    My son will be 15 when we get to go to Disney - are there things for someone that age to do? We have never been to Disney before.

    Hi there, Marian! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Blog!

    I am so very exciting to help you plan your very first Walt Disney World vacation! First, though, we’ll need to disprove some myths. Contrary to some people’s beliefs, Walt Disney World Resort is absolutely a place for Guests of all ages! There are events and attractions targeted at all types of people with varying areas of interest. This is one of the main reasons I love visiting with my family. It is fairly easy to find something that everyone will like within a single theme park! 

    There is actually an entire page devoted to planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with teens and tweens! You may want to look over this page in order to see which attractions would appeal to your son directly. However, I may have a couple recommendations for you to consider, too! First, be sure to check out some of the more thrilling attractions such as Rock’n’Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom, and Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. All of these attractions are sure to get him excited! You may also want to pick out a few teen-friendly snacks he can enjoy during your family vacation. My personal favorite snacking activities include “eating around the world” at the World Showcase at Epcot and seeing how many cupcakes I can eat at each theme park I visit! 

    Have fun continuing to plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
