    I am a mother of four who will be going to Disney World Mid to late January 2010. My kids are aged 11, 7, 5, 2 at the time of our trip, what would the best things to do with these age group and my daughter will be turning 8 while we are at Disney.

    Hi, Crystal!  With most vacations, it might be tough to find something to do or someplace to go that would appeal to children in all of the age groups in which your children belong, but as a mom with daughters in ages three to 17, I assure you that Walt Disney World has something for everyone!

    I would suggest planning a good chunk of your time at the Magic Kingdom and at EPCOT.  The Magic Kingdom is truly the centerpiece of Walt Disney World, and there is so much to see and do, between rides, shows, parades, and fireworks.  Even the oldest of your children may still enjoy things like It's a Small World, and the youngest will probably enjoy the ride through Pirates of the Caribbean.  EPCOT has rides geared more to the older children, like Test Track and Mission Space; but my three year old loves the boat ride through The Land and Ellen's Energy Adventure.

    Try to do a character meal if your time and budget allows.  My girls love the Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom, especially because it isn't too girly with the characters from their favorite Pooh stories.

    And make sure to have it noted on your reservation and on any advanced dining reservations that you are celebrating a birthday!  Remember to pick up a birthday button for your daughter, too, so everyone who sees it has a chance to help make her birthday celebration a little more magical!
