    I am planning a trip to Disney World in Feb 2009 for me & my son who is 17 and we have never been to Disney, not sure which park is right for us. We have plans to stay in FL for 7 days, 2 of which we want beach time. Which should we go to Magic, Epcot,

    It sounds like you have 5 days available for park touring. With that amount of time, you should be able to visit all four of the Disney theme parks as well as a water park or Downtown Disney.

    There are rides that are appropriate for a 17 year old boy (and his mom) at all the Disney parks. If your son is like most teens, he'll love the thrills of Space Mountain and Splash Mountain in the Magic Kingdom as well as the ride that are great for any age such as Buzz Lightyear, the Jungle Cruise, and the Haunted Mansion. Over at Epcot, you'll both love exploring the World Showcase countries. And in Future World, your son will likely gravitate to Test Track, Mission Space, and Soarin'. The Animal Kingdom has the ever-popular and endlessly frightening Expedition Everest as well as the Kilimanjaro Safari, Kali River Rapids, and Primeval Whirl. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, teens love the Rock 'n Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror. Plus, your son might want to take a peek at the dancers in the High School Musical Pep Rally :-)

    I hope you have a wonderful trip!
