    We Book our first trip to wdw for April 11/19 and are staying at the All Movie Resort with our 10 year old what are thing that we cant miss out for his age. We already booked Chef Mickey for breakfast on the day we arrive where else do u recomend we eat

    Hi Erica,

    Sounds like you are planning a great vacation for your family!  Chef Mickey's is a really fun restaurant and a great way to start a vacation!  I also have a ten year old boy, so I asked him for his ride/restaurant recommendations:

    • Magic Kingdom  - Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Pirates of the Caribbean, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.  Whispering Canyon Cafe, located in the Wilderness Lodge, is just a quick ferry ride away.  We love the food and fun at this restaurant.
    • Animal Kingdom - Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, Kilimanjaro Safaris, Dinosaur.  We love the Tusker House for Breakfast.  It's a buffet featuring Donald Duck and friends.
    • EPCOT - Soarin', Test Track, Cool Zone to sample Coca-Cola products from around the world.  Biergarten in the Germany Pavilion is a restaurant our family enjoys.
    • Hollywood Studios - Rockin' Roller Coaster, Indiana Jones, Toy Story Midway Mania, Fantasmic.  I know you're from California, so if you've seen Fantasmic at Disneyland, it's my opinion that the California version is better -- although both shows are amazing.  Tower of Terror is a great ride, unfortunately, my 10 year old doesn't endorse it. He thinks it's creepy and doesn't like not knowing when he'll drop.  You know your own child best, so if you think he would enjoy it, I highly recommend Tower of Terror.  This park has some of my son's favorite restaurants.  He loves 50s Prime Time Cafe and Sci-Fi Drive In.
    • Downtown Disney - I don't know if you are adding the Water Park fun and more option, but my son LOVES Disney Quest!  There are a lot of great things to see in Downtown Disney and T-REX, a dinosaur themed restaurant run by the same company that runs Rainforest Cafe, recently opened.
    Have a magical vacation!
