    I am looking into the Disney tours offered. There are many listed and some very pricey. Do you have a recommendation for some of the better tours. I have 3 children 16,14 and 11. They like all rides especially the thrill rides and also like animals.

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, James!

    There are so many wonderful tours offered in Walt Disney World, and you can't really go wrong with any of them. Each one has been honed to a state that you and your children will be so happy that you took the time to do something off the beaten path. They are truly that fantastic!

    While many folks enjoy tours such as Behind the Seeds and Disney's The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour, one of my favorite memories with my then 12-year-old son is when we experienced Wild Africa Trek. Truly, I cannot rave enough about our experience; it was that good!

    Because your kids love animals and are old enough to experience this very unique tour, I think that this may be the way to go. This 3-hour tour takes you over pathways and rope bridges as well as on a special safari, all while guides share fascinating information about the habitat, various species and Disney conservation endeavors throughout the world. You'll never look at Kilimanjaro Safaris again without feeling a wistful smile, remembering the hidden gems you saw and experienced while on this very special tour. I am so glad that we did this, and I know that you'll love it, too.

    Even better, professional photographers will capture many of your favorite moments; you'll get a code to access so many great pictures of your day at the end of your tour. It's really just the perfect trip for animal-loving families with tweens and teens.

    Send more questions about the tour or anything else that comes to mind as you plan your stay, James. We love to help!
