    Hello Araceli, You are in for an amazing time for your first trip to Walt Disney World!  There are many things to do that will interest your entire group. 

    In the theme parks, everyone will love the parades, fireworks and stage shows, Pick up a 'times guide' as you enter the parks. This will give you the times and locations of these events. 

    Outside of the theme parks, again you have many choices.  One highlight our family will never forget was a special evening when we booked a Specialty Cruise.   There are a variety of cruises, but the one we took was a 'Fireworks Cruise', which ends with a spectacular view of a Walt Disney World Resort fireworks show (either the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom or Epcot, weather permitting).  This pontoon boat was just right for 10 people and was an amazing way to end our day.  Call 407-WDW-PLAY or (407-939-7529) for more information.  I would recommend you call as soon as possible (up to 180 days in advance) as there is only a small number of boats and they book up quickly). 

    Finally, check out this link where you can search all the Walt Disney World recreation opportunities by location (resorts or other locations) and by type of recreation (there are lots of categories to chose from).  I am sure you will find some things that appeal to all ages.  If you have more questions on particular activities, please write us again and we here at the Mom's Panel will do our best to give you more information.  Have a magical family time together!

Walt Disney World stole my heart when my parents introduced me to the magic the year it opened. I fondly remember my first 'Mickey Mouse in a Glass House' balloon! I still visit with my parents-and now with my husband and our two teens. Learn More About Lynn
