Mom And Son On Run

    HELP! We are coming to WDW in August 2013. My then 15 DD and my 9 DS are going on the safari trek. I need some ideas for 10DD and 8 DS. Think my daughter is too old for BBB & my youngest son is scared of pirates. Any ideas?

    Hi Lorraine,

    Out of curiosity, I'm wondering why the whole family isn't going on the Wild Africa Trek. I've done this with my own children with great success. Children eight years old and up are welcome to participate.

    However, if you're looking for other ideas ... Your daughter may be too grown up for the BBB, but she may like a real makeover or spa experience. The spa at the Saratoga Springs resort has special services for children such as mani/pedis and "my first facial." You could also get her a real cut and style at the Ivy Trellis Salon at the Grand Floridian.

    Many boys LOVE DisneyQuest at Downtown Disney. This is a giant indoor arcade with several floors of fun. There are also archery lessons at Fort Wilderness, as well as fishing and boating.

    For either gender, parasailing at the Contemporary resort is a special treat. I did this with my children when they were 8 and 11 years old. I thought it would be frightening or intimidating, but it was a real blast. There is also water skiing and a variety of other water sports available there. 

    Please let us know if any of these sound good and we'd be happy to provide more detail. Or if these don't fit the bill, let us know and we'll be happy to offer other suggestions.
