    can my 17 year old sons go to the park without an adult?

    Hi, Myrna!  Your sons can indeed go into the theme parks without an adult.  I know my now 18 year old daughter probably preferred it that way sometimes!

    I have at times in the past let my oldest daughter go on ahead of us, if I was still getting her younger sisters ready; and there have been occasions where she wanted to do something at a different theme park.  She was probably just about to turn 17 when I began allowing her to park hop on her own.  I figured if New Jersey trusted her enough to give her a drivers' license, she probably couldn't do too much damage on her feet in a theme park!

    I hope you and your sons all have a wonderful time visiting Walt Disney World!
