    Where can 16-20 year olds go for fun while the parents go to Jellyrolls and other 21+ places? DisneyQuest is too kid/preteen geared and so are campfires /animated movies. We can't find anything "mature" enough for them, so they end up wandering

    Hi Cindy,

    I hear you! My daughters are in that age range, and I'm sure they would feel the same way about DisneyQuest and campfires. The great thing about a family vacation at Walt Disney World is that you can find entertainment for all ages, and we feel comfortable allowing our daughters to go places without us there.

    Here are three suggestions that might fit the bill to entertain your younger family members:
    • The AMC Downtown Disney Movies 24, which shows first-run films of all types, not just for kids. The theaters are luxurious and have great food options.
    • Splitsville, the new bowling alley with a twist at the Downtown Disney West Side. Even if you don't have a lot of bowling experience, this is a fun time, again with yummy food choices.
    • A concert at House of Blues if there is something appropriate and appealing on the schedule during your visit. My 15-year-old and her friend had an awesome time at a Fall Out Boy concert there last month.

    I hope that gives you some ideas. You will have a better time on your night out if you know your teens have found something they enjoy as well. Please let me know if I can be of any other help. Enjoy!
