    Planning a vacation for our family of 4. We have 2 boys ages 9 and 11 years old. Recommendations for what to do...most popular for active boys. and places to stay for our family worth a memorable visit. interests: dining/Food, sports, golf, animals

    Hi Justina, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    If your boys love animals, I would definitely recommend staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge for your upcoming vacation. It’s the perfect place for animal lovers and your active boys will absolutely love the pools and other activities and amenities (including dining experiences) that are offered at the Lodge. If you can afford the splurge, a Savanna View would make your stay even more magical. 

    Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park would be another great experience for your active family.  From the gigantic wave pool, to swimming with the sharks at Shark Reef or enjoying the Crush 'N' Gusher, you’re sure to have a great time. Your family might also really enjoy the Typhoon Lagoon Surfing Programs too! 

    Something that would be really helpful for you and your family would be a touring plan for the Theme Parks. My favourite website for designing a touring plan is www.touringplans.com. It’s made by the people who write the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World and I really find it to be a fantastic resource for planning my vacations, one that is well worth the price of a subscription. 

    Please consult the Sports and Recreation page for more information about the various activities, including golf, that are available to your family during your upcoming vacation. 

    I hope I’ve answered some of your questions. Please don’t hesitate to come back and visit us if you have any other questions for your upcoming visit.

    Have a Magical Day!
