    We will be in the Magic Kingdom with ‘tweens for two days. Where can we find suggested itineraries that do not involve too much walking between rides?

    Hi there, Shauneen! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Oh my candy canes, your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort starts in only two days! A Disney holiday is the best kind of holiday, and I just know your family will have a magical time.

    Shauneen, aren't these 'tween years amazing? My son is 11, and it's been such a great age. He's old enough to do lots of things on his own, but still young enough to be fully immersed in the wonder of it all. One way to help keep kids engaged and interested at this age is to let them help plan your trip. They'll love feeling like they're really involved, and they'll have some ownership of what you plan to do. And Disney recently introduced a brand new tool that I think your family will love. It's called Disney Genie, and it can help you plan your whole Disney day!

    Disney Genie is part of the My Disney Experience mobile app on your phone, so your first step will be to make sure you have the app. When you log in and start exploring the app, you'll see a purple-ish box near the top inviting you to "Get Started" with Disney Genie. Click there, and then on "Start Now" to begin building your practically perfect day. You'll select the date you'd like to plan, then the members of your party. Then, Genie will ask you some questions about things you like to do. Which attractions do you want to see? Where would you like to eat? How about entertainment? Once you've told Disney Genie what your interests are, you'll get a custom itinerary that not only takes into account all the things you want to do, but also minimizes the walking distance covered! Now, that's phenomenal cosmic power!

    Disney Genie's planning feature is free, but you can take your vacation to the next level by purchasing Disney Genie+ for your trip. Upgrading to Disney Genie+ gives you the option to skip the standby lines by accessing the Lightning Lane entrances at most attractions throughout the theme parks. It's just one more way to help you have ALL the fun on your vacation!

    I hope this helps your family plan a jolly holiday at the Walt Disney World Resort, Shauneen! Thank you so much for stopping by, and please come see us again real soon! 

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
