    This will be our 2nd time to Disney. Our Kids are now 12 & 14; what parks to you Recommend for their ages. We thought About a water park but it is closed. We Will only be there for 3 days so want to Make the most of it. Thanks

    Hello Kimberly,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am glad to hear you are returning for another visit.

    Since you are staying for 3 days, the best way to make the most of your visit is to add the Park Hopper option to your tickets. This way, if you have a 3-day ticket you will have admission to all theme parks as many times as you like for all 3 days of your visit. For example, you can start your day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and finish it with dinner at Epcot.

    In addition, all 4 theme parks have plenty of fun attractions for tweens and teens. My sister is 12-years old, and she adores Rock ’n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Her favorite attraction at Epcot is Soarin’, and she never misses Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and Space Mountain and Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom Park. Since every person is different and you know your children better than anyone else, my suggestion is to look at the descriptions of the attractions to decide as a group which ones they would like to experience. This will be very helpful when you start making FastPass+ selections.

    Kimberly, I hope you have a wonderful vacation! Please come back with more questions.

    Have a magical day!
