    Hi!, What are great ideas for birthdays for kids 10-15 year old boys?

    Hi Heather! Boys tend to enjoy something active and even daring and a sit down birthday just wouldn't do for a celebration to them. I suggest an exciting tour or activity during your vacation.

    The best  tour out there in my mind is the new Animal Kingdom Wild Africa Trek. If they have any interest in animals at all this is the one to book for the family. You will come up close to many animals while enjoying your own private safari with your own animal expert. Add to that a yummy breakfast or lunch out in the middle of the savannah and this is great for all ages.

    You might also consider a bowling "party" at Splitsville in Downtown Disney. This is a few facility and you enjoy a great meal or snacks while you bowl for an hour or so. Don't worry about balls or shoes as they supply it all. The music is on and all you have to do is get the ball down the alley and the fun begins.

    There are other super fun recreation options out there to choose from. Parasailing at the Contemporary or fishing from many of the lakeside resorts offer fun that is out of the ordinary from the day in the park. You can get reservations ahead of time (recommended) by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.

    If they are golf fans let them try a round of golf on one of the great courses at Disney.....again don't worry about equipment as it all can be rented there. Perhaps a day in the water park, Blizzard Beach is more their fun and add to that a few hours for the miniature golf right outside the entrance for a break in the action. 

    Again I suggest an activity over a sit down party for a teenage or pre teen boy. They love the attention but in their own terms! Still include a cake while you are there...they are never too old for the fun edible part of a birthday!
