- Hi Tammie,
How fun to be returning to Disney World with your family! My boys are 17 and almost 13, so I will share their favorite "must-do" attractions in each of those parks with you:
Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, Dinosaur and the Kilimanjaro Safari. They also enjoy watching the shows (the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The Musical). My boys really like the self guided walking tours as well (Maharajah Jungle Trek and Pangani Forest Exploration Trail).
Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion. They also love watching Wishes and the enjoy the Main Street Electrical Parade in the evening.
Hollywood Studios (this is my boys favorite park because of the thrill rides): Tower of Terror, Rock 'n Roller Coaster and Toy Story Mania (get Fastpasses for this first thing because they run out) . Be sure to watch Lights, Motors, Action and the Indiana Jones shows. Watching Fantasmic! is a super cool way to end the evening.
At Downtown Disney, depending on how much time you have, you may want to let your guys loose to hang out in DisneyQuest for a little bit. This 5 story virtual gaming mecca is a favorite for teens who love video games.
Wishing you a wonderful vacation with your family. Please let me know if I can assist you further,
