Teens on attractions

    Amy from IA Asked

    I'm planning on taking my daughter to BBB but am looking for a recommendation for my 12 yr old son. He's mature for his age so pirates are not his top priority. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Hello Amy!

    This is such a great question. I have a princess who loves the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a buccaneer who loves becoming a pirate and a teenager that I don't want to feel left out. Even though he is "too cool" for many experiences, I know how much it means to him to have something special planned just for him.

    Luckily, no matter your age, Disney has that something special! May I suggest checking out Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre? They offer all sorts of cool experiences here you may enjoy together, but my favorite is the parasailing. Another fun water activity is a surf lesson available at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. No need for prior experience, he'll get the attention he needs to be hanging ten in no time. Last, there are lots of special tours available throughout the Walt Disney World property, covering a range of topics. Perhaps he'd be interested in one of them and a special day centered around him?

    Whatever you choose, I am sure all of you will have a wonderful time creating magical memories to last a lifetime. Thank you again for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.
