    We have done Grand One, the behind the scene Safari, Pirates and Pals, etc. Children are 11 and 18. Any other amazing suggestions? They decline the Imagineer option. This panel was so helpful for our first trip - looking for help again!

    Hi Michelle,

    Have you investigated the options available through the Disney Youth Education Series?  Their programs are pretty extraordinary and there are offerings that will appeal to your eleven-year-old and your eighteen-year-old.  I can personally vouch for the Leadership Excellence and American Story programs.  I have done them with my high school students.  Guests can participate in these programs whether you are traveling as part of a school group or as a family.  

    If your kids wish to know more about caring for the animals at Disney's Animal Kingdom, they could opt for lunch with an Animal Specialist at Sanaa.  Catch-and-release fishing expeditions or parasailing adventures can be booked by calling (407) WDW-PLAY.  You could also consider a fun dinner show at the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue or the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show.  

    If you think your kids might enjoy a spa experience, check out the spa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort.  A full listing of their services can be seen at  

    I guarantee that there's no shortage of amazing new experiences to have at Walt Disney World.  If none of my suggestions spark your interest, feel free to post a follow-up question and we'll give you some more ideas.

    Have fun planning your next magical journey to Walt Disney World!
