    What video(s) can we show to an 8 year old and a 5 year old boy to try to get them excited about going to Disney World for the first time in May 2022? We told them about the trip today, but they really don't know much of anything about WDW.

    Hi Mark! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your kiddos are around the same ages as mine so I know just how special this vacation will be for your family! There will be SO much for your kids to explore and experience that is perfect for this stage in their lives. Make sure to have your camera handy because you will want to capture it all!

    I have a few suggestions for videos to watch to get your family extra excited for your visit! First, head to the Disney Parks YouTube channel. This is an extension of the Disney Parks Blog and has a ton of information about the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks! If you go to "Playlists" and scroll down to "Walt Disney World/Planning Tips," you'll see "Sonia's Best" videos at that link with some great information!

    If you do an internet search for "Walt Disney World promo video" some short videos that show a lot of theme park highlights pop-up. Some are more recent than others, but they are all perfect for building excitement. If you have Disney+, there are a ton of videos about the theme parks that are also the perfect build-up for a vacation. You can find some Disney+ suggestions in this great article from planDisney.

    Of course, I can't pass up the opportunity to point you in the direction of planDisney's planning videos. Our library contains TONS of information, but if you head to the "Must-Dos" videos, you might find some that will fill your mouseketeers with anticipation!

    I hope this helps, Mark! Please let us know if you have any other planning questions.
