    I will be traveling with my 12 year old grandson and his friend. Neither of them like the rides/roller coasters. Which parks would interest these boys at their age the most? Is Disneyworld geared for younger children? Thank you.

    Hey Elaine!  Have you guys looked at DHS?  There are two large attractions which are rides but for the most part there are some really great shows that they might truly enjoy.  From the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show to the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular.  I think they also might enjoy Toy Story Mania where they can battle each other for the top score of the day.
    When you speak of Disneyworld I'm not sure if you mean all 4 theme parks or the MK, but honestly not one park is only for younger children.  There is truly something for all ages at each and every park.  I promise you I enjoy the parks as much as my children do!
    Have them go on-line at and check out the parks.  There they can find a complete list of attractions and a little bit of information about each of them.  I think that will help them to decide which park they would like to visit the most.
    Thanks so much for the great question and for coming to the Mom's Panel.  I hope you and your grandson have a magical WDW trip.
