    things to do for a 16yr old outside of the parks? can you visit and do things at other resorts that we arnt staying at

    Hello Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I have a teen sister and I love traveling with her. We get to do so many fun things together, and exploring options outside the theme parks is a favorite!

    Our first stop is always Disney Springs, and our favorite activities here are creating a special t-shirt at Disney Design-A-Tee, watching the beautiful La Nouba show by Cirque du Soleil, and dining and bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes. We also enjoy visiting Disney’s Boardwalk early in the evening to ride a surrey bike, have dinner at Trattoria al Forno, and then grab an ice cream at Ample Hills Creamery. 

    You are more than welcome to visit other Disney Resort hotels, and enjoy entertainment and dining options. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge we like to admire their beautiful savannah, and explore delicious restaurants such as Sanaa and Boma – Flavors or Africa. At Disney’s Wilderness Lodge we love going for bike rides to explore the beautiful tree-lined paths, and our favorite dining location is the super fun Whispering Canyon Cafe. We also never miss the chance to visit Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to watch Movies Under the Stars while savoring a delicious Dole Whip from Pineapple Lanai.

    I hope this helps you while planning, and that you have a fun-filled visit with your teen. Come back to tell us about your favorite activities.

    Best magical wishes,
