    hi i am planning on visiting Walt Disney world on march 15 - 22 with my two teenage boys i was just wondering about the disney magical express is it available only for flights? also any specific suggestions for what we should ? we are all first timers!

    Disney's Magical express is a free bus service that takes guests between Orlando International Airport and the WDW resort hotels, so yes, it is only available for guests using the airport. However, there is ample other free transportation at WDW that any guest may use. There are buses, boats, and of course the monorail system that you can use to get from the hotels to the theme parks and between the theme parks. If you click HERE, you'll find a video called "Transportation" that shows what many of these options look like.

    As far as activities during your trip, if your sons are like most teenage boys, they'll be itching to do the thrill rides at the parks. The roller coasters are scattered around the parks, not all in one place, so to get to them all you're going to want to hit all four of the theme parks. Here are some rides that are likely to be highlights for them:

    Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Buzz Lightyear
    Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest, Primeval Whirl, Kali River Rapids, Kilimanjaro Safari
    Epcot: Test Track, Mission Space, Soarin'
    Disney's Hollywood Studios: Tower of Terror, Rock n' Roller Coaster, Star Tours, Lights Motors Action Stunt Show

    Additionally, the water parks (Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach) are great fun for teens. There are some AWESOME water slides there that send you so fast you float off the slide a bit.

    DisneyQuest, the indoor interactive arcade is also big with boys. You have the opportunity here to design your own roller coaster and then "ride" it in a simulation. Cool technology!

    Have a blast on your first trip!
