    My family is planning our 7th trip to WDW in Sep. My sons are 14 and 11 (youngest will celebrate his birthday there), and I want to make new memories. Any suggestions for a tour or other "cool" ideas for teens/tweens to keep the trip magical?

    Hi Michelle,

    My son is 12 and we're always looking for new activities to enjoy as well. If you are heading to Walt Disney World near the end of September, I highly recommend the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    One of our most recent activities that our son loved was a "candy crawl" in Epcot. Inspired by the Disney Food Blog, we had our son select a different type of candy in each country of World Showcase. It was a fun evening, he sampled treats from all over the world, and got to chat with Cast Members from many nations.

    This vacation, we hope to do archery at Fort Wilderness and rent a boat from the Grand Floridian marina. The Sea Raycers are a really fun time for adults, tweens, and teens!

    We've also done the Tomorrowland Dessert Party as well as Fireworks cruises.

    Participate in a movies under the stars at your resort, go fishing at Port Orleans Riverside, or take in an animal program at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Horseback riding, tubing, or a round of golf are great activities too!

    For tours, I would recommend the Wild Africa Trek. Superb! Also look into Magic Behind the Steam Trains, as well as Dive Quest.

    With a little imagination, you can plan a whole day around a theme. Start your day in Dinoland, have lunch at Restaurantosaurus, afternoon ice cream at Dinosaur Gertie's in Disney's Hollywood Studios, with an evening meat at T-Rex Cafe!
