    I had a thought about bringing my 2 kids with a friend each on a future trip, when they will be 15. It would be a quick 3-day trip. Any ideas for teens bringing friends and for making the most of a short trip? Their friends have never been to WDW.

    Hi, LeeAnn!  Four teenagers in one trip?  You can't see me, but I am bowing down in awe of you!  I've done two at one time, and needed as asprin and a nap by noon each day!

    I'd let the kids do a lot of the planning.  Compile a list of things they want to do, and come up with a game plan that allows you to do all of those things.  You may want to consider park hopper passes so you can go between multiple parks on the same day to help make the most of the short time you have.

    If budget allows, let each of your children pick a special dining experience they'd like to have.  The rest of the time, I'd probably just eat counter service, so the kids can get right back to the fun stuff!

    With kids this age, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, you might want to stay up late for the evening extra magic hours.  It can be fun to stay up late and hit some of your favorite attractions.

    If you do find yourself with an early day, spend the evening in the pool of your resort, and then check out the movies on the beach at some of the resorts.

    Have an awesome time, LeeAnn!
