    We willl be traveling to WDW in April and i was wondering what rides at Magic Kingdom would you suggest for a 12-year-old? Thanks!

        Hello Adonna!  I have gathered my 14 year old and my 12 year old to help me with this question.  These are a few of their favorites and ones that they "must do" every time they go to the Magic Kingdom.

    Here are some suggestions:

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    Astro Orbiter
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin  (Believe it or not, this is STILL a favorite for them!)
    Jungle Cruise
    Mad Tea Party
    Monster's, Inc. Laugh Floor (Not a ride, but it is too funny to miss!)
    Pirates of the Carribean
    Space Mountain
    Stitch's Great Escape (Neat show!)
    The Haunted Mansion
    Tomorrowland Speedway
    Tomorrowland Transit Authority

    I hope this helps and, of course, you would need to decide if your child would enjoy or can handle these attractions.  I had to put that since my boys are looking over my shoulders. ;)  Have a wonderful and magical vacation!
