    We are planning a trip for later this year. Having never been to WDW before, we are wondering what is going to be the most fun for our 5 and 7 year old boys? We just want to make it the best experience possible and not miss anything fun.

    Hi, Sara!  What a truly magical age your boys are to have their first trip to Disney World!  I have six nephews, and if your little guys are anything like my nephews, the Magic Kingdom is going to be their favorite place.  The boys love riding on Buzz Lightyear - especially since they know they can beat Aunt Anna with their eyes closed!  They also really enjoy Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor comedy show.  With Pirates of the Caribbean and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad rounding out the list of ride favorites, there is plenty to keep you busy there.  Check out Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial, too!

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, the brand new Toy Story Mania ride is another must see.  Make sure to go first thing in the morning to grab your fast passes, as the ride is so popular right now! 

    We took my nephew Danny to see the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue dinner show when he was 5, and now he's is 13 and still talks about how much fun he had!  If your time and budget allows, that might be something to add to your itinerary.

    Have a wonderful time, take lots of pictures, and let us know how this wonderful trip goes!
