    My son is 9 and we're staying at Pop Century resort. Any ideas about what we should do and see? Keep in mind he's a bit of a chicken and won't ride the really big scary rides like tower or the rock n roll coaster.

    Hi Brianne:

    I'm a parent of two boys, ages 8 and 6, who have been traveling to Disney World since they were infants. I would love to share some of my family's must-dos for our Disney World vacations.

    Among many other things: at the Magic Kingdom, we always ride the Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan's Flight, Mickey's PhilharMagic, and it's a small world. At Epcot, we take in Spaceship Earth, Living with the Land, and tour the countries of World Showcase through Agent P's World Showcase Adventure. Highlights of World Showcase are the Kidcot Fun Stops, which are craft stations where children can draw and color while learning about different cultures as they interact with Cast Members from around the world. Our must-dos at Hollywood Studios include Toy Story Mania and Muppet Vision 3-D. At Animal Kingdom, our family always rides the Kilimanjaro Safari and visit Conservation Station.  None of these attractions should be scary, however, if your child changes his mind about riding while waiting on line, just ask the nearest Cast Member to point your family to the exit.

    If your son is like mine, he may appreciate a trip to The Pirates League or a voyage for the
    Pirates and Pal's Fireworks Voyage

    As you enter the parks, pick up a Times Guide for parades and show schedules.
    My best advice is to relax, follow your son's pace, and enjoy.
