    i need help if anyone has any suggestions we are making our first disney trip next summer. we are taking our ten yr old son to disney world. Rides that are good, dining expereineces, should we stay at disney or not, and any other helpful tips ?

    There are so many magical experiences waiting for you and your family at Walt Disney World. I would suggest that you begin at the Magic Kingdom. Head on over to Main Street U.S.A. Begin at City Hall where a friendly cast member will give you your very own personalized 1st Time Visit celebration pin. From there head across the street for a visit with the big cheese himself, Mickey Mouse, at the Town Square Theater. Here you can pose for a picture, get an autograph and give the him a high five. From there head on over to Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Rail Road and Pirates of the Caribbean to satisfy your quench for adventure. From there try out the classic fun that is the Jungle Cruise. I think he might also really love exploring Tom Sawyer Island on the Rivers of America. I played there with my older brother, running, exploring and having a great time. Inspired by the famous novels of Mark Twain, this lushly landscaped outdoor playground is where children of all ages can scamper and climb in the rugged terrain while parents relax in a rustic atmosphere. At night make a point of watching Wishes Nighttime Fireworks. They are really a wonderful way to finish a wonderful trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. I hope this assists you and I will see you at the parks.

As a Los Angeles native I basically grew up at Disneyland. It has always been so easy to take my family on the short drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Watching my daughters make magical memories reminds me why I keep coming back. Learn More About Ari
