    My son is 8, I don't know what rides he will like? He's never been to a park before so I'm not sure what kids like his age.

    Hi Michelle!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! Your eight-year old son is going to love exploring Disney and experiencing the attractions, dining and fireworks. 

    On the attractions page, you can sort by age, interests, thrill level and height. He will love The Barnstormer at Magic Kingdom; this is my daughter's favorite attraction. 

    If he loves animals, don't miss Kilamanjaro Safaris at Animal Kingdom. Toy Story fans love Toy Story Mania at Hollywood Studios. The Seas with Nemo and Friends is a fun attraction for the entire family at Epcot.

    You can also make an Advanced Dining Reservation for character dining, such as at Chef Mickey's. Your son will love dining with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald.

    Don't miss Happily Ever After fireworks at Magic Kingdom. He will love these firework shows that give a perfect ending to the perfect day.
