    What are the best sights and activities for an 11-year old boy? I'm afraid he will find much of the sights 'babyish', but this is our first trip to Walt Disney World and I want it to be special for him.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Joice ~

    A first trip to Walt Disney World is always super exciting. My boys have grown up going to Disney World and I worried that they may start feeling the same way. However, I have been super excited to see their interests change and find that Disney World offers tons of fun activities that older boys enjoy. Here are some ideas for your son:
    * Parasailing at the Contemporary Resort
    * Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
    * Fort Wilderness Archery Experience
    * Ride-Along Experience at the Richard Petty Driving Experience
    * Surf Lessons at Typhoon Lagoon
    * Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom
    * Disney Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure in Epcot

    At Downtown Disney, check out:
    * Characters in Flight
    * LEGO Imagination Center
    * T-Rex
    * DisneyQuest
    * Splitsville

    If your son is a thrill seeker, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest, Star Tours, Test Track, Mission: SPACE, and Space Mountain are great to get your adrenaline pumping.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We will be hEAR for you up until you embark on your pixie dusted trail!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
