Attractions for teens

    Amy from PA Asked

    We are avid Disney guests. Our daughter is now 16. What are some special things you recommend for teens on property? Sadly, she is too old for Bibbidi Bobbidi these days!

    Hi, Amy!  It's always a pleasure to help a fellow Pennsylvanian here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My kiddos have been visiting Walt Disney World Resort since they were little Mouseketeers.  Now that they are middle schoolers, one of the reasons why we return to The Most Magical Place on Earth yEAR after yEAR is that there truly is something to appeal to every guest, regardless of their age.  I would be happy to suggest some ways that you can make your teen's vacation practically perfect in every way.

    Now that my kids are older, we spend quite a bit of our vacation time in the theme parks experiencing all of the thrill rides.  If your daughter is also a fan of exciting attractions, I would highly recommend attending a Disney After Hours event.  The lower crowds during Disney After Hours mean that you can experience several popular attractions with very little wait time.  These events are great for older kids who can stay up late.

    I would also suggest that you explore the Enchanting Extras Collection.  With over 100 unique experiences throughout Walt Disney World Resort, you're sure to find something to add a little extra pixie dust to your teen's visit.  Your daughter is now old enough for many of the unique access tours that are offered.  Perhaps she would also enjoy an activity such as Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise or the elegant Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room.

    If your daughter would like to relax and unwind during your vacation, it might be nice to pamper her with a spa treatment.  Even though she has outgrown Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, it doesn't mean that your daughter can't express her Disney side with a fun character look.  Character Couture makeovers are perfect for guests of any age who would like a fun hairstyle and makeup look inspired by a favorite Disney character.

    Now that your daughter is older, I would recommend involving her in the planning of your trip.  My kids love to help plan new experiences on our vacations, but they also enjoy the traditions that we've had since they were little.  Just remember, you're never too old to soar with Dumbo the Flying Elephant or to get a hug from Mickey Mouse!

    See ya real soon!
