    Hi Erin! My DD (11) wanted to ask you a ? since you have DD of simliar age. What r some fun activs for tweens? Not int in DQ. She is outgoing & adventurous, not too girlie. We r doing special time w/each DD & she's not sure what to do. Thanks!

    Hi Shannan,

    I'm thrilled to help your daughter. I have a LOT of experience with preteen girls at Walt Disney World.

    For starters, I'll point you to a similar Mom Views question that all the Moms panelists got to answer about what to do with older girls at the parks. You may also want to check out an article on the independent website DisneyFoodBlog.com called, "Disney Food for Families: 10 Tips for Dining With Teens at Walt Disney World."

    And now onto the real experts - my three daughters, ages 12, 12, and 15, all veterans of dozens of visits to Walt Disney World.

    C says: "Horseback riding at Fort Wilderness was a blast. I also like when we rent bikes and boats."

    J says: "The Wild Africa Trek was a great time. I loved walking over the crocodiles."

    L says: "I liked when we did the Candy-Around-the-World project." This was when I took the twins to each country in Epcot's World Showcase. We spoke to cast members in each country and asked them for their favorite sweet representing their home land. We bought one from each and tasted them all. Decadent, but so fun.

    We'd love to give you more detail about any of these suggestions. Just let us know what you need.
