    Which 2 of the 3 main theme parks would be best for 11 & 15 year old boys to visit? And, why?

    Hi Sheryl,

    That's such a difficult question to answer, because all four theme parks have something completely different to offer.

    I'm not sure if you've been to Walt Disney World before. If you (or your kids) haven't, then I usually recommend visiting the Magic Kingdom, which was the first of the Walt Disney World parks (and the most popular). Older kids really like Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and Space Mountain.

    For your second park, I'd probably suggest either Epcot or Hollywood Studios. Epcot is great for kids that are interested in culture, because of the World Showcase. You can easily spend at least a day there. There aren't as many rides, but Soarin' and Test Track are lots of fun.

    However, if your kids are into thrill rides and/or Star Wars, Hollywood Studios is a great option. The Rock N Roller Coaster is my favorite attraction of all time and the Tower of Terror is one of the most unique rides you'll experience.

    Remember to make FastPass+ reservations so you can maximize your visit!

    Have a great vacation!
