    We are taking out 2 boys (16, 12 & 7) to WDW for Christmas. This will be their first time. Can anyone recommend any shows, events, behind the sceens stuff that is a must see? We will be there 12/25 - 12/31

    Hello Pamela!

    Visiting each park for a full day is the biggest must-do for a first timer and if possible visiting Magic Kingdom 2 or 3 full days.  Nighttime shows are a must for first timers.

    Among my favorite activities: a makeover at The Pirates Leaguedining with Disney Characters; tasting different meals and snacks as I travel around the world at Epcot; walking or riding a boat to enjoy a Signature Restaurant at a nearby resort; taking part of the Jedi Training Academy; learning how to draw Disney Characters at the Magic of Disney Animation; visiting every animal habitat at Animal Kingdom; and experiencing La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil.

    During your visit all parks will be featuring beautiful Christmas decorations and events.  Epcot´s Candlelight Processional is an awesome musical experience that is a must for anyone who enjoys music. 

    Among the many exciting Disney tours I personally love Wild Africa Trek.

    Visit all these links and see what activities are more appropriate for your family.

    Thank you for visiting and hope to hear again from you.
