    I have a 6 year old and a 13 year old. Which disney park can we go to so both of them can have fun? They really want to ride on rides.

    Hi, Laney!  I have three daughters, with the oldest being nearly 18 and the youngest just four.  The thing I love most about the Magic Kingdom is that it has always been one place I could go and everyone is happy!  Most of the rides there, the kids can do together.  That means there is less time spent by the younger sibling waiting while the older one gets to enjoy the rides.  Even the rides that most people would think are "little kid" rides, my oldest daughter enjoys and rides happily with her sisters.

    You will find some thrills (Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain), which will definitely appeal to your older child; and you'll have the classics, like the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean, which are favorites of our whole family.  Even the moodiest of teenagers will have a hard time not tapping a toe or clapping hands to the Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! street party at the Magic Kingdom, and the Wishes fireworks are a site to behold and an amazing spectacle for all ages!

    I hope that helps with your planning!
