early so get to the park before it opens to be one of the first in line!

    Darlene, since you have park hopper tickets, consider the Express Transportation Option. With direct bus service, you all could move quickly from park to park.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
