    Val Asked

    Hello, I will be traveling to the Disney and was wondering what parks are best suited for my 8 year old son? My mother is a senior and she will not be going on any there a discount for her?

    Hello Val!

    Thanks so much for visiting me here at the Moms Panel with your question.
    You'll find that there is plenty for your mother to enjoy in the parks, even if she's not one who enjoys rides. There are stage shows, parades, nightly fireworks and so much more that will make her feel like a child at heart all over again! There is unfortunately no seniors discount on admission tickets.

    Your 8-year old son is at a great age to enjoy everything at Walt Disney World! There really is something suited for him in all four parks. It really just depends on the amount of time you have to actually spend in the parks! You'll definitely want to visit Magic Kingdom. Be sure to check out the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom interactive game. Stop by the Firehouse on Main Street U.S.A. on the way into the park to get started!

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is another great park for your son. Toy Story Mania!, Star Tours, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular and the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show rank highly on most boys' lists.

    Animal Kingdom is my favourite, family park. The Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition is the perfect family attraction. There's really nothing quite like it! DinoLand U.S.A is sure to be a big hit with your son as well. Be sure to make time for the Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The musical as well.

    If time permits, Epcot is great for all ages. Agent P's World Showcase Adventure is another interactive adventure around the park that will surely delight your son. Featuring Disney's Phineas and Ferb characters, it's a big hit with the younger set and provides engaging fun for the whole family as you tour around World Showcase.

    I hope this helps with your planning Val. Feel free to write me back if you have additional questions.
    Wishing you a Magical time planning your trip to Walt Disney World!
