    Hello! In a little over a month I will be going to Disney for my son's 8th birthday. I have read most of the other blogs, could you suggest some ideas for an 8 year oluod boy; character dinning or things that most boys would enjoy. Thank-you

    Hi Julie,

    I have a 9 year old son and on our most recent trip to Walt Disney World this summer, he had two things that he loved and is still talking about several months later. Those were the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and going tubing at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an amazing interactive game throughout the Magic Kingdom. This is a fun way to see the parks in between rides and attractions. Along the way, you are on a mission to help save the Magic Kingdom from the Villains that are trying to take over. You will receive a complimentary pack of trading cards and map to use and each day you return to the Magic Kingdom, you can receive another set. Even after our trip, my son enjoys going through his collection. As a special birthday gift, you could purchase a special collector's binder to store all of these special cards. I was able to find this binder for our son in Disney Clothiers on Main Street, USA.

    We also took my son on a water tubing adventure through Sammy Duvall's Watersports at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The smiles that lit up his face during this exhilarating experience were worth every penny. It is a great way to spend some time away from the busy parks while still having a blast!

    When I asked my son just now which character dining has been his favorite over the years, he said it was the Best Friends Breakfast with Lilo and Stitch at 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Resort. However, his two favorite places to eat are not character meals, but just as fun. They are Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I hope this helps you plan a magical celebration for your son! Happy early birthday to him.
