    There seems to be a lot of activities for little girls, but what about the little boys. My son will be 4 years and I want to make this trip a blast for him.

    Hi Cynthia!  I can assure you that there are plenty of activities to appeal to the little Prince in your family!  
    First, I would suggest booking an appointment at The Pirate's League at the Magic Kingdom. He can be transformed into one of several Pirate looks, complete with costume if you wish, and there is a fun Parade of Pirate's that he can participate in later on that day.  Little boys love this activity, and reservations are necessary. Another option for your little guy would be to head on over to Disney's Hollywood Studios and sign up for the Star Wars:  Jedi Training Academy where Junior Jedi Knights can learn to use the Force.  Check the link for more details and be sure to sign up first thing in the morning due to the popularity!

    Finally, you could sign him up for a Pirate Adventure Cruise.  There are 4 options/locations to choose from for kids 4 -12.  They are "kids-only" though, so if you are uncomfortable with him heading off solo at his age, the other option could be to book a Pirates  & Pals Fireworks Voyage for the whole family. Captain Hook,  Mr. Smee, snacks, drinks, and a cruise around the Seven Seas Lagoon with a great view of the Wishes Fireworks make this a must-do activity for pirates or princesses of any age.

    I'm limited by space, but if you'd like dining recommendations geared towards your little guy, just write me back and I'd be happy to help.
