    It's been 6yrs. since our last visit with my two boys ages 11 and10. Now we coming back and with not just the four of us but three more adopted children ages 6,7,and 13 months. How can we celebrate this and what are some good fam rides we can all enjoy?

    Congratulations, Samantha!  I love this kind of celebration!

    Okay, for the family rides, you'd be surprised how many things you can all do as a family.  Many of the attractions at the Magic Kingdom are family friendly.  I've always taken my kids on the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, It's a Small World, and the Jungle Cruise.  You'll find more, but those are the ones my girls go back to every trip.  Oh, and Buzz Lightyear is a must do for my gang.  There's nothing like working out a little sibling rivalry than on this interactive attraction.

    EPCOT has the Living With the Land boat ride and Spaceship Earth, which are great for any age.  And definitely check out the variety of shows taking place through the World Showcase.  You'll find all sorts of entertainment, from comedy and bagpipes to drums and rock and roll.

    Don't miss the safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  It's a great attraction for kids of all ages, with a great opportunity to get a glimpse of their favorite animals in a natural habitat.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios has Toy Story Midway Mania, which is another great interactive attraction.  My kids could ride this all day, if it wasn't for the Muppets 4D attraction, another family favorite.

    Celebrate with a character meal at Chef Mickey's or the Crystal Palace, or plan something extra fun like the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage.  Maybe plan one day where each child gets to choose something for the family to do that iwill give that particular child the happiest memories of the vacation, whether it's a meal somewhere or an attraction.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
