    Hi! A large group of us are going to WDW June 5th-11th & staying at the AOA. The group includes two 8 year old girls & a 3 1/2 year old boy. What are the can't miss activities that we should plan? I do have ADR for several character meals.

    Jo-Ann, you've come to the right place! Your trip is just around the corner and before you know it, you will be packing your bags and on your way.

    For the girls, I would highly recommend a Princess dinner either at Cinderella's Royal Table or the Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall (this may be one of the aforementioned reservations). If you aren't able to get one of these, lunch or dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant would be my next suggestion. Most girls that age might love a makeover fit for a princess at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. If they are in the mood for a little adventure and sleuthing, head on over to the Magic Kingdom and check out one of the newest activities, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. This is a great way to keep them interested in between rides and shows. I've done it once and had a blast and I can't wait to share it with my nine year old this summer.

    For the little boy, I would suggest the Disney Junior - Live on Stage show at Disney's Hollywood Studios. It recently added some of the newest characters such as Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Doc McStuffins. The Kidcot Fun Stops at Epcot are a great way to keep the youngster's attention while you explore the different countries in the World Showcase. He may even learn a custom or two from the native cast members. Last but not least, the Pirates League is a great way for him to enjoy a fun transformation himself (if the girls go to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique). He'll get a unique pirate name and be turned into a swashbuckling hero himself!

    I hope you have a blast on your magic-filled vacation.
