    Going to WDW Feb 8-13 with my daughter for cheerleading. Also bringing my 6 year old son and want some special things for him to do in between cheer commitments. This will be his first trip—do you have a Top 5 MUST DO suggestion?

    Hi, Melanie! You might be asking yourself why a Disney Mom with three daughters is answering a question about a boy. Well, my girls are among our family's  few girls - I only have nephews, so I've got lots of trips geared towards the boys.

    My Top 5 MUST DO for Boys:

    The Pirates League at the Magic Kingdom is a "plunder-filled" fun time. Get a pirate name, choose pirate garb, and maybe find a bit of pirate treasure.

    Jedi Training Academy at Disney's Hollywood Studios lets your youngling train in the ways of the Force. Spots are limited, so sign up the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost as soon as you arrive at the park.

    While you're at Hollywood Studios, check out Toy Story Mania! See Toy Story friends as you play a variety of carnival midway style games. It's always fun when your little guy beats you at one of the games. 

    At Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom, your son might see some of his Disney favorites, such as Donald Duck, Goofy, and Mickey Mouse. This buffet meal is always a hit with the guys in my family.

    Epcot has the Kidcot Fun Stops. Collect stamps, do a little creative coloring, and meet cast members from around the globe. It's a good place to sneak in some rest for weary feet - they have so much fun, they won't know you gave them a break.

    Have the most magical time with both of your kids on your upcoming trip!
