    We will be traveling with my 5 year old niece and my 2 1/2 year old twin nieces at the end of July. We want them to be able to share some special experiences with each other, but the age difference makes that difficult. Any suggestions?

    My daughters have the same age/gender configuration as your nieces: three girls with one three years older than twins. Now my girls are 11, 8, and 8, but we made several trips to WDW when they were 5 and 2. I felt like that during that time period, it was actually quite easy for us to stick together because they were all still interested in "little kid"  activities. (A slightly more difficult period was when my oldest was 8 and the twins were 5. The oldest was wanting to ride roller coasters when the little ones were still fixated on Toontown.)

    But back to you now ...

    Your nieces can share almost all their Disney experiences. I would reserve several character meals during your stay. The classic character experience for young girls is the Cinderella's Royal Table breakfast or lunch at the Castle in the Magic Kingdom. I think all three of your girls would enjoy dining with royal celebrities. If reservations for the Royal Table are not available (as is often the case), then try to reserve the Princess Storybook breakfast at Epcot. Other character meals that would be fun for your nieces include the Crystal Palace, 1900 Park Fare, the Cape May Cafe, Tusker House, and the Playhouse Disney meal at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Your nieces can also go on almost all the same rides. Some that quickly come to mind that they would all enjoy include Small World, Peter Pan's Flight, Cinderella's Carousel, Dumbo, and  the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. (There are many, many more.) There are also plenty of shows at the parks that all your nieces would enjoy. A favorite of ours is the Voyage of the Little Mermaid. They would also all enjoy the Lion King show, the Finding Nemo show, and the Beauty and the Beast show.

    And don't forget the pool at your resort. My girls spend hours and hours of every WDW vacation just playing together and having fun at the hotel pool. Have a great trip and let me know if you have any more specific questions.
